"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 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 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!"
"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"
"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 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."
