To The Inconsiderate Dog Owner

So I have been running again.....OUCH is all I have to say at this point.

However what I am writing about is the disturbing experience I had last evening. I will remind you that it was raining last night, I love running in the rain. Something about it is quite therapeutic and relaxing. Not sure why it just is. So there I was about 1/2 mile out running down Grover starting to really get in the mood and setting my pace quite well I might add, the music was playing in my ears and the rain had really slowed down to a mist which is simply blissful. I was just starting to get into the idea of my run when bam I step in the largest pile of dog poo you have ever seen:( I stop dead in my tracks and look behind me to make sure I wasn't mistaken about what I had just experienced and no I hadn't there was a ginormous pile of poo right in the middle of the sidewalk. I then glanced around thinking I might be on Candid Camera or something. Nope not on Candid Camera. I was bit frustrated and used another word for the word poo but after wiping off my shoe I continued on. Don't know why I am sharing this? Consider it a public Service Announcement I guess.

And to the Inconsiderate Dog Owner....I could have slipped in that and really injured myself. Do me a favor and carry a bag next time!

not because your shoe was full of *&#t but because the way you described it was SOO funny. i love funny! :) in the grass, i get that, (not really, but whatever) but ON THE SIDEWALK!!???? really now. i think we should start a 'rant and rave' section in the Lynden Tribune for all 50 people that read it. who knows, maybe that darn dog owner will be one of the lucky readers?? we can only hope.
good for you for getting out there just the same! poop or no poop, you go girl! :)
