There's been a huge increase in the number of pet dogs in our neighbourhood over the last year, with an equivalent increase in the amount of dog poo plastered all over the grassy area where JD and other kids used to play. I've had a go at a few of the dog owners who make no effort to clear up after their pooches, but I just get shrugs or embarrassed smiles ("strange foreigner!"). So today I made a dozen signs and asked the management office if I could put them up. Shrugs from them. And this morning, JD and I went poo-hunting and labelled the stools, much to the bemusement and, in a few cases, congratulatory thumbs-up of the locals. I took some photos and went back to the management office to show them how much was there and what I'd done. Shrugs again. I doubt the signs will be still there in a few days or that the dog owners will show any more respect, but you can but try. It made me feel better anyway!
