A Small Victory in the Dog War

From The South End Mailing List

Boston's First Public Dog Run Opens - (BOSTON) -- Dog owners and their pets are out enjoying the city's first public dog run this morning. The gated strip runs along Storrow Drive, with access from the Massachusetts Avenue Bridge. It's the result of efforts by City Councilor Tom Keane, the Metropolitan District Commission and a group called ``Dog Owners of the Back Bay''. Keane says it is reassuring to see that gaps can be bridged between neighborhood groups and dog owners. Neighborhood groups had complained about the city's growing dog problems.
