Not all towns have them. I've seen one dog station in my town in the entire time I've lived here. There's not even one at the pet groomer's!The only time I leave poo is if it's too runny to pick up. But other then that I completely agree! Especially when there are SO MANY little poop bag stations and trash cans everywhere. MAYBE I could understand if you were a long way from home and forgot a bag, but there are so many conveniently placed bag stations available to use for free!!
I think you may have had the bad day this time, because nobody was being "crabby" or insulting you. "Preaching to the choir" = We all completely understand the poop thing and where you're coming from, and when I said it, I even put a smiley face at the end of my post to make sure nobody took it as me being mean, insulting or crabby.Is it just me, or is there ALOT of crabby people these days that have nothing better to do but insult, or treat people bad because they've had a bad day.
I actually had a guy on my street ask me to let my dog poop in his yard, free fertilizer he said...that is my biggest thing too, i hate it when i see people do it, so, i confront them!! and they hate it, but, i put it back in their face and say " do YOU like it when dogs do that on your lawn????"
my son is always making sure we have plastic bags to take with us, and even when we go to the vet, he will clean it up.
yes - preaching to the choir isn't an insult (as in just preaching to someone) but a saying just meaning that everyone is agreeing with you.I think you may have had the bad day this time, because nobody was being "crabby" or insulting you.

Tone of voice cannot always be assumed over the internet.
I've actually done this when I go on a long walk near my neighborhood. It always gets picked up on the way back, I just really don't want to carry it all that way. I think that is other people's ideas but I think sometimes they forget (I've done that once and when I saw it again I picked it up to throw it away. I've also picked up bags that other people left int he park that I have no idea if they had forgotten or were going to come back for).Poo bags are stuffed in every pocket of every coat I own, so that even if I forget to take any when I go out the door they will be there already.
What blows my mind, is that on the greenbelt trail we walk on regularly, you will sometimes see a bag of poop laid by the side of the path... in other words, someone bothered to bag it, only to leave it lying on the ground as litter afterwards anyway! >=(
Must be urban, I live a nice suburban neighborhood with nice lawns all round..I guess maybe I did have a bad day lol....sorry for that. I thought that when you said about the preaching to choir that it meant that I was whinning? Now I know differently. I did have a bad day as the poop thing around here happens ALOT, and it gets to me when I have to say something everyday. I understand when it's runny, or you happen to forget a bag, or something but other then that it's NOT sanitary. Let's just say i've stepped on too many poop piles in my time since i've lived here lol. I appologize for being crabby i guess, lol.
