Dog owners must carry bags 

Dear Madam

Well done to the local authority in the UK which has announced fines of 100 pounds if a dog walker is found not carrying a plastic bag to pick up dog mess, regardless of whether the animal has fouled the pavement.

We suppose this is called “going out properly equipped”. It’s a good idea and one which should be adopted all over Tenerife. Didn’t Adeje say they were going to do this as well?

All a dog owner has to do is to tie a doggie bag around the handle of the lead and they are prepared, as well as showing other people that they intend to carry out their responsibilities.
