There are four other senses, subby. Like taste, for instance.

I could never deliberately lean down and grab their shiat, even through a plastic bag.

That's what I thought until I got my first puppy at age 42.

Mind you I'd already changed babies' diapers, wiped my Parkinsoned grandpa's butt when grandma was away and even gave my crippled mother a pre-medical appointment enema when my father was too sick to do it, but somehow the idea of picking up puppy poop through a plastic bag revolted me.

Then I just forced myself to do it and got good at it. It's just part of walking a dog in the city. It also gives me first-hand evidence of his intestinal health, etc.: everything from "OMG! Slime! Blood! Vet right away!" to "So that's where my coat button went, and there it can stay now."

It takes special mental effort to pick up after a stranger's dog though, kinda like I wouldn't want to work in a nursing home and have to wipe your grandfather's butt. Things connected to me and mine are special, that's all there is to it. (Of course you're welcome to pick up after my dog if you insist, just don't eat it in front of me.)

Finally something I am an expert at:
1. People DO yell at us blind people when we don't pick up every single piece of our dog's poop. People are very brave when they are 100% positive you can't punch them in the beak.
2. Blind people do not have enhanced senses in anything. We just have to try and use the other ones that still work.
3. We stop wiping when the job is donw, You can tell, And if we're wrong, skidmarks are only a theoretical concept to the blind.

Maybe when it stops feeling smeary? Or maybe they sniff the paper, whereas you simply taste it?

taurusowner: Not related to blindness and the like, but this one of the reason why I could never own a dog. I love how useful they are for protection and such and I'm sure they're great companions. But dog feces and dog saliva are two things that absolutely gross me out to no end. I don't even let my friends dogs lick me or anything because the spit and slobber grosses me out. I could never deliberately lean down and grab their shiat, even through a plastic bag.


Don't EVER have children. Babies just throw urine and vomit into the mix, often literally and sometimes even simultaneously. Every baby is just a G.G. Allin wannabe. Dogs are germaphobe dreams by comparison.

/have two dogs

mark.jms: Hum.

My childhood dog was a male black lab that never lifted his leg. Neutered a bit too early maybe?


I had a collie that had his balls all his life. For years he squatted to take a piss then he saw some other dogs lift leg and
no more squatting except to crap after that.

Now, can we get the SEEING owners of dogs take responsibility for cleaning up after them? The disability they suffer from apparently is just old, ordinary selfishness. (We clean up after our two labs, after all.)

My mom's last dog as a male rottweiler that never lifted his leg. Definitely neutered a bit too early.

If necessary, I'd do it. I mean, they're blind for crying out loud. Fortunately, it seems the dog trainers thought of everything.

They wait until after dark before taking their doggies out for poopie break. Then they can go where ever they want without having to clean up afterwards Yeah, I live in a HOA neighborhood if that's what your thinking...

The Loaf: Wait a minute... dogs that can poop on command? THAT IS AWESOME.


I trained my old roommate's dog to do so. If I told her "Go poop" she would at least squat and fake it if she didn't need to.
