Last week I was walking my dog and pushing my two kids(who weigh at least 65 lbs. combined) in the double stroller up a hill. This is no easy feat. Maximus had to go so I set the stroller's brake and waited with doggie bag on hand ready to scoop up the mess. I was picking up the dog's poop. when an angry old man came out of his house to yell at me "I'd appreciate if you don't do that again on my lawn."
"Um, ok" is what I said. What I should have said was "Ok I won't pick it (the poop) up." Can you imagine the steam coming out of his ears.
Am I out of touch? I just don't understand why people care if a dog poops on the lawn as long as the owner picks it up. What do you think? Was I wrong to let him poop on the lawn even if I always pick up after him? I'd love to hear from you all especially non-dog owners.
