Scoop That Poop: Because Not Everything Thinks It's Yucky

Today is the Scoop That Poop blog hop, the hop that reminds everyone that there are excellent reasons not to leave dog waste lying around.

If anyone needs extra motivation, here's some. Flies like dog poop, and they taste with their feet. They taste dog poop, your hamburger, dog poop, the edge of your glass, more dog poop, your kid's popsicle…

Flies aren't just looking for food. They are also looking for suitable places to lay eggs, which will hatch into…well, you know.

We saw dog waste left by the sidewalk on our walk today. Ugh. And it's a problem in the city parks, virtually all of which have picnic areas (although frankly since our city provides open trash cans in its parks, the flies have plenty of food anyway).

There really is no excuse. What is just disgusting in the winter is a local health hazard in the summer. Hop over to Sugar (our host) and enter the giveaway for a Fifth Paw to make scooping your dog's poop a bit less yucky!


  1. Sad, but true. There is no excuse and yet people constantly find a reason to pretend it wasn't their dog.

  2. Ugh...YUCK is right! People forget about those pesky flies and where their feet have been, like on dog poop! Great Scoop That Poop post!

  3. We agree with Bailey there is no excuse but some people just can't be bothered. Have a marvellous Monday.
    Best wishes Molly

  4. This is a great, and really gross, reminder! lol... Definitely something I had not thought of yet. Thanks for joining the hop and spreading the word!

  5. YUK to flies and this year they are everywhere. Invasion of flies on dog poop is yucky!!! so it is important to #ScoopThatPoop. Golden Thanks for joining our hop. Golden Woofs

  6. Great points Amy! I scoop the poop from our backyard each and everyday but I inevitably miss some and the flies come... gross. If I keep the yard clean, though, there are no flies and the whole garden is more pleasant.

  7. This post should be seen by everyone that doesn't think it matters if they pick up poop in their own yard! Yucko!!

  8. It's just laziness on the part of dog owners, wish people were more conscientious

  9. flies are gross! we have a fly problem this year even with scooping im thinking of investing in osmesort of bug light or something

    Your pal Snoopy :)
