Dog Parking.

If you bike around with your dog, you’re constantly faced with the difficult rule that says dogs shouldn’t be left unattended, tied up alone at a parking meter or whatever. Even if they’re super-safe and nice. There’s no certification program, as there is with Open Spaceā€”so the few mean old dogs out there ruin it for allll the other cute licky dogs. You go to a cafe, the grocery, wherever, and you have to ask a friend (or a stranger) to watch your dog for you. I guess it works out.

Still, there’s a number of places that go out of their way to be nice to our furry friends. Nick & Willy’s. Laughing Goat. Farfel’s, of course. And Whole Foods. They all are kind enough to put out water for our thirsty buddies, and I salute you all.
