If you’re not a pet owner or pooper-scooper, don’t read any further.
You can tell a lot by a pet’s ‘tuppences’ and as a dog owner, we take our clean-up responsibility very seriously.
Obviously with recent events, clearing up as been practically impossible, but then we have confined her to the garden whilst starving her of her normal diet and replacing it with boring boiled rice. She was not happy!!
Both of us had diligently checked where she’d been, and apart from a pool of stinky goo, there was no blood or anything nasty lurking in it.
I cleared up a little yesterday afternoon as it was on our front lawn quite close to next door’s drive, and again there was nothing suspicious in it.
This morning, she has woken up bright and attentive (must know it’s her birthday and hoping for treats) after a good night of uninterrupted sleep.
I’ve walked her round the block, keeping her sniffing to a minimum, and she has been very obliging in not going too far ahead, responding to my hand claps to distract her when necessary.
We had a successful jobby, not much, but formed and solid, normal in colour and no extra whiffiness. As said earlier, boiled chicken and rice is on her menu today, but she’s had two biscuits and a little boiled rice. Methinks she’s looking forward to something tastier!
