This is how the sarcastic expression "Oh Didhams!" came about, said to someone crying over something trivial, like a grazed knee, or pooh on their pillow.
Naturally it was corrupted over time: https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/diddums
Residents of Auckland's North Shore in New Zealand who have found their pillows scattered with dog toffee can rest a little easier now – the master of the mystery pooper has owned up. Writing on the Beach Haven and Birkdale Community Facebook page, an apologetic Rick Didham exposed his Bichon Frise-Shih Tzu cross, Jack: Hi, …
this dog may be a case for use of shock collars - go outside the boundary, *ZAP*
and don't let the puppy eyes fool ya - behind those eyes is a PSYCHOPATHIC POOPER!
It also has that irritating concept of "be nice to the bully and he will stop" ANTI-logic. And rewarding for bad behavior. And a host of OTHER complete misconceptions.
[The dog's experience in the neighbor yard should be as unpleasant as possible, if he's inclined to tear things up and/or crap on pillows to mark his new "territory". THEN he will STAY away']
I understand that being IGNORED is sometimes the worst punishment for a dog... even a NEGATIVE response is better [to them] than NO response. This sounds like a job for... a PORTABLE KENNEL!

Something that is utterly illegal in civilised countries.
The fact that BB recommends it (and appears quite blase about use of shock collars) says all you need to know about his personality and utter selfishness and lack of empathy.
Quite honestly, anyone that approves of the use of those things has no right to call themselves human, let alone a person.
A new meaning for house trained!
How & why on earth would a dog decide to dump like this? As a recue dog from a puppy mill would he have even seen a pillow before hunting out the neighbours?
My dog generally is happy to unload in the garden or barely 10 yards out on a walk, the only effort he'll willingly expend is leaving the house.
That's a shitty situation for those living near that dog, although that being said if it does happen, being nice to the dog does make sense.
I've got a minature Jack Russell at home. Sometimes when I wake up in the morning he's had a little accident and he looks so sheepish, you can't really punish him since it's not his fault, it's not like he thinks "You know what i'm gonna do today, I'm gonna shit on your floor". Also since the dog in the article is a rescue, you don't know the abuse it's had to deal with in it's life, being beaten, being burnt with cigarettes and simply being abandoned by his previous owner, it's traumatic, imagine you being abandoned by your parents, not nice.
He could consider some sort of dog therapy to help him get over it. It does sound stupid but it's been scientifically proven that certain ways to act around a dog and ways to treat it do help it live a better life and get over some of the trauma that's happened to it.
The dog is on a campaign to punish those who let their domestic cats out to torture and murder innocent wildlife. Cats should STAY indoors.
For the cat-loving flamers: Dogs (nor other pets) are not allowed to roam freely, killing anything they want. Cats should not do it either.
I had a similar problem where the neighbor was actually letting their small dog out to roam free, so it'd come dig my yard.
After it "accidentally" got soaked in a tub of motor oil and went back home in that condition, the situation was rectified and the dog lost its roaming privileges.
Sadly, another small dog was simply run over by a car, which is a horrible fate.
"The internal and external anal sphincters then begin a culturally mediated pas de deux, the former pressing for release and the latter restricting discharge until the opportune moment."
Obviously little Didhams is, culturally speaking, somewhat lacking
Look, a Bison Frise/Shih Tzu mix is a combination of of two breeds that have literally centuries experience sitting on a monarch's lap looking down on the hoi polloi. Of course they're going to look for a nice pillow for their elimination efforts, and equally of course if you feed them something delicious, they'll stop.
Because you don't shit where you eat.

Actually shih tsus are the result of Chinese breeding of Tibetan dogs - which range in size from the Lhasa apso to the so-called Tibetan terrier (tsang apso or "ordinary dog"). They were bred to be house dogs and watch dogs and to be safe near children.
Neither this nor the bichon frise responds at all well to being left on its own. I suspect this one is being left alone and wandering out to seek human company. It can't be repeated too often, if you want a dog, make sure your lifestyle is suited to a dog. As someone else puts it, you can't put them on a hanger in the cupboard when you don't want them around.
