Time to let the conversation off leash. This is your chance to talk dogs with other Bark readers and our editors and contributors during a real-time chat. Unlike recent open threads, we aren’t featuring a special guest or a theme this week—although we’ll be popping by with some thoughts and questions of our own.
Because we know that some folks need an extra push to join the conversation, we’ll be selecting at random one open thread participant to receive a Dog Is My Co-Pilot T-shirt and a subscription. (If the winner is already a subscriber, he or she can extend his or her subscription or give it as a gift.) Be sure to include your email when you register to comment, so we can contact you if you win.
Please note: When we titled our open thread "off leash," we didn’t mean out-of-control—just like at the dog park. Obscene, abusive, offensive or commercial comments will be taken down. We close the thread at 4 p.m. PST.
