Great title, right? But it’s true, someone has been pooping outside our house regularly and of course I am the victim of their poo.
I purchased an additional camera to add to our home security system. Then I complained and whined to Leon to put up the camera in the tree…..this took me a few short days because I have this trick mastered. And the following day. we caught him on the night vision camera. I couldn’t see the owner so well, but I could see this little cutie:
Of course that’s not the actual dog who is doing the pooping, but he looks like this dog. He looks like the Petey from the show, Little Rascals. A natural home remedy to stop dogs from pooing on your property is to put pepper (yes shakeable black pepper) around your property. But I love dogs and I wouldn’t want to pepper a dog (plus I love pepper and why should I waste my pepper?)
So the next day, I am on the lookout for the Petey-look-alike. And I see him and I did a very Brooklyn-like thing. I opened up my window and holla’d from the top floor. “Heyyyy Duuuuuude your dog keeps pooing in front of my house.” The dudes response: “Oh my dog doesn’t go to the bathroom outside.”
I say, “Duuuude I have to show you something. Wait right there.”
At this point, if the guy had a half of brain, he should have taken off with his pooping dog. I get downstairs, grab a coat and bring my ipad outside. I introduce myself and he tells me his name. Now that we are friends, I can show him some videos.
Oh and Mr. Smarty Pants gave me a Brooklyn response……”it’s illegal to tape someone without their permission.” BAHAHAHAHA that’s funny. I love discussing what it legal and illegal to video. No duuuuuude it’s illegal for your pooch to poo over and you not to clean it. So yes your dog does poo outside so start cleaning.” The dude was not happy, but I went and got my dog and he chilled out a bit because he liked my dog. And we made nice Brooklyn chit-chat.
Although he didn’t say it, I know I won’t be seeing any more poo down this way.
