Poodles and Shih Tzus would be right at home in this comedy calendar, as it celebrates the best of pooping pooches.

As the name suggests, each month of the year is dedicated to a different hound answering nature’s call.

There is a good cause behind the calendar, however, as one dollar of every £11.78 sale goes to the Maui Humane Society, Hawaii, USA.

The annual character, its producers say, is perfect for the likes of a Secret Santa gift, having been printed for a number of years now.

In order to be featured in the calendar, owners must submit images of their pooping mutts to an annual photo competition.

Winners not only get the honour of having their dog feature in the annual print – they also receive doggy treats and merchandise.

In a statement, poopingpooches.com said: “This year’s edition features a French Bulldog, Jack Russell Terrier, Weimaraner, Beagle, Labrador, Treeing Walker Coonhound and more.

“Pooping Pooches dog calendar is the ultimate joke, prank or gag gift.”
