Don't let your dog poop here sign

I was out walking around a couple of days ago and noticed this weird no dogs sign.  Since dogs are usually allowed everywhere in Germany, I went closer and realized that the dog was pooping.  I can't remember ever seeing a similar sign before, but now I've seen a couple of them.

 From a design perspective, I don't like the literal representation of the turds--especially the one which is still coming out of the dogs butt.  I think it would have been better if just a single turd mound was used, or just a sign with a turd mound instead of a dog.

But the main flaw is that you'd have a hard time stopping a dog from actually pooping.  They just want you to clean it up.  It's as if the sign was meant to be read by dogs and not humans.

    No! they don't just want you to just clean it up! They want and deserve what the sign is suggesting. Just because its a dog doesn't mean that it is welcome to poop OR PEE anywhere it wants to. RESPECT other peoples property and their desire NOT TO trample or smell your dogs excrement in to their car or house. Just because you pick up the poop doesn't mean you get all of it (RESIDUE). They know it I know it and now you know it.
