First Class Dogs On Poop Deck

Discussion in 'Real Dogs' started by Sahand Miraminy, Jan 3, 2003.

  1. Hello,
    Happy new year everyone! I was wondering about the dogs going bathroom on the Poop Deck. Im thinking that would be kind of uncomfortable going bathroom on wood. Also would they get a shovel and take the waste off the side of the ship? Also, is that why its called the Poop Deck? lol well it had to come up!

    It's an old gag, but it's not dead yet!

    The poop deck is from the Latin puppis, meaning the stern. It came into English via several European languages.
