I wish I could insert the popular "shaking my head" emoji to describe my frustration on this subject. Just picture me doing it, okay?

Since spring is right around the corner and we're all going to be out gallivanting with our pets, we need to have a little chat.

First off, let me assure you that I am not an official poo officer, just a concerned Mainer who doesn't enjoy watching you let your pup pop a squat, release their duty, and then walk on by without picking it up.

Walking your dog is amazing, but not taking care of the aftermath? Dumb.

Let's get into it. I was sitting on my porch yesterday, enjoying the fact that my porch is finally finished and looking fine as hell, taking a sigh of relief after a long day at work,  inhaling all the good feels of nature, AND THEN... poop bomb.

I see a person walking their dog, and the dog takes his position, does the royal squat, and releases his steamy peanut butter jar all over the sidewalk.

This wasn't a little poop, either. It was a do-do castle.

This also wasn't a neighbor of mine. They know better.

As I sat there having a riveting conversation with my cat, Charlie Benedict Cumberbatch, we both noticed the owner bend down to pet the dog, and then walked on.

He completely disregarded the steaming pile of dog crap on the road!

I'm pretty sure that dog's massive landmine was not part of my neighbor's garden.

I don't take pleasure in pointing this out, but I don't want anyone walking down the road to have to play a not-so-fun game of  "Avoid the Poo".

Even though my duck and dodging skills are wicked impressive, it's all unnecessary.

Dear Owner,

Were you thinking that no one would notice, bub?

It takes two seconds to grab the blue plastic bag that I saw hanging from your pocket. Take it out, flip it inside out, and grab and dispose of that poo, properly.



If you are a pet owner and don't pick up after your dog relieves themselves, shame, shame, shame.
