My Neighbor's Dog is Pooping on my Lawn. Now What? 101 Ways to Get Your Yard and Dignity Back by Pete Abilla

Description

Do you feel disrespected by your neighbors who take their dog poopy in your yard or on your lawn? Are you tired of dealing with difficult people and their pets? Are you reminded daily by large piles of crap on your grass of the challenging interpersonal relationship you have with the people that live on your street? Do you deal with anger issues, depression, and are super duper confused as to why such a seemingly small problem can be so complicated and have such a massive hold on your life? Then this book is for you.


BOOK EXCERPT:

We had just moved into our new house in 2006, when we were immediately met with an interesting challenge: our neighbor freely takes their dog poopy on our front yard.

Now what?

Well, like any spineless male in their early 30’s, I wrote a blog post about it.

What happened next was magic: I received hundreds of comments – advice about what to do with a neighbor who takes their dog poopy in others’ yards. I knew quickly that I had hit a nerve because the volume of responses was so high and the tone of their responses was full of emotion.

And now, six years later, that blog post still receives comments and advice from readers from around the world.

It became very clear to me: dealing with dog poop in our yards from dogs that are not our own is a universal problem.

It’s been said that Math is the common language across all cultures. I’d venture to say that poopy in our lawn is a common experience across all cultures, religions, and geographies.

But there’s a backstory here: That original post became somewhat of a channel for people to vent and share their own experiences about dog poo and their neighbors. What I came to realize is that it wasn't just dog poo and property rights at stake here, but our overall notion of dignity, respect, and basic human decency were being threatened.

In a way, that article became an online Dr. Phil show – about dogs and poopy in the yard, but also about feeling victimized, anger, revenge, salvation, vindication, and what it means to be a human.

So, I present to you the advice of many random and emotional people about what to do with neighbors that have no regard about where their dog goes poopy. As you read, keep in mind that it’s not just advice you’ll be reading, but you’ll be presented with their personal stories and experiences.

This book is a compilation of the best advice from that article originally written in 2006. At best, I hope you find the advice here helpful; at worse, I hope you’ll read something that will make you laugh.
