Poo Wi-Fi

This is a great idea from the Mexican internet portal company - Terra - to encourage dog owners to pick up after their dog. If the owner scoops the poop then Terra will reward them with some free Wi-Fi time!!

The company is piloting the idea in ten parks in Mexico City and if it catches on it will roll out across the whole of Mexico.

When people throw away their bags of poop in a special box in the park, it calculates the weight and Terra gives everyone free minutes of Wi-Fi in the park. The greater the weight, the more minutes are added - and everyone can enjoy a poo-free park. In an age when people are probably more interested in staring at their smartphone than watching what their dog is doing, it's a smart idea!

How To Dispose Of Dog Mess In Hertfordshire

Simple - just empty the bag in front of a neighbour's alley!

The gentleman in this video has grasped the concept of "bag it" but the "bin it" part seems to have passed him by.

This all took place in 2009 but has only now been published to the world.

Next time you find faeces on your path just remember, it might not have been placed there by the dog!

Marriage and Smearing - How The Cult Continues!

Imagine you are proudly announcing your engagement when a dog fouling, smearing incident takes place directly behind you. Well, that's exactly what happens in this video. There is then the standard attempt to catch the perpetrator.

There has been a sudden explosion of smearing. I can only observe that it creates employment for dry cleaners and detergent sellers. A way around this is to smear yourself in faeces before walking your dog. It takes the sting out of the attack!

Civil Rights? Not If You're A Dog!

We thank for bringing this article to our attention.

Our regular readers and followers will be aware that DNA has long been suggested as a means of controlling dog fouling. The myth has now become a reality!

An "up market" apartment complex in Montgomery, Alabama has made it a condition of living in the complex that you allow your dog's DNA to be taken. While the civil rights aspect of the situation has been ignored, employment has been created. Poo Prints is the company, which managed the DNA. From faeces to financial success!

Whether we approve or not, the fouling issue has all but disappeared. It goes to show that enforcement with penalties can work. For my part, I would make a point by leaving human faeces at various locations. The results would be funny if nothing else! I must, however, stress that this should only be done by a disguised person in the dead of night!

Enjoy the video (sorry about the advert) and read the article here.

There's Nothing Like A Good Song

And this really is nothing like a good song! In attaching the "music" label to this post, I have really stretched the definition of the term.

We've heard some really good songs on this blog. I rather like Dog Shit Blues and also Pick Up The Dog Shit. While they really got me going, this song didn't!

That said, it is still art. All such efforts have their own artistic value. There is value in this song, you simply have to look hard for it!

With all that said, I welcome a1dalet to the fight. All members of the cause are valued members of our global operation!

Personal Attack

As I left my house yesterday, I found the following on my grass verge.

Goodness knows how big the dog is! I take this as a personal attack!

Plenty - Juan Sheet - Dog Mess Advert

The title says it all; Juan Sheet takes on dog mess!

I've watched this video and he does appear to say "mess", although why a dog would chose to defecate in its food bowl is beyond me. Perhaps it was making an observation about food quality!

While this advert further demonstrates how deeply dog fouling is now ingrained in our everyday culture, I somehow cannot imagine it appearing on TV with other adverts!

Neighbour Disputes, Smearing And International Perspectives

As well as establishing that history repeats itself, this blog also demonstrates that the same themes recur the world over as regards dog fouling.

We have seen neighbour disputes, we have seen smearing, we have seen faeces in the mailbox and we have seen the involvement of the law. Here, in Australia, they all blend together in this news report.

I can't really add much to this video. Once again, dog fouling goes international. Let's get posting it!

Flat Doors Dog Excrement Smear Pair Sought

We thank the BBC for this story. The smearing theme continues!

One of the men, who had a ginger beard, was carrying a black bag
It appears that two men, one pictured above, smeared dog faeces over two flat doors. The reason appears to be unknown. In a world of killing and violent crime, the BBC has found space for a dog faeces story. This will now be read the world over.

I must also congratulate the police on their insightful assessment of the offence as being "disgusting". Amen to that!

Dog Fouling And Youth Culture

We thank Jenny Mestas for the following offering on Youtube. Jenny has published two videos. Having looked at them, I very much get the impression that Jenny has found some video making software and decided to use it. I have to say, she has done a reasonable job. Her skills exceed mine!

That said, young people have many, varied ways to pass the time and be silly. The question, therefore, is "why dog excrement?"

I'm not sure I have a definitive answer other than to observe that dog fouling has clearly been inveigled into youth culture.

I say "yo, homie, bring it on, dude!"

London, Paris And Now....Berlin!

I must admit, I had never heard of Jared Hasselhoff. He is clearly not a man to mess with. As well as having a stage name of "Evil", he is also German celebrity boxing heavyweight champion.

Perhaps that is how he can feel safe in walking the streets of Berlin and challenging people to pick up dog faeces with their bare hands and then hold it in their T shirts! Why would anyone do this is a fair question. It appears the answer is to get a free ticket to a rock concert.

I know very little about music. I have been to Berlin just after the wall came down. It was a weird experience seeing the old East contrasting with the modern West. That said, I did not notice a dog fouling problem. Jared appears to have a different view of the world. Allegedly, he has OCD, yet that obviously does not relate to cleanliness!

I can't really say much more. This video is longer than usual but shows what some people will do for a free ticket and, if nothing else, gets dog fouling back onto the international stage!

The East European Smearing Theme Continues

Once again, we see a smearing incident in Eastern Europe. This time, a car gets it more than the dog owner. As is usual, the dog remains aloof from it all.

It looks like this took place on a warm, summer day. These two "babes" really would have been "hot". I'm just glad I didn't have to pick the item up or clean the car out. Imagine the stench!

If nothing else, I think the point was made.

Dog Fouling v The Philosophy of Karl Marx

Karl Marx featured on this site recently, see here and a while ago here.

This time, we are looking at Karl's assessment of history, a major aspect of his theory of historical materialism. Karl famously stated that "history is nothing but the activity of men in pursuit of their ends". This approach to history does not allow for any suggestion that "history repeats itself". History is not an independent force. It is a record of "men" (glad Karl appreciated the role of women!) acting in their own interests. This blog proves him wrong!

In January, I photographed an example of dog fouling in Cornwall. The post is here but I reproduce the relevant picture below. To the left of the shadow of my shoulder, you can see dog faeces.

This was in January. Some 6 months later, I have returned to the very same spot. Can history repeat itself? I leave you to judge:

Talk your way out of that one, Karl!

The Cult Of Smearing It Down The Offender Continues

Our regular readers will remember Super Vaclav, who led the way in smearing dog faeces down offenders. Nobody will ever match his style, especially the costume!

While we have established that dog fouling is cross class, cross racial and cross cultural there seems to be an Eastern European smearing theme evolving.

Just as with Super Vaclav, we didn't see for certain that he escaped, so this video leaves us wondering what the ultimate outcome was. Did the dog owner catch the smearer? We will never know but we can surmise that the most intelligent life form in the video is the bemused German Shepherd, which appears to wish to do no more than foul and go home.
