Well, it's just my opinion, but for such a dog friendly town (we live downtown), I find it sad that so many dog owners do not pick up after their dogs.

We walk every morning with our Greyhound, and I am just amazed at the amount of dog waste there is on the sidewalks and open areas. Picking it up is not that difficult, and the bags are inexpensive.

Let's show our guests and tourists, not to mention all of us, that we care. Tehachapi is special; let's treat her that way, please.
