bags and scoops installed in Moscow parks

This is an old report from RT, and I can’t embed the video – so you’ll have to go to the link to view it – but it’s amusing nonetheless: “Clean a poop, save a child“.

When a dog’s got to do what a dog’s got to do, what do you do with a doggie doo?

It’s interesting to pick up on a couple of things… like the fact that Lyudmila here has been leaving Mika’s poo in the park for seven fricking years!  Mika is not a small dog.

“pick up, it’s normal!”

These poo bag pouches carry a brilliant message (unfortunately they’re only available at select stores in France)!

Ramasser, c’est normal! 

Pick up, it’s normalexactly!

It’s not a stretch to say that most people, certainly most who don’t have dogs, think that it’s ‘weird‘ or ‘gross‘ to be picking up poo, and it’s not a stretch to think that if you walk away from your* poo, many folks would ‘understand’. But as long as it’s socially accepted to feel this way, the problem has to persist.

And finesadmonishments and scolding don’t address this.

“Pick up, it’s normal” does.  

Leave it to our European friends at Le Chien du Citoyen to figure this out!  

Brilliant.

* If it’s ‘your’ dog, then it’s your poop!

Green Dog Walkers

Here’s an initiative that we also heard about on the BBC Scotland show ‘The Scoop on Poop‘ (audio available until 2/27/12) – the Green Dog Walkers project.

Green Dog Walkers is a friendly, non-confrontational way to change attitudes towards dog fouling. Green Dog Walkers are volunteers who have taken a pledge to always clean up after their dog, and carry extra dog waste bags so they can give a bag to anyone who finds themselves without one.

How do you become a Green Dog Walker?

  • You sign the Green Dog Walkers® Pledge
  • You get a Green Dog Walkers® Armband to wear when you’re out and about with little Frou-frou!

There’s a major publicity effort behind this initiative, so that the public is aware of what it means.

If you see someone wearing a Green Dog Walkers wrist/armband it means they have taken the pledge to:

  • always clean up after their dog
  • carry extra doggie bags
  • gladly give you a poop bag for your dog – just ask.

It’s an interesting idea. Don’t want people beating each other over dog poo. Instead, make it known that you’re a friendly Green Dog Walker, ready to lend a hand (or bag, as it were).

Dog Fouling And Red Rubber Bands

Looks like we’ve found the South Poop of England, too.

Check out the site: Dog Fouling and Red Rubber Bands.

There’s some explanation for the ‘Red Rubber Bands’ that makes sense to the British, but it doesn’t make any sense to me. Whatever…

Lots of good stuff there.

And, it seems like their speciality is… dog poo music!

There have been many songs published on this blog. Needless to say, they have varied in quality. Once in a while, a good song thrusts itself at us. I can truly say this of this rendition of “Poop my Shoe”. It almost had tears welling up in my eyes. I love the way it doesn’t focus just on dog faeces but covers a broad spectrum of animal deposits. I challenge you to listen without experiencing a wide range of emotional reactions.

We heard about Dog Fouling and Red Rubber Bands on the BBC Scotland show ‘The Scoop on Poop‘ (audio available until 2/27/12). Take a listen.

Est-ce que la crotte de chien fait de l’engrais?

Please, let the French explain it to you:

No, the dog poop is not fertilizer! For what has the slightest interest in the land, it should be composted.

The poop left on a green space has no benefit to the parks or gardens, on the contrary.  The urine burns the grass and dog droppings can remain for several weeks before disintegrating, which poses a real health problem. It contains germs, bacteria and parasites that are harmful to human health but also for all the dogs that shall put the nose to it.

The least we can say is that dog poop is not a decorative element that friends of the gardens enjoy, and what about its effect on children playing in the grass in the spring or summer?

It is also an issue of respect for the work of the gardener.  They do not like most that pedestrians have the dog poop underfoot.

That’s why even in green spaces, it is essential to pick up!
