cleaning up the shit

Across the street, a medium-sized tan dog on a leash stopped to take a shit in my neighbor's yard.

The dog's owner, bundled against the morning chill, waited patiently, then inserted his right hand into a blue plastic bag, reached down, gathered the turds, turned the bag inside out so that what had been gathered was now contained, and moved along with his companion, tying off the blue bag as they walked.

It was a conscientious maneuver carefully executed.

I wonder how many are as conscientious and careful and caring about their own shit.

  1. I've been performing that maneuver almost daily for years while walking the dog, often twice per walk. I must use up all my willpower there...
