Neighbor dog pooping on my lawn
My husband had an altercation (if you can call it that, considering my husband couldn't get one word in edgewise) with our neighbor this weekend over his dog pooping in our yard. Here's the story. I hope someone has some advice:
I'm living next to the low class neighbor from Redneckville. We've lived in our neighborhood of new homes for two years now. From day one, we've had problems with this guy allowing his two dogs to poop on our lawn. He's the type of guy who leaves his dead X-mas tree on his front lawn until early summer and dumps his grass clippings over the fence onto the property behind him.
Well, they eventually got rid of one dog and fenced in the back yard. But...we share a 15-foot wide strip of grass between our driveways in front, and the his wife continually lets the dog poop there instead of letting him out in the back yard. If she sees us coming around the corner she'll yell at the dog, but otherwise she let's him do his thing on our lawn.
My husband has been shoveling it back into their yard. This weekend as he was doing this, some of it landed on the neighbor's driveway, and my husband left it there. When the neighbor came home and saw the poop he went ballistic, claiming it wasn't from his dog, loudly spewing out profanities at my husband, threatening to call the police on him, and then threatening to beat his a#$#$. My husband couldn't even get one sentence in. I tried to get the guy to talk about the problem with us, but he would have nothing to do with it.
It's obvious the poop is from his dog...it was found 30 feet into our property right between our two garages - right where the dog usually goes. There are no strays in this neighborhood. This happened Friday night, and now I feel so uncomfortable living next to them. Does anyone have any ideas on how to deal with a problem like this? We plan to move next Spring, but until then what can I do?
