His column is updated every day or thereabouts, so check back to see what on Dr. Dave's mind today.
In The Dark
Recently, a friend told me that she takes her dogs for a walk very early in the morning while it's still dark.
At times, she can't see exactly where her dogs stopped to defecate, so she couldn't very well be expected to pick it up.
Nice reasoning, although I'm sure she wouldn't maintain that line of thought if the toilet was her own front lawn.
To avoid giving all dog owners a bad name, if you're prepared to ignore piles of dog feces that you can't immediately see, then make sure your dogs are defecating in your own yard!
Or buy a small flashlight so you can clean up the mess your dog leaves in the park, etc. (And make sure that you and your dog are dressed for nighttime walks.
DID YOU KNOW...
Did you know that there are seven groups of classification in the American Kennel Club registry?
Plus, there is a Miscellaneous Class: (ex. Italian Spinoni, Jack Russell Terrier).
