In an article in the ColoradoBix Magazine, "Poop removal priority after snow", they captured the need to get all that dog poop off the backyard. I am with all of them on this. We have a golden retreiver and we are having the same problem. The snow keeps covering it all up and you can't pick it up.
I was able to get about half the yard picked up a week ago, but the rest of the yard was still covered in snow and I was unable to get there. I am just hoping we have a little break so that I can get the rest of it picked up.
It is going to be a crazy spring, but let me get the dog poop picked up.
