Since coming to Wilmington, I've got a new set of heros!
It's not superman, or wonderwoman, or even the Heros on the Television show Heros.
Instead my Heros look a lot like this!
It's the cadre of responsible dog owners who scoop poop! Pooper Scooping is really truley Gross. before moving here, I pretty much tried to avoid the business, by walking my pup in isolated areas. But now, I am living in an apartment complex which is the only one in the city without size restrictions on dogs. Clearly, there are a lot of dogs here. And a lot of dogs equals a lot of poops.
I see about half the owners of dogs trailing after their pooches with a wadded up plastic bag, just waiting for the deed to be done. The others of course, attempt to pretend they somehow did not notice their dog, attached at the end of a leash, doing his business.
I've decided the people who do clean up after their dogs are really heroic. It's a thankless task, heaven knows the dog doesn't care, and nothing dampens anyones enthusiam more than watching someone clean up Poo from the ground.
But supposedly cleaning up poo is helpful to the environment and of course it adds to the beauty of any area, and who likes to step in doggie poo? And if you need a celebrity endorsement, well….even Barbie is doing it!
So my Hero for the day is all those hard working poop scoopers!!!! Cheers to you!!!!!!!!!
