Do Tell: Picking Up After Other Dogs?

While I walked across town to meet friends for brunch over the weekend, I witnessed a woman's dog do his business in front of me while she stopped and pretended not to notice . . . and then they just kept on walking! I was rather surprised because there were other people on the sidewalk yet no one said anything. If I had a bag in my purse, I would have stopped and handed her one . . . but I wasn't in the mood to get into an altercation on the street corner. And she looked like she couldn't be bothered with being responsible as she was clearly averting her eyes from the situation. I think not picking up after a dog makes all pet owners in the area look bad so, do tell, have you ever picked up after another pooch? How would you handle this situation?
