I’ve been picking up someone’s dog poop at the Dunedin mailbox for weeks.. I’ve been picking it up because I didn’t want anyone to think it was from my dog. But I’ve had enough It’s a small dog. Some people are just lazy

Oh it’s pesticide, they put it on the lawn like fertilizer, strong enough to kill a pest elephant in the right quantities. My Welshie had an excellent nose I trained him carefully as I didn’t want anything to happen to him. But I saw other dogs. Dogs are so dependent on their owners....

I don’t understand some dog owners, it’s your dog, please keep it on your property. It’s common sense and respect for others. Would you mind if I was coming back from a Square and pee’d on your lawn? Or worse?

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

Is her husband walking on the lawn in his bare feet? Jeesh!!
It's hard for me to believe the part about it not being a problem until the sign came down. So the people who previously kept their dogs off her lawn are now suddenly saying "Okay, Spot, you can do your thing there now"?

Yes, unless the developer put it there.

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...
Last week 14 birds,2 squirrels, and a rabbit pooped in my yard. No one bothered to pick it up and the yard still looks great.

Must just be dogs causing all the damage and heartache.

By the way, I see neighbors using this stuff, including one who has a "keep your dog off my lawn" sign:

Dog urine destroys the grass and vermin, especially rats’ second favorite food is dog poo. My dogs had their own sandpit in the backyard, but then I could have a fence.

Someone had a motion sensor on their water system so the sprinklers would start when anyone went by.

It’s called the Scarecrow Sprinkler. We currently have a raccoon invasion here and I use one. The hose is attached to the unit that goes off for about 3 seconds and makes a noise too. Keeps away deer from farm fields as well. Available at Amazon, not expensive.
I’d set it up not to sprinkle where people would walk.
