Leave No Pile Behind Campaign Challenges Dog Owners
The Somerville Dog Owners Group is encouraging all local canine owners to take the Leave No Pile Behind pledge.
Leave No Pile Behind is the simple message of the Somerville Dog Owners Group (som|dog) campaign to keep the city's streets clear of dog waste.
The group is cheerfully encouraging dog owners to take the Leave No Pile Behind pledge on the som|dog website. Not only can dog owners pledge to do the minimum--clean up after your dog every time--anyone may pledge to go "Beyond the call of doody.”
For that, you just need to promise to "not only to clean up after my dog every time but also to clean up poop left behind by irresponsible dog owners."
While you're there, sign up for the som|dog Newsletter. The most recent issue came out via e-mail Tuesday and it's packed with useful news for local dog owners.
Our favorite story in the current newsletter: Members of som|dog recently delivered pastries and coffee to Dept. of Public Works staff to thank them for maintaining the city's dog parks.
