Friday Question of the Day

Now I don’t really have a dog in this fight but a number of people have written me to discuss it. Ed note: you’ll get the atrocious pun in a moment. At any rate Intangible Arts just wrote a great post about neighborhood dog parks. Like I said it doesn’t effect me very much. But I often walk by a dog park and I’m telling you the joy I see on the people’s faces and the dog’s faces (if that’s possible) seems worth it to me. It really does seem to build a sense of community as well. But others say it is a total waste of money that could be invested in worthier causes. I’m not sure I buy that argument. I think the joy that dog parks bring people and their pets is worth it. As long as they don’t take over the people parks. So what do you think: are dog parks a beautiful site or a complete waste of money and resources?
