Dangers of Dog Poo

Elisabeth & Becky 2Every time we make a television documentary, there’s not enough on-air time to do justice to all the individual stories we collect in pursuit of the overall documentary, and we end up having to make tough decisions in the editing room – some a lot more painful than others. Case in point: eight-year-old Elisabeth Willoughby. When we were filming Dog Dazed, we met Elisabeth and her mom in Liverpool, England to do an interview about Elisabeth’s letter to the editor of her local newspaper. Elisabeth has been partially blinded by a parasite commonly found in dog feces and she wanted to go public with a warning to dog owners that picking up dog poo isn’t just an esthetic concern. It might save a child’s eyesight.
