With more mulching and planting around my trail and more water lines along side it, we have feared potential development on Chloe’s Lane for some time. But with all of the houses on Officers’ Row in the park behind it sold for millions, a more affordable alternative has sprouted right at the elbow of my favorite fetch route.
Neither Mike, Heather nor my good pal Charlie had a clear explanation of what it was exactly, or who was responsible for it. Whether the work of kids, illegal campers or beer-drinking teens, we’ll probably never know. All I know for certain is that the thing is in my way, and I want it gone by the time I come back from vacation.
