I LOVE this thing! I bought it in 2006 and it still works perfectly.
As soon as I pick up the scooper, they climb the steps and stand and watch me from deck level.
See the looks on their faces? They seem to be interested, but they won't come down. Often, once I'm done, they'll come back down the steps . . . maybe to make sure I've done a thorough job? I don't know.
Walker doesn't watch me from the deck. He likes to follow me around the yard - at at distance.
He's my little pooper scooper patrol puppy!
