I had promised to follow the dog around till the end of the year to get good sample data on the dog's pooping pattern. I did not follow through on that promise and I have failed science. I do have a good excuse though. We started to foster dogs. I failed science for these adorable pictures (I told you it was a good excuse):
I have data up to the point that we got the first foster. The conclusion is the dog is definitely broken; well, he's definitely not normal according to the study (which I'm sure most people didn't need this study to come to that conclusion). He prefers the SW-NE directions more, but in general, a non specific directional pooper (or as I put it last time: equal opportunity directional pooper).
