Firle Road is not a dog toilet

For some years now some dog owners have chosen the last 40 metres or so of Manifold Road cornering with Firle Road as their dog’s latrine.

The dogs are lovely and quite obedient until near the chosen spot to pee and poo (usually against the bricks edging my garden).

Here is where the dog takes control. The owner obeys, stops, looks away. Project pee and poo concluded, both walk away. I don’t like dog’s mess against my garden or anywhere else.

Looks disgusting, it smells, you can tread on it and take it indoors. It’s a public health risk. I throw water and citronella fluid to try to remove the filth and smell. I am an old person. Cannot go on doing this service for you.
