The Tenleytown listserv getting, uh, active Sunday/today with:
“Your Dog Sh*t on my Lawn
and I caught you on video tape! Hey ***hole! Its not bad enough that your dog shit on my lawn you looked around to see if anybody was watching.
Enjoy and please let him know he is welcome to stop by and pick up his dog shit whenever he wants!”
Hopefully this voice of reason prevails:
“We’re all adults here…
Could the complaint have been raised more tactfully? Of course.
But the complaint is a valid one, and the owner of the dog should be chastised; it just could have been done in a more PG way. I have little kids that love to play on our lawn and I would be really pissed (no up intended) if some dog did its business on my lawn, much less if the owner left it there. There are laws for a reason.
Anyway, I’d love to propose that we not spend the next 24 hours each chastising the other or picking fights. Tomorrow is the first day of Spring, so let’s all think happy thoughts.”
Ed. Note: But seriously, pick up the poop, man.
