Angry Dog poop

I have lived in TV for some time and still don't understand WHY people bring their pets to other villager's property to do their business? It's disrespectable and gross!
I have a courtyard villa on the corner and today when I entered my street a resident was allowing his dog to defecate in the front of my property!
I reminded him that it was my property and to please not bring his dog again. He replied "I will try"

Was he in the street? I wallk my dogs in the street and pick up their poop. Someone did say you should not do that. I guess he did not get the street is not his property.

The rules are really pretty simple, your dog, your property, my dog, my property. Never should someone else’s animal be on another persons property without permission. Respect goes a long way towards congenial neighbors.

Yep, been awhile since the last dog poop post. I thought the problem was solved for all of TV, guess not.

My situation is solved. I gathered both midnight dog walkers and had them bring their husbands and laid out the law of my land. Simple, Very Diplomatically, Handled. They understood. We even served them Coffee and Cake and stayed friends.

They of course denied any wrongdoing at first until like Warner Wolf said years ago, lets go to the videotape. Actually The Cloud I guess. It was clearly them and they couldn't deny it. I let them off the hook immediately. I did mention if they had a slip that I would reciprocate with the action myself on their lawn. We don't have a Doggie anymore. Case Closed.

There are so many fun things do do at the Villages, I don’t really give a poop about Dodd’s poops.

A sure cure?
Maybe....but it is fun.
When you see them headed for your yard run in and turn on the sprinkler system for that zone. You may miss but eventually you will hit it.
Yes I have done it!!

I don't have an issue with it. Then again, my property is not being "directly" sought out along the way. I guess it's just a pit stop on the walk. I don't own the property all the way to the end of the street as there is a right of way, so if they stay in that area (whether it's grass or stones) and clean up, that works for me. We live where there are a lot of dogs, but they have very respectful owners.

Dogs must walk to do their business. They don't know property lines. Stop being an idiot and post a sign. If the dog owner does not clean up the poop, then kick him in the tail.

Nothing better than warm steamy poop on a cold winter morning.

It's not just the dog poop, yesterday I watched a dog urinate on the grass across the street and from then on every other dog that walked past that spot stopped , smelled, then marked that spot with his own urine. Tell me how the owners pick up the pee. I believe owners just don't want to ruin their lawn.
