    So true. My wife brought Dierks to one of our pregame radio shows last fall. Big man took a crap right in the middle of the road where the band marches to get to the stadium. Luckily, she had a bag.

    2 bags for every dog you're walking. Not hard, get pockets.

    In all serious Linden, this all comes down to the dog owner. Any responsible dog owner should either carry a bag with them at all times or if you don't have one, go back and pick it up. Sounds like you have some idiots around you that make the rest of us look bad.

    Re: Keeping Dogs off Propery (yes it is the offseason)

    Was raking yesterday and came across an occasional dog poopie. I figure they are from my neighbor’s geriatric beagle. He’s my old buddy so I give him a pass. Seriously old little doggy though, I remember him stealing gloves when my buddies and I were laying block for my house addition. That was 2000.

    Amen to this. I have a corner lot so I have a lot of sidewalk traffic. I was out mowing for the first time this weekend and was pretty ****** to see how much dog poop there was out there. Come on dog owners!

    Re: Keeping Dogs off Propery (yes it is the offseason)

    I think your only recourse is to stop the dog when you see it on your lawn and tell you how him/her being there makes you feel and how you and he/she need to have open lines of communication going forward with regards to where he drops a dookie. Dogs are reasonable creatures, they'll listen.

    Re: Keeping Dogs off Propery (yes it is the offseason)

    2 ladies were walking their dog behind my house last spring on trail. I was upstairs fixing washing machine when I happened to notice them out window. Dog walked right up to my fence, left a steaming pile and walked away. She walked up to it, looked around, then left it there and walked away. I started pounding on window and she looked up and they both started walking faster. ****** me off to no end.
    Then yesterday I was mowing my front yard and walked right through one that looked like it was left by a bear. Seriously people, its just one of the responsibilities of owning a dog.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    See post #2 (appropriately) in this thread. If your attitude is that you don't need to pick up after your dog, you should be executed. Anyone with that attitude should not be allowed to raise kids, vote, drive, or use any other resources that could be utilized by responsible people.

    Re: Keeping Dogs off Propery (yes it is the offseason)

    Hide in the bushes dressed in camo, facepaint, Rambo headband, shirtless with a machete and patiently wait for someone to leave their dog's **** on your sidewalk. Then jump out screaming at them to pick it up.

    It takes patience, but people will think twice about not picking up after their dogs around your house. In fact, nobody will ever walk by again.


    read this post quickly - it might not last long

    My dog will occasionally be a triple-bagger. I don't know how a beagle has that much poo inside of him sometimes.

    And before you go all Clint Eastwood "Get off my lawn" you probably should post a warning!
