I’ll be happy to see my friends at the Bulb. I’m thankful that Point Isabell was available to dog owners but after spending almost every morning at the Bulb I felt sort of lost. It felt like I’d transferred to another school in mid-semester and didn’t know anyone at the new school.

    You make a good point Jackie – that the loss of this gathering place, even for a few days, was like breaking a community apart. It’s why it’s important that we all keep reminding the East Bay Regional Parks, the City of Albany and the State Park system – that humans (with or without their dogs) are part of the ecosystem they profess to want to protect.
