Daily Poop Patrol.

Actually I'm a couple days behind... usually it's every day...



lucky for me I have them both trained to go in 11 or 13 dedicated places..... so it's pretty easy...


Mitch has a couple new secret poopin spots....but I'm wise to him.

Sitka once vomited a whole poop.... not an intestinal blockage, this definitely made through his sphincter

"For creatures of the wild: those who ride, grow, protect, challenge, forage, and create.
For anyone inspired by owning as little as possible.
And for anyone who's touched ocean floor or mountain air and liked it."

Interesting subject, as Rolf chews contentedly on his morning duck neck, Hans snoozes at my feet, and I am having my coffee!
LOL

I pick it up immediately and bag it, then I put it in one of those wonderful metal trash cans that are made in the USA.... Behrens. Keeps the smell contained until Tuesday, trash day. I even spray painted it dark bronze so it will blend into the landscape and not be such an eyesore.
Recently, with a puppy that went 100 times a day and small poops that I couldn’t find, I bought some red silicone coasters, to throw next to the poo as he goes so I could find it immediately as soon as I put the dog up. I congratulate myself repeatedly for this brilliant idea, no searching for 10 minutes in the grass.

Also, if I have a few I didn’t pick up and I say to Hans, “Come on, let’s scoop the yard,” he gets all excited and bounds out, then makes one, even if he already went that day.
I used to get annoyed, because that give me more work, but now I just laugh.

Um... May I ask, is that a mountain of poop within those wooden walls?

Yes.


About 15 years and 3 dogs worth.


Interestingly, It doesn't smell at all.



I think it's the quality food we feed.

Lol! That reminds me of when I was a kid. My grandparents and aunts and uncles all lived on farms. We went up every weekend my mom was off. They had cattle. Once I was running around out there with my cousins and climbed over a fence, jumped down and landed up past my ankles in cow manure! Lost my flip flops, legs covered in poop! I hadn't noticed they had jumped further out off the fence! Evidently that was a spot where they dumped the manure after scooping the carral! I'd wonder if you have like a bubbling brew there! That didn't really have any stronger ordor than regular farm smell out there, it just looked like dirt, till I landed in it!!
but know that people that live out on farms etc often have areas that is like the poop dump! I don't know if they "moved" it or used for fertilizer or what!

I used to compost the poop when I had the kennel. Definitely a better alternative than lugging stinky bags of it off to the dump, with all the windows down, and my head hanging out to escape the smell!

I started doing that in winter, when the turds were surrounded by ice and snow. The dump charges by the pound, and here I am paying to dump frozen water?? SERIOUSLY??

So, I started a compost pile at the edge of the property. By spring everything was freeze-dried, crumbly and ODOUR-FREE!!
