Pet owners need to be more responsible

I am proud to live in a community that has leash and scoop laws, and most people obey them.

Occasionally, however, I see dog poop, in various stages of decay, along the sidewalks of Forest Grove. Who wants to live in a town littered with dog poop?

Even worse, I occasionally see dogs off leash and running freely while their people ignore them and chat on cell phones! Any dog, no matter how well-trained, might see something across the street and run out into traffic.

Please, everyone, take care of your pets and be responsible for them.
