Sick as a Dog

Signs posted at City of Decatur parks are warning dog owners to avoid local dog parks after area veterinarians diagnosed several Decatur pups with canine influenza. While not typically fatal, the highly contageous dog flu is as unpleasant as you would imagine. Dogs can become contagious before exhibiting symptoms. Decatur signage does not provide a time frame, instead advising pet owners to avoid the parks "until this epidemic subsides." [Decatur Metro]
