I got yer shovel-ready project right here

Ahhh spring. The time dog-owners dread. The snow melts, revealing the bounty of gifts Barfy has left for you in the backyard all winter long.

I found something that might be helpful for other dog people.

If you have one of these clamshell-type post hole diggers, it works quite well for extracting the poo from the snow and ice. And it’s better to get it now while it’s semi-frozen than in a few weeks when it’s almost liquid.

At that point, I recommend a pair of industrial-strength, chemical grade rubber gloves. Then you can just dig right in there and get ‘er done.

Good idea!  We have one of those we used once to dig post hole for a fence and I wondered what we'd use it for.  I'll get the 11 year old right on it after the storm.

I prefer head mounted laser poo-vaporizers....TimK would you get on that for me? 
Short of that, I just collect 'em all and sneak over in the night and stealthily place them in your back yard Brian.

This is why I don't own a dog. How is it that you can feed a dog 1 pound of dog food and they manage to generate 2 pounds of poop?

Baci, I thought that was you. And that's why I'm developing a catapult (or pootapult ... trepoochet?) to return your goodies to you.
People may want to avoid the Endion neighborhood as I adjust the trajectory.

My castle can withstand the best you trepoochet can dish out. This gives a whole new meaning to "scud buster".

yes, another tool to help people pick up after their dogs.  hopefully this motivates others to pick up the crap before rains come and carry it into our streams and the Lake.

Or in our case, into our basement.

as much as I love spring I dread the walks in the park with all the accumulated poop festering around.

Wait till morning and see if you're still declaring victory, pal.

Brian, if you need ammo, I have the combined winter collection of used Pro Plan Large Breed Formula dog food (some of it also Senior formula) produced by a 50-pound chow, a 55-pound pit bull, and a 70-pound Rhodesian ridgeback cooling under a fresh layer of snow in my backyard. 

Your welcome to it--for a price....

Hey now no ganging up...Tony you just keep up what you've already been doing, spreading your $4!7 evenly across all of Duluth. 

BTW that senior formula crap sticks like a bad hangover after night of SoCo and dews at a libertarian party convention.

Has anyone tried one of those in-lawn poo digesters?

Every time it gets warmer I seem to get a nice bag of the stuff. Be sure to double bag it lest you piss off the garbagemen.

I'm glad it snowed. My dog was starting to take unguided walks to find pristine ground.
