Instead of his usual waking up to clean carpets thanks to a cleaning robot, an American dad was woken in the night to 25 feet of dog poop trailing through his home.

In a post on Facebook, Jesse Newton, from Arkansas in the USA detailed “the horror” of waking up to a “ poohpocalypse”.

The post, written on August 9 states in the early hours the family puppy pooped on a rug in the living room, and soon after the Roomba – a robotic vacuum cleaner - began it's nightly work while the family slept.

In a plea to other Roomba owners, Newton wrote “do not, under any circumstances, let your Roomba run over dog poop. If the unthinkable does happen, and your Roomba runs over dog poop, stop it immediately and do not let it continue the cleaning cycle. Because if that happens, it will spread the dog poop over every conceivable surface within its reach, resulting in a home that closely resembles a Jackson Pollock poop painting.”

As happened to the household, where the puppy poop was on the floorboards, furniture legs,carpets and rugs.

“Those awesome wheels, which have a checkered surface for better traction, left 25-foot poop trails all over the house,” Newton wrote.

He discovered the mess after his four-year-old climbed into his bed at 3am, smelling like dog poop then Newton went into the lounge to see a “brown-encrusted, vaguely Roomba-shaped thing sitting in the middle of the floor with a glowing green light, like everything's okay. Like it's proud of itself.”

After cleaning his child, he tackled the Roomba, in trying to clean he killed it.

Then out came the carpet shampooer, then the paper towels, then the bleach and then a steam mop to “take care of those 25-ft poop trails.”

The story has been shared over 300, 000 times on Facebook, with commentators sharing their own Roomba stories, and condolences over the Newton "poohpocalypse”.
