Found parakeet

Found a beautiful young parakeet in our yard last week. We are hoping to reunite him with his owner. Super healthy and happy bird. He sings beautifully and has a great personality.
Please email me if you are missing this budgie!

Dog sitter for my adorable cocker spaniel, El Toro

Hello. I'm having hip surgery and will be on crutches for about 6 weeks. I need to find someone to take care of my 4 year old cocker, El Toro, while recovery. I need to be mindful of the cost, as well as ensure my best buddy is well cared for. Please let me know if you have any suggestions/recommendations. Thank you.

  • Hopefully you can find someone who can walk your dog. I agree, 6 weeks is a long time to board a dog. If your have a Facebook account maybe you can do a dog walk log and some of your friends can sign off on days to help you with...

    Hopefully you can find someone who can walk your dog. I agree, 6 weeks is a long time to board a dog. If your have a Facebook account maybe you can do a dog walk log and some of your friends can sign off on days to help you with your fur baby. I love animals and if one of my friends needed someone to help walk their dog I would do it. At least it won't be overwhelming and maybe some friends may volunteer for more than one walk. Walking is great exercise and a stress reliever ! Good luck and wishing you a quick and pain free recovery .

  • Lita Peterson of Hello Kittie Sitting is great! She has taken really good care of my pets (even a special needs cat). Highly recommend.

Cat Sitter

Hello -

I'm looking for recommendations for a good cat sitter. I just need for someone to come over and check on her while I am out of town over the Labor Day weekend....actually returning on Wednesday.

She requires liquid medication daily at 7pm and is pretty good about taking it, as long as treats are involved, of course.

I will have all food, litter, treats, etc.

Live in Rogers Park East.

  • I highly recommend Pam's Pet Care. She's been looking after my two senior cats for 3 years and does all of the visits herself, unlike some of the big pet sitting services in the area, who may have one of many staff members stopping by on any given day. Pam's...

    I highly recommend Pam's Pet Care. She's been looking after my two senior cats for 3 years and does all of the visits herself, unlike some of the big pet sitting services in the area, who may have one of many staff members stopping by on any given day. Pam's rates are reasonable and she does other tasks around the apt. (taking in the mail, adjusting blinds, watering plants, etc.). Most importantly, she takes excellent care of my cats and makes sure they are in good hands while I'm away. She also checks in by text or e-mail after visits, often including pictures.

Fatal bacteria found in stagnant puddles

In June, I posted about a lost dog and received many kind comments from EB readers. We eventually located the original owner who had adopted the dog from Chicago Animal Care and Control but who had been forced to give the dog away when moving to a rental home that would not allow dogs. The dog was subsequently lost and I could not track down its most recent owner. We fell in love with the dog and decided to keep...

In June, I posted about a lost dog and received many kind comments from EB readers. We eventually located the original owner who had adopted the dog from Chicago Animal Care and Control but who had been forced to give the dog away when moving to a rental home that would not allow dogs. The dog was subsequently lost and I could not track down its most recent owner. We fell in love with the dog and decided to keep it. According to the original owner, his name was Cody and he was about to turn two in August.

Two weeks ago, Cody became very lethargic and lost his appetite. We took him to the vet the next day when we realized that he was not just under the weather. He went to the vet on Tuesday, was admitted for tests and died of acute liver and kidney failure overnight on Friday. By Monday, lab results had all been returned with the confirmation that Cody died of leptospirosis.

I am posting this because leptospirosis is a bacteria that is passed in the urine of an infected dog (or rodent) into puddles and then the puddle water is drunk by another animal. The incubation period can vary from several days to several weeks. We will never know if Cody drank from an infected puddle while he was lost and on the street, or if he got it from a wading pool at a dog park. We just want to make sure that dog owners are careful to make sure your pet does not drink from puddles when outside.

Vets are seeing a spike in lepto cases in Chicago, possibly because of the rise in the rat population. It should be noted that, while it is exceptionally rare, lepto can be picked up by little kids who play in puddles with infected water and then put their hands into their mouths. Cody was a great dog and we miss him, but more importantly, we want to be sure that other people don't lose their pets as well.

Dogs on beach

Here's the deal: The majority of dog owners do not train their dogs past a couple of basic behaviors. Most dogs may be able to do a few things in their home without distractions.

In order to let a dog off leash, at minimum, the dog must be able to come reliably while there are distractions, outdoors. Most dogs are not trained to this degree. Some dogs naturally stick with their owners but not all.

Here's the deal: The majority of dog owners do not train their dogs past a couple of basic behaviors. Most dogs may be able to do a few things in their home without distractions.

In order to let a dog off leash, at minimum, the dog must be able to come reliably while there are distractions, outdoors. Most dogs are not trained to this degree. Some dogs naturally stick with their owners but not all.

Polite society dictates that we don't invade other people's personal space, or worse, let our dogs jump all over someone or run at them aggressively. Can you guarentee that your dog will be under your verbal control? If not, your dog belongs on a leash.

Its not a matter of who is right. We already know that dogs are not allowed on the beach., Make sure your dog is well behaved or on a leash. It only takes one overconfident person who does not know what his dog is capable of to ruin it for all dogs.

Mad aboud RP, I'd be happy to give you some tips. There are no stubborn dogs. Its just that you haven't found a common language.
