Wet dogs

    Voting has begun in the contest to name the Philadelphia Water Department’s spokesdog. Today, the NewsWorks crew will meet CoCo, a Boston terrier who’s competing with 54 other dogs for the coveted Roxborough/Manayunk title. The Water Department is looking for one dog each from Roxborough/Manayunk and East Falls who can team up with their owners to teach people about the importance of cleaning up pet waste to protect waterways.
