Dogs damaging herbs

I live on the Brighton trail and literally everybody and his dog passes by my front door at one time or the other

So W. Moore of Oak Bay is amused by the letter regarding dogs peeing on private property. My complaint no doubt will have him rolling in the aisles. I live on the Brighton trail and literally everybody and his dog passes by my front door at one time or the other.

Ninety-five per cent are responsible owners but there are the special few who either do not leash their dogs or if they are leashed don’t care where they urinate or defecate. The front of my yard is lined with aromatic herbs which I not only use to cook with but they also provide a barrier to deer, who do not eat them.

Isn’t it wonderful that the above noted five per cent thinks it is all right for their animals to foul my comestibles, particularly when the other side of the road is a waste ground. Titillating enough for you W. Moore.
