Probably to do with marking their territory at a height where it wont get washed off and at a height which is about the height of your average dogs nose.

Good thing we dont do the same overwise their wouldnt be enough lamp posts to go around.

Not to mention the hydrologic analysis and equipment necessary for such a feat.

Go to any gathering of mankind, especially those music oriented, and you will see the male species scent marking all over the place. Who needs lampposts? However, there seems to be a genetic cross-over, mistaking trees for lampposts.

I think they wee up lamp posts because they would need to climb the post to wee down it.

Dogs never used to cock their legs up when peeing.

It was only when a lamp post fell on one they started doing that, just in case!

Dog urinal answer to lamppost woes
 
A doggy urinal is being touted as the answer to prematurely corroded lampposts in Sweden.

It consists of a rubber cup attached to the post and a hose to pipe the urine into the gutter.

'The average lamp-post has a lifespan of 30 years but my invention could add a further 15 years,' said inventor Lennart Jarlebro, from Boras.



 ;D ;D sorry, coultn' helpt but post it!
