Irresponsible dog owner ruined first walk in year

Shame on you for not picking up after your dog on Tuesday in Princess of Wales Park in Saltair.

Shame on you for not picking up after your dog on Tuesday in Princess of Wales Park in Saltair. I was the recipient of what was left behind.

Unfortunately, this was not discovered until having lunch in a restaurant after the beautiful walk in the park. While my meal turned cold, I was out in the parking lot trying to rid myself of the problem. More distressing was having to clean the interior car mats as more of your pooch’s poop was located. I was being very careful where I trod, as recovering from surgery I wanted to be sure of my footings, but obviously not careful enough. This was my first trail walk in over a year. Too bad it had to be ruined by your carelessness.
