[OPINION] Please, Pick Up Pooch’s Poop!

Tracy Porosoff is an alert “06880” reader/frequent Pic of the Day photographer. She’s also an avid — and perturbed — dog lover. She writes:

Westporters are fortunate to have such a wonderful place as Winslow Park to bring our dogs.

The people are friendly. The dogs are too.

There are acres of beautiful wooded terrain to let your dog run off-leash. And a freshwater stream where dogs can paddle in refreshing, clean water, even take a drink.

Just another day at Winslow Park.

Other resources include a bulletin board of dog-related notices, and a water fountain during warm months for both dogs and people to hydrate after their romp through the woods.

The town even provides trash bags and garbage cans to pick up and dispose of your doggy’s waste.

Idyllic, right?

Unfortunately, some people take these fabulous resources for granted.

Bag after bag of poop litters the park. Despite the presence of garbage cans, people leave their waste on the ground, benches and wherever they choose.

Some are surely inadvertently left. But if everyone takes an extra moment to remember to toss their poop, Winslow’s beauty can be preserved.

So please: The next time you visit Winslow Park, toss your (pup’s) poop!

It looks pastoral.

But beware of poison ivy, at places like Gray’s Creek …

… and Winslow Park, by the Westport Country Playhouse.

It wasn’t the biggest snowfall. It shouldn’t have caused as many power outages as it did.

But it sure was pretty.

Here are some scenes, captured around Westport by alert “06880” photographers.

And now — okay. It’s March. We’re ready for some spring shots!
