Molson and Teddie named Water Department spokesdogs

    The Philadelphia Water Department now has two new spokedogs to help promote the need to clean up after our pets.

    Molson, part pit bull, part husky, will represent East Falls. Manayunk and Roxborough can look to retriever/poodle mix Teddie as their four-legged leader.
    NewsWorks’ Kim Paynter was there as the dogs were crowned. They and their owners will help the Water Department educate people about picking up dog waste to keep Philadelphia’s waterways clean.
