Ah, yes.  The Picking up of the Poo. >:D

It has been over 20 years since I had a dog.  In that time, I have moved from a single family dwelling with front and back yards to a condo with a lanai.  I used to let my dog poop in the backyard and clean it up once a week.  Now I do the responsible owner shtick - poo bag & all.  I really don't like the feel of warm dog poop, even through the plastic.  Bonus points for loose bowels or diarrhea [shudder].  I have to wash my hands right after I toss the bag in an appropriate receptacle.  I have individually wrapped wet ones in my purse for the dog park and more wet ones in the car for drives.

I much prefer mucking horse manure. >:D

The commercial threads have mentioned an ad for Poo-pourri, a liquid that one drips into the toilet to cover any subsequent odors.  On Sunday, Gene Weingarten tested Poo-pourri.

The relevant paragraph:

Quote
I am here to make my report. I am typing this in the first-floor powder room of my home. I have just used the product as directed and can report that, as promised, there is no typical bathroom smell. Instead, there is a suffocating pseudo-floral stench far more vile than anything the human body can produce. I feel as though I am trapped in a bathysphere into which is being pumped not life-giving air but pure cologne, a thick mist of it, like the stuff worn by low-rent drag queens. It smells like a garland of flowers, but only sort of, in the sense that drag queens only sort of resemble Judy Garland.


I don't think he liked it.   :)

In all my years of owning cats I've had maybe a handful of cat-gas incidents.  One of them was this evening as I lay underneath the guest bed putting some boxes away.  Boy cat came to investigate squished himself down to climb on top of a box and let out a truly noxious smell.  The problem is the guest bed is low to the ground so I was flat on my stomach and had to try and belly crawl backwards out from under the bed.

Midnight Kitty, I totally agree with you on mucking horse manure vs. warm dog poop.  I'd rather clean ten stalls than pick up after a dog.

I third that. Horse poop is much easier to deal with.

Could you carry one of those small sandbox toy shovel? Then, put it in the plastic bag, use it to scoop up the mess and invert the baggie.

For those kind of squicked out by the dog poos - I carry a sandwich bag of either sand or kitty little in my pocket for the , ahem,  less than solid poos.  Still gross, but easier to pick up.

The extremely nasty liquid Jack was leaking turned out to be pus from an abcessed anal gland. The vet drained it. Jack was seriously butthurt for a few days (made me wobbly just to *look* at it).

He's getting better. Our bedspread got washed twice in hot water.

This made me laugh so hard, it's not funny. Because I can see how his butt would hurt, but I can also see him acting all butthurt from the experience. Well done, Ms_Cellany, well done indeed.

And yes, an abcessed anal gland would be extremely painful. Poor Jack, I hope he's feeling better now.
