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!

I grew up on a farm and had to pick vegetables and various types of fruits ever since I was seven years old. When my city or suburban-bred friends ask me to go apple picking as if it were a form of entertainment, I feel like laughing in their faces.
