    What is more annoying?

    When someone takes the time to pick up after their dog, then leaves the bag or when someone doesn't pick up after their dog?

    I find it really annoying if they leave the bag as well as the contents.  At least the latter is biodegradable but the former is not.  Really annoying!!!!

    I think both are equally annoying. Even though they may have bagged it, they should take it home and throw it in their own trash.

    Even more annoying is the person that didn't train their dog to go in their own yard.

    Hmm...If they do not pick up after the dog, and I do not step in it, it fertilizes the lawn.  If they leave the bag then I can get two rakes and pick up the bag to throw it away.

    In the area I live in there are trees along the roads. When I used to take our dog for walks - a collie named Max - I got him to do his business by the tree roots. That way nobody stepped on it and the tree was given some free fertilisation treatment.
    There are some sloppy dog owners around here. I found a small pile on the step - just inside our gateway - before I stepped down onto the pavement. Others just let their pooches s**t anywhere and you have to watch where you walk.
    Nobody would challenge them,especially with a 'Staffy'. You'd have to catch the animals at it before you could let pop at the owners.

    Those who do not clean up after their dog should not have one. 

    I walk every single morning, and I greet many dog walkers. Most of them clean up after their dog, and they do not leave the bag.  However, there are one or two who do not. 

    I circle a church parking lot with woods on its left behind a metal rail.  Each day I notice, along the grass, someone has left their dog remains.  It really annoys me because I walk just as it is getting daylight.  It's obvious to me that this person deliberately walks his/her dog in the dark so as not to be noticed.  Right there, it tells me the person KNOWS he/she is being inconsiderate.  It's just plain wrong.

    Anyone who has stepped in dog dirt knows how aggravating it can be to clean it up off your shoes/sneakers - not to mention the terrible odor.  Years ago my husband and I owned a new red oldsmobile that we loved.  Someone had let their dog leave a huge pile in the road.  When I got home, all the tires, and around the rim of the car were covered with this mushy brown mess.  I was furious. 

    I've always considered that incident an analogy which is this:  The reason the world is in such bad shape is because good people end up having to clean up the messes of self-centered, lazy, inconsiderate people.

    To answer your question, it is more annoying when someone does not take the time to pick up after their dog.  Blessings, Sparklea

      So true about  good people cleaning up the mess.   I can't stand the bags that get left at the park.  I bury when possible, pick up if I can't.  But never leave a bag anywhere,but the trash can.
