I know, you are thinking, here she goes again with another one of those rants!
Well, it’s just not right. It seems that almost everyone owns a dog or two these days and good on them. My problem is those owners who refuse to pick up their refuse!
Do you think it’s fair that they should walk their dogs in your neighbourhood and let their blameless little pooch use the “big outdoor toilet” and then not take the time to scoop the poop? I mean, I have read stories about Paris and their pooch poop problem but it seems to be getting pretty bad around here. If you go out when it’s dark I would recommend using a really good flashlight to navigate your way! Now when I go out I’m like a bloodhound, searching in front of me for the offending stuff. Last week when I took the empties out, there was a pile of the stuff right in front of the dumpster. I mean…come on people. Now, whenever I see someone walking their dog, I look to see if they are carrying a plastic bag!
My Uncle told me a story about a neighbour of his that walked his dog past my Uncle’s house every day, leaving a nice mound on the lawn. Well, said Uncle finally got p.o.’d and decided to collect the offending stuff for a few days. He then went to the offending dog owner’s house, knocked on the door and when the guy opened the door, my Uncle handed him the bag of poo saying “here, I think you forgot something”. That seemed to do the job.
Does this mean we will have to be out in the dark on patrol? Come on…think about your neighbours and their shoes will ya? I mean yucky!
