YANBU. I am a dog owner. It is DISGUSTING how some owners don't pick up after their dogs.

No OP - you are sooooo wrong.

You do the following:-

1. Run to dog owners house
2. Remove shoe
3. Wipe the unmentionable on aforementioned twats dog owners front door handle
4. Run like feck.

Yanbu, I did likewise today. It's disgusting!

I was running, I always look where I'm going so not sure how it happened!

Thankfully, my DH who has a much stronger stomach than me cleaned my shoe. And it's given me the impetus I needed to replace my crap running shoes, so not all bad.

Last time something similar happened was when I passed a bloke emptying one of these portable loos besides a roadside cafe and stepped in shit that had leaked out. Those shoes had to be binned, that was horrific!

Oh I hate it, our school run is terrible, it's along a nature trail pathway that is always covered. I've had it on ds's school shoes one morning so had to go back home to get his trainers it was so bad and in the pram wheels and the smell is unbearable sometimes.

I was at a fair today and lots of dogs there, there was a young boy (12/13 at a guess) with his small pup which was pooing. Once the pup was done the young lad whipped out some bags from his pocket and cleared the mess and popped it in the bin. I was honestly shocked and thought wow if a kid of 12 can do it why do some adults just walk on by and leave it. Wanted to give the kid a medal.

Regina really? You're not serious, right?

Aliceinvodkaland Sat 25-Jul-15 19:55:09

ReginaBlitz Sat 25-Jul-15 20:18:00

grin No of course not, it's one of my ultimate hates in life makes me sick.

Eugh SO rank yanbu at all!!!

SeenSheen Sat 25-Jul-15 20:49:53

Yanbu - guaranteed the dog owner will not have seen it. Funny how so many have selective blindness when it suits them.

dirty cunts

KittensOnAPlane Sat 25-Jul-15 21:03:56

disgusting - if you know who they are you can report to the warden, i have heard there is a £1,000 fine (not verified this!)

Our house runs along a public walkway/gully, between our house and next doors house, which leads to some council garages and through to another road. The last few weeks someone has taken to dumping their little black bag of dog poo at the end of the walkway path.

There is now a pile of about 15 black dog poo bags. Have tried following three different people up there hoping to catch the right person in the act - no luck so far.

How can someone be so shameless as to scoop up their dogs poo in public view - so they look like they're doing the right thing, then as soon as they reach this hidden spot just dump it !

Do these bags degrade ? Am i to expect a stink soon ?
Sorry to go off on a tangent OP. YANBU.

We live next to a beautiful park which is virtually unusable thanks to dog shit. The dog owners pretend not to know what their dogs are doing in the bushes but they know darn well. I cleared up 4 shits within a yard of my back gate last week.
We also do a 2 mile school run on foot and the amount of dog poo we have to dodge is horrendous. One particularly bad one is the incontinent dog that always shits randomly all across the pavement, same place (near the school). Not in one big pile though, it's randomly strewn across the path so you might miss one bit but another will get you as you step aside. I get apoplectic with rage about dog shit and although many dog owners are responsible it has tainted my view of dogs and their owners.

Took my little boy out to the playing fields and lake today for a big of duck feeding action. Clearly loads of ignorant dog owners had been out before me, including one person who left a pile of fresh dog crap 2 foot from one of those dog waste bins. I bloody hate it.

A few weeks ago some ignorant b@stard let their dog crap on my driveway. I'm assuming it was a dog, going by the size of its deposit, it could have been a small elephant.

WaverleyOwl Sat 25-Jul-15 21:30:42

I have a question. I have 2 dogs, and pick up after them as best I can wherever they go. If, however, they had a dodgy tum, and made a hard to clean up mess, would you expect me to go above and beyond to clean up or accept that I'd done the best job possible? Disclaimer: DH and I may have gone back after walk to wash the offending area as much as possible with water. Not always possible, though.

Callmegeoff Sat 25-Jul-15 21:36:27

I think it's usually the same dog, I have a dog and I have noticed he likes to poo in the same place which of course I pick up. You often see similar poos in the same place because its the one owner not picking up.

ReginaBlitz Sat 25-Jul-15 22:09:59

Waverley- your dog your problem tough if it's "not always possible" either prevent your dog from having the shits or go back and jet wash the fucker up. Disgusting! I was mortified once when my dog shat and I'd left bags at home (late for school and nursery) so after I'd dropped everyone i detoured to the local shop and bought something random just for the bag and went back and picked it up, my dog MY responsibility if my dog ever had the shits I wouldn't take her on a walk simple.

MikeEhrmentraut Sat 25-Jul-15 22:28:13

How do you know what the consistency of your dog's shit is going to be like though until you're out on the walk ?

WaverleyOwl Sat 25-Jul-15 22:32:28

Okay, Regina, I was just asking for an opinion. Sometimes these things happen with no prior warning. Not sure how I would prevent them from having the shits. That would be an ace superpower to have grin. In my defence, I clean up as best I can, and if it happens on a pavement will go back and rinse off if it is at all practicable. Not sure what else you would expect. A cork up the bum?

SorchaN Sat 25-Jul-15 22:40:26

I used to live in a town where the playing fields were also the local park. I swear to god, the dog owners got some kind of kick out of letting their mutts shit right on the try line. Poor local rugby team...
