Okay right now I am p'd off!:angryfire:

So I let my dog out to potty in the backyard when I hear her barking and then I run to the door and I then see a person next door throwning a Turkey leg bone in my yard! :shock:
And then my dog goes after it frantically, takes it and runs to the backyard! I ran outside and into the darkness in my backyard and then I find her and take it out of her mouth and then I threw it back in their yard! THey just threw that in my yard like nothing! Like it's their dog or like a piece of trash! Anyway What should I do now? I do want to confront them about this very soon! In the meantime (tonight) I am going to have to contain myself from doing this :violent3: seriously!
:angryfire:

Sounds like they thought they were giving your dog a treat. Just explain to them the danger of cooked bones.

Dude

Figure out a way to dump like 10 Thanksgiving turkey carcasses on their doorstep with a printout from some website about what happens when dogs eat/splinter poultry bones. Do it anonymously and act like it's nothing, like say "hi, can you believe this weather" when you see your neighbor.

People are so dumb, I wonder how this species EVER evolved.

I would definitely talk to them about it, let them know that you're worried that your dogs may choke on the bones. (Or just tell them they're on a special diet and can't have any extra food.) They may have thought they were doing something nice by giving your dogs a treat. My old senile neighbor throws apples over my fence on a regular basis, no matter how many times I tell her that I don't want her to do that. I'm glad my dogs never eat them!

I agree with Paula - maybe they thought they were giving the dog a treat? If you've never had issues with these people before, I would try to approach it calmly. Explain to them how dangerous it could be for you dog to eat a cooked poultry bone.

Or maybe they don't like your dog and wanted it to choke? You don't have to have canine knowledge to know that bones of any kind of ingestion can kill ya. Talk to them about it and if they give you crap, talk to the police and file a report, or at least scare them with that. They shouldn't be throwing anything in your yard period, and could easily get a littering fine.

I agree that they probably thought that they were giving your dog a treat. Tell them that bones are dangerous for dogs. If you tell them that your dogs are on a diet they might just think that you are being a tight rear and feel sorry for your dogs then do it more.




Leanne have you ever inspected those apples? :-k I realize that I am paranoid but being that your(our) dogs are bullies and not the most popular dogs on the planet I would be afraid that she might be trying to get rid of your dogs. SInce you have asked her to stop, and she still does it I would be concerned. (I could be crazy but I would rather be safe than sorry)

i thought raw bones were ok cooked were not if raw chicken bones are ok then why not turkey
I assumed from the OP that the turkey bone was 'previously used' as in cooked. Besides, I would still have issues with people feeding my dogs unsanctioned food.

I have, and they always seem fine. She also throws sleeves of crackers over the fence. :lol: She's just old and senile and forgets my name most of the time (even though I've lived next door to her for almost two years.) I make sure to scan that side of the fence every time I let the dogs out because who knows what she'll throw over there next! Our plans are to put up a 6' fence by next summer, so hopefully that should solve that problem. :)

I had the same problem with my last dog. She was old and I had her on a diet. My neighbor was throwing the left over steaks and bones in my back yard. I gave them sh.t and told them that they weren't doing my dog any good. I felt bad about the diet but she had to be on it as arthritis caused her to not get much exercise. She would upchuck the bones in my house and give her the runs. I explained it to them and they finally stopped.

I would first talk to her about your dog to see if she actually likes him. If she doesn't seem to like him, she wouldn't be "giving him a treat" and actually trying to make him choke. If she does seem to like him, explain that bones aren't good for dogs and tell her he's on a special diet for.. allergies or something..
