Yes, it’s exactly what it looks like. A bag of dog shit on the sidewalk. These little treasures are left frequently in the neighborhood where JJ, Benny and I take our walks. Usually, we see them on the grass parking strips in front of houses or in the gutter. But this one landed on the sidewalk. I can’t help but wonder how. Why would you bother to clean up after your dog only to leave the bag behind?
You just cleaned up after Horace and tied off the bag. Suddenly, the little white fluffy mutt charges across the street at you and Horace. Fluffy gets in Horace’s face and to stop a dog fight, you drop the bag and scurry away with Horace in tow. Horace wants to show that yappy Fluffy a thing or two but you don’t. Fluffy does live near the abandoned bag and he got in JJ and Benny’s face the other day. His owner scurried out and scooped him up right away.
You don’t mind cleaning up your Angel’s deposits but you really hate carrying the bag the home. You figure your neighbor will throw the bag in their trash. Your neighbor will throw you curses. And blame every dog owner who walks by.
You don’t like carrying Bruno’s large bagged deposits in your hand. You sling the bag into your belt loop. It slips off and lands with a thud on the sidewalk. This happened when Bruno noticed a squirrel and all 100 lbs of him lunged forward, dragging you half a block. There is no way you’re walking back to look for that bag.
They’re all plausible. Which one do you vote for? My vote is Horace and Fluffy.
