Pup-Oriented Neighborhoods

Long before I was born, our neighborhoods were perfect for walking everywhere–to work, the store, and the park. I refer to these neighborhoods as “pup-oriented,” because without the need to drive places far away, humans had way more time for their fur-friends. They were also more likely to take us places, like the park. I love going to the park to roll in the grass and smell all of the great smells. I think Denver should focus on making sure all our neighborhoods are pup-oriented. It’s good for people and good for dogs.

Leash-Friendly Sidewalks

Sometimes Chris and I aren’t able to walk side-by-side. This makes it really hard to do my job. Other times, Chris can’t use the sidewalk at all because it’s all broken up or closed because of construction. Still other times, there’s no sidewalk to use at all. I hate it when this happens because then we have to go places in the car. I’d rather use the sidewalk. I think Denver should make sidewalks a priority, and make sure that all our sidewalks are accessible to all people and wide enough for a person and their leashed pet to use. It’s good for people and it’s good for dogs.

Meeting With and Working With People

As your City Councildog, I promise to be your best friend too. I’ve heard all sorts of great ideas at all the neighborhood meetings, restaurants, parks, and businesses I’ve been to. I think we should have leaders who listen to all the smart people who live in Denver. It’s good for people (and probably good for dogs).
