This is no surprise to me, but Somerville Patch just ran coverage of a Men’s Health report ranking Boston at a lowly #89 out of 100 for cities’ dog-friendliness. In my opinion, Cambridge and Somerville are included in that assessment, which is very sad because my dog is how I know all my neighbors and walking him through different parts of town is one of the ways I stay on top of the latest neighborhood happenings.
Dogs are good for community-building.
If you are a dog-owner, keep this in mind when voting for your City Councilors and Aldermen, and please add your voice when off-leash hours and other dog-friendly initiatives are proposed for our local parks.
Thank you in advance 🙂
