THERE USED TO A MAN THAT WOULD WALK HIS CAT ON A LEASH THRU SPANISH SPRINGS SQUARE. I HAVEN'T SEEN HIM IN A LONG TIME. SOMETHING MAY HAVE HAPPENED TO HIM.

THERE WAS ANOTHER THAT WOULD RIDE HIS CAT IN HIS GOLF CART AROUND THE SQUARES.

This kind of topic should have reached its end a long time ago. Sad that it is continuing on and on and on.

The ruckus and mess created by how many birds equals the ruckus and mess created by one stray dog or cat in the neighborhood? So it pretty much depends on if you give a hang or not about your neighbors, doesn't it.
I have forwarded your post to the Poop Police on Patrol. They promise to drop by your patio daily to make sure it is sterile. :cop:

Thanks!* :bigthumbsup: Too bad we need them... if people were more responsible with their half-way commitment to their "not quite pets" and more considerate of their neighbors we wouldn't need poop police. ;D

Taltarzac, I just noticed that you lived in Itasca IL. We're from Bloomingdale, IL. Close neighbor. My husband had his practice (Veterinarian) in Schaumburg for over 34 years!
What a small world. Obviously we love dogs and cats. Haven't run into any anti dog people. But we've only been here a month. I'm not worried. I have no use for people that don't love animals and I have no problems voicing my opinions. Nice to meet you.

And what would be really nice is if they came in sets and were not ridiculously expensive. This is for making a small Christmas tree of nothing but dog ornaments.

These http://www.segwaycollection.com/dogchor.html dog ornaments are neat but it looks like many are out of stock right now. Must be popular. :dontknow:

My father and mother are from Itasca. I went back there in late Autumn of 1994 to help take care of an uncle who had lost an arm and a leg as well as part of his skull to a German tree burst tank shell. He had been on a scouting patrol in Italy in 1944 when this happened. I was helping my aunt out until my uncle could get into a nearby nursing home.

I just wanted to reply to everyone and thank those who took the time to help me understand. I love animals and the people who love them IF those people are responsible owners and care for their animals properly and take care when they come in contact with others or others' property. Sure are a lot of feelings about this subject!

I like dogs. I don't own one, but I enjoy them when I'm in their company (& most other critters, as well). My only objection is owners "toileting" their pets on my property. There is no reason for this. They can let their dogs relieve themselves on their own property & then walk them. Thanks for your consideration.
