Default Dog poop concerns reaches front page of the Villages Daily Sun-- Friday 1-30-2015.

Minding their manners - The Villages Daily Sun: Villages

This caught my eye today.

I wonder if the writer of the article Judy Erksa reads TOTV?

Same old, same old; however it might be a good reminder for folks that aren't on TOTV.

Are some neighborhoods/villages more dog friendly than others? Just curious...

No! TV overall for the most part is dog friendly. For the most part? Only because there are a few who dislike dogs/animals for what ever reason. And secondly there are a few knot heads around that do not clean up after their dog and of course that is what always seems to be the primary discussion.

The other 98% of us that do it right enjoy our dogs as do the neighbors.

And just in case someone missed it in today's Daily Sun article it says:

Don't dispose of bags of dog poop in the trash cans at the mail stations.

This bus is powered by your waste for a sustainable future.

It's on a bus in England but one day we may see it on the side of a Villages trolley.

I can't help but wonder if the Daily Sun is trying to tone down the "dog friendly" designation a bit. There may be some who have decided that dog friendliness based on past publicity indicates The Villages and Villagers are a lot more than just dog friendly.

There is a delicate balance and I think The Villages and Villagers are doing a good job of maintaining that balance.

I do not do well on oblique, inuendo or even tongue in cheek....I do not speculate or guess....therefore please explain what the highlighted comment is intended to mean.
