10 Looks Dogs Give Us as They Watch Us Scoop Their Poop

Ever notice how dogs look at you when you clean up their business? These photos show it well.

Editor's note: In honor of National Scoop-the-Poop Week, we're re-running two of our favorite posts on the subject.

When I moved to San Francisco, I applied for a job walking dogs. During the interview, the woman asked me, "Are you all right with picking up poop?"

"Picking up poop?" I said, leaning back and throwing an arm over the back of my chair, "I am all about picking up poop. I have three kid siblings. Dog poop, cat poop, baby poop -- you got poop, I'll scoop it." I was hired even though I had no prior professional dog walking experience.

So yeah, poop was a part of my life. I picked up poop, I threw away poop, I analyzed poop, I even wrote about poop. (I see things haven't changed much.)

One thing I always noticed about poop scooping is the way the dogs would watch me. Some would stand, pulling on their leashes. Others would sit patiently. And others would eye me warily. If aliens landed on our planet, they would wonder who these four-legged gods are with servants in tow toting (compostable!) bags of poop. The gods -- er, dogs -- in these funny pictures demonstrate what I mean.
