Dog boarding 6577 Avondale

I posted last week about this. Have to again. When walking my dog today, the barking was unbelievable. I heard a man scold a dog, and then I heard a dog whimper. Broke my heart. I called 911 but not sure they showed. I waited 10 min. In that 10 min, a white van showed with dog crates in the back. They slid the gate open..van pulled in, and they immediately shut the gate. They saw me watching. Please, if you see anything call 911. If this were a legit doggie daycare, why are they hiding everything behind the fence and have tarps covering the chain link fence? People aren't dropping their dogs off, a van is. So concerned.

    Lo..for your $$$ your dogs are being transported to a paved parking lot for their outdoor exercise. No visible shade, but very little of the facility is open to public eye. Never have seen the inside, even though I wanted to check it out for my own pups but I found the owner evasive and not very forthcoming with basic info so I ruled her out.

    And please don't compare this business to a dog park. There is an ebb and flow to a dog park. This place seems to operate at capacity for the duration of business hours.

    And it's smelly. Very smelly. I'd check it out if I were you. Pics of your pooch enjoying the pool do not tell the whole story of the cleanliness of the place. Another reason why I decided not to pursue the place for my dogs. Dog flu is still with us; do you have any info on how often the facility is cleaned? Most dog parks have a substrate that is easily sanitized. Don't think this is the case here.
    As you don't live near the place it's easy to love it. You are removed from the noise and odor.
    So, based on the odor, the noise and the fact that these guys don't seem to care that they're a bit of a nuisance in a neighborhood setting, my pups will go elsewhere.

Post Office On Northwest HWY

Do I live on the Northside? Yes, Yes I do, so why when I drive past the Post Office it looks like a vacant building? The grass/weeds are almost 3 feet in some places. Do they NOT own a lawn mower? Can our Alderman go and have a chat with the owner or the building? I keep my lawn looking nice.

    N.W. hy p.o., I once gave them a vacation hold on my mail, given to them well in
    advance. When i returned the Mail was just piled up in my mail box, front door. When
    i went in there to complain, i was told my zip code 60656, was not in their area. I should of gone to Lawrence Ave P.O., SO, why didn't the mail clerk at N.W. Hwy. tell me that at the time, plus she had time to mail it to Lawrence Ave. She probably threw
    it out. The mail clerk, was rude, mean, chatted recipes with other employees and customers, and the line is at least 10 deep. Who cares if the Post Office goes to reduced hours. They don't do a good job anyway. No wonder why people pay their
    bills on line. (By the way - next trip. I did get Lawrence ave to hold my mail - it worked)

    the reason that the "workers" (using the term lightly) didn't tell you that you must go to a different P.O. is because they are either lazy or stupid; and, personally, I feel that it is mostly lazy, some stupidity and also: lets not forget that they know that they can not be fired because of their race. Cause it is racist to fire an incompetent lazy so called protected race. There are places in this country still where the USPS actually does its job and does it well. My hometown of 04553, for instance. Of course, the state of Maine is quite WASPy and I feel that this accounts for the great work ethic and fine delivery system that the USPS still practices in this state.

Dog boarding on Avondale

In the past few days dogs have been barking from a commercial building - 6577 Avondale. I looked through the fence which they have blocked with tarp, and noticed at least 20 dogs outside in the concrete parking lot. I stopped a nice Chicago cop and he said Napolitano is aware of it but doesn't take office for another week.

In the past few days dogs have been barking from a commercial building - 6577 Avondale. I looked through the fence which they have blocked with tarp, and noticed at least 20 dogs outside in the concrete parking lot. I stopped a nice Chicago cop and he said Napolitano is aware of it but doesn't take office for another week. After further research, I found out that Mary O'Connor issued a boarding license to this address. There are also people living upstairs in the commercial building. If it's legit, and the dogs are taken care of, good. BUT, from what I saw I'm concerned. There is a van that pulls into this gated property off-loading dogs. They're roaming in a gated concrete area. Please call 911, like I did, if you are concerned.

I feel that the people who send there pets there need to know that they are putting the dogs in danger because no matter what the weather they are outside with no shelter from heat sun rain cold and soon to be snow.
I get so mad everytime i walk past. Ive tried to look in and you cant see anything. This only proves they are trying to hide somet hide something. Why is the sign missing?
It makes me sick. I emailed ald.Napolotono hopefully he will do something soon
I do know she had a place someplace else had to close and thats why shes here. The old place was A dogs world.

  • I received a response for Ald. Mel's ward office;
    best time to do so would be during Ward Nights every monday from 5-7pm. (First come first serve). Next monday our office will be closed for Memorial Day so the next Ward Night will be June 6th. It's def. worth a try.

  • Sorry guys; pasted feedback on wrong thread. As we're having a very similar issue in our neighborhood. This place is running a puppy mill! It's nuts. And very , very sad

    We are looking for someone to provide in home guitar lessons on the weekend if anyone knows of someone. My 13 yr old son had lessons at Old School, but it would be good to have someone come to our house as my husband may want instruction as well. Any freelancers out there?

  • Michael Mroz, the music teacher at St. Juliana, just emailed that he will teach advanced drums, guitar, and bass guitar; as well as beginner to intermediate piano. Should you have any questions about in-home, weekly, summer music lessons for your child (1st through 8th grade), or are already interested in giving it a go, don't hesitate to reach out: Mroz.michael1@gmail.com. He would probably welcome adult students, too!

  • Bob in Edison Park Retired Firefighter

    Values in Edison Park are similar to Harlem and Addison area. Not to knock that area, but Edison Park has a lot more to offer that there or even Oriole Park area. It`s my opinion I`m not trying to offend anyone else`s neighborhood. When a ranch here goes for 300K something is wrong.

  • Bob
    Oh wow, I did not realize this. Harlem and Addison has beautiful homes as well.
    But I agree with you EP has a lot more to offer. Parks, schools, restaurants and seems to be close net community. Many Officers and fireman families.
    I've been on the look out on an MLS, but haven't really seen anything that we wouldn't have to completely remodel.
