My letter to dog owners in our neighborhood:
Dear Fellow Dog Lovers,
Isn't this weather amazing? If you're like me, you love getting out in the sunshine with your fluffy, furry baby. Hayden & I love taking walks together in the neighborhood. The streets are tree lined & the homes are great to stare into...I mean look at as we walk by. I'm sure you probably enjoy the same thing.
Like today. Hayden & I were on our 20 minute lunch walk when all of a sudden, she did a quick side-step. Yes, to avoid the poop on the sidewalk that you didn't pick up! I know how hard it can be (well, I'll never understand letting your dog poo on a sidewalk, but I digress). You're out for a walk, the dog starts sniffing & you realize to your horror that you don't have a poo bag.
*hint* we carry extra just in case!
I've been exactly where you're at too. I've used my last one on a walk & had either Hayden or Maddy (when she was still with us) leave a special present in someone's yard. The thing is, I would actually go back & pick it up!
Side note: Maddy was a 156lb Great Dane - I couldn't leave that out there!
So if you're wondering what to do with those Harris Teeter grocery bags you may be collecting, please put them to use after your pooch!
Now, you may not be a poo offender, but I do have a favor. If you have a male dog, could you please try to not let him mark everywhere? I know that boys often do that, but with a gentle pull of the leash & a "Come Fido" command, I'm sure you could cut him off - no pun intended. It's really hard to take Hayden for a walk when every 2 feet she plants, jerks to a complete halt & sniffs the post/fence/light pole/shrub/flower/curb, etc.
Thanks so much for your help!
If you need a bag & see me out with the Yellow Lab, Hayden, just ask me for one. I always have extras!
