Co-Evolution Takes a Turn for the Worse

Man and Dog have co-evolved for many thousands of years. From the first time a wolf came into the fire circle of a caveman, tamely, with tale between legs, and man gave him a biscuit. To today, as described on Salon.com (reg. req'd or view an ad).
They even have their own association -- the Association of Professional Animal Waste Specialists (aPaws). A group of concerned scoopers started the organization in 2003 to increase awareness of the importance of proper animal waste disposal. The association, which has close to 100 members, also hosts the annual Pooper Scooper Round-Up. The three-day conference offers workshops, guest speakers and the always-popular Turd Herding Contest, in which participants compete to see who can pick up the most dog turds (technically sun-blackened pieces of potatoes) the fastest. The next Pooper Scooper Round-Up is scheduled for February in Orlando, Fla.
