As if scooping dog poop into a plastic bag isn’t its own reward, Springfield’s Development and Public Works Department is offering dog walkers a whiff of fame as well.

It is sponsoring a “Scoop the Poop” contest, and 12 lucky poop-picker-up-ers will have their pups featured in the department’s annual “Canines for Clean Water” calendar.

Springfield residents can enter­ the contest, which wraps up Friday, by pledging to pick up their dog’s poop — always.

They also must post a photo of their dog on the City of Springfield Oregon Government page on Facebook. The post must be related to the contest by the hashtags #Canine­Pledge or #SpringfieldRes­. Photos also can be emailed to water­resources@springfield-or.gov, accompanied by the same hashtags.
