I took my dog out on a very short walk as I had a busy schedule and he usually does about 2 poos when I take him out, so I took out 4 to be on the safe side but I used all 4 so he must be poorly, on the way home he did another but I had no poo bag. This woman witness me not pick it up and screamed at me from across the road, I shouted back and said I didn't have any and than I'd go home and get some more and come back but she shouted that she's got some nappy bags and told me to wait and brought them to me I said Thankyou and tried explaining but she didn't want to hear it. Has anyone been in this situation before ?

It was a honest mistake on your part but she probably thought you were lying as lots of people don't bother to pick up poo.

Yes I have been in the situation where mine did such a sloppy poo that bags were useless. I went home and got a bottle of water to wash it away but fortunately it was so early in the morning I managed to do it before anyone was around.

I've done the same - had to take the dog home and go back with a bottle of water to wash down the pavement. But she was rude. If I saw someone walking without picking up the poo I would "assume" they had run out of bags and if I had any (which I usually do - even without the dog!) I would offer some.

Genuine people are grateful, others are shamed into picking up!

In some parts of the country you can be fined for not carrying bags. For all she knew the "I'm going home to get some" was complete bollocks. Maybe she's fed up of dog shit everywhere and lazy owners who don't pick up.
I have a dispenser with a roll of bags and always carry a spare roll in case it runs out. It's part of having a dog.
Bitey I had the drop a tissue or two and scoop experience this morning. Boak!

The worst thing is when the dear dog decides to keep moving while having the squits and leaves a trail which is next to impossible to pick up every bit. blush

It's happened to us all. I've given people bags and have tactically buried a poo in the woods to save my last pop bag for the street walk home (we were on to about poo number 6 that day)

I also find it highly likely that at one point or another PestDog has done a poo and I wasn't looking in the right direction in the <10 seconds it takes him to poo.

We all do the best we can.

It’s never happened to me , I have bags in every pocket so always have at least 10/12 with me , I can see why she was cross . Personally if I had run out and the dog pooed I would have knocked at a couple of doors ( assuming it was a reasonable hour of the day) and asked if anyone had a carrier bag / nappy sack / couple of pieces of kitchen roll , as frankly few people are going to believe that you are going home to get a bag and will then go back .

We’ve been caught out a few times. But the one that sticks out is once we were in a well known pet shop and i was looking for something on the shelf and didn’t notice that my darling boy had done about 6 poos all down the isle. A shop assistant called me and i had to do the walk of shame picking them all up and using my hand sanitiser to clean the floor. Good god that was so mortifying.
