I have been a dog owner for a long time, and have prided myself on being an anal-retentive poo picker upper. But I must say, that nothing drives me more insane than stupid dog owners who do not pick up after their dog. It ruins it for everyone else. The one time I forgot my baggy, I ran home to get one, but along the way I got yelled at about not picking up after my dog. Therefore, I can understand that sometimes situations may arise where we have forgotten a bag, or there is a poo emergency - but other than that - there’s no excuse. I have used newspaper, old Sobeys bag flying in the wind or anything else I could possibly find, to make sure that my dog's poo is picked up, so that side walks and yards are kept clean.
On another note: I walking through a little grassy area (the water tower) on Robie Street, near Lady Hammond and I stumbled upon a graveyard of poo bags left behind some lazy and stupid dog owner. Instead of putting the baggies in the garbage can across the street, they decided to hide them in a little area underneath a bush. Seriously, there were at least 30 bags - it was absolutely disgusting.
Any way, if your not mature/responsible enough to pick up after your dog, then your obviously not mature enough to own a dog!
