This is a truly wonderful invention(?). I am all for enterprise and money earning and, therefore, applaud any business venture. Just look at this amazing product. I am sure the manufacturers must have sold at least one. Follow these simple instructions:

1. Collect up your dog's waste as normal

2. Place the securely tied bag of dog waste
into your muksak, by flipping open the
easy-opening catch

3. Close the lid and secure the catch once more

While this might seem like a step forward, I, for one, will continue to use the spare area in my sandwich box. Why spend money when you don't have to?

Take the time to watch this video right through. I just love the comments that the male demonstrator and the camera woman make throughout this promotion video for Stool Tool!

"Beautiful", says the camera woman. "Just spear it", he replies, "even if its as big as a giant hot dog".

"This is real poop, not watered down", he continues, before hitting us with the best line yet, "there is residual poop in between our teeth".

The website is just as good - for only $6.95 you can pick up "soft, mushy or EVEN runny poop!" without "splitting open or smearing the poop".

The Stool Tool picks up ANY poop - big, little, hard or mushy. Even picks up poop that has been stepped on and smashed into the grass!
Remember Christmas is just around the corner - order yours today :-)

Nottinghamshire Police Tolerate No Messing

Richard Edwards is the Crime Correspondent for the Daily Telegraph. This newspaper is renowned for its right of centre politics. Richard's profile on the Daily telegraph website describes his activities as follows:

"As The Daily Telegraph's Crime Correspondent, Richard Edwards writes about the victims and perpetrators of crime, policing issues and the politics of Scotland Yard. In the past four years he has reported on the London bombings, the disappearance of Madeleine McCann and the G20 protests."

So, is Richard focused on burglary, robbery or even murder? No, not at all! Richard has gone directly to the heart of the criminal conduct, which is destroying our society.

Yes, you guessed it, Richard has lashed out at dog fouling!

As Richard reports:

"The area where the dog mess problem has been reported, Retford, records an average of more than 20 violent offences, burglaries and vehicle crimes every month. However in meetings with the police, the community has requested officers to make one of their top priorities the fouling issue.

Pc Steve Meredith said: “While dog fouling is not strictly a police matter, our role as a beat team is to tackle the concerns of local residents. If that means us working with partners to address a local issue for the benefit of my local community, I am happy to do it."

Well reported, Richard and well said Steve! Thank goodness a national broadsheet is now taking this seriously!

Richard's article can be read here: Police treat dog mess as crime priority.

This is followed up on the Nottinghamshire Police website as follows: Dog Owners Could End Up In Fine Mess.

I can only speak for myself but I feel safer and significantly reassured by these efforts.

News Shopper Strikes Again

The News Shopper hits the nail on the head again.

This time, it's all about Epping here.

This is worth reading for Ms Fiona Daniels' remarks about "this filthy, dangerous excrement".

I would really like to hear more from Ms Daniels as I would enjoy hearing about excrement, which is neither filthy nor dangerous. After all, even horse dung has its dangers.

Local Press Gets To The Heart of Issues, Which Matter!!!!!!!

The News Shopper is a well known local paper to those of us in and around the South London/North Kent areas.

For anyone, who doubts the authenticity of this post Vigo Village really exists. Information can be found here.

The News Shopper has really hit where it matters. All around this article are links to stories about violence and criminal activity. The headline grabber, however, is a story about how the local people took the subject that matters to the local police:

A police survey found dog fouling was an issue in the area and people wanted more dog bins in busy dog-walking areas

The installation of dog fouling bins is headline news in this community.

Never mind criminal damage, to heck with theft or burglary, let's get that excrement into those bins!

See the full story here.

Lessons From The USA

In the USA, they too are plagued by the rubber band menace.

Here in the UK we simply complain but Joel Waul of Lauderdale, Florida saw a beauty in the band, which we have missed. He embarked upon a project, which would make the most hardened postal worker shiver. He built the giant rubber band ball pictured above.

Many thanks to the Charleston Daily Mail for this report. It reminds me of what life is really all about.

As the article makes clear, he suffered injury and damage in his quest. His efforts have been rewarded by the ball being taken for display in a museum. What a man! He should be applauded by all of us and given a free life or, at very least, six years to make up for the time he has spent putting the bands together.

Read about his tremendous achievement here.

Fireworks and Dog Fouling

"What happens to the faeces collected in those red bins" you might well ask. The truth is that I don't actually know.

This is, however, fireworks season. I do not approve of mindless damage but some young people have shown clearly what happens to said faeces around November 5th.

I utterly condemn this behaviour!

Cash for crap

The streets of Taiwan must be pretty dirty for its government to announce a new cash-for-trash policy that will pay its citizens for collecting & bringing in dog poo. That, or the island nation has an obsession with dog fouling cleanliness.

Taiwan's Environmental Protection Bureau announced that it would give "100 Taiwan dollars ($3) for one kilogram (2lbs) of dog excrement collected".
The only problem I see is for owners of small dogs. My little Lakeland Terrier, for example, does tiny "rabbit dropping" poos. It would take me well over a month to collect enough of his dog poo to merit a trip to the weighing centre to collect my $3. There is no way I am going to hang onto his faeces until I have enough to haul it to a centre to collect my money.

Other people are more lucky !!

With Taiwan being a small island of only 245 miles long and having an estimated 180,000 stray dogs I can see some people making a mint from shit.

If I lived in Taiwan, I would definately do it. Could it work in your town ?
