Spring is in the air, dog poo’s on the ground

Today, the Scottish Terrier and Dog News is celebrating spring by sending you over to Flickr to look at Art Paw’s wonderful photo art of Scotties with flowers. The guy on the left is Atticus, but the artist also has a female Scot so pretty it makes the Scottie News want to take back everything it said about Scottie girls looking like old men and Bulgarian shotputters.

If things are still a little windblown in your part of the world, you’ll also appreciate these photos of a romp on the beach.

Beaches and flowers help us city dwellers forget the less pleasant sign of spring like a winter’s supply of leftover dog doo. Three cheers to Jennie MacLellan and her Scottish terrier, Zorro, who, according to a Calgary Herald report on Scoopy Doo Day, bring extra bags to the dog park and give them to people who forget theirs.

“Some people might not pick up intentionally, but I think a lot of people genuinely forget bags,” she said.

Hmmm, Scottie News thinks it’s more that people get caught up short when there’s an unexpected daily double. In fact, walking home yesterday with no dog in tow, I had to pull an extra bag from my purse and hand it off to a bagless Dachshund owner who was getting a lot of dirty looks from passers-by. “Thanks,” said the guy. “This is his second.”

The Scottish Terrier and Dog News didn’t want to see things get nasty as they did in this disputed dog poo incident that is now the object of an official probe.

  1. Yeah, it’s an old post from three years ago that I recycled so it’s possible that the link’s dead.

    Glad you liked the photos.
