"I also am a dog lover in Portland. I would have to agree with some others that I don't think dogs should be allowed in stores that sell food. Even my dog, whom I consider cleaner than some people who wander around the stores, could get a sudden…"

"Public bag stations would be great - I lived in Fairfax, Virginia and I remember those in a lot of parks and that I thought people did use them. Yes, PLEASE scoop your poop and throw the bag away! Someone in my neighborhood uses these blue bags and…"

"I have to say that I agree with this and I don't believe that this in any way "imperils" anyone. Pets don't belong in the grocery store or restaurants, unless it's an outside cafe or patio. Not wanting them there has…"

"Thanks for the article Lulu. I too am a dog owner and lover who just moved here from, yes, California. Although it's not as pet friendly there, they allow dogs of all sizes in some of their malls which I have mixed feelings about. I worked in a…"

"Good article! I think it would be cool if there were dog friendly neighborhoods, as one poster suggested. I would live there, of course (since I have three dogs)."

Dog-friendly Portlanders in peril

Came across this article in the NY Times this morning. This is, after all, one of the main reasons I moved to Portland, precisely because (I thought) it was so pet-friendly. However, I understand the issues here are broader.

Hi, how are you? I am good. I am interested in moving to the city and thought I would contact you because you look friendly... Can you tell me more about Portland?

And I don't know if you've ever visited or lived in Philadelphia, or Burlington, VT, but I would be interested in seeing how they compare to Portland?

I look forward to hearing from you!

Hey Lulu,
How are things going? I accidentally deleted your last note with your phone #.Are you settling down yet? I'm on my way. Passed one exam and have one lett. Then I can get a job and a home. I fell in love with a house in Woodlawn, but think it's off the beaten path a bit. Am hoping to be in the NE, pref. Beaumont Village, Alberta, near shops and parks. Give me an update.

Hey Lulu,
Are you officially back from Miami? I accidentally erased your phone #; Mine is 408-528-4413. I found a house i absotely love in the Woodlawn area. Still don't know much about the neighborhood, but the house and those around it are in good shape. It's by Condordia Univ. if that means anything to you. My exams (for massage)are coming up in the next few weeks and that pressure is freaking me out a bit. I must pass, so I can get a job, then a loan for my house. UGH. I want it all NOW. Miss my daughters and pets, but am hanging in there. How bout you?
