Most dog-owners are considerate of their neighbors and clean up feces left by their dogs. They scoop up the droppings, place them in a plastic bag and continue to walk their dogs. Some dog-owners, however, simply let their dogs do their business along the sidewalk and leave without picking up the mess.
