Keep emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
June 8th 06. Admitidley, honestly and truthfully i
haven't dropped a single hint of an update here since April... sorry!
Fellow supporters; bookmarkers of this site... the campaign continues.
Yesterday i had the pleasure to meet some of Lincolnshires finest who
their neck out to do something to care; or like myself attempt to help.
I was chosen to present my humble idea of a campaign in front of a panel
of judges including my new punk buddy Dr David Bellamy.
I am going to add my speech to this site soon (honest) for you to download,
adapt and laugh at.
Please continue to email your supportive / abusive
April 14th 06. I recently came across a similar campaign
from a San Francisco artist who follows the core values of
this site. madeyouthink.org
is not for the faint of heart. You should also drop by mandolux.com for
a change of desktop
wallpaper if that inspired you. Finally why not treat your
flatulence prone pooch to this...

Do you hate dog owners who don’t clean up after their pooch?
Are sick of dodging the poo on your streets?
Are you taking action?

February 15th 2006. The community web site cleanupafteryour.co.uk goes live. After
a few stickers and posters were scattered throughout the village

owners, litter louts and fly tippers aware of
the mess they are leaving behind in our village. After

national and global support.
- A horse can
produce nine tonnes of manure each year.
- Manure from
privately kept horses is classed as household waste.
from businesses (such as riding schools) is classed as industrial
owners have a responsibility to manage the manure that is a byproduct
of their industry.
- Manure should
be cleared from fields on a regular basis to help to control parasites
and encourage even grazing.
- The quality
of compost made from horse manure varies according to the bedding
used by owners; straw is best.
- To compost your
manure, the muck heap should be turned regularly and watered if
it appears to be drying out.
Dog Fouling Facts
As well as being
hazardous and unsightly, dog mess can be particularly dangerous
for children, offensive to wheelchair users and those
who are visually impaired. The minimum on-the-spot fines to irresponsible
owners is now £100.
- There are around
7m dogs in the UK.
- They produce
around 1,000 tonnes of excrement every day.
- It can
cause an infection called toxocariasis in humans which can cause
blindness, with children especially vulnerable.
- Allowing your
dog to foul a public area is an offence.

Well done! I live in Gullane and in the past few years that I have been
here, I have noticed a shockingly huge increase in the amount of dog
poo on pavements, at parks in the the streets and now in the Hawthorn
bushes at the beach - poo being thrown whilst still in the bag! It is
an absolute disgrace and it is good to know that there are people out
there who care about their communities.
PICK UP AFTER YOUR...........
E Mwembo, Gullane.
It's really good to see that someone is trying to do something
for the community in aim to rid the pavements and kids playing
fields of dog mess.
Mr Davies. Resident of Barnetby le Wold, North
should be a national campaign.
It SHOULD be
a national campaign, I've trodden in dog * * * * twice in recent
weeks and I clean up after my dogs so it's other dirty owners.
Somewhere in the UK.
I like your campaign;
here in Brigg trying to walk on the footpaths is becoming impossible
with the amount of mess.
IT INTERNATIONAL!!! I leave it where it drops .sh** slip n
slide ya know hehehehehe

What a fantastic idea... I will certainly revisit the site for information
and promotional goods. I am a Community worker on a large housing
estate in Greater Manchester, we as all involved here will relate
too, are constantly looking at ways to get the message out there
about responsible ownership and awareness of theimpact on others
as well as the management of the environment, Image and out side
perceptions. Well done.

I was once asked by a passer by if i was embarrassed when people
saw me picking up dog poo in public, i told them i would
be more embarrassed if someone saw me leaving it behind!.
Mr B Davies. Somewhere
in the UK (with a tesco.net email).
is already international news! i heard about this website
from concerned and responsible pet owning friends here in the
we'd like to implement something like this in our very own community
and are working towards it at this very moment. i fully support you
and your cause, and i wish you much success.

Washington DC supports your cause! I'm tacking one of those printouts
onto my next door neighbors' front door. His dog has a case diarrhea
(bless!) with proof on my front lawn weekly.

Hey, tell me how do I clean
up after a horse if I'm riding it? How do I carry the necessary equipment
and how do I manage this on
a busy road? Who holds the horse whilst I perform the task, sorry,
be realistic.Dogs yes, I totally agree, it\'s much easier.
Mary Josephine Etches, UK
Many thanks for inspiring me to start up a little
campaign of my own. Here in Hebden Bridge in West yorkshire, my street
is so bad
that you need to walk on the road to avoid the dog mess but i'm
gaining support and the council have promised to send out dog wardens
to keep an eye on the problem. Cheers
Neil Pollock, UK.
Fantastic campaign and website - I will strongly support
Clean Up After Your and I hope many other people do too!
Z Harmston, UK.
Admirable work your doing.I have always tried to do my
bit as a lifelong dog-owner/breeder to keep our streets free of dog
that 'poo' word (dreamt up by non dog-owning media people!).The
satisfaction it gives a responsible owner knowing that the curtain
twitchers cannot point the finger at you- quite apart from having
clean streets is what motivates me.
I really support your campaign, and think it is a great
idea. As dog owner who picks up the poo EVERY TIME I am amazed at dog
who gaze determined at the horizon whilst their dog poos at their
feet. I\'ve even offered one of my own bags for them, only to be
turned down! We need to start something like this here in Australia.
Great campaign. As a two dog family we do our very
best to make sure Charlie and Teddie\'s muck is never left where it
is a hazard
or mess. I do think the campaign needs to focus on getting Local
Authorities to get more poo bins up where dog walkers(DW's) go.
One of our favourite walks has plenty of signs up but no bins anywhere!
This is a real pain as DW\'s who are less inclined to pick up will
not do so if they have to walk for miles with a smelly bag in their
hands. Also as todays Guardian article states I know of nobody
who has been prosecuted for leaving a mess.
My other big moan is about horrid owners who excersise their dogs
on school playing fields and do not clean up. I am a primary school
teacher who loves to take the children out on the school field
but often needs to spend 1/2 hour checking it is poo free. Any
Andy Clark, UK.
I read about your campaign in The Guardian today.In our
are there is a real problem with dog mess on the pavements leading
to our school.Also
in a near by park.In my opinion dogs should be banned from playing
fields and beaches.I know of one person who lost a leg, after getting
injured on a rugby field covered in dog mess.
Jacky Dimech, UK.
As a poo-bag carrying dog owner I fully support your
campaign. There is no excuse for fouling public places - dog poo-bags
can be carried in your pocket and are clean and quick to use.
Rachel from Isle of Wight
i think this is a great site that finally hightlight
this problem. it's digusting-if people want to own dogs they should
also be responsible
for its ****!
m. ahmed, UK.
What really irks me is when I clean up after my dogs, I
spot some other poo nearby, its really gross picking up another dogs
don't know why that should be - strange/funny really !
Ben and Rosie, UK.
This site, and the campaign is great!
In addition to cleaning up after dogs and horses though, I'm surprised
there is no mention of cleaning up after cats. Don't get me wrong
I adore cats but I think it is rude that some owners think it
is perfectly ok for their cats to poop in somebody else's garden.
My cat uses a litter tray and its easy enough to clean up after.
Fantastic Site - i petitioned my local council to take action
four years ago because my local play field was covered in mess - publicity
works. We got a mention in the local paper and radio station. well
done, keep up the pressure
Good for you. The dog mess on the streets around where we live
P Brown, UK.
of dog poo
must dog s**t
where it goes
mark shepherd, UK.
Do you have any posters/stickers
I can stick on lampposts etc around my house? If not are you going
to get some printed off I think it\'s
reasonable to charge for these if you do. I have 3 grass verges
outside my house and it's dog poop hell! I've always cleaned up after
own dog (gawd bless his paws died 30/9/5) and can\'t understand
how people can leave such a disgusting mess! Many local authorities
dog poop scoops free of charge. So pick up thy poop!
M McGough, UK
I appluade your initiative, as with young kids myself they are not
always as observant as us, even if alerted to this problem! I know many
responsible owners would gripe, but shouldn't the cost of issuing fines
(employing someone) and street cleaners (that we don't have in rural
areas!) be funded by the cost of a dog license? Having seen these culprits
in action, its also the 50plus brigade that are usually to blame, with
the attitude ''we've never had to poop-scoop in the past''!
RG, Caistor area
i blame the owners

Well done. I'm getting fed up calling after dog owners to clean
their mess up. Too many see it as someone else's responsibility - presumably
the council (who would then be reprimanded by the same individuals for
overspending on street cleaning no doubt). Dog owners should take more
care of our streets.
Paul, Great Grimsby
Dear CUAY Campaign. Greta IDEA I am a loyal dog owner and I always CUA
my dog BUT it makes me mad when others dont CUA their dogs and HORSES
keep on at them!! They should be fined!!
as a pet owner myself, i agree that anyone who has a dog should clean
up after their own pets.
we live in the crosby area of scunthorpe and around where we live, there
are no pet bins for us to put our dog mess in.
Maybe if the council put more doggy bins out and about more people might
clean up after their pets.
we have also noticed that pet owners allow their animals to make a mess
on pavements where pedestrians have to walk, and neve think to clean
up after their animals.
well done we see it all the time at our work place outside in crosby
who is going to police this and make an example. thanks.
Hey. Here in Hong Kong, a few years ago we got a new anti-litter law,
with a fixed penalty, later upped to $1500 (about £100) for four
specified littering offences: dropping stuff, spitting, letting your
dog shit on the pavement and er something else.
There was a big advertising push, and it worked. People actually changed
their behaviour. You don't get old men spitting on your feet all the
time (OK, so this was a local problem of little interest to you) and
dog owners carry around newspapers to catch their pets' doings. It looks
a really pain in the arse to have to do, but I respect them for it and
now the pavements are clean to walk on.
aw the news story on thisisgrimsby and living in the Caistor area, also
blighted by dog mess, that our 3 year old stepped in, then got in the
car, etc, I thought you may like the extra publicity and thus I e-mail
the Market Rasen Mail with your website link.
I also applaud your initiative, as I too hate these errant people with
no respect to others! (Included in this are people who go through swing-doors
without looking over their shoulder to see who's following!). This would
include 'littering, dog mess, and tab ends!'. I'm a non-smoker, as I
suffer from asthma at times and once when at the lights in my car, the
car to my left tossed a burning cigarette out for it to land on my car's
bonnet and get wedged under the wipers! Thus I couldn't knock it off
using the wipers, but then I could smell the smoke through my car's ventilation
system! I also couldn't stop to take it off, basis that the road that
I was on!
The 'lack of respect' also falls into my own remit, as I am trying to
establish a road safety scheme in the UK, as I feel many people now cocooned
in a car equipped with many safety gadgets are too complacent about their
driving standards/ability! 5 years ago now, (although still living with
the trauma as it cost me my career and I'm still out of work, but hopefully
not for much longer!) I had the misfortune (fully exonerated for the
2 who died here!) to be involved in a serious car smash!
Now back driving again, I feel many others don't exercise their full
concentration whilst driving! (This stance is something I feel helped
save my own life!). People approach a roundabout, stop, look right, see
that its clear, then proceed - thus the person behind seeing that its
clear is in danger of shunting them! I get behind many cars, where the
driver is obviously looking for something, either inside or outside of
their car, but paying no attention to the traffic behind them, who do
know what/where they are going!
