While most of us are currently concerned about contracting swine flu while in contact with the public or using public facilities. My wife and I recently witnessed something that will make us think twice about drinking from a public drinking fountain even once the current pandemic passes. It seems the town of Downieville, California has a town dog. We met him several times while exploring town. He is a nice dog, he just has bad manners. As the saying goes, “a picture is worth a thousand words” or as Peanut’s Lucy would say, “yuck dog-germs”. Just think, I almost took a swig from that fountain! Avoiding flu and dog germs, it’s just another adventure in RVing.
