just because your tiny dog's poop is tiny doesn't mean you don't need to pick it up.

When tiny poop gets tracked into my house it stinks just as much.

Ugh, or anyone who doesn't pick up after their dog PERIOD.

No one in our neighborhood save for us and a few neighbors picks up after their dogs and just leaves it on the sidewalk. One guy repeatedly let his dog poop in our front yard and walked away without picking it up until my boyfriend publicly embarrassed him in front of the whole neighborhood this past Saturday after repeatedly attempts in private to get him to stop. I think he had had enough at that point!

Yesterday at the bus stop there was a pile RIGHT IN FRONT OF THE BUS STOP that had been stepped in and tracked all over the place. It was nearly impossible to avoid getting poo on your shoe at that point.

What on earth are people thinking?

To owners of tiny dogs: It is not funny when your tiny dog growls, snarls and snaps at people or other dogs. Just because I could punt it across the street does not excuse its bad behavior.

That isn't a tiny dog problem, that is an ignorant POS neighbor problem. I have two Shih Tzus and a Japanese Chin that are smaller dogs and I always poop scoop but guess what??? My neighbors don't! Numerous times there are humungous piles of doogie doo in my front yard, on my SIDEWALK (that their own children walk on) and on the walking paths. I hate my neighborhood and their lack of respect for the community.

Really? Sounds unfair.

You know what's really truly unfair and barbaric? In West Virginia they allow people to tether their dogs to a chain for their entire life.

Dogs Deserve Better Home Page: No Chained Dogs!

This webite has some great tips on how to get the laws changed.

I think it goes for small and large dogs alike; perhaps smaller dog owners are less likely to pick it up?

I recently adopted a puppy in November and I feel like I notice now more than ever the culprits that don't pick up. I live in NYC so 99% of our walks are on sidewalk, and as I walk more with the dog to those streets that have some patches of non-sidewalk area, I notice it. I think it's particular bad in the winter/pre-spring. It seems a lot of people don't pick it up when it's on a pile of snow, or they bury it in snow. Well... guess what happens when the snow melts??? Ugh, disgusting.

Exactly. The owners are the core of the problem. The dogs merely mimic their owners.
