Housing officers are to keep dugshots of tennants dogs? What about those who own their houses or flats? Can their dogs foul the streets with impunity?

What goes " Woof Woof Bang"? A terrierist.

Sounds more like a terrierist chasing a parked car.

The war on Terrier droppings could be easily solved if the city decides that it is not going to pickup doggie droppings for the next month. After 30 days of ten tons a day, 300 tons of it lying around is sure to catch the attention of everyone. I think then that the people who let their dogs drop will soon get the message when they have to fight the mess while walking their dogs, being the ones whose terriers created it. People will continue to walk their dogs on the same pathways each day and when they have to fight the problem themselves they will come to understand what is causing it. Next the city can put up free baggies on a telephone pole at the worst spots with a notice to the dog owners so the people get the idea of what they are expected to do. Sometimes you have to just let things happen the way nature decided them to happen to help people get the message. It isn't the dog's fault.

I am a dog owner and I think it is disgusting that owner's leave the mess anywhere, I for one never have I alway's clean up after my pet it is not the dog's fault but the owner's and anyone doing this should be fined on the spot.

We live beside a beach and most people are responsible owner's but one lady did not pick up after her dog unknown to her the dog warden was watching and fined her 40 which she had to pay there and then. She assured me it would be the last time she would not pick up after her dog so maybe this policy work's.

Unfortunately, I have seen a wee issue with leaving wee bags, certain dug owners scoop and bag. Yet, they then bollox it by then hanging the bags of duggie doings in nearby bushes, including those in other fowks gardens. There are places that resemble a duggie poo bag Xmas tree.

Surely, dunnderhieds of this ilk that engage in the above offence practice are potentially berift of life from the neck upwards. Indeeed I would submit that serial offenders should be banned from keeping dugs.

Sadly, it appears in some instances dugs have more intelligence their owners.

I quite agree with you Rabbie but responsible owners can take the wee bag's home with them and dispose of them there, the one's who don't are worse than their pet's who only know what their owner teaches them.

Two men are approaching each other as the walk down the street. Both
are dragging their right foot as they walk. As they meet, one man looks
at the other knowingly, points at his foot and says, "Vietnam, 1973."

The other points his thumb behind him and says, "Dog s**t, 20 feet back."

This story came back to bite the council's bum a wee bit after a disgruntled resident at Lancefield Quay wrote into to the Evening Times to complain about the mess left behind by domesticated animals ... only this time it was horses, police horses!

The unhappy resident living near a walkway overlooking the Clyde complained that the sheer scale of horse mess made it a more potent danger than dog dirt:

QUOTE
"The walkway has been done up really well by the city council in anticipation of the Commonwealth Games. It is well used by residents and by people going to and from the SECC and other venues and offices.

It is now a beautiful area, but it is being spoiled not by dogs but by police horses. I frequently see police horses cantering along the walkway and they leave a trail of manure behind.

Joggers, cyclists, tourists and people walking have to negotiate their way round a lot of horse dung.

The horses soil pavements and roads so why don't the police carry poop scoops for the horses, because they leave a much bigger mess than any dog would."

A police spokesman replied:
QUOTE
"As all horses are vegetarians their excrement is completely biodegradable and breaks down very quickly into powder form.

Where required, we contact the local council in the area the horses are in to organise to clean up."

A council spokesman responded to the complaint:
QUOTE
"There is a legal requirement for people to clean up after their dogs and that is what Clean Glasgow is enforcing. There is no law requiring riders to clean up manure left by their horses on public pathways.

Horses are vegetarian, so their manure does not present the same health risks as dog faeces."

I am sorry, but I don't agree with some of the contributors to this discussion who seem to think this is a laughing matter. For some reason or others many Scots accept dog fouling and litter as just a way of life. Sadly, in Scotland it is accepted as such. We as a nation have lost pride in our country. Oh yes we will sing "Oh Flower of Scotland" at football matches and other events, throwing our chests out with pride, while at the same time dropping tons of litter at our feet.

I cite as an example of how low we have sunk as a nation when Japanese students and other Japanese nationals went around the streets of Glasgow cleaning up the litter, as a way of thanking Glaswegians for their support for the Japanese who suffered during the Tsunami. Our newspapers printed photos of these goodhearted Japanese at work on our behalf. Welcome to the city that is going to host the Commonwealth Games!

It is too late now for Glasgow Councillors to reverse dog fouling or the litter problem. It is part of our culture whether we like it or not. Some of the responses on this discussion confirm this. It is a big joke. Travel on any train or bus in Glasgow and surrounding areas and by the time you reach your destination you will see litter all over these vehicles. Look out the windows during your journey and what do you see? Litter everywhere.

I went to school in Canada when I was evacuated during World War Two. We lived outside the City boundary, so there was no refuse collection service. Every household had to dispose of its own rubbish. This was done by incinerating what would burn, and burying everything else. The streets were spotless. It was drummed into us at school that we must take pride in our commuinity.

I went back five years ago for a short visit. I walked down the same streets. There was no litter to be seen.

So the moral of that ending is that pride in the community has been passed on through the generations in the community where I lived in Canada. It is also obvious that the same thing has happened in Japan. Sadly, pride in the community has not been passed on through the generations in Scotland. This discussion would not be treated as a joke in those two countries, or indeed in many other parts of the world.
