Monday Mischief: How To Get That Poop by Abby

I felt bad mom was so mad at me, but I was just being a dog--no one's perfect!
My mom got very mad at me Saturday because I did a dog thing she just can't understand.  My sniffer is excellent and so I can smell things before my mom can even see them.  This is a skill most dogs have and that I recommend you use when the fragrance of other dog poop is in the air.

Before my nursing home visit, mom took me for a quick walk down the street so I could pee first, which I did.  As I passed our neighbor's yard, I got a whiff of some poop and made a mental note of it.  Then on our way back, mom even ran along with me so I could get some running in.  I charged toward home (or so she thought), but actually I was charging for that poop I smelled and pretended to cut across our neighbor's front yard to our house but stopped and grabbed a chunk of poop on the way.  My mom freaked and yelled at me, trying to get me to drop it.  It did fall out of my mouth, but I recovered it before she could kick it away.  Yay me!  But boy, was she mad!  She said she will not let me go into anyone's yard again, no more cutting through yards.  Daddy heard the whole thing and didn't even stick up for me.

Note from mom:  It really annoys me that some dog owners are too lazy or irresponsible to pick up after their dogs.  At the park, there was a pile of dog poop only 10 feet away from a garbage can and the free poop bag station.  Grrrrr!

Yep, there are lots of clods out there that don't care what their dog does and they aren't about to clean up after them either. I know some.

Have a terrific day. ☺

We watched a man waiting for his dog to get done pooping and then he proceeded to leave it right in front of everyone! I don't get it! As for a dog eating poop, I've never had a dog that does that thankfully! Ewww! Abby, we're with your mom on that one!

Gross! That's pretty mischievous! I think I side with the humans on this one!
Especially about the non-picker-uppers. What baffles me is when people bag it, but then leave a full bag of poop behind on the ground - I don't get it!

I hear you - I think it's the same theory that some people think their s*** doesn't smell...well their dog poop isn't for them to clean-up. Not very considerate.

This was a great Monday Awwww, I couldn't help but laugh. Dogs will be dogs and dog-doo is what dogs do! I agree, everyone should be responsible, I've been on walking paths that were more dog poop than road, it was gross, and it smelled!

I am ashamed to admit that I also go for the poop!
