Default Anonymous complaint brings down dog sign

An anonymous complaint brought down three “no poop” signs in the village of Dunedin. The small signs like the white crosses scattered across The Villages are technically lawn ornaments and are deed restricted. District 10 commissioners could offer no help for the lady asking how to keep dog owners from letting dogs poop and pee in her yard. The Dunedin lady said her husband has cancer and is taking Chemo and in fragile health. She went on to say it was a health issue for them. The best the CDD chairman could offer was “I feel for you, it is a problem all over The Villages”. She said it wasn’t a problem until she had to take down her small white dog ornament. Are some dog owners that entitled and insensitive to their neighbors? Sad...

Health problem, this excuse, that excuse. Follow the rules you agreed to follow when you purchased.

Don't blame others if you get caught violating them.

Is her husband walking on the lawn in his bare feet? Jeesh!!

I'm thinking the OP was talking more about inconsiderate pet owners than deed restrictions. Maybe I'm wrong......

If something were anchored in concrete (such as a front yard light pole) would it considered an ornament?

People have been letting their dog poop on our lawn for over two years and they always pick it up, it doesn't hurt the grass or leave an odor, I don't see that there is a problem unless they are not picking it up and if that's the case I would keep an eye out for a day to see who is doing it and then talk to them.

Maybe the rules ought to include "Don't let your dog foul other people's gardens".

I should have thought that it was common decency, but if we need to have it spelled out and are not allowed to take retroactive measures...

Up north some people leave hidden poison on their grass, I never let my dogs go anywhere I wasn’t sure of.

Where up north? I will add that to vile states that I will never set foot in again. The list grows every year.

Folks in TV with dogs don’t seem to like them peeing or pooping on their own lawn,
so they just walk them down to their neighbors!
