It’s a Mystery

Jake chews a treat after a walk.

Out neighborhood has many dog lovers, most of whom are responsible. The problem is with the lax ones.

A few days ago I was putting a flowerbed to rest for the winter. I knew I had to patrol the yard first. Five piles of unknown poop were there. The suspects: two elderly shelties, a lab and a yorkadoodle who all live in my end of the cul-de-sac.

Jake, Hope and Windy are not to poop in the front yard. It is not fenced. If one should have to do it while on a walk, it gets picked up. And I know my dogs’ poop.

If you live with dogs for a while, you can tell whose poop is whose. This may sound bizarre, but that is good because if one is sick you can see the evidence.

I am debating putting a “No pooping” sign in the front yard. I have seen then in stores and online. Should I?



About daysofourdogs

I have owned dogs nearly all my life. Many different breeds, mutts, rescues, and foundlings have found their ways into my heart. I have two dachshunds and a miniature schnauzer now. I hate puppy mills and want them wiped from the face of the earth.
