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.
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.
