You Sir have not lived, never flung dung on a stick at someone (horse is usually good for this...horse poo that is) or deer poo as scatter shot.

Yes and we probably put our hands in our mouths or ate without washing too Smile

My own theory on the loss of white dog poo is that road sweeping schedules are so good these days that turds simply do not have time to mature.

All dog turds start somewhere in the brown spectrum, but as time passes they (a) dehydrate, and (b) the remaining organic matter is consumed by insects and micro-organisms. This eventually reveals the undigestible calcium-based materials, which are white, forming a skeletal, light-weight poo.

A corrollary to this is the suggestion that pet meats are now prepared from fresh meat and do not contain the very high proportions of bone-meal that were used in past generations. Similarly, very few pets have whole bones as a major part of their diet.

Hence, much less calcium, and no white deposits even as the turds mature.

Glad to be of service.

Hmmm have you also noticed that there is a lot more white chocolate about these days?...It was a lot rarer in the days of crumbly white dog poo!
