Let’s talk about dog poop! No, seriously.

Happy Monday! Let’s talk about dog poop! Totally serious. Being a responsible dog parent means cleaning up poop, right?

How often do you scoop? Do you know what happens when you let it lay around in the yard? I have to admit to being one of those people who thought that dog poop was good for your lawn. Fertilizer, right? Yep, not so much. Seeing the effects on groundwater will definitely have me picking up that poop immediately and not letting it collect in the yard. Check out this awesome infographic from the cool folks at PoopBuddy to get some more knowledge on the subject.

And speaking of PoopBuddy, DogSplendor is a new affiliate for this innovative service that mails you fashionable and eco-friendly dog poop bags monthly, so you’re always prepared to clean up after your dog.

Dog poo & you!

Seriously folks, if you own a dog, part of the responsibility is picking up after it in public (and private!). It makes me mad/sad to see dogs banned from so many parks, public areas, etc. because some irresponsible pet owners have ruined it for the rest of us.

Bottom line: anything that comes out of your dog’s bottom is your responsibility. End of discussion.

I used to work in an office building in downtown Bellevue, Washington that was dog friendly. Until…. One Monday morning some employees early to arrive were greeted by a pile of dog poo in the elevator. It had been there for at least a day – in a closed, poorly ventilated space. One can only imagine the lovely aroma. From then on, dogs were banned from the building. Though I wasn’t bringing my dog to the office, I was angry that one fool ruined it for everyone else.

This is just another example of ONE type of pet owner, that is not representative of MOST pet owners, but reflects badly on ALL pet owners.

Let’s get real, nobody gets excited to stoop over and pick up warm dog crap in a flimsy plastic bag. But don’t be the jerk that leaves it there and ruins it for everyone else, ok?
