Meet the dogs

    CoCo, Zoe and Contessa aren’t beauty queens competing for the latest crown. They’re dogs, and they want you to pick up their waste.

    Voters have until February 28 to choose one of 10 dogs, CoCo, Zoe and Contessa among them, to represent Roxborough/Manayunk and East Falls as spokesdogs for the Philadelphia Water Department. The winning dogs will be part of a campaign to encourage dog owners and walkers to pick up after their charges to reduce water pollution.

    NewsWorks’ Megan Pinto has more information and an adorable slideshow of CoCo, Contessa and Zoe.
