It’s a dog’s life

Hey - I just want to introduce myself, I’m the blog dog. My name is Angus and I live just a few houses off Perry Street. I was born in Tri-Cities but moved up here some years back. I guess I’ve been here all my life. And it’s not a bad deal at all what with a new pizza restaurant and a tavern - and The Shop. I’m a regular at The Shop. I do that frog-leg thing on the floor over there - why do they call it that, by the way? It should be dog leg. So, I’d like to know what happened to the people who were talking about getting a dog park here - did you all just give up and go home? All bark, no bite? Don’t give up so easily people…

South Perry dog park idea

I got an e-mail from one of my South Perry neighbors last week. She had an interesting suggestion: how about turning that grassy area off Southeast Boulevard and 10th Avenue into a dog park?
Stopping by the other day, I noticed that lots of people are already walking their dogs there - so it seems to be a popular spot.
What I didn’t know is that it’s an underground water reservoir. So the property belongs to the City of Spokane’s Water Department, but hey, maybe it could work out?

The city and Spokanimal are already working together on developing a dog park closer to downtown.

About this blog

Welcome to the South Perry neighborhood blog. My name is Pia Hallenberg and I’ve worked as a journalist in Spokane since the fall of 1998; for the last four years I’ve lived on South Perry Street.

I love the neighborhood so when time came to pick an area for The Spokesman-Review’s first neighborhood blog, the choice was simple: South Perry is where it’s at.
