Apparently it's weird, but our small dog does her business in our yard. As far as I know, every homeowner in TV owns their own yard, and they have a right to let their dogs make logs all day long in their own yard.

If the dog is taken out for a walk around town, the dog has to be on a leash, and the owner is supposed to pick up the doo-doo. If somebody does leave dog poop in some grass along a sidewalk or street......

Maybe it's just me, but I can't see any sense to spending money on Poop Police and DNA testing of dog poop here in TV. This is not a condo-style appartment community. We have our own yards. Do people here really want Community Watch money spent on sending out patrolmen to pick up dog poop left by the sidewalk and get samples to send in for DNA testing?!?!???

Is this all people have to do with their time.....getting all p*ssed off about a dog log in the grass by a sidewalk???? If so, I'd recommend the Volunteer Opportunities listings in the newspaper!
I don't like it when it is in my yard and I run over it with my lawn mower! I have decided to just throw them "logs" right out in the street......aren't they pretty.

Bugs ... We're having this discussion because there is something funny about saying bad words and talking about poop. Now that we're wrinklies, we can go through our second childhood.

I have talked to my dog many times about this very thing. I told her you have a nice place to go in our back yard. why do you keep waiting until you get in the house.

Default And "Inquiring Minds" wanna know...

...What was your dogs response to your question?

(In my best Sigmund Frued voice)

"Do you and your dog "Chit-Chat" often"?...

Hmmm, I see. "And what do you talk about besides...you know..."Poop places"?

"I think we are making some progress...your Doggy has inhibitions of "Pooping" in public...where she may be seen by others...Perfectly normal. You doggy prefers the "In side Privacy" that your home provides to do her business".

"Again...perfectly normal" !

"I think we have made some excellent progress today. Your Doggy is perfectly normal !...but, Iam concerned about you".

"Were you happy as a child"?...

"OHHHhhh My. I see we are out of time for today. We'll continue in our next session".

I belive the cost of the DNA testing could be covered by the fines that are awarded to the Poopetraters. Probably will never happen in TV, but wouldn't you just love to see the Poopetraters doing the perp walk on camera. If you have ever been the victim of a sneeky Poopetrater, justice would be sweet. By the way, I have always owned dogs and always will but my dog, my yard.

Actually, the subject was the first item on the agenda. What it was about was either/or Numbers One and Two!

In fact, usually both!

That's how we trained our dogs too. Our yard, not the street, not the commons areas not the mail station. We all have yards, why is it so difficult for dog owners to have their dogs use their own yards?

Not so fast TBug I going to campaign on that issue. It is a great metaphor for how Obama is managing our economy and foreign policy

I don't know if that's the case, but I do know that most are getting a chitty-chitty-bang-bang of this thread!

Also, I was just thinking... (sniff-sniff) why do they have to go through the expense of doing DNA testing, having administrative costs and hiring of fecal sniffvestigators? All they have to do is put the dogs to work doing what they love to do... go around sniffing the Poopetrater's droppings and other dogs butts. Rewards can be offered of deluxe doggie treats to canine snitchers who provide information leading to the arrest and conviction of violating pooches and their owners, and even an annual "Sniffvestigator of the Year" award could be presented to the most effective canine! Also, what would the legal charges be for violations; misdahydrant for inappropriate placement of urine or a Smellany for fecal indiscretions?

I agree that something needs to be done, and I say, "Let's stamp out the poop piles... NOW!"

Default I'am with you "SkyGuy"...

We could form a band of "Village-anties" and confront the poopertrators owner on our own terms!!! Fumar can be our leader.

Picture a mob patrolling the streets, armed with paper sacks...lighter fluid and a trusty Zippo !

We'll send out a scout to locate the front door and door bell button. Deliver the flaming parcel...hit the doorbell button...and RUN LIKE HELL !!!

Bet THAT will put a stomp to it!!!....errrr....STOP to it.

Ahhh the "Good ole' Days" (and dont tell me no one ever did it) !!

Strange, how history has a way of "Re-occuring".

Make the dog use your own yard.

Other threads here tell of homeowners without dogs having their grass ruined by pee, and some are too inconsiderate to pick up the dog logs.
