While I was at my favorite dog park today, I was viciously attacked by an unfixed male Pomeranian. You may laugh when you see the picture of one below. They look like stuffed toys, but I will tell you this guy was literally the wildest dog I’ve ever encountered. And those who know anything about dogs know that it’s the smaller dogs that tend to be the craziest.
People, Get Your Poop Together!
We’ve noticed that the trend seems to take place more often on open trails where waste bins are few and far between. We get it. It literally stinks to drag your dog’s solid waste any amount of time, so it’s easier just to drop it on the trail. Why not skip the step of bagging it? If you’re on a trail, just use a long stick or branch to sweep your dog’s poop into the underbrush and give the planet a break?
For dog-friendly areas that are more frequently traveled, we understand that you look like a bad dog-owner citizen if you let your dog openly defecate in an area without doing anything about it. So you bag it… but don’t people get just as mad at you if you drop it someplace nearby instead of putting it in a trash can? Take a few extra steps and find a waste bin!
