I know I just wrote (too much) about picking up dog poop, but something else came up that I felt like I needed to add.
My girlfriend got me a thing that you put on the end of the leash for poop bags. Like a toilet paper dispenser, but for picking up dog crap.
Anyway, the bags it came with are thin. Like, really thin. So thin that I imagine it would float away if you let one go on a completely windless day.
Being so thin, when picking up fresh dog crap, I can totally feel the temperature and texture of the specimen more than I could with my old bags, as if the bag is not even there.
And this is not something I want to deal with when trying to enjoy a nice walk in some fresh air. I totally wasn’t expecting it the first time I went to clear up after my dog so I let out an audible groan which I’m sure would have looked/sounded bizarre to the people around me…
So, I need to either find better bags that don’t make me want to heave every time I go to clear up after my dog or just put up with it.
I know a dog poo bin in garden is the economical way to get rid of it but I can hardly take it with me when I go for walks! I’m definitely looking into getting one for my garden but I’m still not sure how to deal with my latest issue.
Also, I’m not sure whether to tell my girlfriend because she got me the bags as a thoughtful gift but I’m sure she’ll be able to find the gross funny side if I do tell her. I wish she had got me some thicker, earth friendly poop bags instead!
Just thought I’d share that with you guys.
Oh, and yes. Yes, that is the way I just announced that I got a girlfriend.
