Jamaica Plain News reports the MSPCA is drastically reducing the hours at its dog park at South Huntington and Perkins.
A concerned citizen complains about a thoughtless dog owner in the park at W. 3 and B streets in South Boston:
Woman in park with dog off leash. This is a No Dog park. A neighbor went out to tell her and she was yelling at him and being very rude. Please have park patrolled and ticket people like her- tons of babies play there and I'm sure the Southie mother's group won't be happy to hear their kids are playing in dog pee.
Jed Hresko spotted some dogged determination on the Orange Line this evening, on a Forest Hills train just past State.
Roving UHub photographer Christopher Wagner reports on his encounter with the Allston white rabbit:
A couple days ago I was walking to my car and spotted him again. When I crouched down to try and get a picture, he hopped right out from under the white Subaru in the picture and stopped right in front of me. I’m thinking it has to be either an escaped or released pet ‘cause he’s awful comfortable around people. Also the whole albino thing. There was another time in front of my house when he was casually munching on some plants growing between the sidewalk cracks about 10 feet from where I was standing. Not sure what’s going to happen once winter comes, I think the times they will be much sadder.
Anyway I love the fact that there is a white rabbit in Allston.

Roving UHub photographer Jed Hresko happened upon this bucolic scene this afternoon on Pembroke Street.
The MSPCA's Boston Adoption Center reports it needs newspapers:
All of our small animals have their enclosures lined with a layer of absorbent newspaper under their bedding, and we clean and replace this daily. As you can imagine, we go through a whole bunch of newspaper, and right now we're nearly out!
You can drop off newspapers at the adoption center at 350 S. Huntington Ave. in Jamaica Plain.

News around Dorchester reports:
This poor dog is Max. He was taken from the corner of Adams Street and Gallivan Boulevard. The owner secured him to a pole as he had in the past to run into the store. and that is when Someone took him . If you were in the area from 8:00pm- 9:00 pm last night and remember anything please contact Boston Police. The family is obviously devastated.
Around 7 p.m. came word that somebody had squealed to the cops and an officer was duly assigned to determine whether there was a pink pig with black spots roaming the Public Garden.
But maybe not. Audrey alerted us to Back Bay's own Frank the Pig (Frank being short for Francis, as in, you know, that English guy), whose owner, Hayley, likes taking him out for constitutionals around the neighborhood
Pilotblock captured the scene outside a South End Starbucks this afternoon.
A fed-up citizen complains:
Millennium Park is NOT a dog park! I am sick and tired of being chased and nearly attacked by off-leash dogs. My son was just chased and knocked to the ground by an off-leash dog.
A disgusted citizen complains about the demonspawn hellhounds once again infesting Blackstone Park in the South End:
"You shouldn't wear white pants when you walk across Blackstone Park," said the uncommonly nutty owner of the unleashed dog that just wiped its filthy snout on me. Leash law? Public park? Anybody?
Hell hath no fury like a Jamaica Plain resident who is really put out by poop. Neal Simpson spotted this epic work posted on a fence on Williams Street, a few doors down from Doyle's.
Just think: This person was so annoyed he or she went home (or just inside) fuming, pounded this out on the keyboard, printed it out and went back out with some tape to alert the miscreant, who no doubt will read it, feel incredibly guilty and pledge to carry a Globe Direct bag for poop forever more.
