"I live on a lake and being able to swim in clean water is important to me because it helps keep my muscles, bones, joints, and heart strong! Swimming in clean lakes and ocean helps to keep aging dogs like me healthy and active."
"I love to dig in the stream behind my home. I love the snow and playing with my human brother and I can't wait to go to the beach this summer! My family loves nature and wants to do their best to take care of the environment in any way we can."
"I love the beaches and I love to chase the waves and dig in the sand. My family always have poop bags so we can keep the water clean so we can all be in good health to enjoy the wonderful beaches"
"I am always the first one to ocean when visiting my grandparents. I'm not a big swimmer, but I love to relax in the water. I look forward to the summer so remember to pick up your dog's waste to keep the beaches open over the summer!"
"Take your garbage with you so the objects don't collect at the water's edge. Just like the ducks, I as a puppy, think everything I find on the ground is meant to be eaten."
"I love the water because it is fun to play and keep me cool in the summer. Please help our beaches open by picking up dog waste. This also helps the little fishes grow big and have a healthy life."
I live in Eastern Passage so I am always near the water and water is such an important part of my life. My family cleans up because we need water for life! It's one of the most important substances on earth. I will protect it always.
My grandpaw is a fisherman, I love getting to spend time with him near the ocean and going fishing! I can’t wait for the water to warm up so I can hit the beach for lots of swimming lessons!
"I love to swim, chase ducks and cool down on a summer day. My family picks up my waste so that we can all enjoy clean water. I don't want my friends to get sick from polluted water."
"I love to help keep our areas clean. We keep our favourite places clean by picking up debris when we are out and about"
"It's important to keep the waterways clean from litter and pet waste so they remain beautiful, safe and fun for everyone - now and for the future!"
