Letters to the Editor

Letter | Clean up after your dog

This is an open letter to whoever is walking their rather large dog in the environs of the 8100 block of West Mercer Way.

Unfortunately, today, our pleasant amble was ruined as we counted five large piles of feces left lying at the side of the road. Please, if you are the person walking this enormous animal, clean up after your pet.

Dog poop is a health hazard, and not to clean up after your dog is a disgusting habit.

We have walked this route for years, and this is the first time that we’ve been visually assaulted by piles of poop — so we assume this person may not know that on Mercer Island (and everywhere else), it is important to clean up after your pet.

Deborah Ehlers and Carole Danielson
