When I was out for Happy Hour on Friday, my friend Ben was telling me a tale of woe of how he was nearly arrested when he and a friend had taken a dog out to a local park and let it off the leash to run around. I was astounded to hear that there were few, if any, dog parks in the District, and that police, having solved all other crimes, had resorted to harassing dog owners in a park.
Today, however, is a good day for dog owners in the District, as the City Council voted to allow dog parks on city- and federally-owned park land. No word yet as to where some candidates would be, where would you put a dog park in DC?
