Taking care of dogs can be a tedious activity yet we love them enough to keep at it. We feed them, clothe them, wash them and even pick up their poo. Sometimes picking up a dog’s poo is not always the major issue, but finding the poo at the exact spot on time before your foot does the awful stepping on it first is. Well, I’m excited to inform you dog lovers and owners that finding your dog’s poo just got not just easier but very entertaining too with the book Find the poo written by Joe Shyllit.
Joe Shyllit’s was inspired to write Find the poo due to his own experiences encountered in finding his dog Farfel’s poo. The book depicts in the strangest places where his dog’s poo is hidden, places like leaves or twigs, stones or it could be sunlight shadows or muck. The book was conceived from the viewpoint of trying to find the exact spot the poo which has also become harder to spot because sometimes one gets distracted by trying to open an umbrella, hold a coffee or take a call and then whoops! You find the poo beneath your shoes.
In the book Find thepoo, Joe Shyllit captured his own experiences in vibrant graphics photographs, he made a collection of photographs where within each photos texture and color is Farfel’s poo. The objective is for every reader to find the poo in each photo…interesting isn’t it? Having tried all the attempts to find the poo, thef reader is to evaluate his/her answers by checking if they correspond with the correct answers at the back of the book.
