Passive Aggressive Piles of Dog Poop

Before we had kids, we had dogs. Oh sure, I didn’t birth them from my womb, but they were our “babies” nonetheless. We cuddled and coddled them, talked to and slept with them. We celebrated their birthdays.

It was a good life.

I’m not saying it’s a bad life for them now. I mean, the poor souls are still fed 2x a day, get to sleep on couches, and are loved on… though mostly by children who have a strange way of showing their love for dogs.

But, you know, it’s not what it used to be. They know it. We know it. They know we know it. 

And so after every time we clean their giant mounds of dog poop from the backyard – so that our kids can run through it without tracking filth back through the house or, you know, try to eat it- they choose a very special place to do their business.


I am certain, 100%, that this is their quiet, canine way of giving us the finger.

  1. My dog pees on the bottom of my kid’s slide. Every. Single. Day. It think it’s his way of giving me the middle finger.

  2. Lol!!! I thought it was just me who believed my dogs doing this is a passive aggressive payback because they know they aren’t #1 anymore. The dog who was the “baby” before our babies came stands and pees on the kids’ slide while he stares me down through the back door, and there is always a pile of poop near the bottom of the slide and by the ladder.

  3. LOL That’s freaking funny.

    On a different note, I was just thinking about passive aggressive behavior today. But it was husband/wife related, not pets, although it probably applies with pet babies too. I was holding Bryce and saying in my best baby voice, “Bryson, daddy has no idea what he’s doing does he? Noah’s going to make a HUUUUGE mess isn’t he?”

    Kind of a bitch move, but whatever. 🙂

  4. It’s all in the technique 😉 my dog has been around as long as my oldest son and she is only aloud to poop in gravel…he is only aloud to poop in the toilet. It’s just how it be…they both sleep in my bed too much though
