stop dogging me

Some bloggers inspire people to talk about heavy soul-searching topics. Some inspire us to share memories of family, vacations and wonderful meals. Some inspire us to rant about everything from human rights to robot tights. Apparently, I inspire people to talk about dog poop. Still, west-coast Dan tells a pretty funny dog poop story.


The average dog is a nicer person than the average person.   Andy Rooney

That said……….

I was reading over on No Facilities recently about a dog-walking incident . What came to mind was a time when I volunteered to watch my sister’s dog for a couple of days , to feed the beast twice a day and also to walk her around the neighborhood . I can do that .

I thought I could do that .

I’m not a dog person. My family had a couple of dogs when I was a kid . I liked them just fine . Just saying ……… Nuff said…………… That being said……………

    I love this quote!! If you own a dog, you’ve been in this situation at least once. I walked our dog for three years – THREE YEARS! – and always carried the dreaded bag. Never needed it. NEVER. She saved it until she was back in her own yard.

    I don’t know how this happened but the walk came and I didn’t have the bag in my pocket. OMG! But, no worries really, she never poops on our walks. I think my mistake was telling her how glad I was that she saves it until we get home because I forgot the poopy bag.

    Yep, you got it. There was no saving it that day. Believe me when I tell you, she produced an amount that would’ve made a horse happy! But I brought her home, grumbling all the way, got the damn bag and went back and cleaned up.

    NEVER forgot the bag again! Lol. 😂😂😂

    This post is hysterical! Gave me a much needed laugh this morning. Thanks for sharing.

    • Thanks Ginger. Of course that would be the day. You’re a good dog owner to go back.

      Dan is one of the first bloggers I stumbled onto when I moved to WordPress, and I enjoy his posts.

      I commented on his post about the day our dog filled the bag but then stopped again! Ugh. Now we carry multiple bags
