I don't crap in front of my neighbor's front yard, so I don't see why they think it's okay to bring their dog and crap in front of ours. Here in the city, there are strict laws on picking up after your dog. You can get a ticket / fine for not doing so. However, here in Staten Island, the rules seem to be a lot more relaxed because there seems to be more rude offenders of people who don't curb their dog. Every morning it seems one of the neighbors keeps bringing their dog to our house and allowing them to poop in front of our fence. They might think this is technically "the street" but the grass in front of our fence is part of our lawn and taken care of by us. We mow it and we water it. Therefore, it's so rude that some dog owners think it's okay for them to allow their dog to crap in front of our yard and not pick up after them. The smell is extremely foul, so we end up having to pick it up. The hubs uses a shovel to discard it into our outdoor garbage can. If I wanted to pick up dog crap all day, I would have a dog!! So I made this pretty sad looking sign to put on our fence. I hope they get the idea. They are so lucky that I have not seen the offender yet, because I'll have to follow them home and have the poop returned to sender.
