The theme of my winter in Boise appears to be dog poop. This showed up in my Nextdoor feed today:
I wonder if many people in Boise just don’t pick up their dogs’ poop. I pick up after mine, but I did notice, while enjoying the leash-free access to many parks this winter, that many folks decided to enjoy theirs by ignoring the fact that their dogs pooped during their visit.
And the previous owners of my new house apparently didn’t pick up after their dogs all winter, either. Admittedly, it snowed a lot this winter, and a certain number of piles are bound to have been missed no matter how diligent a person might be.
But I did keep a record on Facebook of my experience of getting the new house move-in ready:
But maybe I’m being too hard on my fellow dog owners. It looks like a bunch of them have come to the same conclusion I did, which is: It’s time to get that poop picked up.
