To help the offleash areas in Utah

To all people who enjoy walking with their dogs off-leash in Parley's Gully--

It's crunch time. Those who want Parley's inaccessible to dogs are working hard to make it so, and we need to work just as hard for our rights. We're asking all of you to email your City Council Representative, and to forward this to anybody you know who also feels that dogs should be allowed off-leash in Parley's Gully.

The City Council has put together a small group to discuss a compromise between those who want no dogs in Parley's Gully, those who want dogs off-leash throughout the park, and those who fall somewhere in the middle. While we are hopeful of a positive outcome, it's difficult to envision a positive scenario that makes all sides happy.
This could result in a standoff between sides, and a decision by the City Council to ban dogs from Parley's.

Read below to find out a few ways you can help.

1. EMAIL YOUR CITY COUNCIL MEMBER (SLC RESIDENTS) OR THE COUNCIL AT LARGE (NON-CITY RESIDENTS) Even if you've already written your City Council Representative and the council at large, please write another simple note letting them know how you feel about having your dogs off-leash in Parley's--and how it may or may not affect your vote. We want to work with the City Council, but we need to make sure they know where we stand--and how many of us there are.

Ankle beautification, for cheap!

Ah, the beauty of torn ligaments. Look at the color, the shading, the videos in the background. Life is good.
