I dig a hole with the little shovel and bury it.

On other people's property?!

My guess: This is a dog of Size, a Weighty dog, a dog of such Proportion that she has trouble cleaning herself.

Or Teh Pfoley is trolling. I mean, really, who buries poop while walking their dog?

Please don't e-mail me privately.
I never walk her near anyone's property.

Yes, you do.
I walk her in the forest when in MA and in a field next to a bushy swamp land when on vacation in FL.

That property does not belong to you, it belongs to someone, most likely the state. Other people walk their animals there, and while burying poop is better than leaving it on the ground, you really ought to bag it and take it with you.
I am always considerate of my neighbors.

I think your definition of neighbors might be a little narrow in this circumstance.

Something like a "Poop Hound" (I think that's the name) would seem practical for that situation.

Thanks for the pointer. Again, this is one of those things that would work well on grass or pavement, but not on our stones. Thank goodness I can bend!
And as for carrying the poop, we tie the poop bags onto the leash after pickup until we find a handy trash bin.

It's common among hikers, and hiking books and information sheets for various public lands recommend it. However, taking three ginormous dumps on one walk is a little, uh, unusual. "Love: it makes you crap a lot."

Do you think s/he's hiking with the dog? S/he said "walk," which doesn't mean quite the same thing as "hike" in my world.

Four, if you count the pre-walk warm-up.
"Love: it makes you crap a lot."

You should totally pitch that to Hallmark.

Well, I'm not completely clear on the distinction between "walk" and "hike," to be honest. I think that if he's regularly walking the same damned dog on the same damned trail, though, it's pretty irresponsible not to pack it out, particularly if the dog always craps in the same areas and is always crapping like a horse.
That said, I'd bet that that's one fat freakin' dog (between pfoley's equation of food with love and the amount the dog craps), and if burying dog *** with all its pathogens and whatnot in a wild area is what it takes to get the dog off its lardass that may be what it takes.

Pfoley has said before that s/he subscribes to St. Cesar's 45 minute walk regimen.

Agreed. And, c'mon, if you're fit enough to exercise a Rottweiler, then you're fit enough to carry it's poop for half an hour. Even if it does crap like a horse.
That said, I'd bet that that's one fat freakin' dog (between pfoley's equation of food with love and the amount the dog craps),

And the limited exercise it receives.

For sure. And like I said, it's best to take it with you, but if you can't, burying it is better than leaving it on the surface. Lazy and kinda lame, in the circumstances, but better.

why not carry JUST a plastic bag?

Because I don't like picking up Rottweiler poops in my hand. She goes at least three times on her morning walk and they large.

You don't mean that literally, do you? I put my hand in the bag, pick up the poop, and then turn the bag inside out. No contact, no problem.
