Angry Grr! Littering dangers--aka use a trash can, people!

Venting time! We live on the main street leading into our subdivision, and I'm always having to be alert to dangerous stuff on the ground when I take our dogs out for walks or potty breaks. First, of course, there's the doofuses (or would it be doofi?) who don't clean up after their dogs, forcing me to be on the lookout in order to prevent my three from grabbing a "snack". Then there's the strange and potentially dangerous assortment of doggie culinary delights we've run across lately...chewed gum (a possible xylitol danger!, if it's the sugar free type), a half eaten peanut butter sandwich (I have a potentially life threatening peanut allergy, so that one was kind of scary!), cigarette butts, a fun sized candy bar (chocolate!), and the oddest find lately--2 blue marble sized bath oil beads! This is generally a nice, family oriented neighborhood, and yet I've literally seen people throw stuff out of their window as they drive by! (I'm assuming that the bath beads must've blown out of someone's overturned trash can though, because come on!--who's going to go around tossing scented bath products out the window!?). Well, I don't want my furbabies vomiting up bath oil (even if it would be slightly lilac scented) and I sure as heck don't want them consuming toxic-to-dogs stuff like sugar free gum or chocolate! Plus I'm tired of almost every walk consisting of "Drop it!" over and over! I'm thinking of sending an email (less pissy and more professional than this long winded rant though) to our homeowners association, asking that they put something about littering in the next neighborhood newsletter, but I doubt it will make much difference. In the meantime, I'm apparently going to have to serve as some sort of one-woman clean-up crew on most every walk. Ok, venting complete! (and thanks for "listening").

I feel you. We live near lots of restaurants that serve chicken and ribs, and there are always bones everywhere! I am forever digging them out of Frida's mouth in a panic because she's still kind of spotty with her "Leave it!" and "Drop it!" commands.

That is awful! We have a fenced back yard so Barney and Green get to run and play there with their friends from the neighborhood. I feel very fortunate that even when we go for a walk we do t have to deal with any of that.

It is so sad that people have to be so ignorant and careless. I would thank a homeowners association would do something about that,I would send the letter. I have seen on TV them getting in an uproar over bushes someone put around their house.

Oh,no! I think littering can't be stopped tho....ive seen so many things on the ground when I'm around the bfs,place esp. Because its more apartment oriented there....one time I saw a bunch fish heads....fluffin weirdos! Whole bagels...cold pizza slices...summer times its usually ice cream of iceys all splattered about. I'm happy none of mine nibble on other dogs poops...those are majorly disgustin there esp. When they come from larger breeds...dinosaur poops all around!

Our subdivision is the same I would think that people would at least have some respect for where they call HOME. Nope I think it is worse I also brought the subject up at our HOA meeting and believe it or not my yard was then littered more and my home was egged!!! I could not believe that GROWN people would act like children. I went to the HOA after this and I was told they could do nothing that it a police matter. Thanks for nothing!!! I could not even walk my puppy in my own yard until it was fully vaccinated because people let their animals run free and who knows if they have been vaccinated. I am not mad at the animals I am mad at the people who don't care about their animals health or where abouts SAD I moved into a subdivision thinking it would be much better but sadly disappointed. I am now trying to sell and get out but no one is going buy in a neighbor with a bad rep(

Jackie, I am so sorry you had to go through that! That is just ridiculous that grown adults would act so horribly!!

I hear ya! I live on a dirt road surrounded by woods and lots of hunters go down the road and young teenagers to, uh, I don't wanna know.. anywho, apparantly because it's an isolated road people think it's fine to throw beer cans, cigarette butts, and all other paraphanalea (don't know if I spelled that right LOL) I take Ava and Boss for their daily walk and usually have to bring a grocery bag to pick up the trash so that they don't try to grab any of it. Boss has the stomach of a whale and typically doesn't eat random objects so I'm not as much worried about him as I am Ava, she's still a pup so she likes to sample all sorts of things! Honestly, since most of the land around the road is mine I have considered putting up a NO LITTERING sign, probably won't do much but may help people think about it before they do it!
