Can we help this dog? Is Kate (who helped abandoned dog, Susie) still on EB?

I'm posting this in all three of my EB neighborhoods....
This is heartbreaking. Let's please try to help this older 'gorgeous rottweiler' that was dumped by his/ her supposed pet parent (there must be a special place in hell reserved for people this heartless). I'm hoping that at the very least, someone like Kate might be able to at least find a foster home. Sounds like this poor dog might not survive otherwise.

homeless

I do have sympathy for the homeless. Many are down on their luck, are Vets, some have various illness's. But too many of them are saying "shelters are dangerous". They won't let me keep my dogs. If you can afford to feed a couple of dogs you should be able to house yourself. Or I don't want to leave my boyfriend/girlfriend. Between the two of you, you should be able to live somewhere. Too many lame excuses.

    Mute, I still don't understand how an article about one person on the sex offender list has to do with all homeless people making poor choices. There are so many issues related to homelessness. Mental illness, lack of family support and safety net, substance abuse, child abuse. The street becomes their safety net if that is all they know. That is their community and it is scary to lose it. It takes a lot of support which is dearly lacking.

  • You are correct. There's just one bad apple out there. My bad.

Lincoln Towing Hauls Author's Car Away From Her Own Book Launch Party

Cheryl Reed, a former Chicago journalist who is now a professor at Syracuse University in New York, celebrated the launch of her debut novel, "Poison Girls," at Women and Children First bookstore, 5233 N. Clark St., on Sept. 15 with a reading and a reception.

    LT is everything everyone says it is. Here is the rub...so are the other rendering companies. LT is just the big boy...the oldest...and dominates the North side market where its fair to say people know how to complain.

    Pawar is doing the right thing by not just going after LT but introducing a towing bill of rights. We need new litigation, its tricky because it also involves private property rights.

    LT is a formidable foe, how many companies could have survived an adversary like old man Daley?

  • I'm confused as this is a call lot.

Friend's car missing: please be on the lookout

A friend's car has gone missing from its parking spot on the street near Foster and Magnolia. He has checked with the impound lot and filed a police report. Can we please get some eyes on the street for a 1998 Acura Integra, dark blue, license plate Y913023?

Thanks!

  • Does it have a Catalytic converter? Chicago is #1 in the country for stolen Catalytic converters. This happened to one of our cars and we found it abandoned 1 block away. You may want to go up and down blocks in your area and see if it was dumped. Good luck we will keep a look out.

  • Watson Former north-sider, now South Looper

    Update: the car was found near 7900 S. Harlem. It was stripped of everything that could be stripped -- engine, door handles, door panels, gear shift, spoiler. The car seat was taken and the trunk emptied (nothing of value in it, luckily).

    It was found, ticketed and towed by the Bridgeview police dept. before my friend even knew it was stolen, and because there's no communication between Bridgeview and the Chicago PD on stolen vehicles he got a $50 ticket and (wait for it) $1,350 in storage charges after the tow. He's letting State Farm argue that.

Shrubbery?

I feel like the Knights who say Ni... (Monty Python reference) but I want to get some kind of hedge plant/shrub to grow into a chain link fence. I have seen other neighbors doing it and I love the way it looks (there is a ranch at Balmoral and Ashland that has done this successfully)

any ideas where to buy said shrubs at an affordable price? I love Gethsemane but I would not consider them affordable to buy 10-20 evergreens.

Thoughts about here or out in the burbs or even Wisconsin/Indiana on where to go to get hearty type shrubs?

  • K in North Center longtime North Side resident

    There's a garden center on Elston around Irving, but I confess that I don't recall the name of it.
