Big Dig Articles in the Globe Today

Yes, it is very likely that the bridge will be open to vistors again, as today's lead editorial suggested and as reported here.

Robert Campbell has been reporting on how other cities such as Paris and Barcelona use their opportunites to develop public spaces, and today he looks at what San Francisco is doing with its waterfront. This part is especially interesting, talking about the new ballpark on the bay:

If a player hits a foul into the harbor, the ball is retrieved by a team of Portuguese water dogs. I'm not making this up.
Maybe Boston needs Portuguese water dogs, too.

Do Portuguese Water Dogs come in a toxics-resistant breed? Yikes.

Not sure about that
But here's more information:

Known for centuries along Portugal's coast, this seafaring breed was prized by fishermen for a spirited, yet obedient nature, and a robust, medium build that allowed for a full day's work in and out of the water. The Portuguese Water Dog is a swimmer and diver of exceptional ability and stamina, who aided his master at sea by retrieving broken nets, herding schools of fish, and carrying messages between boats and to shore. He is a loyal companion and alert guard. This highly intelligent utilitarian breed is distinguished by two coat types, either curly or wavy; an impressive head of considerable breadth and well proportioned mass; a ruggedly built, well-knit body; and a powerful, thickly based tail, carried gallantly or used purposefully as a rudder. The Portuguese Water Dog provides an indelible impression of strength, spirit, and soundness.
