	I did a search and came up with 4097 results.  I didn't read all of them
obviously but here are a couple you might take a look at.  It may be
acquired by the dogs walking on bird (or other infected animals) feces then
licking their paws or from water contaminated by animal or bird feces.  It
may also affect humans if their water is contaminated.

It is probably something those of us with pets should be aware of no matter
where we live since it can be transmitted by bird feces comtaminating an
outdoor water container or even by the pet walking on the feces then
licking their paws.  I have one who wouldn't stop at walking in it,  she
would have to roll in it.
