Is it my imagination or is there a lot more dog poop on the sidewalks these days? We here at home call it ‘shoe-poo’. I live in a very dog friendly walking town and I would hope that people demonstrate common courtesy…but, hope is not a strategy as my husband would say.
Most of the time you can find the requisite poop bag in the pockets of my various outwear. There have been but very few times that I have forgotten to have one handy but I head back to the car where there are some stowed behind the front seat. In any case…why would someone be so irresponsible by not picking up after their dog? Do they think they are the only ones using the sidewalks? Seriously. They must.
I have witnessed the sly irresponsible dog walkers too. When they walk or run their dogs, they blaze a trail ahead and pretend not to notice that the dog has slowed and is walking funny. My dog waits to go for a walk so she can poop. So you can’t tell me that these IDW’s (irresponsible dog walkers) aren’t aware of their pet’s elimination habits. And how would they like to poop on the run?
I mean, consider the mind-set of a person who leaves their dog’s poop for someone else to step in? Completely self-absorbed, narcissistic, self-indulgent, self-involved, egotistical, self-centered…I think you get the picture. Do these IDW’s flush their toilet after they poop? Or do they just leave it for the next person to discover and take care of?
I wonder if they know they are breaking the law too? Of course since they are to be what I described above, then they don’t care. Many communities have city ordinances that mandate scooping the poop. And, have made it easy to do so by installing plastic bag dispensers around popular walking areas. How hard can it be? But no, they are just plain inconsiderate.
For everyone’s convenience, I have included a link on the How-to’s of picking up poop:
