Dealing with dog poop is a serious issue. We recently met new gardening friends who like us had dogs. They made their own pooper scooper out of an old laundry detergent bottle. They just cut off the top and bam, a homemade scooper ready to go to town. And when it gets icky, throw it out (okay, um, recycle it?) and make a new one. Bu-bye poop.
