Sticky poo on my new shoes

A very kind person solved my tap problem by posting the missing part through my letterbox this morning. Thank you so much! It was particularly fortunate because I later stepped in dog poo and the hose made the cleaning up much easier than it would have otherwise been. It turns out the plumber did not install a non-standard tap. I’m just a moron 🙂

I’ve been wearing my new purple boots non-stop every day since I got them. Ben refused to let me wear them to bed though. Not fair! They have been supremely comfortable and still no blisters or anything. My only complaint is that they’re not dog-poo-proof. I stepped in a particularly sticky and fresh dog turd today and, as always with the bad ones, I smelt it before I saw it. The grooves are so deep on the bottom that I had to use Ben’s toothbrush to get rid of it all.


The next shot is *after* scraping off most of it with a stick (and before using Ben’s toothbrush).

  1. Rachel, honey, I LOVE reading about everything you post but I must request that you at least give me a head’s up of what images are coming if they contain poop. Reading about is fine but I can’t un-see the bottom of the boot picture. Even so, you always brighten my day and I especially loved that you used Ben”s toothbrush haha. : )

    1. Haha ok, I’ll remember that next time I post pics of poo. When I look at that photo I can almost smell it. Just be glad the smell isn’t published with the photo.

      1. “When I look at that photo I can almost smell it” I am so sorry to hear about those awesome boots! And I totally know wheat you mean about smelling it just by the picture :/ My neighbors hardly pick up after there dog and we live in a townhouse complex so I have stepped in a lot of dog poop. Ugh the smell! They need to have a better enforcement or a stricter punishment to get them motivated to clean up after there dog. worst part is the deep grooves and your forced to smell it while doing what you can to get it off. Hopefully 4 years later you have the smell out of your memory! That’s an idea, there! The offenders should have to smell it somehow/someway! That way they will have that reminder of the smell. Perhaps even signs posted saying if you don’t pick up after your dog violators will have their noses rubbed in it! Even reading that should be a pretty darn good deterrent, I would think anyway! The smell is horrible already anyways. Just the thought of having my nose rubbed in it is enough to keep me inline lol. Hope you have been doing well this entire time thank you for sharing! I stepped in dog poop today that’s what brought me here lol

        1. Thanks for stopping by! I am sorry to hear you also have become victim to the dreaded dog poo. Thankfully I haven’t done that for quite a while now. I’m sure it’ll happen again at some point. Oh joy!

      2. Hi again, your very welcome for me stopping by. I am totally glad I did. I have read several writes of yours in this blog. I love them! I could comment something on everything I read. But I don’t want to be rude or anything. Thank you for the sincerity about me landing in the dreaded dog poo! Last summer it was so bad, several, several times. Even looking out for it and I still manage to step in it. It was even partially tracked in my house twice! So I apologize if in my previous reply was a bit to much. It’s been a horrible ongoing problem for the 6 years around here :/ Though on the flip side it’s awesome to hear it’s been a while since it’s happened to you! “I’m sure it’ll happen again at some point. Oh joy!” I will keep positive thoughts for the both us that it wont happen again. Or at least not while were wearing cute and awesome shoes/boots! lol.
        If you don’t mind me asking what are the fines/penalty’s there for the people not picking up after there dog? I think here it’s now up to $1,000.00. But most people if they are even caught pretty much just get a slap on the wrist and “No, bad owner” type of thing. I know for sure most people would rather just take the 10 secs to pick up the poo and throw it away than having to pay any kind of money. But it’s like what to do with the others that aren’t deterred by a “fine”?

  2. I hope Ben cleans his toothbrush well or else he’ll have dog’s turd breath. My sympathies to you for treading in dog’s turd. Just awful! And in your lovely new shoes too!
