Follow-Up Friday – July 12, 2013

I hope you all had a safe and happy 4th of July.

Thank you for joining me for Follow-Up Friday, the blog hop that let’s you wrap up your week and leads you right into the weekend.

I’m super sorry, but I forgot to give you today’s co-hostess in yesterday’s post. I’m so excited to have my friend Donna from Donna and the Dogs.  She’s currently fur mom to Miss Meadow, Miss Leah and Master Toby, (a dog who looks amazingly like Sampson) and two cats.

Donna is an up and coming writer who I look up to and admire.  She’s an amazing writer and I cannot wait to see her work in print, which I’m hoping will be very soon.

Please welcome my friend Donna.

You Make Me Laugh

Kim said, “Jodi, your girl Delilah makes me laugh too–What a rare treasure she is!!”

She is that Kim, I’m grateful every day for her.

JoAnn asked, “Wiggle wiggle wiggle…that makes me laugh and smile too. does she grunt when she does it?”

Nope, she just wiggles.

We’ve all got some awesome dogs that know how to get our attention, don’t we?

Seven Ways to Pissed Off

This one from MR. Taleteller was catchy, “Carrie needs to take a pic of the signs at our park. It shows a dog pooping. Hello! that’s more disturbing then stepping in poop itself. Poop pollutes, poop pollutes! It also makes good compost.”

A dog pooping?   WTF is wrong with people?  Can’t you make a point without being vulgar?  If people were having sex in the park would you have a picture of that?

Sherri asked, “Also – do you know who the James family is? What’s their vendetta against dogs? They have pet squirrels or something?”

I have no clue, but I googled their name and there are two of them in the immediate area, I might just call the town and ask. :-)

SlimDoggy asked, “Why don’t they have to clean up after their horses?”

Good question Slim.  There are also wild animals which I’d bet put the public at far more health risks than dogs.

Sugar asked, “BTW how do you spit nails?”

BOL Sugar, it’s just a human expression for being very angry.

2 Brown Dawgs asked, “I wonder how much all of that cost?”

Good question, before they added the James family sign I was about to call the town and ask them how much that cost the taxpayers.

BTW why doesn’t the training farm want you to pick up the dog’s poop?

Molly the Wally said, “It ain’t the dogs here it the French people who think it is OK to let their kids do their stuff in the park when there are several toilets.”

Are you saying that people poop in your park?

Maggie said,”Okay, so… the number of phrases you used to say “poop” really has me laughing!”

I love potty humor, I was giggling typing that.  I think I might have to send out the poopie list. 😉

Dee said, “How would you all like living next door to a police officer (that lets his dog run loose despite the county-wide-leash law) whose dog thinks YOUR little 6-acre space in this world is HER bathroom?”

Um no, a really big pet peeve of mine is police officers who feel they are above the law.

For me there were just too many signs and one poop station in the beginning of the park is just not enough.  Plus I’d really like them to address the other issues of kids, litter, broken glass and fire.

And really, get your ass out into the park and ticket the people who aren’t picking up after their dogs and for Pete sake, know what is going on before you put up seven signs!


I love this photo.

Jen had a great caption, “Really, my only other “cigar caption” would be Will Smith’s “Welcome to Earth” from Independence Day.”

That was a good one too Jen, I had one other one I was thinking, but I figured I was dating myself.

Edith, get me a beer!

Edith, get me a beer!


Sampson and Delilah

Oh yes, the dog in the photo looked eerily like Delilah.  Thankfully she hasn’t done this yet, but I am waiting. LOL

Houndstooth said, “You know what I say, “Well behaved dogs don’t make for good blogs!””

Exactly, which is why I rarely write about Sampson!

Thank you all for your condolences about my classmate, I think a lot of my sadness is the fact that I didn’t get to know her as well as I would have liked.

Life is short, don’t live with regrets.

Thanks to my pal Donna, this is the Follow-Up Friday Blog hop hosted by Donna and the Dogs and Heart Like a Dog.

    Yep we are saying they poop in the park and if you have ever had a dog roll in human poop and have to clean it up you’d know how maddening it is. So there you go people can be the worse. Have a fabulous Friday.
    Best wishes Molly

    You know there are two good points in there – why don’t they have to clean up horse poop as that is a major pile and many dogs want to eat it – hate horse poop and maybe signs for littering and no sex in the park too! Very frustrating topic, dog poop is! Happy Follow Up Friday!

    Love yr fuf…i love talking about poop. there was a guy at work who hated certain words poopie was one of them so each time i came out of the bathroom i made sure i said ” steve…i made a naughty poopie” had to add naughty to it to make it sound better.che would die and i would laugh. have a great poopie free weekend.

    We don’t have much experience with the poopie thing cause I don’t get to take our dogs out much for various reasons. Teddy with the bad leg can’t go for long walks and Scout leaves potty mail every half step. I have taken Phe and Ash to our city park a few times but everyone seems to pick up the dog poop there. We have a different problem. Everyone walks their dogs in our subdivision and for some reason they think it is okay to let their dogs poop in our front yard and not clean it up. Disgusting! Anyway, have a great weekend!

      When you see a dog leave a deposit on your lawn and you know where the dog lives, do like my Mom did several years ago — scoop the poop and then, while the offending dog’s family is gone, drop the poop right in front of their main entranceway. Almost guaranteed they won’t see it until it’s too late! And you’ll get the last laugh.

    Hi Y’all!

    Poop in the park is nothing to be laughed about people. If you are a dog and accidently step in somebody’s old “deposit”…we dogs cannot remove our shoes…we have a serious problem.

    If your Human doesn’t make sure you’ve taken care of business before taking you to the park or clean up after you if you have an excitement accident, sooner of later the dog haters, who outnumber those of you who love us, I’m sure, will not let us walk there even on a leash.

    Y’all come by now,

    I don’t think it is possible to write a dog blog without bringing up the topic of poop. It’s just part of life with dogs.

  7. says

    OMG, I can’t believe Molly’s comment. That is just… beyond imagination.

    It’s bad enough when folks don’t pick up after their dogs, but… but…. I’m at a loss for words. People!

    Since I’m pretty new to your blog, I enjoyed your recap of the different posts, and people’s comments on them. It helped me get up to speed! I totally agree with SlimDoggy….why don’t people have to clean up after their horses? And your response to Mr. Taleteller’s comment about the vulgar photo cracked me up! I joined in on your hop for the first time too….thanks for having me!

  9. says

    Thanks for the warm welcome Jodi! Glad to be onboard. :-)
    Also, I wanted to mention I love how you do your follow ups-by adding in many of your reader’s comments. It is unique and a fun way to see what others have to say!

  10. Sue says

    Great follow up today, Jodi! Just now getting finished with my reading for today. It’s been a busy day. I like Donna’s style too! You gals keep me entertained with bear visit stories and poop-in-the-park stories. :-)

    Thank you, thank you, thank you for linking to my post. I would have come by last night to thank you, but, well the power outage put me behind.

    Excellent FUF. As for the training farm, what they said was that it made more needless work for the farm staff. Our choices are: leave it, take it home, bury it. I think they figure that since there are acres of fields and not that many dogs per acre, it is just as good to leave it. Some people compost dog waste so maybe they feel it adds to the habitat. But I really didn’t question it. It is their place and the acres the dogs use are just left natural and not farmed.
