Default Picking up after the dogs

Why do people look at me like I'm nasty and gross for picking after my dogs? I can let them step in it if they would like. lol

You are supposed to use a bag.

Other than that...?

I think it was a joke

I've gotten those looks and I feel a bit gross doing it, especially when it's "excitement poop" (see excitement poop thread). I can understand why they are disgusted if their lives have not required them to hold large fresh feces in their hands (even with a bag, you feel the warmth and the consistency and I swear the smell goes through the plastic sometimes).

But yeah. I wish they wouldn't stare obnoxiously. It's the only thing to be done if you own a dog, which is normal, so they should respect that and not make things uncomfortable for us, the poor people carrying the poop

Lol exactly what Xandra said. They look because it's gross, and very likely their lives have no included picking up animal feces.

It's annoying when people look.
Yes I know it's gross.. but you are not making it any less gross by gawking.

The alternative is me leaving the poop there.. which we all know is rule #1 in the "Don't be a douchebag" handbook.

Honestly, I give people weird looks (and general scowls) if they DON'T pick up after their dogs.

I use the passive aggressive kindness technique

I'm bad, I don't pick up after my dogs. I really should start doing that, one day. The random days I have had something on me and picked it up, people don't seem to pay attention.

You have to here or you can be fined.

Granted its only policed in a few places. But the sentiment it there. It's becoming quite unsociable to allow your dog to foul the streets and parks. Thank god.

This being said, I pick up poo in public places, I'm less inclined to pick it up from behind bushes, up steep embankments, off the beaten track etc.
