December Dog Walk Downtown L.A.

This is why we need a downtown dog park!

Tonight the Downtown L.A. Dog Walk made its way from Pershing Square to the new Nokia Theater/L.A. Live complex. While the walk and conversation was a blast upon our arrival to the main plaza of the L.A. Live complex we were "greeted" by the security staff and promptly asked to move off the main plaza grounds. Luckily the sidewalks of L.A. are still owned by the people and so our pack or merry dogs and downtowners moved over a few feet and enjoyed the view from a far.

This helps illustrates the need for the city to create more open spaces for downtown residents and their dogs socialize.

Regardless, everyone had a fun time making new friends and for some seeing L.A. Live in person for the first time. It was great to see new faces come out for the Dog Walk.

See you all next month at the Dog Walk on January 9, 2008

Say "cheese" and run!

Ken- Thanks for organizing the walk- Isis and I had such a great time. I think we should do it every 2 weeks, as the dogs have such a good time (and me too!(

Thanks for the photos too- Isis and I really appreciate your work on the dog walks. You are THE MAN!
