Mayor: ‘God Almighty, Clean Up After Your Dogs’

As the snow recedes, dog poo left behind by irresponsible dog owners is re-emerging. And Mayor Marty Walsh ain’t happy.

Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh is taking aim at dog owners who fail to clean up after their pets, saying “everything is on the table” when it comes to increasing the fines for residents who leave poop on the sidewalk.“They’re picking their dog stuff up, and then if the barrel is full they’re leaving it next to it,” the disgusted mayor said.

    A Message to Marty:
    Hey, Mr. One-Term….You had one job…ONE job to do this winter and you couldn’t even manage to efficiently organize the plowing of the streets yet you have the gall to whine about some dog-poo that, what, your girlfriend stepped in? Why don’t you concentrate on doing something about all the space savers left on the streets? Or maybe do something about the homeless families living on Your city streets?
    The citizens of Boston put up with a lot of needless nonsense this winter because of your inept “leading.”
    “God Almighty”, Martin, you’re sounding a little pathetic right now.

      Chill out, Pep. I think the city did a good job this winter, all things considered.

      BTW, are you really defending dog shit?

        You chill, fart. All I’m sayin is Marty should spend his time dealing with actual issues that effect people in a substantial way rather than wasting one second on the non-issue issues. He might actually do some good for the city, eh?

          Your opinion that dog shit left by irresponsible owners is a “non-issue” is your own myopic opinion. It’s a public health issue. I live next to an irresponsible business which allows a certain neighborhood ne’er-do-well (I’m being kind) loiter about with his little dog. He freely allows his animal to defecate anywhere it wants. Consequently, I stir my coffee in the morning and wash dishes at night looking at a the slowly emerging landscape of shit. If you lived within eye-shot would you feel so cavalier in suggesting this is a non-issue?

            In the real world (where most of us live), if you were ever homeless you would see the Mayor’s whole dogs shit “issue” as a non-issue, and that is fact, not opinion. And I might also say that if you made the effort to call Inspectional Services every day to complain about your neighbor’s alleged dog shit rather than just sit there looking at it (you actually LIKE looking at dog shit?) they would eventually come out, if only to get you to stop bothering them, and cite your neighbor, because as you say, dog shit is a health hazard.
            Here’s three real-world solutions for you; choose one.
            1). Call ISD
            2). Pick it up yourself.
            3). Don’t look at it.
            There; problem, that wasn’t really a problem, solved.

            you must feel tremendously pleased with your self having all the answers. where and upon what subject will your next declamatory triumph be?

            Than you so much for taking time out from your feces-vigil to share with us your thoughts, inane as they may be. Have a swell day!
