And they call it puppy love…
It goes without saying, but, Greystones is damn near perfect.
All we’ve got left on our fix-it list is building a top-of-the-range hotel, figuring out a way to make those miserable train station guys smile, and convincing morons to stop letting their dogs shit all over our town.
The latter is clearly a problem close to the Greystones Tidy Towns gang’s heart, and, hey, they’re going to do something about it.
Saturday, February 18th sees the launch of their Anti-Dog Fouling & Green Dog Walkers campaign.
Here’s the spiel…
The Green Dog Walker scheme is a positive and pro-active way to encourage and support responsible dog ownership. It aims to increase awareness of the problem of dog fouling which is among the most common forms of littering.~
Green Dog Walkers will receive a complimentary Green Dog-Walkers hi-vis vest, Green Dog-Walkers armband and a ‘doggie bone’ poop-bag dispenser with a roll of bags. By becoming a Green Dog Walker you have ‘Taken the Pledge’ to always clean up after your dog, to carry extra doggie bags and to gladly give others a bag for their dog if they ask for one. By wearing the green armband you are indicating that you are a responsible dog–owner participating in and supporting the scheme.
Which sounds like a damn fine idea. And one that might be a tad more effective than those unenforced €150 fines.
