The Barn Door: My town is going to the dogs

dogpark

I post every month over at this great blog about life in the Midwest. Today’s entry is about the dog parks in the small towns near me and how it’s a shame people don’t know what they’re there for. Check it out.

Going to a dog park does more than give the dog exercise. If that were the only goal, taking them for walks would be the only activity required. Heck, it would benefit the humans, as well., Who couldn’t use a little workout twice a day? Dogs need to socialize with other dogs in the same way humans need to interact with other humans. How would you like it if you were raised by apes and never allowed to come within 100 yards of another human being? You’d probably assume you were being kept from them because they were dangerous to you. You might even start to think that you were an ape instead of a human, and that they were aliens.
