Taking a Poo - Feedback Friday




Here is a little dog I know. He's little, he's cute, he is the apple of his human family's eye. His "mom" talks to him as if he is a real child. They watch the children get on the school bus together, then they discuss it. She rides with him in the front seat of the car. She takes him skiing. She is not me.

This little guy loves to take walks. He loves to "visit". He loves to go poo in every yard but his - Right in every other neighbor's front yard. Way up in the yard, almost by the front door. It's his way of saying "Hi, here I am! And to prove I was here, I'm going to go poo now!" He's cute that way.

His "mom" cleans up the poo immediately afterward with a poo baggie and they continue on their way.

Thoughts, comments, questions?

  1. As long as it's picked up...no problem at all. It's a DOG folks! I miss our puppy....;-(

  2. Is she embarrassed?
    when our dog poops I just pray no one is looking--I always clean it up, I just don't like for the dog to go at all. Yech!

  3. Our little dog does this, but not up close to the houses' front door. I pick it up once they go. There is no residual affect! lol Usually he goes in our yard, but occasionally he goes in others. I get embarrassed and hope the owners don't see. Saying that...our homeowners assoctiation does state, we are "suppose" to get permission from people before we allow our dog to go poo in someone's yard, but what can you do when the dog has to go? It really can't be enforced. Our dog IS on a leash, and does not go INTO the yard, just on the side. I see both sides of the story though...

    With this woman, I think she should have the dog on a leash and only allow it to go within like 6 ft. from the edge of the road? NOT by the front door! Again, at least she picks it up. a-)

  4. I meant to add, this is when he goes for a WALK, not just out the door to go poo.

  5. My [big] dog occasionally poops in the neighbors yard. Unfortunately for me my neighbor is my mother in law.

    Needless to say, I surely turn the other cheek and pretend I never saw a thing.

    Wicked, I know.

  7. It wouldn't bother me, if the dog went by the road, and the mess was picked up. I wouldn't want someone and their dog up by my house though, I think that's rude.

  8. As long as she picks it up (and doesn't leave the baggie flaming on your doorstep!), then no harm, no foul. I would suggest keeping the dog on a leash though...give her some excuse like it makes your dog go nuts or something. I would be annoyed if everyday this little dog was all up in my yard's business, whizzin' on everything ;)

  9. Like was echoed above, as long as the dog is a on a leash and the owner cleans up the mess right away, that's fine with me. Nothing is more irritating than stepping a pile of sh*t when I'm cutting the grass. So I appreciate the level-headed pet owners who walk their dogs and carry a pooper-scooper.

  10. Yuck. I say the outermost edge or boulevard. My kids will occasionally run outside without their shoes on. I know it's picked up (and thank you soooooo much for that ~ because so many don't), but there is the residual..... I know I know, my kids shouldn't be outside with out shoes on.... there are worse things in the grass....etc... I keep my dog off your front yard, keep yours off mine (especially by the front door) ~ no matter how darn cute ☺

  11. Please don't hate me everyone...but I don't get the dog thing...I think dogs are great and all, but will never own one and don't understand when they are treated as people...I am however VERY grateful when people clean up after the poo...we have a few neighbors that don't and it makes me ANGRY.

  12. Love puppies, dogs but when you let em go in my yard it irks meh! Even if they pick it up! Goodness, my kids play out there!:) There could be left overs!!!!!

  13. I looove my lab but I do NOT let him poo near someone's front door--ever! That is just rude. On the edge of the property FAR from the front door is acceptable. I don't care how 'clean' the pick up is...poo germs still linger. Yuck.

  14. Ehh, I don't think it's a big deal. At least it's not trash...right? Sure I think it's nice for people to pick it up (especially if it's a huge dog) and I do that too with my dog but I'm not gonna get in a tizzy if someone doesn't have a bag with them.

  15. I'm thinking that she's one of many, many others like her!

  16. I think it would be better if she'd leash up her dog to go closer to the street, but as long as she's cleaning it up, I guess there's not a whole lot you can say. :s

  17. For me, if the owner cleans it up, I don't care. But my tolerance may be partly because my dog is *extremely* picky about doing his business-- he won't do it on our lawn, period (we wonder if this was a trained habit before we got him), he really won't do it anywhere else either until he has found The Perfect Place, and even then we have to pray that no small noise occurs to distract him. So sincere apologies to any houses that may be on our walk route-- but if my dog starts his business-doing pacing ritual, as long as it's on grass, I am not about to stop him. I will do my very best to clean up, though!

    And isn't it nice to be the human, so your bathroom habits aren't a discussion topic? ;-)

  18. Our dog Travis always poos in our neighbor's yard when he gets out. (We live in the country though.) Luckily they don't care b/c they have 4 dogs. They think it's funny that he comes over to their house to do his business :-)

    I don't think it's a big deal that your dog poos in your neighbors' yards as long as you are picking it up.

  19. Yuck! yuck! yuck! I DO NOT want your dog's poo in my yard at all. Even if you pick it up it still leaves residue that can contain parasites and germs. You are lucky she picks it up, but that's all she does, she doesn't sanitize the area. If she spends so much time with her precious pooch she should maybe devote some of that time to properly training it. Dogs should be curbed to use the bathroom when walked in a residential neighborhood. Save the extension leash for the park. That's puppy manners 101.

  20. Good post. I've currently got an elephant sized poo on my front lawn. And I don't own a dog! And my neighbor will NOT be coming to clean it up either.

  21. I don't mind (even though it kinda gives me the shivers) as long as its picked up. What drives me nuts is our neighbor's dog that runs free and poos all over my yard. No one cleans it up - well, no one but me. Everytime I see, or smell, a new gift my head explodes. ;)

  23. I have 2 dogs that I walk on leashes and they are not allowed to stop and sniff the area to do their business until I tell them it's okay. I wait until we are at the farm land/non-residential area for that and I still pick it up. On occasion, my little one can't wait and so I have no choice but to stop, however, we're never even close to the front door and really, residue or not, it's by the road so it shouldn't matter (I do pick it up remember) since there's other yuckies anyway... having said that, my other neighbour lets her 3, sometimes 4 huge dogs roam our neighbourhood and poo wherever they please and it's rotten since my one dog is fearful (little) and they come running at us. Now I know them and they're super sweet, but when I didn't, I wrangled to freaking out dogs, 1 wee baby and 2 little kids and try to avoid anyone getting hurt... it was pathetic. I think it's just rude to have your dogs be able to go wherever they want. Just my 2 cents though. Having said that, accidents happen and the odd time is forgiveable! LOL

  24. We used to have neighbors that had a huge bloodhoud and the neighborhood was his to explore, he would come down our way and actually back up to some minature shrubs I had in my yard and poop right on them, in the process sometimes stepping on them. He also sometimes peed on them. Needless to say they did not survive a summer with him running loose and we had to dig them up and throw them away. I decided not to loose more shrubs, he was very friendly by the way.....I got a gift bag and very nicely picked up his calling cards, deposited them in the bag and then on my walk with MY dog on a leash and NOT peeing and pooping in their yard, I put a tag said something to the extent that we had enough organic fertilizer for our yard, and thanks so much for sharing but it was not needed nor wanted. I also signed my name. They laughed about it but he was contained to his yard for the rest of the summer.
