No fouling...

Okay, so maybe I won't be posting about doggie toilets around the world.  But I think I have amassed enough obnoxious photos of signs about dog crap that I can post them in my blog.  Since I love the odd silly blog post, I figure it's time.  So with much fanfare, I give you signs against doggie dumpage.


Barcelona offers a graphic that everyone can understand.  And they thank us in Spanish.


Here's one from Puerto Rico...


The Scots don't like doggie doo...


They provide a bin.


And neither do people in my own neighborhood in Germany...


It's not cool in Italy, either.

Despite the signs, it's not uncommon to come across nasty piles of doo doo anyway.  I bet if I kept looking, I might find more examples of how uncouth it is to not clean up after your dog.  But a lot of people don't clean up after their dogs, anyway.

Notice how all the dogs are facing the same direction.  Some of the signs are really negative, while a couple take a more positive approach.  In Spain, they simply thank you for cleaning up your dog's shit.  In Germany, they plead about health and safety.  In Scotland, they are really stern and threaten a big fine.  In Italy, they quote the law.  In Puerto Rico, it looks like people ignore that the bin is really for dog crap.

Maybe if I collect enough pictures of signs, I can publish a book.  It worked for these ladies...


I actually own a copy of the book above.  I bought it last time we lived here and wish I'd brought it with me this time.  What can I say?  I am very easily entertained.
