  1. haha i walked by that house for the first time the other day and assumed it was meant for humans. i mean, dogs that can read? come on.

  2. I think it is hilarious, either way. And my dog can certainly lift his leg plenty high to give those plants a good dousing. Um, not that he did or anything…

  3. Those Are My Flowers
    I notice people allowing dogs to pee on my beautiful flowers, which of course killed some of them. I put the sign up and was a little surprised when I found people were ripping the signs down, and making childish sarcastic remarks like Matt.

    Matt, are people walking their dogs or are the dogs walking them? I know people really must love their dogs. They have to in order to perform the daily rituals of actually picking up warm s**t. Well I really love flowers and I think the world is going to have to be big enough for both of us.

    Wow, you would think people would not have to be reminded to be selective where they let dogs pee since every light pole, street sign, fire hydrant, and tree is fair game for a dog’s acid rain. Why would people even have to be told or play dumb not to let a dog kill someones flowers. That is why dogs must be on a leash. Do you say, “That’s A Good Boy,” when they pee on your sofa.

    Please, the flowers are beautiful anyone can see that, and I meant them not only for my own enjoyment but for everyone in the community. When you walk your dog, don’t you want to enjoy beautiful things to look at? Besides, if I pee on your dog wouldn’t you be upset? haha oh… maybe not Matt.

  4. MA – Our building has a front garden, which we lovingly tend. We even have a back, private patio-garden. It’s a lot of work and I share your pain. I know all about people who rip up plants, pluck flowers, trample on vegetation and allow their dogs to run through tree boxes.

    Your flowers are beautiful and I have admired them all summer. The other day something about the wording of the sign and the height of the fence struck me as unusual. My impression was that the sign was directed at PEOPLE — and not at directive intended for the owners of dogs. This would not be unreasonable since we live in an area with lots of street traffic — and our share of wandering home drunks at night.

    No offense was intended.

  5. Sorry folks but while I too love flowers and do my best to keep my yard nice, the tree boxes do not belong to home owners. If someone has gone to the trouble of planting flowers in one and put up some type of fencing, I will do my best to keep the dogs from jumping in but am not going to stop the dog from relieving him/herself there. What if every tree box on the street were planted with flowers? Would I have to walk on a different street to allow my dog to use the bathroom on public property?

    In reality, as long as I pick up my dog’s poop I am meeting the requirements of the law. If you choose to put flowers in tree boxes you run the risk of anything happening to them including theft, trampling, peeing, and litter by dogs, cats, squirrels and people.

    If you want this kind of control of the public property around your home, maybe the city isn’t the place for you.

    Roybar you are the kind of person that keeps psychiatrist in business. You are full of contradiction and self righteousness.

    Contradiction: you love flowers, and you will do your best to keep the dogs from jumping in….but am not going to stop the dog from relieving him/herself there.
    If you love flowers you will keep the dog out period.

    Contradiction: You say, “What if every tree box on the street was planted with flowers?” Hey then the street would be more beautiful.

    Self righteousness: “Would I have to walk on a different street to allow my dog to use the bathroom on public property?” ….Are you blind or have you not seen the street signs, fire hydrants, light poles ect that are too numerous to count. Or does your dog tell you he only wants to pee on flowers….

    I do choose to put flowers in tree boxes and I know the risk but that risk should be minimized in a community of thoughtful and courteous people which you are not.

    If you want this kind of control of the public property around your home. Hey stupid we are responsible for the public property around our homes, when it snows, by law, we are required to shovel the snow in front of our houses.

    This is my favorite part: maybe the city isn’t the place for you. This selfish idiot is now determined to tell me I don’t belong in the city. Haha I do have a home in rural America. Dogs are not on leashes and they roam with more freedom on the owners property. Better not let your dog see how good dogs in the country have it or he might demand you move. Since it is obvious you are not walking the dog, the dog is walking you.
