    "Everyone has one. The dog park at the corridor is a blast. Most places allow small dogs. There are several pet shops from boutique to commercial. You and your dog will feel at home and safe unlike a lot of places in the city. If you need puppy training classes, Mark over at unleashed is fantastic. Most places let your bring your dog in and if you’re Dining out, patios are the perfect spot . "

    "The south end is truly one of Boston’s treasures. It is many micro neighborhoods, which can often be a block or two in size, but which are united in pride of common identity. A truly diverse place where people of many races, social identities, and economic classes live together with an amazing sense of togetherness. Almost any product or service you want is within a few blocks walk, and people & families of all types use all of them. I’m a happy resident."
