Ei! pick up that poop!

I had a strange thing occur on Monday.

So I’m out running one of my client’s dogs. This is in a peaceful, well-established community on a golf program with huge trees as well as nice homes.

This dog as well as I (she’s a small, shepherd mix) tend to see a few of the exact same people out as well as about each time. everybody is generally laid back as well as respectful.

So, there’s this lady with a bit Bichon dog who we see perhaps when a week. I’ve never believed anything however positive thoughts about them. The lady always uses a adorable sundress as well as sun hat. Her dog never barks.

So this day, we occurred to pass her three times as we made kind of a figure-8 with the neighborhood.

I generally move to the other side of the street when we pass other dogs, just to enable some space. On this day, I saw her looking over her shoulder at us, as well as I thought, that’s truly nice of her to be conscious of where we are. Because, you know, let’s deal with it, most people are not extremely aware.

So we continue on our method as well as make one more loop. By this time around I’m bring a bag of poop, as I usually am by this point (so predictable).

And then we pass the lady again, as well as as I prepare to move across the street, she goes, “Mam, reason me? Mam?”

And I think, oh, she’s going to begin some chit-chat, as dog people tend to do. I figure she’s going to tell me exactly how nice my dog is.

Only she goes, “You requirement to begin choosing up after him.”


“Yeah, I saw you. You requirement to pick up after him.”

And I go, “Oh, I always do. Concordo! people should always pick up after their dogs.” (I’m actually holding the poop.)

And she just goes, “Yeah. pick up after him,” as well as keeps walking.


So I keep running, as well as I’m not truly mad, however shocked. Like, exactly how random is that? If only she understood I’ve been a expert dog walker as well as blog writer for the last six years as well as I actually pick up after my dog as well as my clients’ dogs Every. Solteiro. Tempo.

Sometimes (usually?) I’m running with two or three utilized bags in my hand wanting there were more trash bins.

Sigh … what can you do?

I suppose she must’ve had me mixed up with somebody else. however no, the more I believed about it, I realized when she was looking over her shoulder she saw my dog squatting as well as peeing, as well as just presumed “he” – who is truly a she – was, um, pooping.

This dog is a skinny, leggy dog, so when she squats, she does look quite awkward. however what can I tell ya? She was peeing.

Sigh once again …

There’s not truly much of a point to this story, I guess. I just believed it was so weird as well as random, as well as I believed perhaps a few of you may have similar stories.

There was one more time when I was running with a male dog, as well as the dog squatted as well as peed in the grass, as well as this guy across the street hollers, “Hey! Aren’t you gonna pick that up?”

I just kept running that time.

Because, what can you do?

First world problems, I guess.
