bad doggy

you know how it is ...

some dog from down the street comes over and shits in your yard. it's frustrating as all hell and sho'nuff do smell bad when you walk past it, but ... what ya gonna do but bend over and pick that crap up, eh?

- - -

and, it's not like you can really unload all that frustration out on the dog. i mean, the stupid thing is just a product of its environment, you dig? somebody didn't care enough about it in the beginning and certainly, nobody cares enough about it now.

You could, I suppose, randomly swat the shit out of the likely candidates in the neighborhood ... but, what good would that do? I mean, you'll never really know which of the dogs is throwin' down the turds ... it's sorta like tracking an IP address down from anonymous commenter. You can turn in the IP address and get the person listed on the owner's IP group (oh, say like comcast) as an abuser and let that whole thing develop as it will. But, where's the satisfaction in that? It's just not as viceral and wickedly pleasing a result as if you were able to rear back and just smack the shit out of the offending animal.

But that never did work either, did it? 'Cause the dog won't remember the shitting, it'll just remember the swatting ... and that don't solve much at all. The dog will just go off and shit somewhere else and avoid your arms reach, tail tucked between cowardly legs.

And so, we're left with the same ole' thing ... pickin' up somebody else's crap. Might as well do it with a smile, then. 'Cause it ain't no big thing in the balance of the universe, i says.

Well, practically speaking, just like you could fence your yard, you could disable the anonymous feature on your blog.
