Winter decision making assistance

pick up dog poop flow chart

Here it is in large format.

A bit of recycling this morning, at the request of Jennifer:

I think @alloveralbany needs to post the Pick Up The Poop flowchart again. People, seriously, BE RESPONSIBLE & pick up after your dogs.

It's obviously a difficult question for some people, so this should help.

What I don't understand is that winter is, hands down, the easiest time of year to pick up after your dog but I feel like I see more poop out there than ever right now. If I have an extra bag I will pick up after someone else hoping that it will balance out my karma when this rare, but possible equation has occurred in my own life:

2 dogs + 2 bags = 3 Poops

Can AOA do a similar chart for drinking and drug use while driving? It might look something like this:

You've been drinking.
You're thinking of driving.
What now?

>>>>Don't drive.

YESSSS!!
I need a PDF of this so i can print it out and tape it to my apartment building. Apparently my neighbor does not believe little dog's poop can be seen or stepped in on the walkway.

woo-hoo! thanks greg! passive aggressive neighborhood signs ftw :)

I think all of us dog owners, from time to time, have found ourselves without a bag or a good solution (Valerae's situation above being something that just sometimes happens, best laid plans or no). It happens. I get that. But the amount of dog poop on part of Washington Park near State/Willett St. right now is downright unacceptable. It's the worst I've ever seen it. Not only does it make the rest of us look bad (those of us who, for the most part, pick up after our dogs), but for those of us who have dogs that think Poopsicles are a delicacy, it is just ONE MORE THING we have to police when out on our walks ... (ugh ... gross, I know, but I also know I'm not alone here).

Thanks, AOA, for being my soapbox today. :)

now if only there was a way to get the cats to stop pooping all over the place...like in my landscaping. the cat stench in the summer is horrible and nothing i have tried has worked.

Perhaps this chart could go up in the Ten Broeck Triangle amongst the new Permit Parking signs and "Ban the Brewery" signs. (sigh)

*With an added piece of info: small dog poop is still poop! Pick it up!

They should turn Maiden Lane into a stepped pedestrian street, like they have all over Europe. We don't need to reinvent the wheel, they do steep small streets pretty well across the pond, let's look for some precedents... Human scaled lighting is critical too, that goes for the whole city. And we don't need paint on the road, just signage perpendicular to the flow of traffic at the bridge entrance. I also echo the call for basic, ongoing maintenance to our current infrastructure. How about some weed removal in sidewalks, etc?
