Dog Poop Addendum

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.

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.

While she was crying downstairs, I was crying upstairs as I took inventory of all of the tiny bloodstains that she made on my new carpet every time she sat down and used her bottom like a little rubber stamp. This was a problem that needed to be solved sooner rather than later.

So I put her in the crate that we bought for her, and made the journey to Petco.

That is where I found Simple Solution Diapers. They were doggie diapers for females in heat or for puppies with incontinence or excitable urination. And they even boasted “tail-wagging comfort!

My New Dog (Day 1)

You might remember that a few weeks ago, I bought a houseplant.

If you don’t maybe this will remind you:

I-bought-a-plant-poster

Well I am sorry to tell you that three days after I bought Watson, I returned him.

Now, Watson was a great plant. And we had some really great times together during those three days. He didn’t do anything wrong.

But he had to go.

You see, I did a little research and learned that Watson, a Dracaena, was actually toxic to dogs.
