I saw a nanny at Santa Monica Dog Park on Friday, July 30. She was blonde, tall, slim and dressed in black pants and a black sweater. She was at the Santa Monica Doggie park inside the big dog yard with a small black dog and two blond children. The first child was a girl very blond and around 5 or 6 years old. The second child was around 3 or 4 years old most likely 3 and a boy also blond. When I came into the big dog park with my big dog the little boy was drinking from the dog fountain. It is low to the ground and several dogs were surrounding the little boy. There is always water sitting inside the bowl and the little boy was licking inside that water and drinking from the faucet. He was on his knees and the little girl was running around with water all over her face so she most likely had drank from that as well. The water fountain has a taller fountain and the low down fountain. I have never seen any person even drink from the higher one as the tall dogs jump up and drink from that as well. But this little boy was lapping up the left over water sitting in the bowl. I said to the little boy oh baby don't drink from that it's dirty you will get sick where is your mom. He was laughing and just ran off way up to the back of the doggie area. I walked up there and saw a very blond lady and asked her "is that your little boy and girl". She said well no I'm their babysitter. I told her the little boy just drank out of the dog water fountain and he was actually lapping it up like a dog. The fountain is very far from where she was sitting on a bench. She said to the kids oh well don't drink from that we have a bottle of water in the car. I said to her you better tell his mother he could get extremely sick from drinking that water. She just ignored me but another lady came over to me and said a few minutes ago the little boy had the big dog scooper and had scooped up his dogs poop. This lady said when the little boy tried to dump the poop into the trash can he missed and the dog poop and everything else fell all over him. A little while later I saw the nanny had left the doggie area she was sitting on a bench and letting the two children ride their scooters up a hilly area near the doggie park. She was close enough and was calling to them but I'm just mentioning that as they both had razor scooters. This happened at 10:15 a.m.
