In the Land of the Small Dogs

Then the condos came. This was progress. And with the condos came a herd of small dogs, parceled out one or two at a time to condo owners. The dogs need walking. This is good, since it gets people out onto the streets. Dogs have other needs too.
The purpose of mulch, grass, and other vegetation in the tree boxes and unfenced (there aren't many) lots seems to be to satisfy those other requirements. Grass in the tree boxes was mentioned for nostalgic purposes.
At any rate, little signs have appeared. Such as "Keep Dogs Off" and one of those too cute equivalents for non-speakers of English.
They are being purloined. One missing from the garden by Breakwell's and one or two from in front of The Quincy Park. Reminds me of the movie I never saw because the book was so bad I couldn't read it.
