As I read Facebook posts and comments, send and receive various emails and communicate with people in the community about dog and dog park issues, I am reminded many times that, unlike in Vegas, what happens in the dog parks does not stay in the dog parks. It is easy to spread information through personal conversations, emails and social media.
This can be a good thing. When I had a short conversation with Mayor Emily Larson recently she said she had been hearing good things about the dog parks. I was very pleased that people had been commenting to her regarding their good experiences with our dog parks. Let this be a reminder to let your mayor and city administration, councilors, employees and commissioners know how much you enjoy and appreciate the Duluth Dog Parks. Every good word and comment helps with creating and keeping a good relationship with the City of Duluth. Without ongoing partnerships with the city, our Duluth Dog Parks would not exist. Every good word helps.
