On Saturday a new dogs-only park was opened in Houston:
The event was the opening of the city’s first recreational area expressly designed for canines, and the four-footed set took it all in with unleashed enthusiasm.
“This is wonderful,” said Lynn Clark, a longtime member of the Houston Area Dog Park Association, which has lobbied the city for such facilities. “Just look at all the happy dogs and people.”
However, there appears to be a potential problem, albeit a minor one, that could pop up:
Maxey Bark and Run Park — so named because it borders a Metro park-and-ride lot — is open from dawn to dusk.
If Metro ever decides to close that park-and-ride, the dog park will have to be renamed.
