My dog poops in a circle.

Anywhere the Earth's magnetic field is, dog's poop.
 
2014-01-02 01:28:08 PM
I smell Nobel. Assuming that's the name of the dog in the picture.

I always poop in line with earth's magnetic field.  Mostly because my toilets point due south.

Mine point east and north. What does it mean? WHAT DOES IT MEAN??

How can they be sure with just Lab tests?
 
2014-01-02 01:53:53 PM
do you know what the dogs are doing to the soil?

they're building landing strips for martian dogs, i swear to god.

I think my dog was trained by a Vietnamese land mine logistic specialist.

My dog gets constipated during solar storms.

Maybe they're just avoiding looking into the sun.

My dog only poop in line with magical lines of power drawn by ancient Druids.
 
2014-01-02 02:26:39 PM
I had to go out to the yard and check, and what evidence there is seems to agree with this study at quick glance. I didn't take the trouble to get out a compass and count turds though.

Oh ffs.  This probably has more to do with keeping the body out of prevailing winds carrying the odor, or the dog learning that AM and PM sun is to the East or West, so don't point your face or ass in either direction.
 
2014-01-02 02:30:57 PM
Yeah the comments are great.
Half of them are "MY TAX DOLLARS PAID FOR THIS HURP DURP!!!"
 
2014-01-02 02:32:10 PM
Germans and poop.
 
2014-01-02 02:32:26 PM
Worst. Poop. Thread. Ever.
 
2014-01-02 02:32:54 PM
I have a big fenced area for my dog so she is free to go wherever she wants.  She primarily poops facing west, then north.  Never south or east.
 
2014-01-02 02:32:58 PM
My dog poops in bushes.  Or crab grass.  He seems to really love crab grass.  Crab grass at mailboxes.

/I don't pick it up.
//I'm a dick, but no one is stepping in it.

My dogs crap in line with whatever has been recently washed.

I have one pointing due south and one pointing due north.

Sometimes I walk upstairs to poop just because pooping facing north just seems right.
 
2014-01-02 02:36:22 PM
My first thought was, what scientist would sign up this kind of study, of course they are German.
 
2014-01-02 02:38:16 PM
Maybe there's a science to why my cat can never, ever puke on the hard wood parts of my floor, only carpet.
 
2014-01-02 02:40:46 PM
Can a scientist please explain to me why my Pomeranian's poop is bigger than his entire body?


......either that or a Grizzly Bear is sneaking into my yard every night.
 
2014-01-02 02:40:59 PM
Magnetic lines?  I think my dogs turn into the wind, like an aircraft carrier..

One wonders why your concept wasn't considered in the research.  Probably because there was an incentive to produce a particular conclusion.

JustFarkingGreat: Still no cure for cancer...


You know what? Screw curing cancer. What's the point of living longer if you miss out on all the important stuff like this?

Besides which, this could save lives too. "When we woke up, we had drifted far out to sea, into a thick fogbank. We knew we couldn't be more than a few hours' rowing from land, but which direction? If we chose the wrong way, by the time we realized our mistake, we might be irretrievably lost. Then Fido started sniffing and circling. We watched anxiously as he carefully aligned his nose and anus with the Earth's magnetic field. His north-pointing turd was our salvation, a bright smelly polestar that guided us safely into port."
 
2014-01-02 02:48:12 PM
Oh yeah? Then why do I have to do an Easter Egg hunt when cleaning up after my dog? She poops in a circle around the house.

the801: do you know what the dogs are doing to the soil?

Is that what they're doing when the scoot across the carpet?

Iron boogers in it's nose?

/I don't think so, Tim.
 
2014-01-02 02:54:16 PM
My yard must be the nexus of the magnetic field.

Mine too.  She sniffs all over the place looking for the perfect spot and then she draws a shiat circle around it.

we have an adorable female yorkie... she appears to always poop in a line nearly perpendicular to the exact center of the Earth's core.  (also she makes the cutest little face when she does it.)

So that's what it takes to get on the Nice List.

We need to do a "directional correlation" and measure something far more important: is there a link by monitoring the direction dogs drag their butts on the carpets. We'll need to have some discussions with the cat folks on their feline findings as well.
 
2014-01-02 03:06:38 PM
Good, now explain why my dog walks to her food bowl, picks up one piece of food, walks 10' to carpet, eats the piece of food, repeat until full.

My dog does the same thing. If I'm not in the living room she won't eat.

I had a poodle that did that years ago.  Dumb.

My dog's compass must be outta whack.
 
2014-01-02 03:13:54 PM
Meh, I do the same thing.

I only rent apartments where the crapper faces north.
 
2014-01-02 03:16:36 PM
I live on a block that runs east-west. My dog almost always waits 10 minutes into the walk to poop around the corner, where the street runs north-south.

Little guy is a rescue from the south (from the apparently barberic state of Georgia) and HATES the cold, but will shake and shiver until he turns that corner to poop.

We walk him on a leash but I wonder if this is why he won't go before we turn the corner.
