There they go again, the couple walking their black poodle. The animal is not the toy size; he’s a standard poodle and at times a slight challenge for the woman to handle. So why isn’t the husband walking the dog? Because he is picking up trash along the roadway with what I call a grabber. He even goes down in the bar ditch if he sees a candy wrapper or soda can tossed there. A lot of dog lovers live in my community. Most are careful to pick up after their dogs while others act oblivious and walk on. This couple picks up after their dog and cleans up other people’s trash as well. They don’t live near me. I don’t know them, but by their actions I know I would like to.
