I got a note from someone this week who is clearly very upset at the fact that dogs are allowed to foul our graveyards. Goes so far as to say that some people  take them in there for their daily run which leads to the problem in question. All  we can do is to ask them to refrain from this habit which is causing so much  grief and upset to those who have loved ones buried there.
