A PoopAbout is a dog owner's term. It refers to the ritual that dogs must go on a "poopabout" every morning before their owner's head off to work. On a "poopabout," dogs trace their normal walking paths and poop from time to time, dropping fecal nuggets of canine information as they read their neigborhood P-Mail. PoopAbouts can be taken any time of day in any weather and will last anywhere from 10-minutes to 2-hours depending on the dog's bladder and intestinal capacities.
Before heading off to the cube farm today, I took the dog on a poopabout. It lasted a little longer than usual as he scarfed more than his fair share of chow last night.
