Is Your City Dog Friendly?

In between the articles teaching you how to "make any woman yours" or to "have more sex," Men's Heath magazine recently ranked the 10 best cities for dogs. Although we beg to differ with Chicago's low rating, it got us thinking. No matter where you live, you can make your city, town or hamlet dog friendly -- regardless of the criteria used by Men's Health. Indeed, a city becomes dog friendly when dog people get together and make it happen. For example, petition lawmakers for dog parks, beaches or trails, support local animal welfare groups, buy your dog food and supplies from local stores and encourage more people (as long as they're responsible) to bring a dog into their home. Get creative, start a club for singles who love dogs or sponsor a tea party for elderly neighbors and their pets.

Start talking to fellow dog lovers in your 'hood and turn your town into Fidopolis. Let's hear some of your ideas in the comment section.

Check out this interactive map to see where your hometown ranks in the Men's Health list and then you'll know how much work you have to do.
