You bring up a valid point and I'm sorry you're being shot down. Some of us will listen and respond appropriately.

When I called about my LSV
my 1st question was about pets.
It was made very clear.
PETS ARE WELCOME
I even took them into the sales office.
The Villages is still part of this free country.

GOD BLESS AMERICA

I was kidding around in all of these posts on this thread previous to this one. I don't own a dog but many, MANY people do and they are allowed at the town squares and the reason for all of this kind of rude to a new person clowning around is that this subject is one that is brought up frequently and soon gets down to nasty remarks by both sides.

A huge majority of people own dogs here and they are allowed at the squares. I imagine that there is some risk to stepping on them or falling over them but I imagine that the owners are about as careful of them as they were of children if they had them.

I enjoy the dogs of The Villages. Some people don't. Apparently you like dogs too. I just read all of your posts and you are a dear, nice person.

Yes leave your pet home..Better yet pets please don't take your owner out
Not to "grab the spoon," but I have a better one.....wife and I are seated outside at Dominic's eating our meal, lady walks by on the sidewalk with little fluffy, little fluffy squats in preparation for a #2. Lady expeditiously, pulls out a napkin, cups her hands under fluffy's posterior and catches the prize!!!!

YUMMMMM, how appetizing for us!!

Then there are the pamper blowouts in the family pools.

Something for everybody here.

I will follow that up with a fork.
If I had a dollar for every time I have been blessed with a diaper swap I could buy a villa today in TV.
The best on ever was @ the Concert, done in the bleachers , and the diaper dropped below.

But then one is not to speak it.

there are so many dogs here. and their owners take them everywhere, in all sorts of stores, in shopping carts, in strollers, and in the squares and during the various craft shows and such. i am so tired of it. the incessant urinating, and such (I am referring to the dogs, not the owners). enough. one per household should be the allowed number, and no more messing wherever the owner thinks their pet can go. i do not care that you clean up the poop, crap on your own yard. thank you.....for letting me have my rant of the day!

You will see it all. One night at LSL,vendor night. Dog takes a dump,with everyone around, she cleans it up,then brings out these these white wipes and using 3 or 4 of them cleans her dogs butt.

Is there any forum anywhere that has hammered the poop more than here.
WE should all get golden crap piles.
If someone ever says to you, you don't know Sh_ _
You tell them you live in the Villages.

I couldn't agree more, and I'm a dog lover, also. But amongst a big crowd of people is just not the place for your pooch, big or small. And I would never take my dog inside any kind of store or business, unless there was a sign displayed outside saying they are welcome. I wouldn't put an employee in the awkward position of having to tell me they aren't allowed. I guess I'm just not the "in your face, I'll do as I please until told otherwise" type.
