It was tough being a dog in Lodi's early days. In October 1906, Lodi presented "a sorry appearance to the tourist," according to the Lodi Sentinel, and wandering dogs got a small portion the blame. The dusty town of 1,900 residents still had the look of a pioneer farm settlement with unrestrained dogs, cows and other animals wandering around the dirt streets. Animal droppings throughout the town were common nuisances.

Also, the town had no streetlights, no parks, no fire or police protection and no sewage disposal. The Lodi Sentinel strongly appealed to voters to approve incorporation so as an official city Lodi could collect tax money, pay for improvements and establish laws.
