WTF - whatever happened to white dog poo ???

What's Hot

I recall many years ago regularly seeing dog poo that had dried to a chalk white colour - where's it gone and what were we feeding dogs for this to occur ?.

    2 main theories.

    1) Less bone in the diet since BSE.

    2) Less shit left on pavements for weeks on end.


    The poo needs to be high in calcium, and left for a few days, before it gets white

    To add to Wez's theories, I reckon everyone saw white dog shit only in 1976 when it literally baked in the sun for about 6 weeks. I too can remember all the fun we had with it as kids.

    People tend to pick up dog shit these days. 

    When I was a kid every playing field you went on was a minefield of dog shit. I can remember my made doing a huge sliding tackle through a massive dog egg and getting it all the way up his legs.

    Street Cleaners were notoriously lazy back then :-)

    It's just a flashback to childhood, I suppose all kids must go through a Dog Shit Curiosity phase and then move on, mine must have been in 1976. Scientifically, I think you are probably right.

    See, it wasn't all better in the 70s :) There were a whole lotta turds on the pavements - a good 6-7 key areas to avoid on the way back from school.

    I remember it from the 1960s. I think it was 'cos people gave dogs bones, and didn't supplement their diet with all the vet-recommended stuff you get these days.

    i used to eat dog biscuits when i was very little, the classic red, blue green and plain rusk ones that used to come in a big paper sack. maybe they had something to do with it? but i don't remember if that ever made my shit white.

    Yeah, but to be fair, you probably never pooed in the park and left it for a day or three, so it's not exactly a scientific deduction.

  • I thought it was because dog food used to contain all sorts of cheap fillers in the 1960s.... including chalk.

    Our street was full of white dogshit and broken milk bottles. More importantly though, what happened to porn mags shoved into bushes?

    White poop was banned as it was considered racist.

     I can remember my made doing a huge sliding tackle through a massive dog egg and getting it all the way up his legs. 
    When playing rugby at Bedford, there was a massive dog shite right inthe middle of the pitch. A mate got knee'd in the back of the head,breaking a vertebrae in his neck. Guess where he landed?

    There's a small amount of ash in dog food, there used to be a lot more of it.

    Sprocket is on a raw food diet, which includes 10% bone. Her poop is not white.

    Also the "ash" in dog food isn't ash in the sense of what you get at the end of a barbecue or camp fire.

    Back then it was traditional to get bones from the butcher for the dog and to give dogs bones. 
    Well thats my theory.

    My dogs poo is white when he had a big cow bone from the butcher. Definitely bone content.

    When I was in Brussels in 1998/99 (and it briefly stopped raining which wasn't often) there was white dog poo, and brown stuff all over the place, felt proud to be British oddly.
    Imagine something sharp and witty here ......

    I think the ash is mainly bone, not sure though, there were a lot of urban myths about it when I was growing up in the '70s.
     
    In fact I'm not entirely sure that the 1970s weren't an urban myth. I was there and I still don't quite believe most of it.

    These days all white dog poo is collected and shipped to the Fender custom shop where they mix it with dilute epoxy to make historically accurate 'clay' fretboard dots. Just like they did in the old days when Leo was running things.
