Corralitas Drive: If It Comes Out Of Your Dog's Butt, Pick It Up

Photo: Diane Edwardson, October 20, 2014.  Of course, the plastic bag ban does make it harder to on those of us who reused those bags, but come on, buy some damn poop bags and pick it up!  (Click on photo to enlarge.)

It's not just Corralitas Drive, it's happening throughout the neighborhood, the Red Car Property, parks, the river.  I wonder if there's been a marked increase since the plastic bag ban?  At least one neighbor, who always picks up after her dog, complains the pet store she frequents always seems to be out of poop bags (you'd think by now, they'd order more).   One ban-the-bag lobbyist told me use bread bags, used sandwich bags - clearly he doesn't have a dog.  They poop more than once a day & I don't eat more than a loaf a bread in a week.  Most of us stockpiled bags for a year before the ban and we sometimes run out of bags while walking, and have to dig through a nearby recycle bin for a bag or newspaper to pick it up.  

However, there is a serious increase in the amount of poop on the sidewalks lately.  Pick it up!
