I know a lot of Americans love their dogs, but I am not one of them. They smell bad. They are a lot of work. They are expensive and they tend to bark and bite. Plus, the small ones have always seemed a little Parisian to me. If I could ban all dogs I would do it in a heartbeat. Absent that, I cherish new regulations they keep neighborhoods and public spaces free of the four-legged menace.
Naturally, I was happy to see this sign at New York’s Hudson River Park.
