I am writing to suggest that Victoria could really use a dog park. It would be so good for the people who have dogs that are high-energy to be able to take them to a place where they can run and play. I know there are lots of residents who have dogs, and sometimes, the only exercise our very special dogs get is on a leash for a walk - but they really need more than that. I was recently visiting a dog park in Corpus Christi, and I was so impressed watching all the dogs running and playing with other dogs.
This park did have an area for big dogs and another for little dogs. I am a dog lover, and I have a King Charles cavalier. I would be so grateful if I had a place to take him and let him run and play. It's hard for my dog, Duke, to get enough play time. He came from a place that had lots of country acres and now is in a small backyard.
Dogs need a place here in Victoria that will help our best friends have a more healthy and happy life.
