/ neighbours have a new dog
In the past they have been very noisey, music at late times ect. 12 on a sunday night. So we stuck a note though their door, telling them to shut up. They didnt do anything. They seem to be quiet now after a sarcastic wireless name. I dont mind music and noise its just it was all the time. They are quiet now, apart from when they come in at 3pm but that cant be helped since old flats are noisey anyway, they are also upstairs. The late music has stopped so its ok. They seem perfectly reasonable, but i want to know where i stand with them if their dog is going poop in the garden.
If they don't then start posting the poops through the letter box ;-)
Ask politely first then, are they renting? if so tell them to sort it out or you'll contact the landlord.
Go for the ultimate sanction...change your wireless name again!
And take a dump outside their front door.
The fact the have been receptive to the noise issue without terror, they will likely be receptive to your asking them to clean it up, they probably just haven't given it a thought and need a point in the right direction.
If that fails, fling the pop at any air vents for their flat, preferably a low one so air is drawn in past it.
If it was me I think I'd like to quietly walk up behind the dog when it is pooping, and Tazer it, then just quietly walk away. And hey, don't give me any sh1t about it is not the dogs fault, that dog knows it is having a sh1t.
I'm actually a non-aggresive person, and I did say I'd only 'like to'.
To be honest if the neighbours complained I'd Tazer them as well.
Could always collect a few of the turds & take them round a neighbourly 'chocolate cream' cake?
Collect dog turds.
Wrap in newspaper.
Place on their doorstep.
Set fire to newspaper.
Ring their door bell.
(Obviously take a tazer and/or dog shit chocolate cake to cover all eventualities)
If they're new to dog ownership and they've been walking it they might not realise it's been using the garden as well as the park for its toilets.
Talking to them is the best bet. And remember it's not the dogs fault.
I'd become friends with the dog and encourage him/her to shit in their flat.

Tell that to my daft dog! he doesnt like to shit on walks, too exited playing fetch! ALthough we have a pretty damn big garden, so i think there ok with that maybe?
In reply to the OP, has it actually taken a shit? My dog sometimes looks like his shitting when hes not, as do female dogs? if the dog has, talk to them nicely about it, im sure they where 'just letting out for a wee' and the dog had other ideas!
Notes through the door and sarcastic wireless names!
Have you ever considered talking to your neighbours?
You say they're perfectly reasonable... So speak to them.
they are obviously not reasonable people.
> they are obviously not reasonable people.
cat owners are worse. their animals kill birds, frogs etc and they don't even try to collect outdoor doings.
Gorilla & lion owners...well, they can do whatever they want, I'm not stupid...
I think you underestimate the smell a cooked dog egg could make in both preparation of cake batter and eventual cooking of turd confection, both in your kitchen. I suspect your partner would have an issue with this.
I therefore propose an alternative. Mix said canine defecus with corned beef and put in a pie. Considering the stuff starts off like its been passed through someone already, nobody would be the wiser.
They might get the message
Very very cute, and slightly wire-haired? What make are they?
