As a person who gags about dog poop, here are my feelings. The second household should have cleaned the shoes, but since they didn't, suck it up and clean the shoes. Have the child help so they will watch where they step. By age 7 I watched out for dog poop as did my kids and sometimes just cleaning it will make them begin to watch out for it. If the shoes were just a cheap pair, I would throw them away, but I would mention to Dh to tell the ex to please return shoes and all belongings clean.There's another picture here to me, about a pet owner's irresponsibility in cleaning up after their dog. I own dogs and board dogs and keep them immaculant and there is no excuse for dog poop where a child could play or step in it.
