    Thumbs down Dog pooping near my yard alone


    One of my neighbors has two bulldogs. I know this because they go potty in the area beside my condo. It is not my yard, just green space wiht bushes and trees. She usually goes out with one of her dogs and a shovel to scoop poop, but today a dog went out alone and gave me a close-up view of canine feces. Of course the homeowners association requires cleanup when this happens, so this is a rule violation. I only know where the dogs live, not their owner. Should I do anything?
    Keep your cats safe during the holidays. They deserve a meowy Catmas.

    Unless you're patrolling the grounds working for the homeowner's association, then you shouldn't get involved in enforcing the rules. Or....you can get a plastic bag and go outside and pick it up on your own.

    Have you ever cleaned up after someone else's dog?

    Many times. If I'm picking up after my dog and there's a pile someone else left next to it, I'll pick up both. Lots of people do that at the dog park. When I take him to regular parks in the neighborhood or on hiking/biking trails around the city, I'll do it too sometimes. No reason not to, especially if it's in a place that bothers you like your courtyard. So, did the owner come back and clean it up, or is it still there?

    I don't live in a courtyard. The Courtyards is just the name of my HOA.

    Someone else had a job to do on the outside of that window (looked to me like caulking the frame) right where the dog pooped. Yuck.

    So I guess you never picked it up yesterday, but it still is bothering you?

    The poop itself does not bother me. It is the fact that nobody went out with the dog, knowing there is a poop cleanup rule.
