Here's how they cleverly crafted such a sign in Holland.

But that's not a dog. That's an Albanian.

That's ... a graphic sign. Although, shouldn't the pooping dog have an "X" over it or something?

The dog should be flinging poo at the owner.

I guess such a sign as you describe would actually mean "No dog pooping allowed here."

But evidently, this sign is meant to say: "Go ahead and let your dog take a dump here." And then I imagine there must be yet another sign in the immediate vicinity which (somehow) adds the caveat of: "And after he's done, scoop it up."

Really? That is actually a sign saying "dogs can poop there"?!

Now. That's. Funny.

I saw the same thing in Israel, except it was a Boston terrier instead of a sight hound. Whatever language you speak, this makes the point.

The picture sign makes my brain hurt less than the words on yours, Spooky. :(

I hate it when people don't use apostrophes.

That sign is graphic. My disgust is fighting with my desire to see the 'prostitute crossing' sign.

In Europe, when a sign has a red ring--such as the one presented by OP--that IS the 'red X'. Red-rimmed signs mean: Forbidden. Because so many various nationalities live/travel through Europe, the red-rim is universal & usually has a picture, be it a car, people, or, in this case, a...er...pooch versus the written word, incase the person looking at it doesn't speak the local language.

See... here I was thinking that was the Dairy Queen Soft Serve sign. Come and get it. We just need a cone beneath the Soft Serve machine in that picture.

Course the old: put your neighbor's dog poop from your yard into a paper bag and stuff the contents into their door key holes, into their mail slot/box, and smear onto their window ledges works too.

In this case, even if the dog does speak the local language the picture is needed as most dogs in Europe are functionally illiterate.

And if you put a big X over the sign the dogs will be unable to see what they're not meant to be doing.

Ahem. For a Flyers fan, you're actually pretty wise.

You don't have to be a thug to like the Flyers.


But it helps.

I was actually thinking the same thing. I've never had my dog make poo that looked like soft serve ice cream...I guess dogs poo differently across the pond.

In Europe, when a sign has a red ring--such as the one presented by OP--that IS the 'red X'. Red-rimmed signs mean: Forbidden. That is terribly confusing.

The European standard ISO 3864 specifies a red circle with a diagonal slash as the 'forbidden' symbol.

How does that fit in with the standard speed limit sign : A simple number in a red-rim ?

Those Europeans should actually follow their own standards !

I would have also assumed that it was a permitted dog pooping area.
