Plus, the beach goers would chuck rubbish in your garden. It got worse when they built a sodding restaurant. A right shithole of a place.
I saw a news report at the weekend about Aids and how Saskatchewan seems to be developing it's own strain. The camera was filming a guy sweeping up used needles and crap from a local park. I have never seen so many, what a dump! I would hate to live near there!

(sorry nothing to do with what you said, just thought I would mention it )

Why did you have a similar problem?

Damn Canadians are just too damn nice. Can you believe no-one ever complained they all just put up with the dogs sh1ting on their lawns for years!

The only problem we have in the apartment gardens has been homeless people shitting in the bushes once in a while. That should stop when i catch one. Oh and Coyote poo every now and again.

It's shocking how many dog owners don't pick up after their dogs on the seawall in Vancouver or in the dog parks. Bloody horrible

No, enjoy the roaming dogs, the way the locals do. No point in emigrating if you don't want to experience a different way of life.

There's the problem again, a lack of integration. Take your shoes off at the door and it's not a problem

Default Re: Don't you just love your neighbours!!

There is a path at the back of my garden (new subdivision) which people use to walk kids, dogs etc. A couple of weeks ago, my wife saw a woman pick up after her dog, then lob the baggy into the bushes. I'm on a mission to find her and return the (now fetid) contents of the bag. Unbelievable! Worse than just not picking up her dog shit, she's added littering a communal area to the mix.
