A taste of FAITH, a touch of LAUGHTER.

Doggie Doo Doo

I had a dog for years, out on an isolated island on the west coast, and never worried about what to do about the dog poop, other than when I inadvertently stepped in it. It wasn’t that much of a consideration until something like that happened.

  (my attempt at illustration, haha!)

I never gave a thought about prevention or collection of any sort, unless it arrived on my shoe. YUCK!!!!! Eeeeeewe! Stench, mess, distress! Clean up! Clean UP!!!!!

I have since, however, become aware and more “civilized” about dog poop collection, all the do’s and don’ts, due to a move to the city. I have had to learn how to deal properly with the poop.


Recently, a Facebook friend wrote a status (complete with pic) about her dog taking up a guard position when she used the facilities at home. She said this:

“Every single time I sit on the throne, (my dog) takes up this position like she’s deeply disgusted by everything about humanity and can’t bear to watch, but feels obligated to stand guard over my obviously vulnerable and incompetent body.”

It made me smile when I thought about a couple of dogs I have cared for that wanted to be in the bathroom with me when I went. WHY?????

I would shut them out and they would patiently “guard” the door until I came out. Well, as the gears which control my weird and ofttimes unpredictable sense of humour began to grind, I just had to reply to my friend’s post:

“Dogs must wonder…..

When you consider our own rather strange and perhaps apparently obsessive attentiveness to the toileting procedure of the dog, it’s no wonder they feel a dutiful obligation, but perhaps a measure of uselessness (apart from an ability to guard faithfully) since we seem to be determined to take care of our own deposit and disposal method in such an equally foreign manner as we do theirs.

It must be a complete mystery!”

I decided to make a blog post out of this (Am I CRAZY??? Or am I just bored? Suffering from writer’s block?). I was looking for a pic for my post when I found this interesting advert for flushable dog poop baggies.

Read the blurb! Haha!

And finally, here is an illustrated article for the absolute neophyte on exactly how to pick up the offending dog poop, step by step. Where was this when I needed it? 😉

Now there you go!

Happy Doo-Doo Day! 😉

      I never look where I am going. I always expect all pathways to be clear. As if I am royalty or something 😉 Always getting surprised.

    Have you seen this YouTube video of a dog using — and flushing — the toilet? 🙂
