Exeter Services - Make Your Mind Up!

Here at Dog  Fouling and Red Rubber Bands, we advocate compliance with rules and regulations. Therefore, it is always disappointing to be met with ambiguity and a veritable invitation to break a rule if, indeed the rule exists.
Exeter Services provides us with just such a conundrum. Below, you will see a "No Dogs" sign. This is attached to a fence behind a shrub with a recreation area behind it.
Yet when we look from another angle, we see, on that expanse of land, two dog waste bins (and a right nice pair they are, too!). The picture below is looking at the sign and the bins. How can it be compatible to give the instruction "No Dogs" and then provide the bins?
It is this very kind of confusion, which is causing our streets to flow and I urge Exeter Services to eliminate this ambiguity at once!
As an aside, I took a closer picture of these two little beauties. I apologise to the couple in the car just out of the picture. I wasn't photographing you and I hope you have suffered no lasting ill effects!

In Appreciation of Art

We publish a picture of this dog waste bin, situated on the sea front at Dymchurch.

The semi-abstract picture of the dog causes us to stand back in wonder!

Folkstone council, we salute you!

Coronation Street Joins the Campaign

I am an avid watcher of Coronation Street. Over the last 25 years, you could count on your fingers and toes the number of episodes I have missed (or, being Cornish, I certainly could!),
I remember a previous reference to "dog muck" when Kevin was talking to Rosie about moving to London. That was clearly the beginning of Corrie reflecting the reality of dog fouling on this long running, down to earth documentary.
Last night, they took that next step and reflected the posts on this blog. As you will be aware, we have frequently reported on overflowing bins and the option of delivering full bags to deserving recipients.
Therefore, I thank Eileen and Deirdre for this exchange. You can almost taste and smell the reality of this scene. Eccles is the small dog owned by Deirdre's family. The social message, of course, is that Deirdre cleans up!
Lastly, we credit this scene to Coronation Street and urge all our readers and followers to watch the series!

I Think The Message Here Is Clear!

I pointed out in my last post that I was a sociology student in the seventies. I also went to a few Punk Rock concerts. Looking at the lead singer in the video below, he might well have been there with me!
I rather feel that the name of the band is in somewhat poor taste and the language leaves a lot to be desired. That said, we applaud the message contained in this offering. It certainly had me pogoing!

Revolution, Dog Fouling and How Times Change

Now I am no stranger to political discussion. Indeed, I was a sociology student in the seventies. In those days, a discussion at a Labour Students' Group would have focused on revolution, overthrowing the system and having a sit in with a few drinks somewhere.
How times have changed! While we once had the stench of revolution in the air, the atmosphere at Hull University Labour Club is now rank with the poisonous atmosphere of dog fouling!
As the European elections loom, we can only wonder if UKIP might use some of the material on this site to point out the dangers of introducing foreign practices to the UK. That said, as we are completely apolitical at Dog Fouling and Red Rubber Bands, we will try not to care!
