Don't poo poo this!

Posted by Abigail on Tuesday 26th of January 2016

Everyone who knows me, knows that I love dogs having been blessed to be brought up around gorgeous German Shepherds and now being lucky enough to share my home with a scrummy little curly cross breed (pictured - isn't he adorable?!).

As a dog lover and proud owner, do you know what makes me absolutely furious? And why I get furious almost every time I walk down my road with my little guy?


My dog poos. Everybody's dog does it; in the park, on the beach, in the garden, on the pavement - they all do it. Part of being a responsible dog owner is PICKING IT UP!! I would prefer it if my dog's poo came out, ready wrapped in a neat, odour free parcel (perhaps with a pretty flower design on it - why not?) that I could then pop in my pocket ready to be deposited in a flower scented bin. But that's not the case so I whip out my little black bag, scoop up the poo, tie the handles and hey presto - all done! It takes longer to type it than it does to do it, so why do some owners not do it?!

Come on folks - it's really not acceptable to leave a pile of poo for someone else to tread in. Not only is it seriously disgusting to end up with it on your footwear, it's also very unhygienic and can spread nasty diseases.

And if it's not enough to want to be a responsible dog owner, also bear in mind that if the Dog Warden catches you ignoring your doggy's dos, you could face prosecution and a fine.

Sigh. Rant over!
