Dogpoopfilter: what to do with dogpoop on a lawn that gets no sun? Now with Mea Culpa inside!

Mea Culpa: we should be picking up the poop every time. I know this. I do.
But: in the summer, the sun bathes my yard in warm, dogpoop drying, vitamin d producing goodness. Making it easy to pick them up in a batch every few days. But in the (san francisco wet) winter, the sun misses my yard almost entirely. They stay wet and smeary for days on end.
This makes the onerous chore even worse; it should be obvious that we're already having trouble taking care of it in a timely fashion, and this is making it worse.
Inertia is a terrible thing, even worse may be that I'm looking for suggestions that will help me to perpetuate my family's inertia.
*side comment: nobody could have possibly prepared me for how great it is to have a dog! Found mine at Berkeley Humane and he's the coolest dog in the world (in case you were wondering where he was...)
