Sunny Jatara, Mullumbimby Creek

I walk my dog many times a week at Brunswick on the dog beach there. I take a bag with me to pick up rubbish as I walk, but rarely is there rubbish.

What there is, again and again, are people who ‘do the right thing’ and put the poo in a doggy bag – and then leave it there!

I’m sure people tell themselves they will pick up on the way back, but more often than not, that doesn’t happen.

A load of poo in a doggy bag is just not going away – better, the poo is left and nothing done! (Like a certain Mullumbimby gentleman who allowed his huge dog to poo and then, with his friend shrugged their shoulders and kept on walking along the sand.)

We can all do so much better. I take an old backpack, put others’ uncollected poo-bags in a plastic bag in my backpack till I reach the bin. With such a beautiful beach, a wonderful place to let our precious loved fur kids to meet and greet, it seems like some respect and gratitude are missing at times.

Let’s just make more of an effort. There is so much happening in the world that is out of our control – this isn’t!

Do you realsie that keeping a single dog is actually cruel as dogs are naturally pack animals? Humans are such stupid, narcissitic self serving idiots with their stupid emotions..
