At last, we're getting a second dog park

by Jeb Bing

There are 26,800 dogs in Pleasanton and if they could vote, they would have had the city's second dog park in town long ago -- and probably quite a few more.

What's ironic is this council is moving another dog park forward when, I believe,Councilman Pentin is the only member of the 5 with a dog.

Good, another place to be filled up with doggie poop. Does that mean all of you walkers, who think my yard is the personal bathroom for your dogs, will take the dogs there instead?
