what a disappointment

Burnham Station Condominiums is no 1401 S. State St – the dog people there have a reputation as among the most responsible in the area.

But we found this unfortunate accident waiting for us on those grounds this morning. Somebody’s going to be tweeting about stepping in poo this AM:

It has been a while since we’ve seen something like this at Burnham Station. We hope it’s not the start of a disturbing new trend.

Poo Alley is just around the corner. Take it over there miscreant!

Poo Free Parks is looking for 10K signatures

Check out this PET-ition at Change.org!

I Want Poo Free Parks! Sign the PET-ition!

Dog owners, dog lovers, dog haters…no matter who you are, everyone despises stepping in POO at the park. The solution is proven and simple: provide the dog poo bags necessary for owners to pick up, and they will DOO it. Unfortunately, the cost for biodegradable bags, conveniently located dispensers, and continuous service is unaffordable for most park systems.

That’s when the Poo Free Parks Founder, Bill Airy, realized a brilliant solution: create a local business that provides a convenient and consistent supply of biodegradable bags to dog owners, but instead of charging the taxpayers, find local businesses who want to support the cause by advertising on a discrete sign attached to each station. This ensures that the dispenser stations are always filled with good quality biodegradable bags, free from graffiti and vandalism, and at no cost to the City or its taxpayers. Simple. Perfect.

Unfortunately, while your parks managers believe that this is a good program, there are a couple of residents out there who would claim that they speak for you, and would rather watch all of us step in poo than see this eco-friendly program enter our parks. They are putting up quite a stink, and this PET-ition serves as a way to turn their bark into the whimper that it really is.

Poo Free Parks® partners with municipalities around the nation to supply, install, and maintain eco-friendly pet clean-up stations, at no cost to the City or the taxpayer. Best of all, sponsorship revenues generated by Poo Free Parks® are shared with the park system for use towards other community programs.

If you feel that your park system should partner with Poo Free Parks, then please sign this PET-tion and pass it along.

Imagine – a poo bag dispenser on every corner…. It could happen.  And… it would cost us nothing. 

Find out more about Poo Free Parks, take a look at their interactive poo bag dispenser map (it’s teh awesome!), sign the PET-ition, and let your Alderman know you support the P0o Free Parks program!

poo in a bag or tasty treat?

Found this in an alleyway under the El:

The small rocks scooped up make it seem like a tasty treat!

big nasty one on wabash

Things seemed pretty clean on the streets during our walk with the pups this evening.

Until we came face to face with this:

Well sited, my friend.  It’s huge, but seems well camouflaged in the cracks and staining of the sidewalk. Dark, almost invisible, isn’t it? Sneaks up on you.

Some party-goer alighting their car will be stepping in that poo tonight for sure.

I don’t normally step in poo… but when I do, I prefer to step in a big nasty poo.

Here:
