WARNING ! WATCH OUT WITH WHAT YOU TREAD (STEP ON)
The word citizen is directly linked to the idea of city, where we all live as a society. Being a citizen means to be subject to rights including: political (access to political participation, elect representatives, freely express M15, etc), social (access to certain social services) or legal (equality ithout distinction of race or class).
Most dog owners are people who love them and assume the responsibilities they involve as our classmate said in his post “feeding them, taking them out for a walk or going to the vet when they’re sick”, apart from those kind of duties and of the one of not abandoning them, there is one that shows respect for the animals but also proves citizenship, and being a citizen means to be subject to rights and duties.
To be responsible should be one among the caracteristics of being a good citizen.However, people can be responsible and not be a good citizen, it sounds like the famous phrase “to be or not to be” , nevertheless you can understand it when they leave their dog’s dung all around they ARE irresponsible and bad citizens. I mean their obligations with other citizens have to be first, even though they seem to be insignificant.
It is said when you step on a dog’s dung you should not complain about it because it should bring you good luck. However, I do not agree and I suppose neither do you, what you get is great annoyance.
