Dog Walk Ed Fuentes

When blogdowntowner reader and commenter Urban Bruin organized a dog owner social, over a dozen canine dragged their owners through the streets of Downtown's "Westside." As people gathered, instantly you could see the event as a potential Neighborhood Watch Walk. A dog walk edition would make a unique add to the already successful Downtown walks in Skid Row and the Arts District.

Since blogdowntown and our community minded readers are all for bringing Downtown closer together, we caught up with LAPD Senior Lead Officer Marco Duarte at Pershing Square. He's all for the idea and hopes to meet up at the next Downtown Dog social, and have the walk be a Neighborhood Watch Walk at least once a month.

Now all we need is for the LAPD K-9 team to join in.

Side Note: The missing sod behind Duarte isn't due to dogs tearing up the place. L.A. Park and Recreation is getting Pershing Square ready for its popular winter ice skating rink, opening next month.
