pot - kettle - black
Not in the least. I'm merely hurling shit at this stupidly shitty
subject. As with most of the "neighbor problems" shit that gets
'dropped' here, the majority stem from some little shit that's too
chickenshit (in this case dogshit) to approach the shitbag neighbor in
the first place.
It's a shitty job but somebody has to do it.
oh, and if you don't like it - eat shit
then the poor thing was getting really crappy, cheap food. even with good
food, my dog's piles are too large to scoop, so i have to catch it.
and i'm not talking about the actual pile size. i'm talking turd diameter.
the exit hole of a cocker spaniel is much smaller than that of a great dane.
if they're both fed the same food, the great dane will not only have more,
due to being fed more, but the diameter will be larger.
well, i guess a hose would be needed. but i wouldn't get too upset with
diarrhea, as long as they have a poopie bag on them, thereby showing that
they probably pick it up regularly. diarrhea isn't normal, and it happens.
Me again. Just to clarify a few points. The neighbor is walking his dog
on a leash and walking on to my property to let his dog do his business.
Most of the time it's just piss, but on occasion he leaves a present.
Either way, I have a problem with this clown feeling HE can just walk on my
property. Never mind the audacity of letting his dog use my yard like a
bathroom. He is trespassing as soon as he's told not to return. I do not
have to post the land.
Unfortunately, he does not come at the same time every day or I'd just sit
out and wait for him so I could tell him to knock it off as it's just plain
With regards to people saying it's vandalism to return his dog mess, that's
just pure nonsense. I'm not going to throw it at his house or car. I'd
put it in his yard or driveway. Or, I still like my original thought of
putting it in a bag and handing it to him in person.
He's just a jerk and I do want to find the perfect way of letting this guy
know it and, ultimately, have him stop what he's doing.
There is no "perfect" way to deal w/ a jerk, but the first step is to
knock on the door an politely ask for him to refrain from the behavior
in question--the other jerks whose first reaction is to resort to
equally offensive, rude behavior are a prime reason for eventual
lawsuits or retaliatory actions over such mundane issues.
If a request doesn't suffice, then more aggressive steps can be
followed, but it's almost assured that an initial agressive action will
only provoke an even more aggressive reaction that quite likely would
spread to other areas in spite...
imo, ymmv, $0.02, etc., ... :)
Thank goodness we <have> no neighbors...
OK, I'm having a hard time envisioning that. You mean you reach under the
dog's butt and catch the stuff in your (hopefully gloved) hand? Or the dog
wears a net on his ass? Or what?
I gotta think that a shovel is easier...
You're waaaaaaay too interested in this.

Like others have said, try talking to him first.
If that doesn't help:
Do you have a fenced back yard, garage or somewhere you could hold the
dog while you call animal control to pick him/her up as a stray? If
the dog is in your yard unattended, bait it in with some tasty, smelly
morsel of food.
After the owner has to take a couple of trips to the dog pound and pay
the fine he may keep a little closer eye on the mutt.
One other thought;if you have the person on videotape leaving the crap on
your property,it's a powerful tool to SHOW the person,and tell them you
will show it to police or a judge as proof of vandalism of your
property;that alone may make them stop.
You also have solid proof of exactly -who- is doing it.
No mistakes,no doubts.
