Hi All, I'm new to the forum,just signed up today. I have a bit of a problem with dog hating neighbours and it's evolved into something absolutely ridiculous. A year ago I recieved a call from the Animal Control services stating they had recieved a complaint about my dog not being on his leash. Once the complaint was investigated,it seemed the proof was a photo of me hooking my dog to his leash about 8ft in front of my house on the public sidewalk. Well the animal control officer was pissed about responding to such a bogus call but advised me to hook up my dog before leaving the house,"just to keep the idiots off my back". Now I've recieved a standard letter from animal control saying they received a complaint about the smell of dog poop that is very rarely left in my backyard,as well as a letter from the landlord stating the nieghbours claim that their balcony is unuseable because of the smell. The thing is,it does'nt stink! It can be spotted from my neighbours balcony about 20ft away and 10ft above ground level,but we are talking about 1-2 poops that are sometimes left for a couple hours. Tank eats dry food and is continuously healthy,his stool is always fairly dry and as you know I have to get right over top of it to pick it up. I have other neighbours just as close who swear they have never smelt anything! The code here in Toronto states that it must be picked up immediately,so ok it usually is,but occasionally it's left for a short period. It's been my experience that a couple turds could not render a balcony unuseable from that distance, even if it was extremely stinky. I'm venting here and sorry about that,but the poop in question is of the bull variety! I need some feedback and advise,I've ordered some some very realistic fake poop from an online novelty shop that I'm going to spread it around just to prove their complaint is bs,I know they'll complain about the smell as soon as they spot it.
