Dog Turds

They're out there somewhere.

  1. My dog is one of the bad puppies who want to go out and find them to get a snack. She's nearly blind due to genetic cataracts, but I honestly think she remembers where they are if I don't shovel them up.

  6. When i see owners walking behind their dogs and scooping up the poop, I always wonder what aliens from space would think observing this. They'd undoubtedly think the big two-legged creatures had been tamed by dog overlords and trained to pick up the poop.

    2. But, as God as my witness, I will NEVER WIPE!
      The dog. I'll always wipe myself.
      That probably goes without saying, though.

  7. True story: We had a dog that thought the dreaded turds were treats. It was her only vice. Hubzam complained and said, "can't we put something on them that makes them taste bad?".

    I replied: "They're turds, man...if they don't taste like crap, what do you suggest?"

    1. Which makes them super easy to pick up. That's the kind of yard cleanup I can get behind.

  10. Almost stumbled into one of our dog's little "presents" yesterday when I was checking on some trees we planted in the backyard. We don't even have autumn here. SIDE NOTE: Our lawn needs mowing.

    1. True.

  14. That's why dogs are inferior to cats, who bury their poop. But if you're going to rake up the poop, I'll throw the doggie a stick!

    1. Plus, dogs eat their poop.
      AND the cat's.
      So....

  15. I had so many witty comments, but I fear they have all been taken. Except the Hidden Valley Ranch thing... I have no words for that.
