Dogs, Dogs, Dogs, Dog Poop

You know how I've always complained about my neighbors and their dogs? One neighbor, has 3 dogs (big dogs) that she lets roam like they're kids. She gets home from work, sets her dogs loose in the front yard...and watches them poop all over our circle! Mainly in my yard...even my backyard! (that's the first thing on the list of things to get...a fence) I hate it. The other people in my circle have 2 pit bulls/boxers and another dog. They are totally neglected, they bark and try to get through the fence when the kids play...they've even tried digging under the fence, which we have had to barricade with rocks. Well, today someone called the city in regards to the dogs. They came to the circle to warn the "roaming dogs" owner and next time they will get a fee, and then they are also doing a "well check" on the pit bulls, to make sure they aren't being abused, which could make them angrier dogs. I truly believe that if they ever get out, a child, or adult for that matter, will die, or be seriously injured from those dogs. I'm so excited! I hope they all get fines! I'm so sick of the dogs in my neighborhood! I have put up with it now for 15 months. NO MORE! I'm glad somebody had the guts to nip it in the butt! It's kind of embarrassing to live in this circle. It is infamous for the dumb dog people. I am just so excited not to have poop in my yard anymore! I'll be honest, I've never scooped it, Troy has. But, I have threatened to start flinging it across the circle to the owners home. Hopefully it won't come to that. I guess I would then be a poo flinger. Nice. Well, just had to share my JOYOUS news with everyone! Oh, did I mention that I was the one who called the city? Hee...hee...

It WAS you! I knew it!!! I am glad you stepped up to the plate, even though I think you have called animal control before, right? If those dogs are neglected and mean, that's scary for your kids so good job!!!

HA!!! I've called animal control twice myself on dogs roaming all over the neighborhood. I have no tolerance for poorly cared for animals. And guess what I discovered today that was revealed when the snow melted? My own precious pile of dog poo. Grrrr.

HIGH FIVE JEN!
There is nothing I hate more than roaming dogs...oh and barking dogs that wake your baby.
I hope you don't have to become a "poop flinger" but I actually think that would be hilarious watching you do that :) I chuckled imagining it!

I think the saying is "nip it in the bud" but butt works!

Whew hoo! That would make me so angry. I'm glad you're taking steps to clean up the poor behavior of the dog owners and protect your family. I'm sure you are not the only one in the circle thrilled that you made the call.

I said 'butt' cause I was talking about poop....poor pun, I guess.

I knew it was you that called...right on!! You should join the "poo flingers" club...you feel so much better! There's no way dogs can get in our back yard...so I'm pretty sure that the neighbors throw it in our yard. Gross!! Once we had our garage open and the dogs came and peed on our car and then ran into the house since the door was open. I FREAKED out!! I hate dogs!

Hey when I was a kid flinging dried up doggy poo was a sport! We just imagined we were golfing!

You had me fooled. I wondered who would have been so brave to do that. I should have known it was you. You're so great at taking matters into your own hands. Way to take charge. That's really too bad. I live in a place where dogs come before children. Seriously, it drives me bonkers.

Oh I can so feel your dog poop pain! So in addition to animal control I called the health department because the poop stunk so bad. I hate having neighbors with dogs! Anyone want to buy a house?

I forgot to mention that we have and do throw the poop back in their yard! Hee Hee!
