Portland, Walks with the dogs

Litter

One of the advantages of walking dogs is the chance to explore the neighborhood.  I’ve probably been on every street in a forty-five minute walk radius of our house.  Still there are a few routes we walk regularly, and even there I am always seeing things I never noticed before.  Yesterday evening I was walking the Short-Term Dog and I noticed in a parking strip a wooden sign.  It was short, only about six inches off the ground, and small, about as big as  paper napkin.  It was set close to the curb and angled away from the sidewalk.  So I walked around it and read

DO NOT THROW CONDOMS HERE! 

 

That street is just one block closer to 82nd than ours, and maybe prostitution in Montavilla is more of an issue there.  Then again, I have seen used condoms on the sidewalk on our street, but not yet directly in front of our house.  Then again, I leave my truck parked right there so no one else can take the space.I would be just so happy if one of the dogs picked up one of those used condoms.  I wouldn’t be reaching in to get it.
