We Want A Dog Park

As you may know, mom went to the City Council meeting on Tuesday evening to tell the Mayor and City Council that me and Stanley our city needed a Dog Park.  Before we tell you the outcome, we have to explain that we did not have an official spot on the agenda.  Instead, mom was speaking during the portion that allows public comments.  So that meant that mom was limited to 5 minutes and there would not be a vote by the council (they only vote on official agenda items).  BUTT, the Mayor already KNEW mom was coming to talk about a dog park.  Mom emailed him and gave him a bunch of information days before the meeting.  So the Mayor already shared everything with the council before mom even got there.  So even before mom said anything they knew much of what she was going to say.  (Since mom knew this already she said new stuffs.)


After mom made her comments and a few other people spoke about a few things, the Mayor polled the council to see if they were interested in investigating the dog park idea further.  The WHOLE council said they were interested in it!  Then the mayor said (get ready for this), that they ALREADY talked a little bit about it and decided there were several locations within the city that are ALREADY fenced in that could be turned into a dog park without too much problem!  And then he said there was ALREADY grass planted so that would not be an issue either! Can you believe that??  That was the BEST possible thing we could have heard!  So they are going to research into what it would take to get one of these locations made into a dog park and then when they have that research done the council will vote on it.  And remember, EVERYONE on the council was interested in a dog park!  So we are feeling VERY good about having a dog park in our future!

I think I better get my K-9 Kannon shined up and ready for the grand opening!

Woo Hoo! Your mom is going to make lots of dogs in your city very happy. It sounds like you have a dog-friendly government there!

You also need to consider a 'friends of the dog park' a dedicated group that are willing to keep it clean and maintain because sadly - as much as people are supposed to clean up after them - many don't and dog parks can quickly become places you don't want to go. We had a wonderful dog park in nebraska - 2 acres - completely fenced , it had trees, paths a lake for dogs to swim in and regular poop stations with baggies and bins. A group of us worked to maintain it and keep is safe for the puppers. Twice a year it would be closed for a week and it would have a thorough cleaning, be treated for fleas and ticks and the ground treated with pet friendly fertilizers and weed sprays. We LOVED going there - it was the BEST park ever

That is great news and well done mum. We can't wait to see the location. What is FB up to? My account is OK for now but if they vaporize us that will be it. We won't use it anymore not that we really do. Have a tremendous Thursday.
Best wishes Molly
