Dog Diarrhea Smears
The street art of New York City
When you live in the suburbs and your dog has diarrhea in the grass, it’s easy to shrug your shoulders and say, “well there’s no way I can pick that up.”
Usually there’s nobody around anyway.
But when your dog has diarrhea here in New York City it’s right on the sidewalk where pedestrians are walking. There are too many people nearby watching your dog have diarrhea and waiting to see what you’ll do. So you bravely stick your hand into a plastic bag and try your best to scoop up a handful of liquid diarrhea from the sidewalk so people know you care.
Usually you just end up smearing it around to look like a cave painting or a Van Gogh, but at least you tried.
I experience this situation every time I foster a dog (foster dogs perpetually have diarrhea), so whenever I see evidence of someone else’s struggle smeared across the sidewalk I smile in solidarity.
I’d like to think that someone whispered “Simba” as they smeared this one across the sidewalk.
This one looks like a crime scene.
I call this one “The Nickelodeon.”
Soon the snow will begin to fall and smear season will be no more. I think we can all learn to appreciate dog diarrhea for what it is: the street art of New York City.
