Scoop that poop — 27 Comments

  1. Education is a must: we must all scoop the poop! Love the bag you designed & made; it’s beautiful.

    And we’ve had that happen with a tick. Very freaky. It freaked Mom out so much, she took me to the vet. (And the vet calmed her down.)

    Happy Monday!

  2. I collect as many images of signs as I can – some of the best ones are silly or funny (and occasionally gross) and stick out in your mind as a result… there’s some goofy stuff out there!

  3. I think they need a poop patrol that will hand out tickets for non scoopers. A bag idea along the trail is good so no excuse. A few signs posted that violators will be ticketed may help. That really ticks me off about that tick Torrey. Hugs and Happy Monday.

  4. I was just telling Sugar how The Scottie House yard is the neighborhood “poop spot.” Our HOA even posted signs in our yard asking people to clean up after their pets. It doesn’t seem to be working. I do think if there were designated poop stations in our neighborhood complete with bags to use, we would see results. Much love, The Scottie Mom.

  5. We just use plastic grocery bags. It’s a different kind of recycling. I know the special bags are more biodegradable, but I just use what I have on hand.

    Ticks are evil creatures. You have to make sure to get the head. Tweezers work well. We flush them down the toilet. It’s been a long time since we’ve seen a tick, though.

  6. Hi Y’all!

    It’s peeps who don’t pick up after us who cause us to be banned from walking places where others walk.

    Think y’all have some great ideas. Some of the places I walk in public have those dispensers and a waste disposal attached so the Human doesn’t have to carry it on the rest of the walk.

    Y’all come by now,

  7. It just really surprises me that so many people still don’t clean up after their dogs. Everyone has stepped in it, and no one likes it, so why don’t they catch on?
    We walk in quiet places mostly so don’t see other people much, but we have run across signs that they have been there….I’d like to catch them, and I think your Mom’s idea of offering them a bag is a great one! No one can get offended by that.

  8. Oh, we do not like to hear about the tick mischief!! That’s icky! We agree – you are so right, Roxy, better to say nicely “Hey, do you need a bag? I’ve got a spare” then to tell them they’re a goofball. I had the opposite happen once! I was picking up poop at the beach, and a woman walked by and said, “Oh, you don’t have to pick up here!” I yelled after her, “Yes you do!” Oy. Some people are just stupid beyond words. And they wonder why the bay is polluted… Sigh.

  9. My dog trainer does exactly what you’re thinking of doing. She has these little rolls of bags with her all the time, and when she sees someone not scooping, she says exactly what you’re planning. The people look really embarrassed and then pick it up. So, I think it’s worth a try!

    I personally think that more garbage cans along popular dog walking routes would help. I really hate having to carry a bag of poop a long way… don’t worry – I do it – but I hate it. And, I see that others leave their bags next to the path to pick up on the way back (and then they seem to forget sometimes).

  10. Ah-hah! I keep seeing your comments all over Roxy, but every time I try to click on your name to visit your website it forwards me to a different website instead. I’m so glad I finally have the opportunity to poke around and comment! :)

    Ticks are the one creature on earth that will make me run screaming for the hills. Yikes!

    To KB: You can get charcoal insulated “purses” that zip the smell away and you don’t even notice its there! I’m hoping to get one real soon as I also hate carrying them.

  11. In the winter, the second step is to wear a headlamp or bring a flashlight with you if it is not light out. I literally had to search out a pile of poop by smell the other night! I also have two pairs of shoes with poop on them sitting on the porch ready to be cleaned. I find that there is more poop left in the winter because people can’t see it in the dark. *sigh*
