This blog on dog poop woes reminds me of the whole Friends of Animals fiasco that blew up in early Fall. That blog also evolved into the whole question of should military people overseas be allowed to have pets.
As a "Civvie" I find it frustrating how many military people list their animals on NOH with the excuse that they are PCSing, retiring etc. and can't bring them along. I even emailed one gal to ask why, and she replied that she "did not want the dog, and so why should she bring it to the States"? I also overheard a young Navy woman talking about her puppy with a friend in the Commisary. She was going to get rid of him because "she wanted to travel and he was in her way". Banning animals on base for any future in-bound military folks is definitely an effective tool, but for all those who live off-base it doesn't change anything. It would take a strong military policy on overseas pet ownership and I don't see that as being anywhere close to their focus. It will probably take a bunch of bad PR for anything to happen. And I'm sure at some point that will happen.
As for the dog poop issue; strong public pressure will help, along with a building by building campaign. Parents do need to ensure their kids are picking up the poop or do it themselves. I saw a young boy, 8 or so, walking a puppy on school property. The puppy pooped, and they moved on. It is gross, and will indeed get worse as the weather gets nicer. Take ownership of your base, and don't expect the MP's to do it for you.
