That is 662 registered dogs. I am sure there are many more than that!
A few weeks ago I held the first gathering of dog owners in the city. It was the beginning of a process to start a new committee. In the coming weeks city council will consider new rules to allow dogs in parks. I have asked Jonathan Goldman and Darren Rapkowski, two dog owners, to meet and put together some initial goals. They will then call another brainstorming session. Abe Haim remains my point man for the main dog run on Mackle Road. We will find someone to do the same when a second dog run opens on Côte Saint-Luc Road near Richard Schwartz Park..
