Angela Anderson

  1. Here’s a solution to the Poo in the Park.. all dog owners have to go barefoot.

  2. This city is going to the dogs!

    I have my first dog. I finally realized that it’s not the fault of the dog that it humps people’s legs, leaved poop all over the place and barks all of the time… it’s the fault of the owner. I do not go outside with my dog without plastic bags in my pocket (which are always used). It’s a little dog – but still it produces poo which I am responsible for picking up. I’ve given bags to people who give me the excuse “I can’t pick up after my dog, I don’t have a bag” and they just take the bag and walk off. . . . I am disgusted!

  4. Thanks Joanne for confirming your meter was expired when you got the ticket, and for wasting the City’s time by having someone respond to your “problem” when you were admittedly at fault.

    We are sorry that time here in Boise is different than in PA. We only allow 58 minutes per hour, hence our parking meter trap. Thanks for coming to Boise, hope to see you again.
