Condo Poopers Poop Out

Sorry to keep on the poop story, but here’s an update on the doggie DNA being dumped.

At the meeting last night the condo board decided that the doggy-doo DNA testing idea just didn’t smell quite right.  They decided to table the whole idea and come up with another idea that is “realistic and acceptable.”

Yeah – that’s what I said in the first place. Now, look for Butler Shaffer’s upcoming article on this topic and the enforcement of rights (to appear on I just finished reading the draft. The man is, well, The Man. Thanks to Iluvatar for the link.

UPDATE: Now look at this story about the Poop Nazis in the UK.

Dog mess sign

Pam Robson was accused by Sunderland Council wardens of failing to clean up after Derik, her Labrador, in a field in Houghton-le-Spring in January.

The council said the 60-year-old had picked up mess from a different dog.

…Mrs Robson, or Thurlow Way, Houghton-le-Spring, said she had been talking to her daughter on her mobile phone when her dog ran off and relieved itself.

After she cleared up she was approached by two men, one wearing a city council jerkin.

She said: “He said it was the wrong mess and that he was going to issue me with a fine for £50.

    After reading all these posts and that article from the Baltimore Sun, I see no one is able to make any suggestions whatsoever that are ‘acceptable and realistic”, with the notable exception that perhaps a rule of ‘no dogs allowed’ should prevail. This one from a commenter on that site which has me laughing….
    “There is a simple canine solution to this problem, no humans involved in any way. Call in McGruff the crime dog. As everyone knows all dogs love the smell of fresh poo and can quickly identify each other with a sniff or two. Send in McGruff and let him smell his way to an arrest.”

    I think the idea of DNA testing is totally off the wall, and further, asking other unit owners without pets to pay for anything whatsoever is downright dumb if not crooked as heck. And yet, I would love to see one intelligent idea presented on how to prevent these arrogant nincs who shove their dogs feces in our faces whether we like it or not. I have absolutely no right to take garbage and strew it around the neighborhood…and worse, have no right on god’s good earth to ask neighbors to clean up after me…or chip in with higher condo fees to cover me…such bs if ever….ergo with neighbors and their ‘darling’ dogs. They have no right to get money from me for THEIR problems which they and they alone have caused.

    Has it occurred to you that not everything needs a solution? And, to boot, that demanding solutions to problems that are simply natural, or frivolous like this one, asks-no begs-for some jackass to devise a ‘solution’ that is virtually guaranteed to involve some sort of violence, and like as not either fail to ‘solve’ the ‘problem’, or actually make it worse?

    I have an ‘acceptable and realistic’ solution to dog poop-don’t step in it.

    Perhaps if you see someone walking a dog, and not dealing with its debris, you might call the person on it-but that would involve direct human interaction.

    I wonder, do you think there needs be a ‘solution’ to the effluent of squirrels, how about birds(I want restitution for years of windshield cleaning!), leaves in autumn, squawkers in spring, who’s responsible for that cottonwood fluff,….you see my point?

    Not everything is a ‘problem’, and even if indecently placed dog doo really is one-how on Earth could it even bear thinking about in light of the truly tragic times in which we live?

    Mike, have some questions for you to answer. If you have a neighbor who keeps you up all night with loud music, fighting, motorbikes, whatever, are you willing to put up or shut up? I see that you are trivializing what you perceive as miniscule to the greater ‘problems’ that we face…no one can deny that tragic times exist. If you see a child that is abused and needs a good home, are you willing to let go of all those things that take up your regular day to take in this child, because ‘it is truly a tragic case’? See where I am coming from? We can always legitimize and trivialize perceived small stuff and compare to larger issues that you feel take precedence, but when it gets right down to it, I could name oodles of things that YOU SHOULD OR COULD BE DOING, but won’t, because it would interfere with what are those things you prefer to use your time for in your own personal life. You could be doing something other than being on the computer right now, like perhaps playing BIg Brother to some kid who is neglected or worse, abandoned by his family..don’t you think that is more important than you spending time on the computer? Guess what, I am not going to chastise you because you see tragedy all around you, but keep on living your life…and pls don’t you chastise me because I happen to believe that when folks allow matters like respect, concern and responsiblity for their own actions to go out the window, it opens the door for far worse behavior. IN short, I could sit here all day/night and ponder the ‘tragic’ stuff in our midst and going on around the world, or I could start with taking baby steps to make my little room in the world a better place to live. Next time you are at a ball game and some guy bloated out on beer opens his fly and pisses on your neck, I hope that you remember that he, like the crapping dog owner, just feels that they have a right to be relieved..comprende?

    It starts from the bottom up.

    A great society that is.

    And it does so by us all learning to behave and become right-minded.

    Right action is surprisingly easy to get – ask your heart.

    He has the answer…

    Though it is humorously deplorable, these would be private dog poop nazis are nothing compared to what I fear government human poop nazis would do if they could get away with it. They already judge and condemn people based on urine content. Just imagine what they could do with poop when they can determine what politically incorrect food people eat.
