Take our poll
The snow is gone, the poop has been scooped, and Anchorage dog owners are once again returning en masse to the five off-leash dog areas around the city. This will be the fifth summer of the dog parks, and the questions arise: Are they working? Could they be better? What do you like about them? Have you had any bad experiences?
Unleashed dog areas in many other cities consist of enclosed areas where dogs and owners keep to themselves. But in Anchorage, unleashed dogs share trails with walkers, joggers, cyclists, et. al. Do you think there should be some enclosed areas for walking dogs, or is what we have the best solution?
PICTURE OF THE WEEK
Last week's picture theme was "exercise," and nothing illustrated it better than David Ramey's Zoom taking part in flyball. Zoom is a Siberian husky rescue who also competes in agility. To round out his impressive resume, he visits hospital patients as a Delta Society Therapy Dog. Terrific picture of a terrific dog. Thanks, David!
PICTURE THEME OF THE WEEK
Send us pictures of your dogs being social. Either with other dogs or with people. For theme purposes, the cutoff day is Monday after the first update of the gallery. As usual, for those who don't have a picture on theme, just send us your best shot of the week for others to enjoy.
