Grateful For Longer Days - To See Doo

I'm grateful for the recent epic Winter Solstice, and for it signaling the coming of longer days and daylight:



. . . because it'll allow me to see what I've not been able to see during the very long and dark nights leading up to this Winter Solstice:

Ensure Holiday Pet Safety

Since it's the holiday season, I'm making it a point to share something beyond this blog's doo-centric focus.

Don’t let a pet disaster turn both your and your pets’ Holiday “Ho-Ho-Ho!” into a Holiday “Oh No!

Pay attention to: pet treats, tinsel and ribbons, plants, poinsettias, mistletoe, holly, table scraps, and human treats.

Novy Koi Better Than Ambient Dog Poo

Koi Fish on Castro sidewalk - Jeremy Novy - San Francisco, CA 94114
Something different for a change of pace. Recently, in our new neighborhood park (next to the Twin Peaks Bar), I noticed these wonderful koi appearing on the ground. I've wondered who was responsible for them.

Today, while strolling into the Castro, I noticed some new koi fish on the sidewalk of the little triangular park near our house. See the picture I took.  This is such a fabulous distraction to all the dog doo that litters the sidewalks.

Many thanks to the artist, Jeremy Novy. Learn more about Jeremy in this SFGate article, S.F. artist Jeremy Novy thrives in outdoor gallery.

High Doo Haiku - Sick Humor

Some sick humor fun. Consider this part two of the previous post. I crafted this Haiku to go along with what I previously recounted.

I named this Haiku, "High Doo." Here goes:

Fresh dog doo on wall
Dog jumps high to leave wet doo
Human poo, or dog doo?

One More Clue - Is it human or dog poo?

Human poop on wall and ground at SF Muni Castro St Station, Castro - San Francisco CA 94114
The scoop about poop was mentioned in a previous post, There Are Folks More Obsessed About Dog Doo Than Me.

Well, now it's time to add another clue to the list.

If the poo is 'high,' it's probably human. I think the poo in the picture is human. Tip - look at the size of the bricks.

Would this bright idea for dog poop fly in SF?

I had to smile after reading this SFGate.com article, Dog poop has bright side: Powering Mass. park lamp.

Just drop your doo in the tank, crank it to mix, and voila, methane gas to power a park gaslamp.

The idea is quite ingenious. In San Francisco, and in my neighborhood, I suspect this could only fly in heavily dog trafficked areas, and where there's iron will by dog owners to contribute to the greater good. 

If we can't get dog doo littering dog owners to pick up, how can we expect them to contribute to a communal gas lamp?!

Talking about gas:  Fart Busters Dog Treats (4 oz)

Dog Poo Courtesy - Unexpectedly Refreshing

Considerate dog owner covers smeared dog doo with branch and leaves. Castro, San Francisco CA, 94114.
Though dog poo on the sidewalk isn't welcome, I have to say something nice about this encounter.

Looks like there was wet doo here, and the dog owner attempted to pick up the gloppy mess.  I appreciate the broken twigs and leaves warning to avoid stepping into the smear. 

I wish there were more considerate dog owners in the neighborhood.

I'll get you my pretty... and your little dog too - or doo you mean poo!?

Ecch! The last week or two has been the horror from little dog poo.

That's what made me think about putting a hex on owners of little dogs in the neighborhood. Remember the Wizard of Oz line?

Why Buy Poo - Just Take It For Free!

Poo sold here! (a sign). Castro, San Francisco CA, 94114
I was walking in the neighborhood and saw this sign in the store window!

Why would you want to buy poop, when there's plenty of dog poop on the sidewalks of our neighborhood!?

The sign promotes recycled and odorless paper products, made from elephant poo, that are sold by POOPOOPAPER.

One of their products:  Elephant Poo Poo Paper Journal - Bark Elephant

Hot Weather - Hot Dog Sh-t

Abundance of hot weather dog doo littering, Castro, San Francisco CA, 94114
Oh for heaven's sake dog owners!!! Just because it's hot weather this week in the San Francisco Bay Area, doesn't mean you can be lazy and leave hot dog doo everywhere you can.

The heat wave this week in San Francisco resulted in an extraordinary spike in small dog poo littering. Egads! It was so bad, I had to make this my second post today.

'nuff said

Pick Up Poop Like Repairing Golf Divots

Golf Green.Image via WikipediaI picked up playing golf last December.  I've learned that it's usual and customary practice to repair an extra divot on the golf green around the flagstick.  That's to say, when I hit onto the green, it's probable that I've created a divot (an indentation in the short grass of the green). So best practice is to repair my divot (so the grass heals faster), and find another divot to repair.

In summary, I repair "my" divot, and I also repair someone else's divot.

So, wouldn't it be great if all dog owners picked up their own dog poop, plus one extra poop?!

The Dog Poop Initiative

This is really great! This book is about turning one of the things I hate a lot, dog poop,  into something good.

I won't spill the beans here, but if you want to learn more about the moral of the story, find out more at The Dog Poop Initiative - About The Story.

What's amazing is how the moral of the story can be applied to real life, home, work, education, training situations and more!  For example, play this video, Grass Roots: Taking (The Dog Poop) Initiative at Cabot, Arkansas Magness Creek Elementary, to see how they're applying the principles from the story.

Responsible Dog Ownership Day - Yay

3 Month Old AKC German Shepherd PuppyImage via WikipediaWhat a pleasant surprise to learn that there's such a thing. The American Kennel Club (AKC) has held Responsible Dog Ownership Day (RDOD) events since 2005.

This year the AKC is holding its 1st virtual RDO days, 2010 AKC Responsible Dog Ownership Days - Join us in celebrating the first annual Virtual AKC RDO Days!

While checking out the RDOD website, I ran across this gem, AKC Responsible Dog Owner Pet Promise. To no one's surprise, it includes:
"As a dog owner: I promise I will pick-up and properly dispose of my dog’s waste."
Now how do we get irresponsible dog owners to jump on the RDO bandwagon?
