Is there anything worse than walking along a public city sidewalk and stepping in doggy doo or slipping on puppy pee? Why are so many dog owners irresponsible in taking care of their pets?
Why do these awful dog owners they believe their dog’s excrement and urine belong on our sidewalks and not in their garbage can?
The simple answer is, those owners are lazy.
The more complicated answer is they’re self-centered and socially disconnected.
Oh, how great it would be to pick up the steaming pile of poop they purposefully left behind and hand it all back to the offending owner. You know they’d pull a royal fit for having to actually deal with the crap they force on the rest of us.
Janna and I love to take walks in the neighborhood. We get fit and we feel good hanging out together and we cover a lot of ground in a short amount of time.
When the Winter comes, though, the walks become harder. The wind bites. The snow falls. The temperatures plummet. And dog poop pocks the sidewalks and dog urine decorates every mound of snow and corner. Ten days after a snowfall, the snow piles are all discolored yellow with dog pee. It is truly disgusting, and an absolute warning to always be careful where you place your foot in the Spring, Summer and Fall when you can’t easily witness the demon pee.
One thing we’ve noticed on our walks is that there are two forms of lazy people: Those who refuse to shovel their sidewalks — usually buildings full of renters and not home owners — and those who mark their lazy territory directly outside their homes with their dog excretions.
You see, dog owners, it seems, don’t like to walk their dogs during the bitter Wintertime and they instead just open the door, let the dog go outside and poop on the sidewalk and pee on the snow directly in front of their homes. Those special “dog markings” then serve as a warning sign to the rest of us that disgusting people live in that house and they don’t curb their dog and that they love the color of urine, and the smell of shat decorating the snow and trees.
So… Beware! as you walk along the hardened streets of the urban core, because you must always be on your toes — when you see piles of dog poop and rivulets of dog urine licking the landscape of a house — and know those people are slovenly slobs who deserve to have their pet’s poop hand-delivered back into their homes instead of you unwittingly tracking it all back home into yours.
