What’s that smell?

Please scoop your dog’s poop.  Its no fun stepping in dog poop on the way to your car, the mail box, checking the martin box and at the garbage area.  It is no fun at the beach when you lay your towel on a freshly covered pile of dog droppings.  Dog poop left on the ground can run off into local water ways contaminating them with bacterial waste and provide nutrients for algae blooms. When you scoop your dog’s poop please make sure to use a biodegradable bag.  Thanks for your help!
