Before moving slightly uptown I would take Maddie to Chelsea Waterside Dog Park to run around. For the most part I now just walk her up and down midtown exploring. A friend who knew that I went to that park passed me on a link warning about someone drugging dogs. In the email “This incident at Chelsea Waterside Dog Park should serve as a warning to all of our groups to be watchful at your local park. If you spot suspicious activity report it, use your cellphone camera to take a photo, get the attention of other dog owners nearby, and, most of all, be mindful of your dog. Watch for items left on the ground. If strangers appear to be feeding dogs, intervene. Do not challenge anyone, but do not sit back silently.” There’s also a CBS newscast about it HERE.
On a brighter note while everyone is talking about Facebook, there’s a new app for dogs called Dogbook that is inside Facebook. It’s kind of fun to do and connects other dogs/owners that are already friends. One feature that I’m not sure is a good thing or not, is that you can search and view other dogs in your area.
