Dog excrement is disrespectful

I HAVE lived on Newsham Farm Estate for the past 30 years and this has always been a lovely housing estate.

However, over the past few months, because of irresponsible dog owners the area is becoming continually covered in dog excrement.

The path that runs from Holystone Avenue through Holystone Close to the shops is particularly bad.

Why should we have to leave our homes and tip toe around dog excrement at our own garden gates because disrespectful owners do not have the decency to clean up after their animals.

I am sure these people would not like it outside their home, so please, have some respect for others and clean up after your pets.
