This Sheepshead Bay homeowner put up a sign that says, “Please Keep Dogs Off Lawn”. It might be working, because except for the empty Similac box, there was no other waste product (not even raccoon droppings, thank goodness) on the front lawn. That might be because it’s a raised platform or because the sign, with its handpainted block letters, is too cute to disobey.
These days, it’s nearly impossible to walk on the sidewalks without stepping into dog waste. No one seems to be cleaning up after their pets, so maybe we’ll have to start walking on lawns, since they may be the only safe place.
