Hmm, Yesterday while trying to pick up after one of my dogs I found that the bags were so cold my fingers went right through  into the warm stuff....... Still, it stopped me licking my fingers for an hour or two! Sad

I've got no problem picking up after my dogs, not sure how you clear up yellow snow though?
People seem to be up in arms over the fouling yet the amount of kids i see playing in the river behind the football field despite the fact there are rats around it amazes me.

well ive found it easier to find my doggys little poos in the snow.  Cool i find it stands out and its easier to find. but as for those cheap nappy bags... theyre no good, - theyre much too thin. Peas, try the black ones sold in pound stretcher - theyre cheap as chips and strong too!!  Wink

Not normally an issue, I walk them on private land and then I really dont have to pick up!

Yuk! I'd have thought it best to pick it up whether on private land or not. (You might tread in it next time!)

If it's not your own private land I'd have thought manners and consideration would at least morally oblige a pick-up...?!

oops! Peas! just bear in mind that unless they have given you prior permission to not pick up on their land, you could still be prosecuted. sorry, but this is why there is SO much dog mess around and us dog owners get such a bad press...  Shocked

I dont think I am going to prosecute myself any time soon. Curious though, when we are out in public my Flattie always sticks his bum in the hedge!

Children will always be drawn to water,and the risk of disease is nominal,but dog mess has to picked up by law,and who wants to be trod ding in it,its dangerous to children and very unpleasant when trod ding in and taken into your home, that's why we are up in arms about it, when i had my dog it never left my property but i still picked its mess up,not only for my and my family's benefit but for the people who came onto my land.

If it's his own private land though as he states then other people shouldn't be on it unless they've been invited.
