Do stuff with and for your neighbors


Stop the Poop!

A continuous problem since we moved into the neighborhood are (some) owners who are un-neighborly in terms of managing their dogs' poops. It would be sad if those (few) that are not complying to ruin it for all the considerate owners out there.

We should organize a #poopup where we all go around and pick up poop! How about next Saturday?

Good call, Efua. I picked up a few. It looks like some other folks had as well.

Efua, I'm too busy myself to do any hardcore leafletting, but if you leave a stack somewhere, I maybe could grab a few.

Kellyn, to clarify, did  it help with the poop or the off-leash walking? Can you upload a pic of one of the signs? Where/how did you get/make them?

I definitely encourage putting up signs to help stop the poop, Derrick.  I did that in my neighborhood in an area where people let their dogs off leash.  It absolutely helped!!

I'm also a dog owner, and a responsible one.  I find it absolutely disgusting that people don't pick up after their dogs.  Like Matt, I find myself picking up after others in addition to my own dogs. And I'm sorry, but snow is no excuse.  It almost seems to have been WORSE this winter.  I mean, I understand if - on occasion, after looking - someone can't find something in the snow or leaves.  But, it should be a rare exception.  It seems to have become the rule.  I'm close to posting "Curb your dog" signs on the SW Corridor where I walk, as well.  You're right: it's really giving the rest of us a bad name, in addition to being a nuisance for us all.  Wow, I'm really fuming about this.  Who knew?

I also own a dog and have seen poop all over my new JP neighborhood (near Doyles).  It drives me nuts.  I find myself picking up poop from other peoples' dogs.


I also have a dog park nearby - a neighbor told me people let their dogs poop there all the time and don't pick up after them - they think there's a crew to do this, but it's actually neighbors who can't deal with it.  They give us responsible dog owners a bad name.  There are even poop bags provided here and a trashcan so there's no excuse!

oh my goodness - just moved to the wenham st. area this past fall, and i've been flabbergasted by the dog poop everywhere! (i'm also a dog owner.) I'm glad it's not just me, but i'm also sad to see that this isn't just a winter thing around here. now that the snow has melted and there's really no excuse, i'm thinking of posting "please curb your dog" signs. Probably a waste of time, but maybe it will at least help me feel better. :)

Now that the snow has melted, we need to promote this group to stop the poop!

Actually for me it is the chicken bones. Forget the sanitary aspects, I am just curious about where they come from and who tosses them on the side walk. I am working with the assumption that sewer rats are dragging them from an illegal chicken slaughter house nearby.
