    Diane, I appreciate what you're saying. However, my frustration with her stems from how she acts in my neighborhood, and the way she talks to people in real life, not with her opinions/statements on this board....she is right in suggesting that I just ignore her posts from here on out....so that's what Im going to do.

    Happy Easter everyone!!! :D

    I'm with you. I didn't get the reason for the tone of the response, either....

    Then take it off the board and deal with it there rather than airing a personal grief, here, and then getting pissy when people don't get what your beef is. You have a personal beef? The board is not the place to air it out.

    I thought this was about people being respectful of their dog's going to the BR away from their primary residence? Am I missing something or is there something more going on here? One thing that did strike me is that I cannot believe that just because someone is a renter they feel entitled to let their dog go the bathroom and then not pick it up. I am guessing the 2 posters here know each other? Sounds like some hard feelings are out there. How can y'all be grouchy when you live down there? I just want to know what kind of pup Aris Blue Skies Black Pepper is? Sounds totally adorable.

    One of unique aspects of 30A to me is the pet friendly environment. I love to see all the people with big smiles on their faces walking their pups. However, I understand completely the frustration with doggie owners who don't clean up behind their furry friends.

    Personally, I wish more places (hotels, parks, home owners associations, etc.)had doggie stations with baggies for poop disposal and brown bags (like at the beach)for disposal of poop baggies. In my opinion, it would be a great idea to post friendly reminders to pet owners at these doggie stations and throughout the neighborhoods. I realize pet owners shouldn't have to be reminded, but I think it would help the problem tremendously. Plus, it would set the expectation throughout community, and it would be convenient.

    Again, I love the pet friendly environment of 30A, and if we put our heads together, we can think of a great idea to combat the tons of poop.

    Rosemary Beach has poop bag stations scattered around the community as a friendly reminder to dog owners. Don't know how much it helps but it can't hurt.

    Do they really do that? I thought that the dog beach permit was for a specific dog? Honestly, if there are realtors/agencies who do that, then they should have their beach permits revoked, IMO.

    I cannot stand when people let their dogs run loose (on the beach or other places). Not only do they poop all over and the owners usually "forget" to pick it up, but they can scare people. I may be in the minority, but a little dog running up to me scares me more than a big dog.

    Hello Everyone,

    Check out this web address for great "poop free" doggie signs. Scroll to the bottom of the page for the best signs.

    Dog Poop Signs: Get One For Your Yard! - The Fun Times Guide to Dogs

    How can we get these signs, receptacles and poop bags (or something like it) placed throughout the communities of 30A? It may not correct the problem immediately, but it won't make the problem worse, and I think it would set some needed expectations. With time, the situation would improve.

    Any thoughts?:D

    Sorry to be a skeptic, but I don't think signs, receptacles & bags will help. People will still ignore them, just like they ignore the brown bags on the beaches, the signs that say "no glass", and the flags. People do what they want.

    I run into the same problem where I live. I do my running on a golf cart path that is a veritable highway of cart, bicycles, runners, walkers, and dog walkers. My border collie is my running partner and I constantly have to worry about loose dogs even though Peachtree City, Ga. has a strict (whatever!) leash law. And the danger is not just for me and Shady, my dog, but also for the loose dog. Shady does not like to be approached by another dog. That dog is at risk of being bitten by the leashed dog who may feel he has no other option to protect himself. Folks should consider leashing their dogs for it's own protection as well as to follow the law!

    Opinions of others?!!

    Wow! I am surprised at the "arguing" going on with some people on this site. I moved down here because of the friendly environment. I want to thank the person that said this is not the place for that. Can't we just all get along and be friendly with each other. The world would be such a better place. I find it hard to be angry, etc. living in this environment. :D
