Bag It and Bin It in Medway

Medway council has joined the video age, as have so many others, to combat dog fouling.

There's not a lot I can say about this. I am blown away by the assertion that "your dog can't do it but you can".

It's always interesting to see new techniques being developed. Here, we see an attempt to make the film look old. I have to ask "why"? What has the age of the film got to do with it? I also feel that a serious, veterinary issue has been ignored. If my dog made that kind of noise when defecating, I would seek urgent, medical assistance!

Please enjoy!

Anger Management

Yes, it makes us all angry. How do you manage your anger?

Well, this kindred spirit manages it by producing a cartoon video related to this most concerning of subjects.

Talking Dog Poo

If only dog poop could talk to us, just like in this video - just think of all the interesting things they could tell us.

Enjoy :-)

Dog Fouling - Exploding The Myths of Ancient Egypt!

The ancient Egyptians had some amazing views of the cosmos and creation in general. It appears that their priests were able to enter an alternative world. Indeed, this led to the compilation of the Book of the Dead. The negative confession from the Book of the Dead is even argued to be the prototype for the Ten Commandments - remember, the Israelites came out of Egypt!

As you can tell, I am fascinated by all of this. One of the most striking beliefs of the ancient Egyptians was that, which relates to the scarab (or dung) beetle. The scarab was linked to Khepri ("he who has come into being"), the god of the rising sun. The ancient Egyptians believed that the dung beetle was only male in gender and reproduced by depositing semen into a dung ball. The supposed self-creation of the beetle resembles that of Khepri, who creates himself out of nothing. Moreover, the dung ball rolled by a dung beetle resembles the sun. The ancient Egyptians believed that Khepri renewed the sun every day before rolling it above the horizon, then carried it through the other world after sunset, only to renew it, again, the next day.

How sad then that all this should be shattered by a single dung beetle in modern times. This allegedly strong and capable creature fails miserably to transport a lump of dog poo home.

What is the point of being a dung beetle if you can't transport dung? Frankly, if this beetle worked for me, it would get a written warning!

Do You Do The Lottery?

Can I suggest that you take your dog to Taiwan! It would appear that the streets of the capital, Taipei City, are awash. The government appears to be somewhat enlightened as it has opted for the "persuade" rather than "compel" option.

It's really simple. Bin that dog poo and get a free lottery ticket! I spend £1 per week (at least) on the lottery. Quite frankly, I am prepared to divert my toilet into the street if it means that, by clearing it up, I will save £52 (or more) per year. Imagine winning and being "flushed" with success!
