Update: We've had some exciting things happening with the dog park. If you remember, it was SUPPOSED to go back to the city council on July 8th. But then Thursday night the mayor tells mom it is on the agenda and being discussed! (The regular Tuesday meeting was postponed until Thursday due to an election.) So mom made sure she and dad were there! Anyway, they talked all about the proposed dog park and the city manager revealed what ideas they came up with! It was exciting! And you will NOT believe what else happened! The city people kept showing this photo on the big projector for EVERYONE to see DURING the council meeting discussion (mom had posted it to the mayor's Facebook page just before the meeting)!
They loved our picture! And the mayor said they were showing it to soften everyone's hearts! After the meeting the mayor wrote:
This picture was the most popular part of tonight's Council meeting. Thanks Carol Campbell! For everyone's information, the Council has decided to take the next step towards creating a Dog Park. We are going to prepare some additional information and bring it back to the City Council in August. It will be voted at that point on whether or not to establish a park. In the next week I will be posting some more information about the Dog Park and how you can give your input. We want your input!
So then after the meeting, one of the councilmen messaged mom and asked her to set up a Dog Park page on Facebook cause he REALLY wants it. (Mom already could tell by his statements at the meeting.) So of course mom does (and our picture is on that too BOL!) You can see the page HERE. As you can see, the city manager gave all the information about the proposal and everyone on the council kept saying it was very doable. The only thing they wanted was COMMUNITY SUPPORT. So now mom is trying to rally the community. We are getting soooo close!
As you might already know, on Fridays me and Stanley run 6 miles with our pawrents. Since it rained in the morning we left a little late. BUTT, there were LOTS and LOTS of puddles for us! Mom could tell we were getting a bit warm (our pawrents watch us VERY closely) when the sun came out so we took a little break in the shade. That was when mom got this funny picture.
Don't worry, Stanley wasn't really THAT hot. Mom sets her camera on "burst" so it takes rapid fire pictures and then when she checks them later she finds out she got a funny one.
