Clean up your Dog's Mess

A little off the Thailand topic.

I used to find little piles of poop in my yard when I mowed the grass.  Thought it was some neighbor letting their little mutt do its business in my yard.  Then started to find them inside the fenced in back yard.   

Finally found out it was, racoons, possums, and skunks dropping their load in my yards!

Have to agree, and was leary about posting myself.  Will agree it's unsightly on the walkways, especially if making it to the bottom of your footwear.

 

Having a dog, and not picking up after it ...  stay with me.  Don't have a yard at the moment, so off to the park in the AM, and surf in the PM.  Park, it's free fertilizer.  She doesn't do her business on the walkways, or near the exercise equipment, and usually where nobody will even see. let alone step in.

 

Surfside, if kids around playing, easy enough, shoe a hole, and push in & cover.  Usually don't bother otherwise, as not a beach people sit on.  Polluted bay next to small town.  so polluted, I won't walk the dog on surfside fronting the town.  Don't want her licking her paws after walking on that section of sand.

 

One side of the bay is OK, though I wouldn't swim in it.  Beside, anything she deposits, gets washed in before the next day, as I yet to see anything the next day, and we hit the same spot all the time.  Along with the 20 ish soi dogs, who make their contributions, though usually in the grassy area just prior to the surf.  Between the bike lane, and seawall, where most folks sit.  The area most people walk through to get surfside 🤣 We go a few more meters before making any deposits.

 

If in the city, Krung Thep, and no grass around, then walk along the sewer side of the road, and easy to knock anything into the grated curbside.  Again, soi dogs make more than their share of contributions known.   Picking up would equate to picking up a piece of trash at the land fill 🤣

 

With my back, I'm not bending over to pick anything up.

Meh, the Centara Chaan Talay in Trat used to be one of our favourite family holiday hotels on account of it being so remote (until they started letting it decay). Last time we went they'd become 'dog friendly'. Other than the yapping dogs keeping us awake all night from the nearby rooms, the beachfront had a nice coating of fresh dog Krap. . . We never went back.

A Centara not maintaining the their beachfront ... hmm

 

Looking good to me.  Hotel was recommended to me by another pet owner who stayed there.

You see, this is one of my problems with dog lovers. Aside from the fact they're unable to accept that other people can't pretend their dogs aren't dirty, they're so delusional that they think my kids having to step in their dog's excrement when on holiday somehow makes the world a better place.

 

 

 

 

You seem to have some massive phobia / irrational hangup about dogs and their owners.

 

As for you comments about dog friendly hotels....well there are plenty of people, including me, that would rather see some cute dogs at breakfast in a hotel than miserable farangs with screaming children running about the place.  

 

At least the dogs don't pick their noses and scratch their backsides then go touching all the food on the breakfast buffet.

 

The dogs also don't <deleted>, vomit or <deleted> themselves in the hotel swimming pool either.

 

Also, statically, people are more likely to catch germs and diseases off children than pet dogs.

 

Last hotel I stayed we have a  screaming crying baby in the next room for a few nights, and the couple's other 2 kids running up and down the corridor outside our room laughing and shouting all evening.  I can't see how that is worst than a dog yapping.

No I just don't like dog $#it and I don't like dogs. It sounds like you're trying to convince me somehow children can be compared with dogs, and you call me irrational? I never saw anyone taking their kids to $#!t on the beach. I also never saw a human child eating excrement. To me, dogs are dirty animals, only fit for use as a tool (guards, farming, aid for the blind etc etc). I understand some childless couples (gay, infertile, whatever) treat their dogs as children. In any case, no one here is convincing me my dislike of dog $#it on the beach is irrational and it is somehow socially acceptable to let your dog s#!t wherever it wants. What about you, do you find the smell attractive? Do you like walking in it?

 

About owners, I find most to be irresponsible and oblivious to the offense they cause. I don't like to have my crotch licked by a dog I know has probably just eaten $#it. Maybe you think I should like that? I blame dog owners for that, not the dog. I also blame dog owners for letting their dogs run into the road etc etc. Like I said, dog lovers can't get their head around the fact some people don't like dogs, and their $#it. They can't understand why I find it offensive to have some strange dog bark at me or my children in a public road, they can't understand why I find it offensive to have some strange dog drool on me in my hotel corridor. They call you 'irrational' because you don't like that. They think everyone should love their stupid dog like they do.

It's been a while since I've been to Hua Hin, so maybe this has changed.

They have horse rides on the beach there, and guess what there is in the sand and surf.  Usually there are dogs following the horses to devour their droppings.  No need to mention what the dogs leave behind. 

The beach is for the view only, you don't want to actually visit it.

 

If you take the "it's only poop attitude" you should visit India: the stuff is everywhere, but no problems for you if you think it's only . . .

I lived there for a while some years back.  Afterwards, in the US, they found I had some rare form of intestinal worm.  Well, rare in North America.  The specialist had never actually encountered it before.  He told me that it's caused by fecal contact -- the larvae come in through the skin and the critters make their home in the intestines.  Just lovely.  The story makes a good case for not wearing sandals.

Haha..... my pet hate is if eating at a friends, they let their dog sit there staring at you or begging for food..... I complained once and was immediately put in my place by the guys wife for not loving her little darling.....

I regard dogs as unhygienic....

You having kids and then taking them on holiday to somewhere you expect to be pristine is more of a problem to the environment than dog poop.

Toxocariasis is an illness found in humans that occurs when they are infected with parasitic roundworms, originating from the fecal matter of dogs.........50 children a year lose their eyesight just in the US.....but then again its only poop.

How many dogs and other animals are killed each year by humans just for fun? Humans are much more of a problem in this world than dog poop.
