Bringing Home Puppy


Pups and Protest

This weekend we attended a rally to support our local dog park at South Stanley.  The city is beginning a much needed renovation to the park, which will include a fully enclosed off leash dog area – no doubt a wonderful addition to the park.  There is a bit of debate taking place, however.  There are two factions that represent the park who want different things.  One is to keep a single, unified dog area.  The other proposes a separate enclosed area for smaller dogs.  Personally, I am in favour of a unified space.  As the proposed off leash area will already be much smaller than the current space, I think its important to keep the off leash area as large as possible.  Also – Tim is basically a huge dog trapped in a small dog body.  How could we possibly choose which space to put him in?!

The rally had an excellent turn out – and even included a couple of visits by city council candidates for Trinity-Spadina.  Second Cup supplied hot coffee, and photographers were on hand to document the day, including this cute pic of Tim in an epic battle with Bailey.

 

There is currently a petition going around to keep a single, unified off leash area at the park.  This petition will be presented to City Hall November 1st.  If you use the park and would like to sign the petition, please contact me through this site, or by registering on South Stanley Dog Park Site and contacting its administrator.
