    Bacon...it makes everything better.

    Even dog turds.

    I got so sick and tired of cleaning up the dog turds in the yard that I pour bacon fat on them. And enjoy the amusing irony of watching the same dogs that mined the yard eating their own turds.

    Not to change the subject too much.

    Did anyone see the TV commercial for the bacon sundae at Dennys?

    I like dogs, an hour or two at a time. But I likely will go to my grave never understanding why anyone would own a dog.

    Yes DJM, dogs are a huge pain in the ass. So are spouses and kids and jobs and most of the other things that make life worth living. Because they're worth the trouble.

    They are likely to eat it anyway but that is about the best damn excuse for cooking bacon I've come across yet!

    I've never had a dog which ate it's own excrement but have seen many who like to brunch on fresh cow poop.

    Good one, "Shelly."

    Using words like "excrement" and "brunch" thoroughly conceals the fact that you're a teenage boy otherwise known as Trappy 12.

    Almost all dogs like to eat horse poop. I can verify it with video if you like. It's especially fun to watch while you're eating popcorn.

    Oh yeah, for sure mention it at the next HOA meeting. Some people will crack up and others will get a horrified look (especially the negligent dog owners). The neighbor lady to me, who has no dog but has dog mines everywhere too, got a shocked look on her face, then cracked up. BTW, this works best in summer, because in winter the fat solidifies too quick. The summer sun keeps it soft and fragrant.

    And, I'm not wasting bacon fat. We have a surplus of it. Hamburger fat works too, but not as well as bacon fat.

    And speaking of dogs eating horse apples, they also sneak Tootsie-Rolls from the cat's litter box.

    How do you keep a dog from eating cat poop? Let me tell you, it smells alot worse when the dog throws it up than what it smells like when the cat dumps it in your yard! (If that's possible) I have a crazy cat lady on the street behind me. After they've eaten what she puts out for them, they show up in my yard. My dog thinks it's the takeout buffet!

    Yvonne...get a motion activated sprinkler. Also, you can plant garlic, lavender, peppermint, lemon grass, thyme, or rue. Cats apparently don't like the smell of those. Peppermint will take over, from my experience, so don't plant it where it will spread if it's going to annoy you.

    My dad used to always say that eating horse apples made the dog's breath smell good and that is why they ate them. Of course I was just a kid then and prone to believe whatever he said.

    HaHa Devi ~~ Maybe if the dog ate the herbs, after the cat poop, that would help! ;)
