I know that each day is known for something, but I got to say today is a mindboggling one and I have to wonder, who starts up this...... stuff.     All I can is wow,  now here is the story as it was given to me,  I reported, now you decide :)
There is a holiday for everything and April 25 is no exception. It’s
“Don’t Step in the Poop Day” and Chicago-based publisher Sourcebooks is
celebrating with a Twitter contest to benefit a registered 501C dog
shelter or rescue group.

Inspired by the enhanced e-book release of Things Your Dog Doesn’t Want You to Know by Hy Conrad and Jeff Johnson in the iBookstore,
Sourcebooks will donate $1 for every e-book purchase of the title on
April 25 (up to $1,000) to the registered 501C organization that
receives the most nominations on Twitter between 9:30amET and 6:30pmET.

To nominate, just Tweet the name of your favorite dog shelter or rescue group using the hashtag #dontstepinpoop.

thrilled that Sourcebooks is recognizing this often-unheralded holiday
which has long been a favorite of dogs everywhere,” said the authors.
“In researching this book, we spent hundreds of hours interviewing these
incredibly honest canines, and found that some of their favorite
expressions were ‘food’, ‘walks’, ‘play’, and ‘I gotta poop.’  The dogs –
and we – salute you.”
