Thanks so much for the balanced portrayal of dog parks (“Doggie Treats,” 2/21). We think your suggestion of separate dog seating on the Metro is a great idea! What about a canine representative on the D.C. Council? A dog for vice mayor?

Exaggerations aside, there are thousands and thousands of tax-paying and responsible dog owners all over the District who would benefit from fenced and regulated play areas in our parks. The Department of Parks and Recreation is on board, enabling legislation goes to the council soon, and it is an idea whose time has come.
