Toxic Poop!

Canines_Clean_WaterDid you know that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) puts dog waste in the same category as oil and toxic chemicals? That's why this past June the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board launched the “Canines for Clean Water” summer movie series—the most enjoyable way to crack down on improperly managed dog poop ever conceived. Next up? MPRB , Pampered Pooch Playground and Sidewalk Dog are teaming up to host a super fun contest!

We're looking for ten valid yet funny reasons to pick up after your dog. If you're among the ten winners, your reason will appear on a poster along with a photo of your dog. Photos will be taken by Sarah Beth Photography; posters will be displayed throughout the Minneapolis park system and featured on Sidewalk Dog's blog. Plus, all winners will receive cool gear from Stunt Puppy, and the grand prize winner will also receive a $50 gift card to Pampered Pooch Playground.  YIPPIE!!!!

Enter to win: Email your reason to by 9/30/09 (fall/winter themes welcome). Ten (10) winners will be chosen and notified shortly thereafter.  For more details visit

Good luck form all of us at the PPP!
