Every dog poops. Unlike me and you, dogs don't poop in the toilet. They usually do their business outside in the grass. Now, just because you can't flush poop down the grass like with a toilet doesn't mean that it's OK to leave your dog's poop there. Some people may believe that dog poop is good fertilizer, but the truth is that it's not. Dog poop is actually a pollutant that will kill grass.
Today, I am proud to co-host the Scoop That Poop Campaign that was created by Sugar the Golden Retriever of the blog Golden Woofs to raise awareness on the importance of picking up your dog's poop. The other co-hosts of the campaign include My GBGV Life, BoingyDog, The World According to Garth Riley, Terrier Torrent, Dogster and Oz the Terrier.
Dogster has collaborated with Golden Woofs to create the infographic below. Listed on the infographic are some reasons why dog owners should scoop their dog's poop. Remember that when you bring a dog home, their poop is also part of your responsibility. You can't just leave it laying on the ground!
Dog poop can be compared to trash and litter that is thrown on the ground. Both are harmful to the environment as well as the creatures that live there. Do you want to be known as a "litter-bug"? If not, be a Scooper Hero and Scoop That Poop!
