especially when they are one in the same. Let me set the stage for you. A week or so ago I was getting the mail (we had just gotten home) and a woman, her teenage daughter and their two unleashed dogs (the woman carried the leashes) were walking down the street. Both dogs ran into my yard. The woman did nothing to catch them. I on the other hand started shooing them out of the yard.
The woman looks at me and says, "Um those are my dogs." I said, "Um yeah so get them out of my yard. I don't even let my dog pee or poo in my front yard." Wouldn't that be simple? So ever since then, the teenage girl (who made fun of me as they walked on down the street) continues to bring the dogs down my street.
Not only that she today intentionally let one off the leash and G and I were right in the yard. She watched me as she walked up the street and then waved. Smart ass. So I told her that she needed to quit letting her dogs poo and pee on my yard. She said, "They aren't hurting you." HUH? What the hell do I care if they "aren't hurting me"? First off they could bite G. They could. No one really knows if they would or not. She can hope. Second, they are in my yard!! I said something to the effect that she has no respect and shows no responsibility and she said, "I don't care."
I said, "It is obvious you don't care and that you have no respect for any one's property. You don't pay rent or mortgage." Then I very maturely called her a "little shit." Yes, in front of G and I explained to G that only "little shits" like that girl let their dogs run around off leash. I am ready to set poison out for those dogs in my yard (and don't think I wouldn't do it if I could guarantee only hers would get it). I found a huge pile of dog poo in my yard today. Clean it up please!! It pisses me off!! Responsible pet owners keep dogs in fences or on leashes out of people's yards whom the owners don't know or even do know.
I think there is an ordinance in the city to keep leashes on dogs. I don't have a big front yard so dog poo takes up some space and it is nasty and germ-y. I don't want dog poo in the front yard. That is why Clementine is relegated to the back yard and kept in a fence! Then to have the smart alack teenager, I just want to smack her!!
