It would also be nice to have pics of the camper who does not pick up after his dog.

Way back in the day when DW, the kids and I first started tent camping, we had a favorite spot on one of the local creeks. At the end of our stay we always restocked the firewood pile, and took out way more trash than we took in. Nothing went in the fire that wasn't paper based. Still do it that way today. I am a smoker, (yeah, Booo), but I try my best not to leave my buts behind! (snicker) . They get fieldstripped ang go in a pocket, can, or ashtray.

Clean up your butts

Ok, so I just watched a video on how to field strip a cigarette, since I had no idea what that meant (I don't smoke nor have I been in the military). My question is why is process done? Why not just throw the whole butt away?

I think the idea is to minimize the amount of trash you have to haul out, like if a trash container is not available and you have to keep it in a pocket or something. Shouldn't be an issue in a campground, but maybe if you are on a hike or bike ride.

After years in the Army and as a non-smoker I got tired of picking up cigarette butts. On a weekly basis (sometime more often) , we would do a "police call" where a group of soldiers would line up at pick up trash. The military uniforms have large cargo pockets so they made great temporary trash cans until you could find a place to dump your collection. I still have a habit of stuffing trash in my pockets when I'm not near a trash can. Field stripping was also a way to make sure your cigarette was out before it went into the trash.

Overall I have been fairly lucky and not had to many messy messy campsites. I understand that a piece of trash gets accidently dropped or blown away. But smokers in general are the messiest breed on earth! They take off the cellophane and toss it aside. The pollute the air I breath (DW gets severe asthma attaches from cig smoke). They throw their butts onto the ground or where ever. My FI was banned from smoking at our old house, as he would toss his trash and butts into the yard. The final straw was when he set down a freshly lite cig on the edge of the brand new deck and burn part of it. That was it. Period no smoking in my yard, and it does not matter who you are.

The boy scout outdoor code should apply to all. “As an American, I will do my best to - Be clean in my outdoor manners. Be careful with fire. Be considerate in the outdoors. Be conservation minded. “

I have a lab too and she is exact same way. I have drilled the command LEAVE IT into her head. Thankfully she doesn't try to eat them anymore

I hate when people litter, how hard is it to keep your small area clean o.O

"The toxic level of nicotine in dogs is 5 milligrams of nicotine per pound of body weight. The butt of a cigarette can contain from 4 to 8 milligrams depending on the length of the butt and the content of the original cigarette."

Found that on critters360.com..

Had a buddy whose dog ate the filters off a brand new pack of my Marlboros (all of them) when I smoked in HS. I'm not sure how much of the tobacco he actually got, but he lived a long and healthy life after that (despite my best efforts , but it wasn't his fault, I left them on the ground next to my chair and he sneaked off with them...).

My dog knows the "LEAVE IT" command as well, not only for various trash or other "smell goods" on the trail, but for holes and whatever else he's not supposed to be getting his nose into...
