My dog Roxy and I walk the beaches of Southern California. She hunts for chicken bones and burgers left behind. I pick up trash often in the form of children’s toys. While disgusted with crap parents who can’t look after their kids, I try to make the best of it. Enjoy a laugh at left-behind Barbie Mermaid while I remind you to pick up after yourself. Apparently, dinosaurs are still a thing as are plastic straws and plastic everything else. Too many people leave messes wherever they go.
