Confessions of a Neurotic Dog Mom: The Poop in My Pocket


It was the second week we had June. She was still crying at night. I was on about three hours of sleep.

I took her out in the snow, then left her with my fiancé. I was meeting friends for a quick dinner.

Delicious meal. We split the bill.

I reached into my pea coat pocket for my wallet, and pulled out a small, tightly tied baggie of dog poo.

…Poo coat.

    Several years ago, the last cold day of the season and I returned from a dog walk when i had only one dog. My ADD must have kicked in. Months later when it was time for the serious cold weather jacket, I pulled out the plastic poop bag. oops.

  2. I have this amazing leash bag that I can put full bags in so I don’t look like the weirdo carrying around a bag of crap. Well, a few weeks ago I got a call fro my ex while we were walking, about a lost dog and we got to talking and I was terribly flustered when we headed home. A few hours later, I could not fathom what the awful stench in the apartment was and assumed someone had used the house as a bathroom and searched it floor to ceiling finding nothing…until the next walk, when I found a full bag still hidden in my leash bag. D’oh!

    • This makes me feel a million times better! Small price to pay for not walking around holding the baggie of poo. I love it.

  5. I draw the line at sticking it in my pocket, but I did throw it on the floor of the car not too long ago and forgot it. I remembered it when I got in the car the next morning.

    • …I’ve done that too. I’m glad you resisted the pocket though! I need more boundaries.
