Woof, woof ... please clean up

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.
