My neighbor lets his dogs poop in our yard

August 13, 2013

It’s the second Christmas miracle this year. Yes, both of my children are asleep at the same time. I was going to tweet about it or something, but then I thought that I’d jinx it, so instead, I ran to the kitchen and poured a glass of wine and came over to say, “Hi.”


Here’s what’s on my mind: Why does my neighbor let his dogs poop in our yard?

The front yard, or "crime scene," if you will.

The front yard, or the “crime scene,” if you will.

Seriously. I mean, he’s got to know that I know that those giant poops in the grass are not from my Chihuahua. He knows this, right? And when I “catch” him letting his dogs poop in the yard (aka I pull in the driveway as his dogs are pooping in the yard), he always cleans it up. But then I find big poops. It’s a conundrum. Does he think if we don’t see it happen then it didn’t happen? There needs to be witness to his dogs’ defecation? Maybe he’s playing mind games. Should I put the poop back in yard? Just over the property line? I’m not really sure where the property line is exactly, but I could make an educated guess. Would he know that I put the poop back in his yard, or would he think, “Why did I let the dog poop where it’s supposed to?” I cannot make sense of the situation. What do you think?

Okay, well, I’m going to soak up the silence for a while. Hope you’re having a baller Tuesday.
