Careless Dog Owners Spoil Enjoyment
We are privileged to have the publicly accessible Arboretum at the University of Guelph. There, you can enjoy the tranquility of nature with trees, flowers, the stream, the pond and the English, Japanese, Italian and rose gardens with all their wildlife.
Thanks to the abundance of trees, shrubs and plants with nameplates, it's easy to get familiar with many different species. You can also get ideas for landscaping your own yard.
What's not so pleasant, however, are the piles of dog waste you have to try and get around as you walk or jog through the Arboretum. Why do some people who bring their dogs to the Arboretum not clean up after their pets? They spoil the enjoyment for everyone else.
