Civic Pride

Thank you to all those who braved the cold and made it out to the February dog walk. Special thanks to Celia, Jim, the "Mayor" Wonton and Cam for picking up the slack as I had a late running meeting.

In an effort to find new and interesting places to walk, we made our way across downtown to the steps of City Hall. To be more specific, we appropriated the south lawn of City Hall and made it our informal dog park. At night the views from City Hall of downtown are tremendous, not to mention all that grass. Yes, a few rabble-rousers went off-leash and romped around untethered.

This brought us to question:

1) Why can't we just bring our own gates and erect a temporary dog park on the south lawn or any open city space?

2) Where can we go next for our walk with so much grass?

As for the first questions, stay tuned as we ask City Hall; for the latter, please send us your suggestions of where we can go next on our upcoming walks.

Until then, be safe and enjoy the walk.

Next walk:

There are large grassy areas around Downtown, you just have to explore more and find them.

I could tell you where they are but I can't because there are already so many bad dog parents who don't pick up their dog's poop. (The worst: 2nd/Main, and around Ralph's) I'm guessing hired dog walkers might be to blame

Why would the city provide a dog park to people who aren't cleaning up after themseves?

Please spread the word: Be kind, and bring extra bags, and clean up other's while you're at it. (Heck pick up some garbage while you're at it, too.)

-Rant Over, Thanks
