I loved that article. It put a smile on my face :)


Great article. I hope everyone reads it especially the part about having your dog on a leash. I used to love to walk/jog at Joe Dancer park, but not anymore. About the last 10 times I went there were dogs off leash despite all the signs. As a person who has been severely bitten by a dog when I was a kid, I'm just not willing to take the chance....which is too bad as it's a beautiful park.


Joel exactly! Joe dancer park is the worst. City will never enforce these laws which is beyond me. I do walk my dogs at the park but always on a leash. Unfortunately not an enjoyable walk as I am on high alert with numerous dogs off leash. Yes city has posted many many signs through the park that no one acknowledges. Too bad the city of McMinnville looks the other way. The dog walkers who follow the rules and the park walkers and joggers are at their own risk.
