There is no better place to live than in a small college town.

Need convincing? Below is an exchange on our local online community discussion forum (listserv) from this weekend.

Morning, 2 dogs, one beagle-ish and another larger white multicolored dog are zooming on Trescott near Woodcock-Partridge intersections.

Can you help them get home safely?

Please report sightings of two dogs on the run: Willow is a large blue-tick coonhound and Tracker is a beagle.

They are friendly and may jump eagerly into an opened car. This morning they slipped out our door in Etna, caught a scent and bolted toward downtown Hanover. Please call if you've spotted them.

A kind driver collected Willow and Tracker and returned them. Thanks to all for keeping a look out!
