On average, a dog can release up to three-quarter pounds of feces a day (that is a serious amount of poo). What to do with all that poo? The North Central Texas Council of Governments is starting the “Doo The Right Thing” awareness campaign in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. They are advising dog owners to always carry bags with them and to pick up waste as soon as it is deployed and to flush it down your toilet at your convenience. Don’t worry, soft waste can be thrown away in the trash. The campaign’s aim is to prevent pounds of dog waste from leaking or washing into untreated creeks, rivers and lakes.
We know you’ve seen plenty of dogs “doo-ing” their thing, so we’re gonna save you the pretty picture.
