Polls for the 2012 Philly Water’s Best Friend Competition close on May 1. That means you have less than two weeks to cast your vote online for your favorite spokesdog in Queen Village and Northern Liberties. Thousands of votes have already been cast to pick the 15 finalists in each neighborhood. Each neighborhood will hold a pageant in June to select an ambassadog to help educate residents and fellow dog-walkers about the negative impacts of dog waste on our rivers and streams. Dog waste that is not picked up can run off into storm drains, where it enters waterways, spreads harmful bacteria, and breeds algae that can kill local fish.
