Good morning my cherries and daggers
Hope you’ve had a better start to your Monday than me.
I woke up 10 minutes before my alarm went off and just lay in my bed hoping that I’d somehow fall asleep and it would feel like I’m well-rested when my alarm eventually went off. Well, it didn’t work that way and in actual fact I had just fallen asleep again when the alarm decided to scream at me.
I got out of bed and thankfully had a lovely hair day. I had my coffee and got dressed and as soon as I walked out of the front door, I stepped into a mushy pile of doggy-doo on the front step. Thanks Bubbles.
I’m sure Bubbles had an evil little smirk under her fluffy white Maltese fur this morning, but since I love her so much, I’ll let it slide this time.
So anyway, I had nothing to write today as my weekend was pretty uneventful so I compiled a little fact and fiction list I had found on http://pettastics.blogspot.com about dog poo myths.
That’s just how I roll:
FICTION: Dog poo is a good fertilizer! Wrong! Dog poo is completely toxic to your lawn. Often times it will burn or even discolor your grass. This misconception is highly confused with cow manure, which could be beneficial to one’s lawn.
FACT: Dog poo is bad for the environment! Under the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) pet waste is classified as a dangerous pollutant which falls into the same category as toxic chemicals and oil. Yes, your dogs poo is just as dangerous as those deadly gases.
FICTION: Dog poo will go away! Many dog owners think that dog poop will eventually fade into the ground and go away. Due to weather conditions, dog poo does clean itself up but it’s lasting effects don’t go away. Did you know that pet waste can spread parasites such as hookworms, ringworms, tapeworms and Salonella?Yes, the poop will disappear from your yard but the parasite eggs can linger for YEARS!
FACT: Not picking up dog poo at an apartment or residential community can result in a fine or eviction! Your neighbors don’t want to smell your dog’s poop, and they definitely don’t want to have those moments when they accidentally step in it. Your dog’s poo plays a large role in your community. Often times there are other dogs living in the surrounding areas that are effected from dog poo. When walking your dog, be sure to clean up after them. Dog poop has TONS of bacteria that may cause diseases that are particularly prone to children.
But they’re so adorable that we just can’t stay mad at them for leaving their shite right where we can step in it, so we just wash our shoes and move on with our lives.
Anyway have an aweome Monday peeps!
