I’m sure all of you who are dog owners are responsible dog-poop-picker-uppers.
However, if you are a dog owner, chances are you know of people, or have witnessed people who do not pick up their dog’s poop.
And, if you’re not a dog owner, I’m sure you know of dog owners who do not pick up their dog’s poop.
The park in my area is full of dog poop.
Tired yet of the word dog poop? I could switch to the emoji…💩
Here’s a picture of part of the park I walked Tucker in this morning. He is, as some of you know, Mr. Dog Poop Eater and it’s driving me mental. Each one of those trees you see in the picture had a pile of dog poop near it.
It’s true. I’m not making it up.
He tugs so hard toward the dog poop scent he gives me whiplash. My poor arm and neck – it was just healing nicely and now, I’m back to feeling stiff and awkward.
Here’s proof, in case you didn’t believe me.
The poop is hard to see on the brown soil, the bark mulch and among the dead leaves from last fall. The grass hasn’t turned green yet, but will as soon as we experience the first major spring rain…until then, I have to outsmart the Beagle nose which is easier said than done.
My puppy is not impressed at my method of resistance.
Given what happened yesterday, he’s anticipating a repeat of my tug of war with him. On our afternoon walk I saw him sniff very intently at a pile of dead leaves and figured, it’s just dog pee odour that has him attracted. But then he lunged and dove in and started munching which had me leap at him and pry his jaws open only to see half-eaten dog poop in his mouth. Stupid puppy – doesn’t he understand this 💩 will make him sick?
I stuck my hand down his throat and dug out what I could and then cursed all the way to the beach (about 20 steps away) where I managed to wash off most of the disgustingness.
Anyway, it’s a problem.
Unfortunately, so is this:
I’ll let someone else rant about the discarded, used covid masks.
