    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.

    Fancy spending your life trailing after some animal whose **** you pick up .

    I must fund some research to see if people with left wing views are more prone to this behaviour defect .

    Families who own dogs are more likely to vote Conservative than those which don't. Known fact, that. The Krays, for example. Reggie Maudling. William Whitelaw. Tiny Rowland and his ridgebacks. Bloody Nabarro when he wasn't fondling the domestic staff.

    As for picking up their insanitary dog's droppings it's not just a good idea - it's the law.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.
    From the upper tier of the Leppings Lane End of the Hillsborough Stadium, I watched the events of that day unfold with horror.

    It's an even better idea not to get yourself into the demeaning position of picking up sheet in the first place .

    What' s your leisure time job , John ?
    I am a sheet shoveller .
    Great job . It stinks and I stink . But I don't care
    Duh .

    No no, we progressed into Thatcher's Britain some while ago, everyone has to have a job, remember? If you're fit for nothing else you can collect pure in buckets from the streets, two pence at the depot per bucket delivered.

    Throw your mind back to Mayhew's London Labour And The London Poor for the prototype employment scheme the government is building on. Zero hour contracts, guaranteed minimum wage and no benefits for those who refuse to get out of bed and put their gloves on when the SMS shift assignment arrives on their phone.

    Valuable stuff, pure, so long as you can get it cheap enough. It's an essential ingredient, along with goatskin, for making ladies' evening gloves.




    OED: 1851 H. Mayhew London Labour II. 142/1 Dogs'-dung is called ‘Pure’, from its cleansing and purifying properties.

    That was only because the smelly dogs ended up as drunk and gin smelling as their

    owners in Victorian Times .

    My pre -Raphaelite forbears detested H. Mayhew and often delighted in making him pure

    as he left his house each morning .

    By the tea cup full-- wearing gloves and with little finger extended, rigidly pointing due north ---- because they were most genteel and creative .
    Quite unlike those anti semite Communists who hide behind the skirts of Jeremiah Corblimey these days .
