Two days earlier this month were for the dogs for a local woman and an Upper Arlington police captain.
A Sandringham Court woman lodged a complaint with Upper Arlington police Nov. 14 after she said an apparently disgruntled person left a bag of dog feces on her front doorstep between 7 and 8 a.m. that morning.
According to police, there are no suspects. The incident reportedly occurred the morning after someone left a note in her screen door containing a copy of the city of Upper Arlington's ordinance about cleaning up after pets.
The resident told police she has no issues with neighbors and always cleans up after her dog. She requested the matter be documented in case her family experiences future harassment.
In other recent dog-related matters, an Upper Arlington police captain was treated by Upper Arlington Fire Division medics at 7:25 p.m. Nov. 13 after sustaining dog bites to his right hand and left arm.
According to reports, police responded to a residence in the 2000 block of Jervis Road to assist a man who had fallen. Upon arrival, the captain entered the house and immediately met and was bitten by the owner's mastiff, Chewy.
The captain reportedly declined to press charges against the owner.
