From gentle reminders to accusations of destroying civilization, signs are everywhere prompting people to clean up their dogs’ poops. (Sérieusement, Paris, France, écoutez-vous?)
There are the official signs that say dog defecation is a health hazard and a degradation. Let’s face it. Dog poop (like any other kind) is certainly unsightly.
Hotchkiss, CO, decided that pretty much everything is a threat to the town.
I also wish the city officials would use commas or dashes like the sign above, because if you are just glancing at this “Dog Waste” sign, the last line looks like Hotchkiss is claiming to be a disease ridden town.
It’s not like there aren’t disposal methods either — take, for instance, the environmentally friendly “Mutt Mitt.”
This is my all-time personal favorite dog poop sign. It has quite the clear and reasonable message from motel owners just on the outskirts of Boulder, Colorado.
The motel owners strategically placed signs on every bench outside each unit.
Alas, the efforts were all in vain. A St. Bernard (I saw him do the deed — but unfortunately, I didn’t have my iPhone handy) left a nugget in the golden leaves.
Brilliant post Steph! LOVED IT!! 😉
Thanks, Lottie! I discovered I had a enough poop sign photos to create a theme— hmmmm wonder what that says about me! Cheers 🙂
Anal maybe???? xxx
I’m realizing, Lottie, that I’m no better than Eddie and Kasey who are obsessed with poop and farts. I’ve also got another set of photos on poop related souvenirs (like “Elk Droppings” from Colorado — really chocolate covered peanuts) Thanks, my dear friend. xxxxx 🙂
Haha, love the hippie sign and also the motel owners’!
I like those, too. Why not have a little fun and creativity when making a no dog poop signs? Thanks for the comment. Cheers
Budapest is the dog poop-encrusted sidewalk capitol of the world…or maybe a close second to Nice, France.
Hmmm….any cool signs in Budapest, Julie? Or perhaps no signs? Yikes, poop encrusted..
I read an article in a British newspaper that alluded to the fact Paris and France lost the bid for the 2012 Olympics because of the soiled sidewalks. Perhaps the Olympic organizers visited Paris and Nice and it was poop overload.
Nope, no signs. They’ve started to make little fenced doggie walks with gravel and the city clean it up, but I still see lots of poop OUTSIDE of the fences. I’ve even tried walking down the middle of the street to avoid having to step gingerly all the time, but NOPE, poop is there, too! Then there are the voluminous quantities of human puke and piss, too. Makes for a challenging walk!
Dang! This description of Budapest makes Paris streets sound like spic and span hospital wings. Whoa.
Yes, yes. It’s quite impressive. My husband and I were going to start a blog of “vomit art of Budapest” with photos and dates/locations of this unique form of sidewalk art. The French have a lovely expression for vomit called “depot de gerbe” which means something like “wreath of remembrance” like the kind you put on someone’s grave or at a monument. Never could bring myself to take photos for a blog.
Haha, those motel owners have a good humor 😀
I hope they had some more funny signs in the kitchen?!
LOL…thank you for sharing! Have a wonderful weekend ahead, always~ Cheers!! 😀
I want to put a sign up out the front of my place, irks me heaps when owners let their dogs do their thing in my garden. Yuck..
I don’t blame you, Leanne — it’s very inconsiderate, and geez — especially in your garden!
