We have been wanting to write our opinion for a long time and as time goes on, we see that the problem is getting worse and worse the more we are out and about. In most parks and trails in Central Oregon, doggie doo-doo bags are provided. While most owners do use them, too many leave the used bags along the trails, on fences or in the middle of the trail.
If the poo is left to decompose outside of the bags, that is exactly what will happen. Decomposition! But in the bags, they are more of an eye sore and do not decompose. Come on people. If it makes you feel better to pick up the poo, (and we are glad that you do) please finish the job and walk it to a trash can. We own three oversized dogs, who, you can imagine, make big messes in the parks, yet we can walk five miles with it in the doo-doo bags and toss it in the trash as a courtesy to others who want to enjoy the outdoors as much as we do without seeing the mess or having to pick up after other less-courteous dog owners.
