The New Zealand collective hatred of dogs annoys me.

 

 

 

 

Not heard of the one before, I think we are very much a dog liking nation. Staffy's and other fighting bred dogs, not so much

 

 

 

 

Really? You think a nation where dogs are banned from almost every public space, national park, open area, pub, CBD, hotel, camp ground etc is a "dog liking nation"?

 

 

 

 

 

 

It is due to bad dog owners

And we're not in Europe, where they let dogs into places wer don't.

And soo onto a wee thing that annoys me.....
Folk who want things to be the same in this country as the one they came from.
(And I'll qualify that by saying I've lived/worked out of NZ in a more than a few countries)

Agreed. And they say dogs are like their owners - my Hungarian Vizsla absolutely hates flies with a vengeance!

Why should they be worse here than say the USA, where dogs are allowed in many hotels and even in the cabin on domestic flights? Is there some fundamental difference in behaviour between NZers and Americans in this respect?

Most people smell worse than most animals, unless the animals are wet, unlikely in the cabin of a plane.

Perhaps because in NZ animals travel in the cargo hold ( I've seen; live cats, sheep, horses, eels, and crayfish come off planes, and have sent my own dog this way as well)
Perhaps its because we're a young country, and historically our dogs have been working dogs rather than fufu dogs.
Perhaps its simply because its the law.

Still a small thing that seems to annoy both sides.

They have a hard time doing that if there's a lawn in the way. They also tend to get blamed for the deposits of other animals.

There are no dogs in our neighbourhood but many many many cats, every god dammed day we have to clean up the mess. Unfortunately I cannot due to my suppressed immune system.

 

Their mess is more than just annoying it is a very real health hazard for me.

 

We have tried many cat repellents etc without success, maybe my sons suggestion of a shotgun may be the answer

I am very sorry to hear that. I happen to like cats but the situation you describe is not something to make light of. I wish I could offer you a solution. I'm not sure of the situation where you live, but out here we see the leavings of possums and probably weasels and stoats as well as cats. I wasn't thinking of dogs so much. Maybe you could modify your shotgun idea and get one of those high-pressure water guns and put a little ammonia into the water to make something really unpleasant to the nose of any animal it hits. If a cat experiences that a couple of times, it is unlikely to come back.

Sistema plastic food containers.

 

They leak, you can't stack them and they're impossible to wash and dry properly.

Not sure if this one has been mentioned yet but... when you do a wash and someone has left a paper tissue in a pocket.
