Why Should Dog Fouling Be Curbed?

I'm sure that our loyal followers and readers will already have an answer to this question. I could write a book on the need to combat this menace. I have also had time to ponder on this subject and realise that the proliferation of excrement can lead to a real breakdown in society.

There can be nothing more destructive than the creation of territory, which is fertile for the development of deviant sexual behaviour. It might be that you cannot imagine excrement and erotic behaviour in the same thought. Just as I was, you would be wrong.

This report in the Packet is a little old now. The very not funny aspect of this is that the individual concerned killed a cow by burning a shed down. For that alone he should burn forever.

Relevant to this blog is the urge he clearly feels to link excrement to sexual pleasure. It goes without saying, therefore, that perversion will increase exponentially to the amount of dog faeces on the streets, parks etc.

The Packet tells the story here, while the Mirror tells us the sentence (two years) here.

I hope your stomachs are strong enough to take this!

Quis Custodiet Ipsos Custodes?

A question often posed in a liberal democracy. Who will guard the guards themselves?

We admire and trust our police, I cannot praise them enough. That said, what happens when a police officer steps in dog excrement on duty?

I don't know how often this happens but remember, the officer could be about to enter your house to help you. Would you want him to trail faeces over your carpet? I think not!

Therefore, I think it wholly reasonable that the officer should enter a garden and clean his shoe off. I'm sure the owner would have consented and it would not have been reasonable to wake the owner to ask.

I would, however, like to know why the officer isn't wearing his hat!

Can You Identify This Individual?

Can you help to identify this individual?

Mike Hudston has videoed this person allowing his/her dog to foul the grass under Mike's bedroom window without clearing up!

Wiltshire is clearly blighted as we know everywhere else is. Mike has had enough (and has tweeted about this). We have had enough!

It's time to unite!

Mikes blog can be found here.

Together, we are powerful!

Blind Man Fined For Dog Mess He Couldn’t See

I must offer our thanks to the worldwide Twitter community for highlighting this event and also to The Sun for publishing it to the global community. Ian Bradwell has been blind since the age of 17. His guide dog fouled the park and he didn't see it (understandably!).

He was issued with a fixed penalty notice. Needless to say, this was withdrawn following appeal.

That said, it's good to see that the fight is on and nobody can assume themselves to be beyond punishment for this appalling crime.

I'm sure you've all heard about the man, who owns a rottweiler crossed with a "Lassie" type collie. It savages you then goes for help! Here we have another such advantage. A guide dog, as a result of its training, can foul a park or pavement and then ensure that you avoid the mess!

Peter Arronsen the media whore.

It isn't because we have 51 dedicated followers, or the fact that we have had nearly 19,000 visitors from over 120 different countries - it is because our fight against dog shit has finally been officially acknowledged by the British media.

Peter was recently called by BBC Radio Scotland and asked to take part in a half hour radio documentary called "The Scoop on Poop". Naturally he jumped at the chance and was interviewed by Sheena McDonald for the programme.

Peter can be heard briefly at the start of the programme (30 & 56secs) but his main interview can be heard in full from 21mins 57secs to 24mins 07secs. He even manages to get our favourite character, Super Václav, into the show!!

I appreciate there are some crazy and obviously disturbed people speaking on the same subject in the programme, but at least Peter's common sense approach shines through between their madness.

Well done Peter :-)

Hallelujah !!!!!

The US Government were in a pickle.

With an estimated 65,000 dogs in Anchorage, Alaska producing nearly 24 tons of dog waste everyday the beautiful waterways and streams of the area were becoming polluted with faecal debris to such a state that action had to be taken.

Cue another dog shit themed musical TV advert designed to persuade the Alaskans to scoop the poop. Forget Ska, reggae, hip hop & rock 'n' roll - gospel singing is where its at for the Alaskans.

It's A Fair Cop - On Both Sides!

Here we have a different take on a familiar theme.

Normally, we see the dog owner denying responsibility for dog fouling and stating that he/she would always clean up.

Here we have a situation, where the owner accepts that the dog has fouled the neighbour's lawn for years.

We also see dog excrement being dropped in a neighbour's garden but this time, it appears, with a degree of justification.

Lastly, we have the use of CCTV, a major theme on this blog.

So, as opposed to having CCTV to catch an inconsiderate owner, who allows the dog to foul the neighbour's land, we have CCTV capturing a frustrated neighbour returning excrement to a self confessed offender. An interesting variation on a theme.

I must say, I like the way the neighbour makes a trail of the dog mess along the path. He also cleans the shovel on the offending owner's grass in a way that is worthy of comment.

Next time, it's the letter box!

Removal of Dog Faeces - Fling It Away!

A minimal amount of research on the internet reveals that there is a commonly used, ingenious way of getting rid of dog faeces. It's really simple, throw them into the road or onto neighbouring property!

I really have to admire the gentleman in the first video. He allows the dog to defecate and then clears throwing the faeces into the road! Whether or not he hits the car is a matter of conjecture but I am impressed at the way he uses his bare hand and then cleans his hand on the grass, applying the "sniff test" to make sure that it is suitably clean. Who needs soap and water?

The second video shows a man, who clearly wishes to share everything with his neighbours. He doesn't even throw the faeces far enough away to avoid the smell, he simply litters the neighbour's garden - and why not?

If we follow this type of reasoning, we can do away with the need for refuse collection, we need simply toss all of our rubbish into neighbouring gardens and public areas. This should at least result in a reduction in council tax!

DoodyCalls - Where There's Muck, There's Brass

Or there certainly is in the US!

For just $15 per week per dog, DoodyCalls will come to your home, apartment, community, or place of business and eliminate any evidence that a canine used it as a personal bathroom. This is real evidence of how enterprise can be exploited in the land of opportunity!

Jacob D’Aniello, co-founder and chief executive officer of DoodyCalls is rolling in it (money, not faeces!). The company’s annual revenue for 2011 was $4.5 million, a big jump from 2009′s comparatively modest $2.9 million. (If you’re curious, that breaks down to approximately 6.6 million poops disposed of by DoodyCalls last year.) They currently have 55 franchises in 22 states, and there are plans to open as many as 250 locations in the next decade.

Now for me this raises a very interesting question. Here at Dog Fouling and Red Rubber Bands HQ, we totally oppose any breaking of the law. That said, if we all obeyed the law there would be a number of social issues to manage.

No burglars, no security industry; no dog fouling, no DoodyCalls. In similar vein, I like to think that I kept school caretakers in business! That said, thrusting a hot test tube under cold water and watching it crack was not funny!

Dog fouling has made this gentleman very rich. I wish him luck. He is managing the failure of the state to enforce the law. Clearing up now equals the creation of unemployment. Over here in the UK, we don't need to clear up to bring this about while we have the Coalition Government in office (joke, joke!).

Dog Fouling and Utter Stupidity - The Clarence Newbold Story

I have a great admiration for anyone, who has the time to put together a film such as the one featured below. The chap making the documentary appears to be called Pete, therefore, Pete, we salute you!

Dog fouling gets a very early mention but I urge you to watch the entire video. It's only 26 minutes long and will give you a renewed perspective on life.

I take my hat off to all involved in this production!

Sandwell Council - With Us All The Way!

As our regular followers will know, our blog is widely read and followed.

Could it be that Sandwell council in the West Midlands is hinting at support for us? I don't know but am touched that they have started to use the name of my fellow blogger in their new poster campaign.

We salute them!

Don't Blame It On The Sunshine, Don't Blame It On The Moonlight....Blame It On The Dog!

Once again we have to thank the News Shopper for bringing us a cracking story!

Andrew Scotter and Terry Liddle, pictured above, are fed up with daily deposits of urine and excrement being left in the lift in their block of flats in Eltham, South East London. There is a graphic picture of the issue below.

In keeping with the issues raised on this blog, they want CCTV to be installed so that the offender(s)can be captured. As we know, this would cost money and requires there to be evidence of an offence taking place. Greenwich Council has blamed the mess on a dog, but at a meeting last week, calls were made for forensic tests on the poo, which residents are confident will prove it is manmade. Personally, I can think of no better way to spend taxpayers' money.

At least Terry is unwilling to blame a dog. As he so succinctly and eloquently puts it: "If it's a dog it must have incredibly large bowels and a very large bladder, people go out for an evening, get bladdered and, when they get in the lift, deliberately or otherwise, lose control of their bodily functions and let fly."

Personally, I go with Terry's "let fly" theory. I wonder if this heralds a new campaign? "If the lift's where you let fly in, then get a bag and use the bin". Please feel free to suggest other slogans using the comments facility.

I will close with some wise words of graffiti, which I saw in a lift in the East End of London some 25 or so years ago:

Q "What is the difference between a toilet and a lift"?
A "You can't flush a lift"!

Dog Fouling and Violence!

Does dog fouling make you violent? I hope not but it clearly has an effect on the gentleman shown in this video.

Thankfully, he only hits the dog excrement.

It's lucky he and his friends hadn't been drinking!
