Bubbling brown. A patchwork of yellow stains.
In the background, mother reaches down. Blue baseball capped little boy gazes back.
Would she scrape this sodden mass up?
Loose Stool, Flies, and a Stroller.

|doug_c_rapp||04:04 pm - "The [Nasty Bacteria] Trail Has Led Straight to the Hunched-up Dog"|
In the mid-1990s, scientists perfected methods for tracking the origin of nasty bacteria in streams and seawater. From Clearwater, Fla., to Arlington, Va., to Boise the trail has led straight to the hunched-up dog — and to owners who don't pick up after their pets.
At some beaches, dogs help raise bacteria levels so high that visitors must stay out of the water. Goaded by such studies, some cities have directed as much as $10,000 in the last few years to encourage dog owners to clean up after their pets. A few municipalities have started issuing citations to those who ignore pet clean-up ordinances.
Many dog lovers are in denial about their pooches' leavings. But researchers have named the idea that areas used by dogs pump more bacteria into waterways — the "Fido hypothesis...." (usatoday.com)
USA Today, another enemy of World of Dog Crap, is publishing pseudo-science and discrimination against dog crap.
Dog crap is completely natural and breaks down over time. The millions of gallons of human sewage that is released into waterways is the real cause of any "nasty bacteria".
Dogs are as natural as seagulls and an important link in the environment for biodiversity.
Facts are facts, and dogs and dog crap have been around since the dingo of Australia, which the modern dog still resembles, somewhat.
This USA Today article is dog crap bashing and hate speech against dog crap.
Here is a better article:
"Humans and dogs enjoy a prehistoric relationship, a longstanding bond with its origins in a time when dogs as we know them evolved from wild animals into our domesticated companions...." (National Geographic, Search for the First Dog)
Thank you, National Geographic.

We treaded lightly. Paused. Listened.
There! A fly, buzzing gently in contentment.
We knew then. Dog crap was near.
Squinting our eyes we recognized a once proud Caninus Crappus — stamped. Its freedom to lay naturally where it falls — trampled upon.

We at World of Dog Crap believe this drawing to be an abuse of dog crap. To encourage readers of this drawing to think of a husband picking up dog crap for his wife as a loving act is absolutely unacceptable.
We are having some difficulty in discovering the author of this cartoon but we will leave it to our devoted readers to launch an investigation on this pressing matter of dog crap abuse.

Ambitious. Directive. Leading.
This stretched stinker we found creeping through the cool grass. Where was it headed we asked ourselves?... To the parking meter to pay a fine for its presence?
We observed it from a distance, appreciating its striving and enduring.
Scooting and Staining.

Inconsiderate. Disrespectful. The "Sprinkles Brigade" in New York City violates the natural state of dog crap by adorning it with candy sprinkles, which they call "art".
Unmerciful in their quest to disturb the restful repose of dog crap, these hooligans deface our national treasures while wearing dog masks to protect their true identities.
...Another enemy of World of Dog Crap.

"My Shihtzu has a habit of picking her poop up off her poopy pad and carrying it somewhere else in the house and hiding it. The vet told me this is some sort of protective maternal thing that spayed female dogs do. But the real problem is my toddler now copies the pooch and is carrying his turds in his mouth and hiding them under his bed. Should I be worried about this behavior, or do you think it's just a phase?" (Poopreport.com)
A good question.
