My old home town goes (back) to the dogs

I went to college in Santa Cruz, California. A few years after I left, the city fathers banned dogs from the Pacific Garden Mall. The Mall is the town’s main shopping street and there used to be a lot of dogs there, many of them apparently unsupervised.

Recently the city council voted to try a three month experiment where dogs would again be allowed on the mall. Here’s a link to the story:

I especially like this part: “The council voted this summer to lift a 35-year ban on dogs to make downtown more appealing to a growing number of owners who shop and travel with their pets.”

To say the least, I am not the only person who wants to bring the dog.
