Some dogs are really lucky: here is Buckner, a 7-year-old greyhound. His mom Paige is working hard to get him a fenced-in park in Ronan Park, in Dorchester, MA so he can run free (off-leash). The battle for off-leash parks involves more neighborhoods than just Dorchester. To help this cause, visit the website.
The best time to take your dog to Ronan Park is on a nice sunny weekend evening between 4 and 6pm. There will certainly be a few people out with their dogs. As Paige told us, dogs have fairly strict leash laws. Other parks in the area include Dorchester Park and Pope John Paul Park which is on the Neponset River.
Join in the festivities by participating in the Dorchester Day Parade on June 3, 2007!

Last Saturday we went to a pug meet up held at Doggie Day located at 400 Tremont St.
Liz (left) has decided to get a pug and was interesting in finding a reliable breeder. If you have any suggestions, please let us know! Brady (below) stole our hearts with his sweet face and charming personality. It was Brady's first meet-up so he was a little shy and nestled himself in between Silvia and Liz.
Here are some more pictures we took at the March pug meet up.
