Know what I realized? I managed to hang my clothes line right over the area where the dogs like to poop the best. There were literally piles of crap all along the length of the clothes line. It was as if we were keeping a cow or horse or other large animal back there. Seriously. I picked up a whole grocery bag full of shit, and that was just from beneath my line.
The question is, have the dogs always mostly crapped along that one line? Or, did they start doing it after I hung the clothes line last spring? And, why? I honestly didn't think dogs were that particular about where they dropped a turd. I know that hamsters and rodents have a spot in the corner of their cages and whatnot, but dogs? They aren't supposed to be that sophisticated.
So, there I was, squatting in the yard, cleaning up crap and musing over the location of the dogs' preferred potty line. What a morning. I probably looked like I was the one dropping the turds, as I was hunched over, walking along, and stopping every few inches to snag another piece of poo. At least the grass will be green.
Do your dogs have a poop place, or are mine the only psychotic pooches around?
