FAR TOO MANY DOG OWNERS SHIRK THEIR RESPONSIBILITIES

I read The News article about the man who was charged with allegedly throwing dog feces at a Kenmore couple that did not clean up after their dog. The people claimed they were on their way to their car to get something to do the job. I don't buy it. If they stopped to let their dog relieve itself in the parking lot, then why didn't they have the proper implements needed for this chore?

It reminds me of when I used to ask my kids to do something and they would reply, "I was just about to do that." I have two dogs and I pick up after them. But many people let their dogs do their duty right in the middle of the sidewalk and leave it sitting there for all to dodge.
