I wish there was a true harmless additive that we could give to the dogs that made their poop brightly colored so it would easy to find.

Pumpkin is good for this!
I just use a plastic newspaper bag covering my hand and pick poop up. We have a pooper scooper that looks like a rake, and while it may work well on grass, the tined part is too wide and our yard is not grass, but small stones. So the thing doesn't wrk. It's also difficult to transfer the poop into a bag. The tines are also too wide apart unless you can be sure you pick the poop up in a particular manner (so the poop would sit horizontally across the tines). If the tines were closer together, the handle were longer and the tined rake part smaller, it might work...
Or I wish there was a true harmless additive that we could give to the dogs that made their poop ... dog did what (had diarrhea or such). Besides think of how festive the backyard could look when the snow melts!

That is a really cool idea.
What about beets?

What about beets?

Too much like blood.

My understanding (I wouldn't touch a beet with a barge pole) is that beets turn urine red. In humans, at least.

I wouldn't presume to speak for anybody else but my experience has definitely been tinted poop of a color that looks similar to the schmear left behind on a linoleum floor when you first wipe up bloody puppy skitters.
Just thought I'd share.

Thank you! I shall add that to the lengthy list of reasons to continue not touching them with a barge pole.

It's a matter of taste, of course, but I find that not much beats cold beet borscht with sour cream on a hot, muggy summer day.

A good gazpacho.

You've mentioned that, and I've made a mental note to give it a try should the opportunity ever arise. Cold beet soup somehow doesn't seem quite as offensive as plain beets. I think much of my beet issue is textural. Also, few things are tastier than pickled HB eggs, either in dill pickle juice or in pickled beet juice. So it's not like I am thoroughly offended by every aspect of beets.
