Last discussion on 'pick up after your dog'

Here is the last photo from Courtown, Ireland where it seems they have major problems getting people to pick up after their dogs. If you’ve missed the discussions on the other signs, searching for ‘courtown’ should bring them up. It looks like a boxer dog to me. The sleeves are getting rolled up and the hair is tied up out of the way. This character means business I think. My mother was always telling me to roll my sleeves up when I went to wash my hands or wash the dishes. Even now, I still push my sleeves up before tackling ‘wet’ jobs.

You can tell us if the signs help. Are the towns clean? The dirtiest city concerning dog poop I've ever seen is Strasbourg, France.

@maluse My area of Paris was foul when I lived there. People took their enormous dogs out late at night and left huge piles of poop everywhere.

The Irish towns seemed pretty clean to me. Areas of France were certainly fouled in many places.

@xFiacre We didn't go to Paris this time around but it didn't seem too bad in 2015.

There was certainly a creative person working on the signs that day.

It's clear to me that this sign is a caricature of the famous "We Can Do It" poster of the US wartime propaganda. If you never see it, here it is.

I thought it looked familiar but when I checked my own photo the head scarf looked a bit different to what I was expecting. And that's why - because I was thinking of the US poster. Thanks for putting it up.

@MALUSE It's almost exact isn't it? Just swapped the heads.

@MALUSE I have seen the poster so many times in the United States, I immediately noticed it was copied from this one.

In some countries people can be fined for not picking up their dog's poop.

@JudyEv Here those sign doesn't work with the owners. Unless the dogs pick up themselves

@peachpurple Are people supposed to pick up after their dogs? And if so, is there a fine if they don't?

When I had a dog years ago no-one thought of picking up the poop, though I tried to make sure that my dog didn't do her business on the pavement etc. If I had a dog now I'd certainly pick it up.

You would have been laughed at, picking up poop years ago. It is pretty much accepted in Australia now and you don't see much poop around at all.

Reminds me exactly what i also used to do before dish washing. Sometimes what we were taught never goes out of our minds. I still push or fold my sleeves to date

So I'm not the only one who does this. I hate seeing sleeves dangling in the washing up water.

I am totally disgusted by the number of people who don't clean up after their dogs.....but then when I walk the trails they are littered with poop left by coyotes....

And our paddocks are littered with kangaroo poo. There is little chance of dodging it.

The cuffs can get very dirty if you don't push them up when working.

I hope it's not too much against MyLot etiquette resurrecting a post from a year ago, but I really like this poster. Courtown is my nearest beach (35 minutes drive away) and I've been there a couple of times in recent months and can say that I didn't notice much (or maybe even any) dog poo there. It's not generally a problem in Ireland but I remember when I first went to live in the Hague (Netherlands) in the 1970s it was almost impossible to walk down the road without stepping in it. I've been back there more recently and it seems people's habits have changed for the better!

There is nothing to say you can't go back to older posts. I'm always doing it. Ireland seemed pretty good as far as dog poo went. Courtown had four or five really clever signs regarding picking up after your dog. I did posts on several of them. Here's a photo of one of the other signs that were there.

Do people clean up after their dogs in Spain? We thought France was very clean although there are still many people smoking.

There seemed to be a lot of dogs there but we didn't see too many 'messes' so perhaps the signs are working.

I wish people in my town would pick up their dog mess more often. They go out in the dark to avoid being caught but I've also seen a few people who just don't care and who glare at me as I'm walking by as if to challenge me to say something about it.

I'm sure that happens here too but mostly I think people are much more conscious of the problem and more or less happy to go along with the solution.

when i had a dog I always cleaned up behind him, I do that with my grand-dogs now. Its amazing how many people pretend they don't know their dog just left a present on your lawn..

Speaking of dog's poop there's an ordinance being pass in one barangay of our city penalizing the owner of the dog that poop in the area. I think this will be a nice law when passed in the session of local lawmakers.
