Every day I'm in the city and I pass by at least 6-10 poop land mines. I saw a heaping pile the other day right on the edge of sidewalk ramp, right on the intersection of a very busy street. I have a feeling the A-hole that did this was just looking to mess with people.

Unfortunately, it's everywhere but I've never caught someone in the act not cleaning up after their dog. I have a feeling I'd flip out and say something to that person.

I'd like to hear from some of you folks that caught one of these people in the act and if you did something about it. Please share your story as I'd love to hear it.

I always picked up after my dogs. One time I was visiting the Jersey Shore when my dog had a larger than average movement back in an alley. I found that all I had to scoop it up was a dixie cup. Now I'm sunburned and my legs are chaffed from walking on the beach all day, so I come staggering and limping out of this alley with my pit bull and this giant log of shyte in a dixie cup, it looked like a big chocolate ice cream cone. These little kids just happened to be entering the alley when they witnessed this scene. They turned and ran away screaming.

I see people do that all the time but I never say anything, I just give them the side eye. One of my very irrational fears is that I tell someone to pick up their dogs poop and they pick it up, throw it at me and tell me to mind my own business.

All the time, but what are you going to do?

Maybe a few times calling someone out will get them to do the right thing, but these days you're playing with fire. Plenty of eegits are spoiling for a fight, so if you aren't ready to get into it, best leave well enough alone.

People (usually transplants) always walk their dogs away from their own property/building or around the block to do its business. Many native and other city residents do clean up after Fido. But you have plenty anti social thugs or suburbanites living in the city who haven't read the memo. They think who they are, and again unless you're willing to go a few rounds, best to let things go.

Since my lil dog isn't satisfied with pooping in one spot I always bring two plastic bags with me. I will admit though, there were a couple of times where her poop was really mushy/liquid and I'd nah the hell out of those instances if no one was looking, and never on anyone's lawn.

I remember knowing an old guy, friend to my mom, because he knew I was into dog sitting at the time he was the only one to mention to me about curbing our dogs. Like literally walk the dog along the curb. I had always thought "Curb your dog" meant to keep them on a short leash?

Finally caught the person who's dog defecated in front of my home. Yes. In front............
Caught him in the act. Made him pick it up and told him politely not to do that ever again
as a tenant slipped and fell hurting herself. ( A little fib goes along way )

It's not always dog poop...



But, on the topic at hand, I caught someone IN MY BUILDING once who let her dog go by the elevators on the first floor. She picked up the poop and I'm not sure if she had any intention of cleaning up the pee. After she ran into the elevator, I walked over to the front desk and told them that there was a mess to clean up and they should rewind the security tape two minutes to see the culprit.

Sometimes its more useful to explain smth to a person in a friendly manner. In this situation, it's dangerous to be rude, cause once you may find 'a bomb' not only in front of your home
