(Let me know if I should highlight/hide potentially offensive terms and I will be happy to.)
There is a common/green space area in the middle of my parents' neighborhood. It's small, maybe one square block and has been designated by the HOA as "OK" for the residents to use to walk their leashed dogs as long as the owners pick up after the dogs. (The HOA even provides a little dispenser with plastic "pick-up" bags and a trash can, which I think is nice.)
One of the homeowners living right across the street from the green space has decided this is NOT OK with him. My mom was walking her dog a few months ago and he came running out of his house yelling, "You can't do that!" Mom, confused, thought maybe he thought that she was leaving the dog's droppings behind, so she said, "Oh, he doesn't have to go. But if he does, I'll clean it up."
"No!" the guy yelled. "You can walk your dog here! My children play on this grass. And even if you clean up the droppings, the dog's still peeing in the grass and I don't want my children stepping in that! They get it all over their shoes and track it onto the carpets! You're the third person I've had to tell today! Why does everybody think it's OK to just let their dogs pee EVERYWHERE?"
"So you don't want the dog owners to use the area the HOA has approved for dogwalking because there's a chance your children could step on spots of dried dog urine while wearing their shoes?" Mom said.
"YES!" the guy cried. "It's disgusting!"
Mom gave him absolute dead-expression face and said, "You need to take this up with the HOA."
And of course, while Dog Pee Guy was wailing about he shouldn't HAVE to take it up with HOA, the dog owners should just do what he tells them, Mom's dog lifted his leg on a nearby tree.
