I have come to realize I talk a lot about pooh, I’ve had posts about pooh IN my shoe, Kato peeing on my leg, stepping in pooh, and more recently waiting for Laila to pooh out my contact lens case. I am starting to have serious concerns about this myself but this story about pooh is, well….. Nothing short of amazing in my opinion.
It was after dark and I wanted to walk the dogs and figured Staples had seen enough of us for a week or two so decided to take them window shopping in downtown Mission. The streets were deserted, no other dogs; which made the walk much more pleasant and the rain had even stopped.
Stores have started decorating for Christmas and I was getting rather nostalgic and not paying attention to what the dogs were doing at first. Kato prefers to do his poohs in a bush, he will look every where for the perfect bush and when he does he will back his butt into the bush, throw his leg up and over it so he gets right on top of it and do his pooh.
But we are downtown, there are no bushes, just a concrete sidewalk and I notice he is attempting to line his butt up with a power pole. I gave his leash a tug and told him he couldn’t pooh there, we’d find him a place.
I was quickly heading for a back alley when he put the brakes on, he obviously had to go and wasn’t waiting. He was lining up with a beautiful Christmas planter pot that had ivy spilling over the top and hanging down to the sidewalk. I thought he was going to go in the ivy, but no. He kept backing up and had to stand on his tippy toes but finally got his rear end resting on the edge of the planter pot and did his pooh; in the planter!!
My dog is flippin amazing!!! He is only one small step from being toilet trained!! And not a soul around to witness it and I’d left my camera in the truck. You’ll just have to trust me that he actually did do it. (Yes I picked it up with a baggie)
I just had to share that with you but promise no more pooh stories unless Laila happens to have something interesting in hers or Kato learns to flush.
