Some in New York Shocked There’s No ‘Poop Fairy’ in Empire State
New signs seen in New York State confirm "There Is No Poop Fairy."
If you own a dog, a poop fairy would be pretty cool! My least favorite part about being a dog owner is having to pick up my dog's smelly, sometimes slimy, poop. Adding even more insult, is sometimes my dog kicks dirt toward me as I'm picking up after her!
If you're wondering, I quickly learned to wait for my dog to do her kicks before bending down to clean up her mess. Fool me once!
While picking up after my pet isn't enjoyable, I always do it. Out of respect for my neighbors, because stepping into poop is far worse than cleaning up it.
