Your Dog. Your Poop

Bring it home with you, you donkey!!!

I was gonna do a shout out but what I want to say is just too long and nasty and the story about the guy who wrote about his farting is nothing compared to the lady on the LSE 8:13 train last night with a small, black, poodle-type dog.

I'm sorry I don't have a camera phone but just before Whitby, her dog, which had been sitting on the seat next to her, jumped down and proceeded to get into "the position". Then, in front of myself and the other 12 or so people on that level, her dog defecated. ON THE TRAIN. Did she not think to make it go outside of Union?

She was talking to the dog like an idiot. Praising it and calling it "baby". (roll eyes) She didn't even acknowledge how grossed out I was or even apologize. She took some tissue from her purse, picked it up and THREW IT in one of those side garbages near the seats meant for disabled people.

I couldn't take it anymore so I scolded her. Does she not carry poop bags? Does she realize that's shit? Dog shit with bacteria and that it smells? She said she didn't want to waste a poop bag. How the hell do you waste a poop bag? isn't that what it's for???!

This woman was arrogant and self-indulgent. I don't even know why her dog was on the train as it wasn't a service dog. She could see and hear just fine.

I can still see the outline from the poo on the floor in my head. Some people really think the world is only about them.

i don't think dogs are allowed period unless it's a special service dog. poodles aren't special service anything

I agree - how do you waste a poop bag???
By-law 02, section 3.1, "No person shall bring an animal on the transit system unless it is in an
enclosed container that must be secured and does not inconvenience
other passengers."

So, actually she wasn't allowed to bring it on.

Yesterday I saw someone travelling with a large dog (bigger than a boxer) without a crate. However, the dog was well-behaaved (didn't make a sound), and the owner made him stand up at stations so people could get by easily. I think most people wouldn't mind that, and the by-law is there to protect against nuisence animals... but letting your dog POOP!?!?!?!

Like I have *always* said. It's not the dog. It's the OWNER. Tom's story about the man and his boxer validate my point.

All I can think about is the people that sometimes sit on the floor when the train is full.....
