I just have to vent a little this morning …
Several times now I've encountered joggers who insist on jogging with their dog but never allow the dog to stop and poop. Instead the dog is dragged along while s/he is pooping down the sidewalk.
I think this is a form of punishment and just cruelty to the dog who obviously really has to go.
I think this is just selfishness on the part of the jogger, who can't be bothered to stop a few seconds for the dog but must absolutely mind her/his jogging time.
I think this is unfriendly to others using the sidewalk, because not only do they not stop for the dog to poop, they don't stop to clean it up either - so now there's a poop trail for others to step in.
I hope they accidentally jog into poop and track it all over their nice carpets at home!
