I don't think so...

Where did you ever think this would happen? Here we are taking a walk, and out of the corner of my eye, I spot this sign. Please pick up after your dog. Truth is it sounds and looks funny - who would in their normal right mind ever dream of taking Fido for a walk, allowing him to hold up the procession while he goes potty "number 2" - you patiently stand there and let him do the deed. When he is done, you carefully unwrap the doodoo bag, and without flinching pick up the parcel and continue on your stroll with a bag of droll.

I guess it is a good thing because unlike some countries - one way to get fit is take a walk down the street and see how much dodgeball you have to play with "landmines" scattered all over the place. So, I give my city the heads up nod of gracious approval for taking the initiative and stepping out by errecting these signs in all public parks and walk ways to ensure that not only Fido may enjoys his walk, and Fidos' owner has the joy of carrying back home the parcel from the sidewalk, leaving it clean and free of debree for us to go out and enjoy a walk in the park.

I think that it is a very good idea to pick up what fido drops, in the UK you get fined if you dont pick it up, and in Holland it dosent matter you can even walk in it so be careful when you visit and go for walks
