Next came a mother with 3 toddlers. The children rolled around on the grass, soaking up all the leftover droppings from the beautiful lawn. I am pretty sure one of them rolled over the same spot where a Mastiff left its dinner from last night. I can't help but think how disgusting that is, not to mention the health effects on the young ones. These children are exposed to E-coli, Salmonella, and other parasites from dog droppings. Something should be done to keep these children safe at the park. We need dog owners to stop using our parks as their pets' toilet.
P.S. And don't use my front lawn either! The urine leaves a distinct yellow spot on my lawn by killing the grass. Have some consideration for your neighbors.
