Your Waverley does the business on the borough’s heavy duty dog doo.

In line with other local authorities, ‘Your Waverley’ is taking draconian steps to stop the menace of dog doo which is spoiling our towns, villages and… the countryside.

Ever wondered why there is so much of it about these days? Then ponder no longer.

Is Mary our very own Gillian McKeith?
A Professor of Poo?
After all, You Are What You Eat -which applies to doggies-doo too!

 

This week Mary Foryszewski ‘YW’s’ dog doo guru  – and owner of the successful canine business – Pawfect Dog School gave her colleagues on the Environment Overview & Scrutiny Committee – a little lesson in the subject of … dog poo.

She told colleagues, who however hard they tried, just couldn’t conceal their amusement,   there were now 9 million dogs in the UK – and why there was more poo.

Because dogs digestive systems are not designed to eat commercial dog food! If you put more rubbish in, more rubbish comes out. Many of you will remember years ago when you used to be able to be able to kick it {Poo} and it used to disintegrate because they ate bones, it doesn’t any more because they eat rubbish, she said!

Oh dear – it that that howling bark of commercial dog food manufacturers we hear enveloping  Waverley Towers? Thank goodness Councillor and Deputy Mayor Mary is covered by partial privilege? 

She continues, to say if you looked in her pocket it would hold two or three poo bags. To which her wisecracking neighbour, Councillor Peter Isherwood grinning from ear to ear, piped up – “empty I hope.”   Continuing undeterred,  she outlined why it was necessary for the council to introduce measures and subsequent fines across the borough. Measures that would affect many, due to the actions of a few dog owners who spoiled it for responsible owners. She also mentioned there had been more responses from the public on the subject of dog poo than there had been to the Local Plan.

That’s one thing we at the WW can say about the residents of Waverley they have their priorities in the right order – don’t they?

Officer Richard Homewood said policing the nuisance would be targetted to areas where most nuisances occurred, following complaints from the public, saying everyone recognised it was impossible to monitor everywhere. 

Several Councillors said they didn’t want to see – council employees – “lurking in the bushes.” However, Councillor Ross Welland saw absolutely no reason why dogs shouldn’t be let off the lead, in places like Blackheath in the Surrey Hills?

He is obviously unaware that the villagers there are now calling their once beautiful Area of Oustanding Natural Beauty – a dog sh*t toilet – for hundreds of dog walkers, some of whom are professional dog walkers taking out as many as eight dogs out at a time!

Councillor By-Pass Byham, who never By-Passes litter or dog poo on his Bramley patch – was just a bit concerned, that the council may not have “solid grounds” for imposing fines of up to £1,000 if owners’ didn’t have enough bags, hoping no-one would end up in jail? Officers assured him this was highly unlikely.

If the Executive, followed by Full Council agree, a blanket ban on dog fouling will be introduced across the borough in the next few weeks.

  1. Have spare doggie poo bags in every coat pocket always use them but the old boys are the worst and wont stoop to buy them !!!

  2. Perhaps they cannot stoop to pick it up? Just a thought. However, we understand that the blind and the deaf will be exempt – peopl that is not dogs!

    • Yes – and he wants his dog/s and everyone else​s to run free on Blackheath!! Villagers there will be pleased?
