The Scoop on Poop: Do you dump and run?
That’s the headline that was being discussed on my local radio station yesterday morning as I was getting ready for work. The story is that Bob Furnad, a former CNN political director and CNN Headline News president, “was busted by a local CBS affiliate in Atlanta placing dog poop in his neighbor’s mailbox.”
Yuck! Who does that?
Well, I guess he does!
It was the topic that followed the one on this story that caught my attention though.
Yes. It was another dog poop-related discussion.
The question? When out on a walk with your dog, do you drop your poop bag in your neighbor’s garbage can (if it is sitting out)?
I have always been of the belief that no neighbor of mine would appreciate me leaving my dog’s poop in their garbage, whether it is convenient for me or not, but that’s just my opinion. I’ve never really asked them before. Who knows? Maybe my neighbors don’t really care one way or the other.
The radio host, Ian Punnett, asked non-dog owners to call in if they felt it was wrong for dog owners to dump their poop in their trash bin. Not one did. You know who did? Dog owners, every one of them loaded up with guilt, or at least the thought of the guilt they would feel, if they did dump their dog poop in a neighbors bin. So it made me wonder…
Have you ever dumped your dog’s poop bag in a neighbor’s trash bin if it is out when you walk by?
If you are a dog owner, would you mind if someone dumped their dog’s poop bag in your trash bin?
And, you non-dog owners (if there are any non-dog owners actually read this blog), would you care if someone dumped their poop bag in your trash?
