Dog Park I Visited Attracting Many Pooches

   That Apex, NC dog park I reported...excuse me....told you about...while on vacation in NC recently is apparently doing well.
    After a grand opening earlier this month, the two acre park has over 100 dogs registered, paying a $30 annual fee to romp leashless in the Carolina pines.
    It was the first time I had seen an actual dog park after all the debate in Watertown over building one.
    Apex is a more affluent exurb of Raleigh and their park is adjacent to municipal offices on what is called the Town Campus in Apex.
      In Watertown, we have focused on supporting an already existing dog park at the local SPCA as the politics for building such a thing municipally won't happen.

It's no big surprise that N.C. is light years ahead of Watertown gov't.

The cheapest way to do this is we could all chip in and get the dog park guy, a one way bus ticket to NC.

How many lawyers does NC have compared to NYS?

How many pit bull bums does NC have compared to NYS?

An annual fee was never in the mix for the proposed Watertown Dog Park. I think the annual fee is a great idea!!

And if a person can't afford the annual fee, the taxpayers should pay it for them. There is no reason the 47%, who pay no taxes and live off the labors of others, should have to take their pitty bulls to the backyard simply because they cannot afford some arbitrary fee imposed on the poor to give their dogs some necessary relaxation. NO FEES. Make the rich drug dealin' pitty bull dog owners pay.
