What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: Boston, the light in the dark, tragedy, movie shoots, car dealers, Dippikill, the lust for sensationalism, self defense, dashing, the Brook Tavern, sashimi, gems in Schenectady, Iron Throne, an ethical dilemma, and steak gone awry.

We are looking for a place to board our dog, 30 lbs,1 1/2 yrs, that does not put them in cages. All of the places we looked at either used cages or kept them in pens with concrete floors. She is a very friendly mix that loves people and loves to play with other dogs. We had a person who watched her in her home, but they are renovating and said that she probably won't do it after the expensive renovations. We are looking in the Troy, East/North Greenbush area.
