I didn't put the subject in the post title, because I wanted people to actually read this post, haha. Today I wanted to talk about dog poop. Well, I didn't want to talk about it, but it's something that needs to be talked about.
I'm not going to start full on ranting or anything, but I hate when people let their dogs poop anywhere and leave it to be. Most people aren't like that, but some people are. I have seen people do it in other people's yards, and it almost makes me mad. I might not be the one with the now messy yard and I might not be the one that will end up picking up the poop, but the responsibilities of owning a dog aren't always fun games of fetch, affection during feeding time, and snuggling on the couch together.
I'm not fancy when it comes to picking up dog poop. Leftover plastic bags from Target work just fine for me, especially because with seven people in our family, grocery shopping comes in quantity! Of course there's the complicated process of trying to jam Target bags in your pockets, but hey, it works!
I admit I'm not usually a forgetful person (I still remember things from when I was like one or two) but for some reason I often forget to take bags with me on my daily walks with Chris. Maybe it's because it's very rare for Chris to poop in the middle of the day (not in the morning or not at night after his meals) that I find it hard to remember to take bags with me.
On the rare occasions that Christmas decides to poop on someone's lawn and I don't have a bag with me, I head home immediately, get a bag, and head back to the spot where Chris pooped. Luckily nobody has seen me do this, so we don't have to deal with ranting neighbors!
There are some crazy inventions nowadays when it comes to dog poop. I'm not interested in lugging around a metal pooper scooper every day during our walks and that Magic Poop Collecter thing Chester was talking about a few weeks ago (he wasn't too keen on it either!) is just weird. For now I'll just continue to pick up my dog's poop with Target bags and run home as fast as I can when I forget to bring a bag in the first place!
