Greetings Citizen!

Please stop letting your dogs poop in my driveway.  Or you know, pick it up.  This also goes for my front lawn.  That is all.  Carry on.

Yep, I agree. I hate seeing poop in her driveway. Actually, any driveway or sidewalk for that matter. Stuff like that should be left in the Beach.
I have to say... while taking a leisurely stroll in the sun on Queen street t'other day, I myself had to do the Parisian Sidewalk Sidestep around many a turd. Are dogs walking themselves these days? There certainly hasn't been enough snow this year to camouflage what's going on. So, what's the deal? Maybe it's the widespread (and very eco-responsible) use of reusable grocery bags. People can't seem to fork out the 5 cents to bring home a poop bag. Hm?
Not that it will stop the problem, but as a dog owner I always take more bags than I know I'm going to need and if there happens to be any of the offensive material in the vicinity of my dogs' waste I pick it up too. These days it's frozen anyway therefore easy to pick up...and odourless. So I encourage all dog owners to pick up after your dog and the less responsible dog owners' dogs as well. Not a solution, but our neighbours will be grateful.
In all honesty, I would like to take a moment to thank you for that. You're really takin' one for the team, Karl. I admit I'm just not brave enough to pick up foreign poo. I'm too busy cleaning up all the garbage that floats into my garden from the garage down the street... but I won't get into that.
But truly... I thank you, my shoes and my boots and front door rugs thank you! Too bad there aren't more dog owners like you.
I'm not AT ALL excusing this behaviour -- failing to scoop the poop -- but I've seen one way it happens, and that is inattention from the human due to, you guessed it, talking on a phone! Handheld or Bluetooth, either one means the human's focus is not on the dog. This is wrong. It's wrong not only because it can lead to unscooped poop but also because walking the dog is a time for human-dog interaction. Sure, your dog might seem to be ignoring you while filling her nostrils with the pungent odours of other dogs' pee, plant matter and one hates to think of what else. But as the leashholder, it's your job to be present in every way for your dog. Don't wreck it by talking on the phone.

Another scenario also due to inattention, is walking the dog offleash and getting too far ahead of your dog and not realizing a poop has occurred. Have seen this often on the boardwalk where the human's having a vigorous power walk, and an older dog, no longer able to keep up, is lagging far behind. Sheesh! Walk with your dog!
I hereby give you my vote to yell at them, cell phone or not, to kindly remind them that poop trumps phone. I'm sure they will do a "oh, right!" and get right to it.

Speaking of garbage, I often see people littering in the city, like nobody is watching. I can't believe people actually do that. I've lost faith in this city.

I feel your pain. Dog poop killed two of my shrubs. Now I stand guard when I see certain neighbours walk by with their pooch. I wish some dog owners had manners.
We've gotten in the habit of giving our large dog access to the front porch so he can bark at neighbourhood dogs when they stop take their evening $hit on our lawn.
It seems to be working, the large urine soaked brown patch at the bottom of the lawn is starting to heal itself.
We're getting used to the dirty looks from ceratin dog walkers, I guess they're upset that their dogs can no longer have peace & quiet while visiting their fav "dumping" ground.

Leslieville Local Business Marketing - 10 ways to use TheLeslieviller.com

When I launched this site in early 2009, one of the compelling reasons for doing so was that I was struck by how many of the businesses in Leslieville are locally owned and operated.  Another big observation was (and still is) how proud most…
