The nice thing about living in a small town is that you can cover a lot of ground on foot, and for the most part you don't have to worry about the people you encounter. Ninety percent of the people I pass while I'm out walking are out doing the same thing: they're sweating their way from point A to point B.
Many of them are taking their dogs along, and I'm starting to notice the same paired people and dogs quite often.
Something else I'm noticing...Dixon smells a lot like dog poop.
I have to admit, I haven't witnessed someone out with their dog not cleaning up after it, but there are obviously a whole lot of pooches pooping randomly with no human scooping up behind them. There's a lot of poop on sidewalks, a lot just off sidewalks, and with summer settling in and the heat rising...it stinks.
I like the town, I love the (for the most part) nice wide sidewalks and the quiet and relative safety of this place, but damn...eau d'doggy droppings is not the aroma I would like wafting by me as I amble around town.
Really, people...how hard is it to scoop?
