Whilst on the beach today I noticed a very strange thing. I had seen it before but paid no heed as I actually thought that I was seeing things ( wouldn’t be the first time).
Somebody had not picked up after their dog. Which is not unusual in and of itself. However, the dog poo was colored red. I have seen this now three times over the last month. And each time the poo was red as was the surrounding sand.
Therefore, I can only conclude that there is somebody going around with a tin of red spray paint and spraying the dog poos that are left behind red. This must be to highlight his/her indignation at the dog poo and the carelessness of the owner.
This fascinates me. Most people can quite clearly see when someone has not picked up after their dog as it is a dog poo on the ground that should not be there. I am not sure whether spray painting it red will do anything to prevent the owner from not picking up after their dog.
How did this person come to the conclusion that this would be a good idea? Did they wake up in the middle of the night and go ‘Eureka I will spray paint any dog poo that is left behind red’.
I would love to see the person in full spray-painting mode. Maybe she/he is the new Banksy or Damien Hirst creating sandy shit art? Apparently #shitart is a thing on Instagram. I have described Buzz as doing a ‘shituesque poo’ in a previous blog. Maybe I am onto something? Let me know what you think?
All the best
