Woof, woof ... please clean up

Animatch decided to run this article again .... it is worth repeating.

 

Spring is in the air!  So is the smell of dog poop!  Best time of the year is right around the corner.  A gorgeous time of the year to go for a walk humming a happy tune .... until you step in it.  What the ....?  Such an unfortunate way to put the kibosh on a fine, spring day.  Who are these people who don’t pick up after their dogs; we know they exist because we just have to look at all the abandoned dog poop piles.  There is no dog poop fairy! 

Some believe that leaving it there is not a problem; it is biodegradeable and just fertilizer, right?  Wrong.  Dog feces can expose humans and other dogs to a lot of nasty conditions – parvovirus, giardia, roundworm, coccidia, to name a few.  A heavy rainstorm and spring run-off can easily carry dog waste into streams and rivers, and any waste that ends up in storm sewers usually flows directly into a body of water without being treated.  So, no dog poop isn’t “natural”. 

Next time you see someone walking away after their dog has just pooped, put a huge smile on your face and walk over to them in a friendly manner (it’s not always easy).  Nicely hand them a poop bag and say, “Forgot your poop bag; it happened to me and someone came to my rescue with a bag.  I want to pay it forward.”

 It’s in the handbook people, if your dog poops… pick it up!  Simple as that.
