Don’t point fingers at wrong poo-petrator

Letter writer insists she always cleans up after her dog

I have newly moved to the area and just love it here but I had a little incident today at the Agassiz off-leash area (riding ring). I arrived and took my dog into the ring where she proceeded to go poop. I picked it up with my bag and made another lap. I then leashed my dog (grabbed another bag from the dispenser) and began my walk around the park. There were only one other couple at the park at the time (playing soccer) and I passed them as they walked back to their car.

My dog squatted and peed by a tree (no poop). But when I returned to my car after going around the park once, one of those two people put a note on my car saying I do not pick up my poop. Well, I always do and was very offended that these people, of which I said hello to and got no response from, would so rudely place a note under my windshield wiper.

You could have spoken to me and I would have showed you that whatever poop you think you saw was not from my dog (and I often pick up after others). You were driving a navy blue car and I was in the Toyota Echo.

This was the first negative experience I have had here and I hope it is the last as I don’t appreciate being accused of something I haven’t done.

Thank you,

Paula Stubbings
