I wholeheatedly agree with Karen Ramsey's comments regarding
unleashed dogs. There is an atrocious amount of their "business"
on our sidewalks and in our parks, playgrounds, and recreational
areas. It is disease spreading and downright gross especially
when you consider the seepage and spread of those germs in our
invariably wet environment. Furthermore, unleashed dogs are threatening
to pedestrians. I have a 17 mo. old who I walk with regularly
and unleashed dogs can be downright terrifying! I hope more people
speak up about this concern and that something can be done. Certainly
this must bother runners, parents who take their children out,
and any pedestrian who prefers not to step in "it".
