I have witnessed the quite justifiable rage on MN about non-scooping dog owners.
But why do so many people think it's Ok to drop their litter including dirty nappies and take-away scraps all over the place.
I could quite often not bother to take dog shit bags with me as there are more than enough discarded plastic bags festooning the hedges to clear up the shit from a herd of elephants!
I spent quite a lot of time this morning cleaning up dog vomit from my dining room carpet full of bits of chicken bone that my dog hoovered up from the footpath last night before I could stop him. Thanks for that I guess I should be grateful that he was only sick as it could have been much worse.
IKWYM, have considered becoming one-woman ranting campaign against dropped food (yep, 2/3s-eaten pizzas, 1/2 eaten chickens, 1/2 eaten takeaways which for soome reason people around our way like to leave in garden hedges ... oh, and all those Haribo sweets that get chucked all over the place. And the mad woman in the park who leaves coleslaw sandwiches spatchcocked all over the path for the pigeons.... Them and the and dirty nappies apparently thrown on the pavement (or is it foxes/gulls emptying the bins?)...
Yep, was going to become the cagouled crusader of crap, but CBA yet.
One of mine has multiple food sensitivities, most especially wheat, and though they're pretty good about not picking stuff up from the floor just occasionally she'll find a sandwich or a sausage roll and my heart just sinks because I know she'll wake me up at 3am the following morning to be let out to produce explosive diarrhoea, and then every hour after that if I'm unlucky.
It's people who leave their dog's shit in the middle of the footpath that really riles me, though. It's not as if they even really have to pick it up - on a rural footpath, middle of nowhere, it's probably better off flicked under the hedge than in a non-degradable plastic bag. But no, there it sits, right in the middle of the path where everyone will tread in it. It's always the giant soft orange Bakers poos, too.
I take my dogs out and they go in the scrub/ long grass off the footpaths even if it is a wee, but the amount of dog crap that is proudly sitting slap bang in the middle of the path just drives me insane. WHY???
