Staffordshire council have decided to spray the normal brown deposits fluorescent pink to show how much of a problem it is.  It’s a nice start but why not go a step further, like Conwy council in Wales, and provide a solution.  Conwy have invested in 500 Dicky...

I went with the intention of buying...

crufts – 4th and final day

I write tonight with sore feet, aching legs and a brain that’s turned to mush. Sunday at crufts was even busier than saturday and the public were on a mission to spend money.  Barry and I spent many hours demonstrating the Dicky Bag to inquisitive visitors which resulted in numerous sales and some very silly comments.  It turns out that men seem  to think it’s ok to use bags of dog...
