Last week’s poll asked about your favorite sandwich sides and, not surprisingly, fries and chips (#2) ended up as the most popular selections even though I find both to be about the most boring things restaurants could put alongside a sandwich. The biggest surprise for me was the fact that even though I thought I had a decent number of options listed, other was the third most popular after the top two.
This week’s poll comes days after much of the snow has melted and mere seconds before we’re supposed to be pummeled by another 12″ to 18″ of snow. After the snow melted it created my #1 favorite spring time activity–cleaning up three months of my dog’s landmines in the yard. While there was only grass on about 1/3 of the yard, there was enough poop to fill an entire grocery bag and I have a feeling there are at least two more bags under the snow that’s left.
Yeah, I know it’s my fault for letting him do his thing and having the snow cover it for me but I’m just not going out there when it’s snowing, sleeting, or 1000 degrees below zero. It’s just not happening. My dog doesn’t require walks to use the bathroom (I don’t pity the people who train their animals to act in that way) and as such I have to put up with the yearly ritual where I spend two hours cleaning up his winter quarter mess.
What do you guys do? Do you walk your dogs and pick it up as you go? Do you let them out only to pick up their poop soon after it falls? Do you wait until the snow melts to get most of it or do you just leave it out there, regardless of the time of the year, to be made into mulch by the lawnmower?
