One of the most frequent complaints about Bloomington that I hear from folks is that there’s not enough barking.
There’s just no place to bark, they say. And when you do find a place to bark, there’s a barking meter with jammed coin slots, so it accepts only credit cards or pay-by-app.
I have checked out this complaint, using all of my watchdog journalistic powers. After an initial investigation, I don’t think the complaints about a lack of barking in Bloomington have much merit.
There is plenty of free barking space up on the north side of town.
Here’s photographic evidence from the city’s Ferguson Dog Park on Sunday.
