Two of our neighbors' dogs have been coming into our yard to poop. Mikey, aka Catdog (because hubby first though he was a cat. He's a black Pom and looks like a big, fuzzy cat) is an occasional visitor. Usual his owner stays outside with him and chases him if he wanders outside of his yard. Hubby recently witnessed him taking a dump in our yard, which finally explained the mysterious little turds that kept appearing overnight. The other dog lives a couple of houses down and is exceptionally well-behaved. His owners leave him in their unfenced back yard and usually he stays put...which is a helluva lot more than I can say for Lily. If she even thinks I have dropped the leash, she takes off like a bat out of hell. Hubby has gone home for lunch the past 2 days, and on both days the dog has trotted over to our back yard, taken a shit smack-dab in the middle, and trotted back home to be let inside.

Hubby mentioned this to me last night and we debated on telling our neighbors. We decided not to since we hope to have a fence up sometime in the next eon, and we really don't want to risk burning bridges with neighbors we only know by sight. Our yard also has a lot of shit from our own dog, so what's the point of potentially pissing off the neighbors? Although Lily does have the manners to shit at the end of the property so we don't end up with land mines in unexpected places.
