Shaming the Delinquent Neighbor and their Dog

I was at the playground with my daughter a few hours ago. We live in a townhouse complex with a playground. Generally speaking, it is a fabulous place to live and for the most part, the neighbors are great.

As I was saying, we were at the playground when a black chihuahua came sauntering down the hill without his/her person. The dog squatted and deposited, then sauntered back up the hill. Still no accompanying human in sight.

Unfortunately I’m not sure exactly which neighbor belongs to said dog. Dogs are not permitted to wander off leash in the complex. Owners are also required to pick up their pets leavings. Strike one, strike two.

I ask you, what would you do?

  • Post a “You’re welcome for picking up your black chihuahua’s poop off the yard” note on the community board with a plastic bag of the poop in question?
  • Complain to the strata council.
  • Wander around the complex until you find the dog owner and attempt to deliver the bag of poop personally.
  • Blog about it.
  • All four.
  • Some other more creative, poop related, neighbor shaming activity.

Not that I would do any of those things. I’m too classy for that shit.

I keep my high heels and jewelry at my office because there's no point in having them at home. I love Mondays because I can return to the world of adults, go to the bathroom alone and have nearly uninterrupted conversations with others.

  1. I think you should make a poop sculpture in the middle of the complex and title it “Shame”. Then set up a video camera to see who walks by it looking embarrassed. Then deliver the sculpture to the most embarrassed looking person… but that’s just me… (also btw I own a small black chihuahua and have been known for letting it wander around without a leash. Although I would totally pick up her poop, so I don’t think it was me.)
