Da Harlow was worried!
Pooper Scoopers freeze....
Every pick-up includes a short and frustrated struggle to release the scooper from the grass it's stuck to. ...and no, the poop scooper is not invited to live with the rest of the tools... Once it's free, I've found that the scooper does not want to open it's mighty jaws of poop doom. Getting the scooper to function is another issue - I currently use a scooper that is missing teeth. Mainly from trying to get the jaws open. ...and yes, I could switch to a standard rake and scoop, but think that my next point may make that type useless.
Poop freezes to the ground...
This is the reason I don't think I could use a rake and scoop. Some poop needs to be pried from the ground using a shovel or other solid item. This is also the other reason my scooper is missing teeth. Never try to pry frozen poop from the ground with a plastic scooper. Just FYI... Additionally we've had a poop stuck to the ground since October.
I've given up on trying to collect it. I also had to buy a new scooper because of it.
Frozen poop does not deter a poop eater....
Yes, one of our beloved pups is a poop eater. We won't mention names, but let us just say that it's a certain nekkid pup wearing fuzzy leg warmers. You'd think ice cold poopsicles would deter him, but they don't. ...and that's all we will say on that subject!
|One of these pups is guilty of Grand Theft Poop - and it's not the fuzzy Princess with the cardboard tube in the front. Just saying...|
Okay, enough said!
