I walk my dog a lot and in my neighborhood, people expect you to pick up after your dogs. Aside from the mild grossness, this isn’t so bad. I was walking Holly sometime after dark when she decided it was time to do her business, right in someone’s yard of course!
This isn’t unusual or anything, considering my neighborhood pretty much consists of yards and houses back to back, smooshed together. But what is unusual is when the people who own the yard actually decide to pull up in the driveway, while your dog is squatting next to their mailbox!!
It was a little awkward to say the least. They were very nice, and said hi to me, and I explained to them I was going to pick up after Holly, and they were very appreciative. Well, she finally finished, and I bent pick up after her, but the poop was nowhere to be found.
So I then proceeded to walk around their yard using the light of my cell phone to try and find it. The woman even got back in her car and turned on the headlights to help me look. This went on for several minutes, me bent over in these people’s yard, poop bag, cell phone, and dog in hand, Holly sitting there impatiently, and the nice woman, trying to help me find the pile.
Well, eventually I found it. But only after I stepped in it. With my favorite shoes on, of course!!
I stood up, told her that I got it (she didn’t notice just HOW I actually found it) and tried to pick up whatever leftovers that weren’t stuck on the bottom of my shoe. I walked all the way home dragging my foot, to try and scrape the remnants off of the bottom of my shoe!!
This was definitely one of the more awkward moments of my life! However, I still love Holly more than anything!
Thank you for reading & Have a shoephrodisiac evening!
