    Better pick it up

    The new trend in communities:
    Colorado dog owners fined hundreds after not picking up pet poop - The Denver Post

    I remember listening to a discussion on this a few years back on Public Radio, in Detroit. It has now arrived.

    BROOMFIELD — You take your dog out and pick up the mess it leaves behind, right?

    If the answer is no - watch out. Several communities along the Front Range are now using sophisticated testing to police the non-scoopers.

    Michael Liddle lives at the Retreat at the Flatirons in Broomfield and was recently fined $100 not once, but twice for apparently not scooping well enough.

    "She's a Teacup Chihuahua and she's a runt," he said. "Her droppings are no larger than what geese leave behind."

    Liddle says he's diligent about poop-scooping.

    "But the grass is really tall," he said. "And especially at nighttime. It'll fall down in between the grass and you can't see it."

    I've got two dogs and dog **** annoys me as much as the next personn especially on a footpath. Most dogs will go in to the bushes to crap if it's on a path odds are someone has stood there and watched while it does it. If you can't pick it up don't get a dog buy a hamster. I don't let them crap or pee in the neighbours gardens either and if my dogs catch the cat that does it in mine I will quietly dispose of the body.

    Re: Better pick it up

    I have mixed feelings on this.

    Ok, pick it up, got that.

    Does my neighbor really want me to dig a hole to get rid of every piece and stain?

    I would love living in a place like that so to go around depositing my own poo and urine.

    Pitstop is getting old, and she seems to like to drop on the walkway, rather than in the grass, anymore. making it much easier for me to retrieve.

    I have mine trained to go in to the bushes to crap.

    We had an acquaintance who had trained her dog to, not pee on command, but to go up to someone and lift their leg as if they were about to pee on their leg. Apart from an impressive level of skill in training you kind of wonder at the mentality of someone who spends time doing something like that.
