WHY do people have to sneak around and write to this newspaper about one of Pete Burrows' dogs doing droppings that he has obviously not noticed?Now, at the age of 66, like him, I think I have always picked up my dog's mess. Luckily, decent, responsible bystanders have had the decency to tell me, twice, that while I was not looking my dog has done something on the ground. I have thanked them very much.Like Pete, I pride myself in doing the decent thing.I wonder, do they notice how much time he has given to voluntarily serve Seaton - on the town council and helping with lots of local causes?Maybe, if they have nothing better to do, they can do the same?
