Consistent Barking

4600 block of Lawndale. There is a dog inside a building somewhere who consistently barks for an hour, sometimes more, almost every single morning. Not only is it annoying, but I'm concerned about the welfare of the dog. What can be done?

  • He's probably lonely. We have neighbors whose dog barked for hours because they had left him alone.

Stolen Dog

Stolen Dog Alert! If you have walked down the 4100 block of Central Park you might have bet Griffin, the large black lab in the fenced in yard. Sometime in the last 90 minutes the back gate was broken into and he was stolen. The owners will send me a photo soon but I wanted to get the word out ASAP. Please be on the lookout for a large black lab. He was stolen from the alley between CP and Monticello. He is the nicest dog in the world and we all need him back on our block!-Red collar, white chest. Very large, very sweet. Photo below.

  • :-) Griffin may need to get a refresher in "Guard Dog Basics: The do's and don'ts of protecting a home."

    Rule #1: When someone is trying to break into your owner's property, bark loudly and fiercely. Act very angry.
    Rule #2: Do not run away.... :-)

    Just joking! Sure glad Griffin is found safe and sound. Sounds like a traumatic day for that family. Getting the dog back probably was a huge relief. Thanks for letting us know.

  • Thank God!!! Glad they went down to Animal Control and got him back so soon!

Has anyone lost a really friendly brown tabby kitty--no collar, no chip?

My neighbors were feeding a really friendly kitty for 3 weeks. No collar. I took her in and had her scanned. No chip. I haven't seen any signs or seen any notices.

  • Hi- I think I saw a flyer with similar description in Ravenswood Animal Hospital this week. It may be for this cat. You could call them and just ask what the flyer says. They are on Montrose near California.

    That's why she's a captain and why everyone in a boat needs to where PFDs. My sympathies go out to all involved.
