smelling those trees. my neighboor is dumb and she dosen't know the
words, make the dog wet in proper area.

green, about a foot tall, and gets the point across nicely.

Maybe that'd work.


OK, I would like to know where all the dog walkers that live in apartments
do
let their dogs pee when walking the dogs. I am curious about this. Actually
puzzled.

I can certainly understand and see the whole bag for poop thing that should
be done wherever
anyone goes with their dogs.

But the peeing part and walking the dog that *may* be inclined to pee every
20' is something I am baffled about.

People around here put up fencing when they want to protect the flowers
around the trees. Most dog walkers here (mostly condo dwellers, which is akin
to apartments) try to respect such flowerbeds (or sometimes they've other
plants there). Other trees, not fenced, are fair game, and these outnumber
the fenced trees 20-1.

But I also saw a few posts yesterday that mentioned grass and peoples lawns.

Of course trees on property and flower beds would not be fair game at all
or very inconsiderate. But lawns?

So I am still puzzled. Are people teaching their dogs to pee on the cement
sidewalks instead. If so how?

When I take Moogli for a walk, on the way out (when he is most likely to
leave a large puddle behind) I make sure that we are going by a route which
will take us along sidewalks that are in front of other apartment buildings
or stores. When he goes #2, I always pick it up. I only walk him through
housing projects after he is pretty well empty.

Oh, I dunno. I think it is unrealistic to think dogs won't urinate on lawns.
All sorts of other creatures do so (squirrls, rabbits, whatever).

What does make sense is if someone is trying to grow new lawn, and might want
to fence that off, or if there's a particular spot that is dying from over
ahem watering...

Patton says he is "the most mercurial dog guru on
the planet." FYI, from m-w.com: Mercurial:
characterized by rapid and unpredictable
changeableness of mood; synonym, see INCONSTANT

Yup. If I see a place that has recently put down sod, or where there are
kids playing, I make sure that Moolgi is on a short leash on the sidewalk
as we go by there. As for existing lawn, we have a huge grub problem up
here that is killing a lot of grass, so it is hard to tell what is done by
dogs, and what is done by grubs.

But the thing is elderly dogs or even my Murphy was inclined to pee/mark
every few steps. I of course would never allow a flower bed or a persons
tree but a lawn. Well, I am very guilty of this and I suppose I should be
ashamed of being inconsiderate.

But poop would never be left in anyone's lawn or place.
