Dog owners.....hang the lot of them!!!!

Slight Post Deviation, but still about Dog Poo:

I was in the Falklands in 1985 (5 Months) There was a RAF SNCO, (Chief Technician) that had a trick he used to play on anyone he didn't like. He would collect Old Dog Poo, wrap it in Clingfilm, place it in a Cardboard Box, tie Fish Hooks to short lengths of Fishing Line, Tape the Fishing Line to the Box Lid, insert the Fish Hooks under the Dog Poo and wrap up the Box and Post it to the intended Victim! :oops:

Victim, opens the Parcel, opens the Box Lid and the Fish Hooks Rip open the Clingfilm! :rolleyes::eek:
 
I've never been a dog owner and never intend to be one. I find the UK's (and increasingly the rest of the world's) obsession with dogs quite depressing. But I know I have to accept it (along with the obsession with kicking a bag of air around for 90 minutes!) So ALFAitalia's rant was pure heaven for me to read.

Where I live isn't too bad for the offending dog poo, although you wouldn't think so by the number of complaining posts in our local Facebook pages. But there are still owners/walkers who are more of a sh1t than what their pooches dump. I have a lot of hedging adjacent to public paths and several times I've just managed to pull out dumped bags of poo before my hedge trimmers shred it to spread around. :mad:

The general complaint that accompanies Facebook rants about dog poo is that there aren't enough poo bins around. We're lucky enough to live in an area with lots of green walks and lakes to enjoy, but people still expect bins in the remoter parts - and of course people to empty them. As a non-dog owner, I object to my council taxes being spent on pandering to dog owners who are too lazy to carry their dog's doodads home and put into their own bins.

(I should add that I have no objection to dogs on the whole, as long as they're not barking noisily and not approaching me to sniff my balls. Most owners are very good and can detect that I have no interest in their choice of companion, but there are still too many with those long leads who make no attempt to stop their dog approaching me. Since a large dog removed a great chunk from my leg when I was eight, I prefer to keep my distance. The "Oh, he only wants to play, he won't hurt you", owners do nothing to allay my fears.)
Dog owners who let their animals try to jump all over me pee me right off when they inform me that they only want “to play”.
My usual answer is “well I don’t want to play with your ****ing dog”

My brother has got a Welsh Terrier thing that has had zero training whatsoever. She has zero recall, jumps up and try’s to eat food off the table and barks consistently. All of this goes on while my brother keeps saying to me “she only wants to say hello”

When I was young we had a beautiful Rough Collie called Lassie who was lovely and so well behaved and in Skiathos a huge black Retriever/Shepherd cross called Dave who was also well behaved.

Given the thread title, that's a very fitting reg number:)
 
Guilty of having a hound. Approx 65Kg of crapping machine.
Guilty of her being a difficult to train to robotic obedience levels.

I try to consider other peoples opinions and preference to not engage with her. That's not always easy as some have approached her, and then tell me to control my dog. Those tw*ts get my angry response. If someone believes that there is risk from say approaching a BNP skin 'ead, they wouldn't approach.
Btw there is no risk of attack by our pooch.
But how can I know which walkers will excite her with their appreciation of a beautiful doggy, their words invariably, and those that walk in the Derbyshire countryside and don't want to see off lead dogs?

But yeh those owners that think leaving 'their' dogs crap for others to come across annoy the hell outa me too. I've challenged a couple of owners, with volume (to embarrass them).
One of these hangs on my belt by a carabiner.
Sleeve it with a bag, like a glove.
Pick up offending / offensive deposit.
Bag peeled off and tied to enclose deposit.
Tied bag to inside the picker upper.
Back on belt to dispose contents later.

My dog shouldn't be anyone else's problem.

But during covid it seems tooo many got a dog, and now don't carry the responsibility of having one.

Just my humble opinion.

65kg of dog equals bloody big craps. Good job you are a responsible owner, you could probably lose a small child in one of those. Surprised you don't carry a shovel on your Batman belt 😁
 
@ALFAitalia the final photo of your guns, is that a BSA Meteor air rifle with a scope?
It is....I bought it brand new with the sight in 1980 on my 13th birthday. I still use it for rats once in a while when I can't be bothered to pump up the pneumatic one.

What about the dog owners who take their pooch for a walk but actually carry it the entire time.
Or those who take it for a walk but actually push it around in a dog buggy, which I believe is called a - stroller!

Bless. Love all the giant breeds.

I've posted it before but I have a friend who has 3 Newfies. She's a proper sophisticate and it's certainly a look her with her 1000 quid Chanel dresses topped with the obligatory "drool towel" pinnie and permanent grazed knees were they have her over !!!!

I can relate to most of that.
Can't afford those dresses though.
 
65 kg of dog equates to large poos. My dog weights 35 kg and I pick up every crap he does.
It's not the dog that's at fault but the owner who does not pickup the discharge !

One of my black cab driver mates has one of those for his Terrier thingy!

She’s the most pampered pouch ever with hugely expensive food along with visits to the dog psychiatrist. (Matey and his wife don’t have any children)

...but never got involved.
What's happened, you seem to have mellowed since your first post
Some of these posts are so funny.
Up here, the council are worse than the owners. The bins for depositing the bags are always overflowing. Do they get emptied, once in a blue moon
