I wish people would pay attention to this sign!


It seems EVERY TIME I run, which is basically every day, I see the remnants of a careless dog owner's apathy or the actual deed in the making. It is amazing to me how many people use the PUBLIC trail system in my area and don't see the FREE pick up bags for THEIR dogs!

I mean, come on, do you really think it is going to EVAPORATE or more likely you think someone else should take care of it because YOU ARE ENTITLED!

I carry a bag with me for my dog so no HYPOCRITE here.

Today was the THIRD TIME just this spring that I had to spray off the bottom of my running shoes because of dog owners who don't care to share... THE PATH...

Okay, I vented...

I agree with you Justin.. it's just rude! :-) and stepping in it is the worst!

I carry a little bag and latex glove when I'm out with her but she usually waits until we are home and then goes on the floor :0

that is the funniest sign I have ever seen. I think if I came across one of those here in Iowa, I might need a bag for myself! LOL :X

I thought the sign was funny too. I want to get about a hundred of them and plant them along my running path every 100 feet, er I mean about ten thousand of them... heh heh

Bonnie the glove and bag is a funny visual, though I don't blame you I run for miles with my hand stretched out after Batman aka Toots does her business...

By the way invest in bottle of acidopholus pills to keep in the fridge whenever your IG has the tummy rumbles and trust me she will. It works like a dream. My wife has a degree in natureopathy and we use it when we have any stomach probs but it is amazing for an IG, within hours they are hungry again and not er puking and running outside every few minutes...

Thanks Justin, that's good to know. She does seem to have a lot of um...... gas. The boys of course think it's hilarious.
