What are humans for - if not for cleaning up after us!

Not sure how it works in your part of the world, but over here people have to be reminded to clean up after their pets when out on walks. I think this sign is amazing, just a pity some humans don't stop to read it!

My human is thinking of starting a 'name and shame' blog for humans that she catches in action (or catches NOT performing the action they should...). Let's face it guys, we can perform many tricks but cleaning up after ourselves - well, that's what we've got you lot for!

On a lighter note - hope you're all having a fab weekend! Can't wait to go walking with my human tomorrow - let's just hope she doesn't embarrass me with the naming-and-shaming crusade she's on...


  1. Hi, gorgeous Abbey, Chloe, George and Bacardi; we have enjoyed all your fun posts this week, especially the cute bath shot and all your beautiful photos...We are trying to catch up with our wonderful friends on the weekends; our Mommy's new job, along with her part time one, makes it difficult to visit during the week now...We hope you all enjoy a fun weekend together, sweet friends...kisses, we miss you guys!...Calle, Halle, Sukki

  2. We have the same problem over here in the states! It drives us crazy, too. I like your mom's idea.

    Your pal, Pip

  3. We haven't seen any signs like that around here but we sure wish everyone would clean up after their pets. In pulic parks and on the Blue Ridge Parkway, it's just nice to be able to walk and not step in well you know! Mom carries a doggie cleanup bag and pack with her because she just thinks it's the right thing to do. It never fails when I go out, I get excited and have to go right after jumping out of the car!! Can't help it but mom has to clean it up. Lots of love, Holly

  4. Same here!

    And even with the reminders, poo still happens!


  5. yep we sure do have the same problem here in the states!
    Love what Khyra said "poo still happens" lol

  6. Sure it is a problem here too!
    But... nobody cares! And you can't see one of those signs here!
    I wish people were more responsible!
    Happy weekend!
    Kisses and hugs

  7. I guess 'poo still happens' all over the world then!

    Sharp one Khyra's mom!

  8. hey Abbey,

    That is a pretty big sign! The signs around where I live are little, but the humans around here sure do give nasty looks if an owner does not pick up the poop! My human always picks up mine. I trained her well!

    I hope you have a great walk! And don't worry, all dogs are embarrassed at some point by their humans!


  9. I added myself to follow your blog. You are more than welcome to visit mine and become a follower if you want to.

    God Bless You :-)


  10. emilene: I am following both of your blogs now. They seem to represent my life. Thank you!

  11. People are horrible at cleaning up after their dogs here too!

    Nubbin wiggles,

  12. JJ - coming from a writer of your calibre, I am over the moon to read your comment - thank you!

    Oskar - Great to hear from you, hope your mom is feeling shipshape! My human has been so busy, I need to get her to post on my blog as well, she is spending way too much time on her own stuff!

  13. I love the clouds spilling over Table Mountain!
