How do I handle this delicate situation when I am in a public lake and Storm decides to take a big dump in the lake I always have poop bags because Storm seems to love to poop the minute we get on any Main Street, but, the lake?????? Thankfully this time I think we escaped notice of the offending poop as it drifted off....but has anybody encountered this situation or is my dog the only one guilty of this rather odd predicimint.

I'm told if you stick the tip of the end of a paper match (the part that doesn't light) into the dog's butt, they'll poop within a few minutes. If you don't go to the lake very often, this might be the route to go to ensure that the dog doesn't decide to produce a floater. The guy who told me about this method used to criss-cross the country with his dog on airplaines, so he needed to use it a lot. Eventually the dog just started pooping on command

Dogs can be taught to poop on command without putting anything up their butts.

Yes, I realize that. But the OP has an immediate problem. This isn't something that's going to hurt the dog - they get thermometers up their butts every time they go to the vet.

It's actually the sulfer end (the part that does light)......

Does this happen often? Your initial post seemed like it was a first occurrence.

This was the first time and I'm hoping the only time I'm just concerned that he might think that was such an amazing idea or something We go to our favorite lake and there are frequently swimmers and kayakers around so lake pooping would just be very very bad

It's unlikely he'll make a habit out of it. Without sticking anything up his butt, just make sure he poops prior to taking him to the lake. He won't poop in it if he is "empty." The alternative is to buy yourself some fishing waders so you can go get the poop.

Since we're talking poop, was it a floater?!?!
