Top Three Things I Hate About PIcking Up Dog Poop Today

Top Three Things I Hate About Picking Up Dog Poop Today:
1) Not realizing until the steaming hot poop touched my hand that there was a hole in the *#*^$! bottom of the poop bag.
2) As I was leaning over taking care of said business, dropping one of my ear buds on top of the poop in the poop bag (again...)
3) Double bagging it and still being able to smell the poop...
but...I guess since it was all over my palm and now in my ear...the lingering smell was inevitable.

I did have a great workout today, though. The gym is officially closed for the next two weeks, so it's me and Tony Horton. I did P90X Back and Chest and AbRipper. I'll call it AbLoungingAround, though...as I'm still working up to his Rippidness.

This is funny. I sooo don't want a dog for this reason! I hate dog poop!

LOL - I hate it that stuff smells SO bad that it permeates the double bag. yuck. HOpe your day was less crappy after that. yes, pun intended.

I've got my system down to a fine art, but I'm betting Husky poo isn't as big or as bad as Lab poo!

I am so resisting the urge to comment on this, but I must because the picture of this dog just makes me laugh and cringe at the same time. Don't you think the "PooTrap" just seems so....I don't know.... emasculating? *giggles*

@ Amanda - but dogs are SO awesome!!

@ Megan - Yes, the day was much less crappy after I cleaned up :-)

@Liz - her poops are lovely compared to others I've seen!

@Lori - it's ridiculous! Poor pooch.

I think I feel a gag reflex coming on LOL! The other day in the gas station, someone in line ahead of me must have had dog poop on their shoes, and it took ALL I had not to run out of there!! If I had a dog I would have to make the kids clean it up :)

What a funny post and EWWWW all at the same time! I make my dogs carry their own poop now! I tie the bag half way between me and the bowser...I can still smell it, but I tell myself that the stench is much less this way!

I'm planning on making out with...er, I mean working out with Tony in the morning if I can get out of bed. Can you say DOMS??? It's those flippin' dive bomber push ups...the sneak up on ya!!!

Julie said...

H- I totally feel those pushups from yesterday! I just finished my plyo workout a little bit ago. I can't remember what tomorrow is...Just hoping it's not yoga.

haha!! I just had to pick up dog poop in the SNOW today. That is the worst!! Melting steamers. I also hate having to carry a steamer on a run if I can't find a garbage can!

It's a good thing they're so cute!!

Julie said...

Jen - I'm hoping for snow...so I'm going to go scoop poop out of the backyard right now. I think it's been over a month since I've been out there... ick!!!!
Nothing worse than finding a bunch of poop logs mixed in with your snowman!
