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.

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?

Way Too Funny - Walter The Farting Dog Toy

Who would think that such a thing even exists.

What an imagination to come up with the Walter Farting Dog story and farting plush toy. Enjoy!

Salmonella Eggs - So What - How About Dog Poo Bacteria

Four types of agar plates demonstrating differ...Image via WikipediaI don't want to minimize the importance of the threat of Salmonella contaminated eggs, FDA Urgent Egg Recall Due To Salmonella.

However, when put in perspective, dog doo is far more talented in transmitting a greater spectrum of disease causing bacteria, fecal coliform bacteria.
