Do People Socalize With Their Dogs Anywhere in Brattleboro?

I just moved to Brattleboro with my dog. Where we lived before, there were lots of dog parks and places to bring your dog where you knew there would be other dogs to run and play with.  I'm wondering if there is any outdoor place, official or not, where people take their dogs to play with other dogs. Poor guy needs some new friends!


Anyone Missing a Hound?

This hound (mix? looked houndier in person) was running in traffic on Canal Street (*NO* traffic sense whatsoever) Sunday around 5pm.  I followed him up Maple St., but lost him near the corner of Locust when he started cutting through yards. He was traveling at speed.  I called the ACO and left a message with dispatch.

Sorry about the crappy photos.

Missing Dog Islay ("eye-la") in West B.

Found Cat - Dummerston

This very friendly and talkative kitty announced herself to me this morning from inside my chimney. I opened the flu and she fell into my living room, where she seemed quite at home.

I put her back outside, and she found her way back to the roof, looking like she was trying to find her way down the chimney again.

Local to Global Animal Protection Efforts

To the Editor of the Patriot Ledger,

I attended the demonstration at Dedham Superior Court yesterday (Not-guilty pleas in Quincy cat death case. November 22, 2013). We stood on the street in front of the courthouse in the cold rain for two hours before entering a courtroom to bear witness to a man and woman capable of a heinous act against a completely innocent living creature.  I felt very sad sitting there, and a bit sick to my stomach.


Deceased Cat Found Without ID

 Sadly a large whiteish cat was discovered last night (around 6:30 pm) hit and killed in the road, most likely by a car in front of 64 Western Ave. He or She was a large white cat with tabby type markings. The cat has been stored in a box if you are possibly the owner and care to examine please reply, but will be turned over to the town animal control officer by early tomorrow morning.Sorry for your loss if this is you. Please respond to this post for more information if you think was your cat.
