I'm upset!

I may be preaching to the converted but here goes - We left home on August 6th and today is the second time that I'm stepped into something left behind by a campers pet. I owned a dog for 16 years and I know that it's a lot of work to clean up after your pet. Our first night was in Minot, ND and what a slough that was. Fido's rib bones and poo were all over the place. My new truck was only one week old so guess who stepped in it and then into his new truck. Today while setting up camp in Medora, ND I did the same thing. If it happens again I'm going to get your addresses from the camp owners and mail you the package you left behind.

Put it in a paper bag, take it to their house, set it on fire, then ring the door bell.

We have 2 dogs and each lease has a poop bag on the hand loop. I don't know what's so hard about picking up after your dogs.

Some people you can't even embarass into cleaning up after their pets.

I know your upset..........it may not be the last people that rented that site. Many times, I see people going to an empty site and allowing their pets to do their thing without picking it up. Then someone like you or I set up camp at that site.

I've seen ignorant and lazy people (kids included) allowing there pets to do this. I've seen times where we've shown up at a site and the pet next door comes out of its camper and runs for our site to do their duty.

At times it may have been the last renter, more often then not its a passer by walking the dog or neighbors' dog.

Go to campgroundreviews.com and rate the campground. This is a pretty good source of information that another camper told us about. We have found that the reviews are pretty close to being right. I have nothing to do with this company or web site, other than using it and passing it on to others. It has kept us out of some bad campgrounds.

Don't blame you. I travel with a Standard Poodle and rolls of the doggie bags. Not good for people or other dogs!

I agree Rvparkreviews is the best source for the near truth on most Campgrounds.

Sounds like an extra fun Halloween prank.

I watch where my dog makes a deposit and dispatch it as needed. The key is watch where one steps, situational awareness includes where one's feet go.

Just something I learned in my misspent youth.

Tends to be a bit messy when they try to stomp out the flames.

Thanks for the tip on RVparkreviews. Wished we would have read it before we stayed in Minot.
