We who live here know this is a skewed conversation, when 30-40 people complain, leaving 89,960 who are not bothered by the problem cited.
Of all of your memorable and accurate posts this is one of my top favorites.

Well said.

Each year we leave TV and go back into the "real world" for six months. It makes me realize how wonderful The Villages is, and what a protected bubble we have here. In the fall when we return to TV, it's like getting into a warm bath, surrounded by beauty and serenity.

We are blessed to be part of this wonderful community.
And The Villages and particularly me feel so blessed to have you here with your sweet furry family.

This is totally wrong, You may be correct about the 30 to 40 complaining and rightfully so. You make it sound as if the other 89,960 are not bothered. Of course the entire 89,960 would be bothered if confronted by dog poop in their path. Not picking up after ones dog doesn't have to be a fact of life in the Villages. The solution is simple, everyone should clean up after their pet.

I would also welcome you to live in The Village of Hadley - not happening here. Maybe we should have a village that welcomes dogs to poop and run indiscrimanetly!

Of course everyone should clean up after their pet. But I'm really not so sure about the entire 89,960 being bothered. That's quite an assumption. And the majority of the ones who would be bothered would probably still just step over it and move on with their lives.

I'm definitely "bothered" by dog poop in my path, golf course, and other public places, and I've written many times that other people's property should be respected and not considered a "public manure yard".

What I was talking about in the last comment was the magnitude of the problem here on this board....versus the magnitude of the problem in context of overall life in TV. What I meant to say was that while the 89,960 are probably "bothered" by it, they don't let it rule or ruin their life or ability to be happy in TV.

For people who've never been here, if they're reading only this board and drawing conclusions, they're skewed because of the tiny proportion of the 90,000 that actually posts and complains on this board. And competitor communities do LOVE to see cr*p stirred up against TV, making it look like we're all inconsiderate morons who are hell to live with. I think it's a bad idea to form one's opinion only by reading this board instead of actually being here for awhile.

That would be The Village of PattyLand where pet ownership is mandatory.

If I am not mistaken, doesn't poop turn white and then disappear after a rain?? I think I would rather have poop in my yard rather then a stray beer can, candy wrapper, etc that will stay there until someone picks it up.
