So I threw all of my picnic food in the bin because it made me feel like vomiting my spleen out. DH says I was being a bit OTT but honestly, I do not like dog shit.

WIBU to waste food after a dog shit on my picnic blanket?

why did you let it shit on your picnic? couldnt you have shooed it away?

What? Did it squat down and do it in front of you?

So a dog just strolled up to your picnic and took a dump and you didn't do anything?

No one likes dog shit. YANBU.

Once I was about to take a bite of a sandwich in a park and a small boy (not one of mine) came up and pissed into the bushes behind me. There was a golden arc of urine centimetres away from my head. Put me right off.

The word you're looking for is 'shat'

HTH

I use the phrase "Don't rain on my parade" i think i'll replace it with "Don't shit on my picnic" grin

Sorry I have not set the scene well. I will try again.

DH and DS and I set out for a picnic yesterday afternoon. We found a nice spot under a tree by the river, put our blanket down and laid out our picnic food/plates etc. Then from out of nowhere, this three-legged dog came up and proceeded to do a right sloppy shit on the edge of my picnic blanket (also in bin, but was only £3.99 from Home Bargains so not lost much) His owner pursued, laughing. "She could have picked a better spot!" she said. I laughed and said not to worry, even though inside I was screaming like an Edvard Munch painting.

The owner collected the cack and DH cleaned the blanket with a wet wipe. DH and DS continued tucking into their butties whilst I looked mournfully at mine. Try as I might, I couldn't get the image of the bum gravy spraying out of this dog's bum onto my blanket. DH asked what was up and I said I'd simply lost my appetite due to the heat. I went and threw my sandwiches into the bin. DH said he knew it was because I was feeling icky because of the dog doo and that I was being silly.

Worst bit was about an hour later we walked to an ice-cream shop and I had a devon toffee ice cream and DS started going "ha ha mummy's ice cream looks like that dogs poo from the picnic"

MeRightYouWrong - The phrase I use is "Well, that pissed on my chips"

Honestly, it all happened so fast, I couldn't stop him. I don't think the dog could stop things either. He ws bounding over (as best as he could on three legs, poor thing) then he got to our spot and all hell broke loose.

You know who it is when we have the squits? It's uncontrollable. I think that's what the dog had. Dog squits. There was nothing that could be done.
