Garbage cans are upset and the contents carried to the neighbors' lawns and porches. This must be stopped. Because a dog wears a license collar does not mean that he may run loose over the property of others. A friendly dog in the neighborhood is seldom friendly to the neighbor's garden. All dogs without collars will be picked up by the marshals and dogs that stay around the school house doors all day will also be taken into custody. In short, if you want your dog, keep him at home.
