Going to the dogs

Sasha
Laika

I have two dogs: Sasha and Laika.  They’re big dogs, so they need exercise and we spend quite a lot of time walking around town.

When Jay Walljasper spoke to an NDDC gathering several years ago, he noted that if the city was good for dogs, it was likely to be pretty good for people, too.   Dogs may be an indicator species for designing urban spaces and here’s another piece suggesting what a  dog’s eye view of urban planning might require.  Unfortunately, there is also a downside for trees in dog-dense neighborhoods.

And just because I like stories about dogs and the many ways dogs and humans learn to adapt to each other…it seems dogs can learn how to commute via subway in Moscow and London.
