Monday Musings' Results!

First, we'd like to thank everyone who weighed in-boy did we have fun reading your guesses!

It seems that most of you would have had more presence of mind than Parental Unit did on that particular day-six of eleven comments suggested that we kindly (or passive-aggressively) offer a poop bag. A few of the more aggressive among you hoped that we had chosen #3, which was to wrassle the duo to the ground! Yikes! Neither of us physically or emotionally capable of that, although we can fantasize, can't we?

We do feel compelled to compliment two of you:

Tank-you're mostly right about not being able to picture us doing any of those four choices, but...
Cat Chat really nailed it, by choosing the last option. And no, we didn't see "Curb Your Enthusiasm", but would love to one of these days-we hear it's hilarious!

So here's what really happened: We met this guy nearly at the end of our 45 minute walk, neither of us was feeling too great because of the heat...and we were out of bags! When we parted company, the dog had just pooped and Parental Unit assumed that he'd pick it up. But her sixth sense kicked in after we were several yards away, and that's when she stopped and looked back. Sorry to say that she just "tsked" a few times and we continued home. (She really didn't feel "superior", that was added for humor-O.K., maybe just a tiny bit!) Parental Unit has to really be in a feisty mood to "confront" anyone about such matters-unless it involves injury to me-see this post where she was in a confrontational frenzy: boccibeefs.blogspot.com/2009/11/we-was-mugged-vote-now-with-your.html
But we're embarrassed to admit that we never thought about just offering the guy a bag, even if we did have extras, so we'll save that trick for the next time this happens-thanks!

We're already looking forward to next Monday to see what new dilemma you can help us with!

YAY!!! I got it!!! lol!!

OMG if you can at all see "Curb" from last Sunday I am telling you, you will laugh!

There is a scene about a dog pooping on Larry David's yard and he confronts the owner :)

We have one of those coolio bag holders that attaches to Darby's leash. We always offer other people a bag if it appears they don't plan to pick up their pooty. If they walk away, we'll pick it up for them --- not because we love poop, but every time it's left lying around it's a black eye to all dog owners.

It might not have been very SAFE to confront that guy you know...
If a nut has a Gun and you confront you get shot... A knife... you could get stabbed.. BUTT in this case you could have gotten... Spattered!!! I'm just sayin. hehehe
Take an extra bag or two.. maybe the next guy will be really CUTE. It's nice to share. BaaaaWaaaah.

It's always hard, isn't it?

I once picked up the poop right in front of the lady and her dog as I didn't know how to confront her and didn't feel good to tell her to do so at all. So I picked it up and hope she got the clue.

We have offered people bags before and this one couple at the Park of Roses just walked away anyway. Some people are so rude and gross.

Bocci said...

Wow, Sagira...at such a beautiful place as the park of Roses, no less!

I saw your adorable face over at George the lad and had to stop by. Your profile says mutt but I see some terrier in you. :) In the past we rescued a welsh and lakeland terrier. Last year spared Mr. Bojangles on the 11th hour from being euthanized in a kill shelter. He is part airdale and lord knows what else, but he is a hoot. I'm sure I will be back to visit. xo
