Last Friday during Listeners on the Loose, we received a text from a Rock-A-Holic asking a question regarding where to let his dog do its business. 

They asked if it was acceptable to let their dog “go” in a housing neighborhood as long as it gets picked up. Personally I don’t let my dog go on the lawn, I let her “go” on the common grass area by the side walk.

I don’t know what the official courtesy is but I have always found it a little rude to let your dog do its business on someone else’s lawn; that’s why the common grass area by sidewalks seems like the right choice. 

By the way, letting the animal “go” in someone’s yard or on the sidewalk, and not cleaning it up is B.S. No one likes to pick up animal action especially if it doesn’t belong to their pet.

A while back, I got into a fight with one of my neighbor’s over their dog’s droppings. They would let their dog run around on it’s own and it would go in my yard but they wouldn’t clean it up. When I politely asked them to scoop after the dog, they got offended and said they were going to set up cameras to prove it wasn’t their dog! Because of that, they won’t even wave when they see me. Hell, is it so wrong to ask that people be respectful of other people’s property?

Time to rename that old “Mr. Roger’s” song to “Wish you WEREN’T my neighbor.”
