Eww, yucky...

..."But oh so necessary!" says Education Officer, Eva, as she finishes up her 'Responsible Pet Ownership' talk with preschoolers at a childcare centre in the Northern suburbs.

It happened when the topic of hygiene and toileting came up, the squeals and "eww's" rang across the room with shocked expressions from most the 3-5 year olds. They could not believe that we were suggesting that to clean up after our dogs you should pick it up with your hands and a trusty poo bag! "But can our pets go to the toilet?" asks Eva of the group and the realisation quickly dawned.

Following this revelation, the children were more than happy to engage in practicing their best poo picking up method, along with grooming and vaccinating Rusty, ensuring that he remains clean and healthy for another day...

Hmm, where shall I "go"?
