Tonight, the resolution authorizing the creation of a dog park will be introduced at the informal meeting of the Common Council. It won't be voted on until the Council's regular meeting on August 20.
Dog owners in Hudson have been talking about a dog park for a really long time. Just how long it has been was poignantly brought to mind yesterday when, while looking for something else on Gossips, I came across this post from September 11, 2011.
Eight years have passed since Bo and his human presented that petition to the Common Council. Since then, Bo has gone to Rainbow Bridge, as have most of the dogs whose humans were advocating for a dog park back then. But there's a new population of dogs in Hudson, some whose humans are the same people who were advocating for a dog park in 2011, some whose humans are new to Hudson. Let's hope this Council allows the dog park to happen.
This picture of Bo and an unidentified friend was taken by Helen Arrott in 2011.
