Curb Your Dog Signs

Thou shalt not cleanup after thy neighbor's pet – if you're lucky. In a dog-dense 'hood, a few transgressions are inevitable but desperate times can call for more direct actions.

Our neighbor's cheeky reminder stays (debatably) within bounds if owners don't. Tell us what's worse in such indelicate matters: these reminders or the alternative?

How to curb a dog when your neighbor won't?

A little searching and a theme quickly emerges. Cast iron, a $14 price range and a certain position of perhaps questionable taste. The market suggests an opportunity for a designer of discretion and a little wit.

LEFT: The Scottie variety already sold out at a local high-end gift store this summer. It is available in other phrases and a more graphic visual.

RIGHT: We found the black dog version on ebay.

Tell-it-like-it-is text versions also exist, at higher price points and less design sensitivity.

What's your solution? Grin and scoop it? Put up a sign? Or maintain a Caddyshack-like vigilence on messes in the making?
