Overnight Dog Care

My 7 year old fur baby (chihuahua) is in need of overnight care in September. Up until now, we have been fortunate enough to have my parents around to watch her when we go away (or we stay in pet friendly hotels) but for our upcoming trip in September, we have neither of those options available to us.

Can anyone recommend any boarding facilities and/or any dog caretakers to take care of our pup?

  • I take my girls to the barking lot and am really pleased with the staff. We've been going for over 5 years now.

    Paradise 4 paws is another nice option. It's near the airports and have had 24 hour pick up.

  • Harmless, really... ...but you never know.

    Look for "A Grrreat Escape!" on Rover.com!

Loose Dog

There was a dog running west on Logan and then south on Francisco at about 850am this morning. She looked like a Boxer, reddish in color, skin and bones and cropped ears. She wouldn't come to me but she looked tired. Please keep your eye out for her and try to help her.

  • PetParent Founder of Pets Are Like Family

    Someone else posted this about a lost boxer:

    "Please contact me if you see my lost dog. She appears to be trying to find her way back home; please don't chase her as she will run away 773-419-5384."

  • boxer (from thread with phone number) has returned home.

Packages getting stolen?

I live on springfield near koz park.... Is anyone else having issues with porch thieves? I've had 3 confirmed packages disappear from my porch and they couldn't have been there very long. Really frustrating and wondering if anyone has noticed anything or experienced this.

I guess it's time for a PO box :/

  • Since you're on Springfield, it would be easy to have packages delivered to the "UPS access point" at the Jimenez market too, they will accept your package and you can pick it up there instead of having it delivered and promptly stolen. I've thought about it since I'm also close to there, but have been lucky so far.

  • C. M. D. Avondale Triangle resident

    I have packages held at the UPS or FedEx local stores when I'm not going to be home, depending on how a package is shipped. Doesn't cost me anything. In fact, if I have a package shipped via FedEx to the FedEx store, it's cheaper than if I have them deliver it to my house.

Armitage and whipple

Lots of cops and traffic. Assuming an accident, but the cops are out with flashlights up and down the middle of the street....any idea what's going on?

  • Music Lounge's windows are boarded up and there are two glass shatter patterns on the door that look as though they may have been caused by bullets, although I suppose they could have been caused by something else like debris from a crash.

  • Those boards were put up earlier in the day... I went by at like 6:45 pm with my dog and they were putting up the boards. They said they were getting new windows.

Trees Removed from Front of 2211 N Milwaukee Ave. This is the PMG 6 Story 120 Unit Construction Site

I noticed that all the tree on Milwaukee Ave in front of the 6 Story 120 Unit PMG Construction Site at 2211 N Milwaukee Ave has been cut down and removed. I assume that they will be replaced once the building has been built but I don't know if this will happen. Does anyone have any info about the tree removals? Was it legal for PMG to remove city trees on the walkway?

  • Jeff Linden Pl

    Cut down for ash bore?

  • Joe Kopera Logan Square resident since 1961 (54 years in Jan)

    Jeff is that a fact or a guess. I know ash bore is a problem. I talked with Raymond, Moreno's chief of staff and they didn't know anything about it. He did say that if they took them down for construction that they would have to replace them once that construction is done.

Ivy removal

I have a two-story brick building that has ivy overgrown on it. Can anyone recommend a service that does this? Do I hire a landscaper or tuck pointer to handle this?

Found gray cat

Found the sweetest little gray cat on Logan blvd across from New Wave Coffee. It had a raspy voice and was extremely friendly. It had a collar with bells, but no tags. I can't take him in, but hopefully his owners see this and know where to look.

  • A woman named Angel is missing a cat that fits this description. She's unable to post to the site but has asked that anyone with information please contact her ASAP at (224) 730-8188.

    Charlie, is the cat currently in your possession?

  • I am currently in Los Angeles, which is why I couldn't do more to help the little guy. Everything I know about it is in my post. If anyone has any updates, please let me know. It broke my heart to leave him, but I had no choice.

Man arrested by 14th District Chicago Police Officers at 1141 N. Milwaukee Avenue

Police arrested a man at 1141 N. Milwaukee Avenue, after police responded to a call of a man shooting off a rifle that was covered in a white sheet. A handgun was recovered by police at Division and Cleaver. An unidentified witnessed identified two other suspected gang members who were at that time attempting to gain entry into a row house inside Noble Square. The rifle was taken by one of these two.

This showed up on my neighbors garage. Can anyone provide insight on what gangs these tags represent? Is it worth calling 311 or just leave it up to my neighbor? This is a peaceful block and this is not welcome.

    I live on the 2100 block of N. Oakley, and my neighbor a few doors down had his bike stolen off his second floor balcony, too! It was on a Sunday (Memorial Day weekend) in the middle of the day, and his downstairs neighbor caught a glimpse of the guy riding away. He left a crappy bike in its place, I guess. They've seen him walking around the alleys (casing the neighborhood?) during the day, and my neighbor was trying to tail him to alert a cop. Not sure if it's the same guy, but I'll let you know if we hear anything else! So sorry about your bike––mine was stolen back in the fall, and it's such a bummer. :(

Two Loose Dogs on Palmer and Central Park

I saw two loose dogs at 6:30 this morning on Palmer and Drake running towards Central Park. One was a light tan chihuahua and the other was a darker brown, longer-haired dog, maybe a long-haired chihuahua. I wasn't able to catch up to them, but here is a not-so-good picture in case anyone recognizes them. You can zoom in on them. They turned and looked at me, but when I started to move towards them they turned and ran.

  • Could be a chihuahua who lives on Medill, close to the corner of Medill and Central Park, can't exactly tell from that picture. He runs out of the yard and follows me half way to Tonys some days. He always turns back around and goes home

Holstein Park Fenced Off

Does anyone know when the main park area will be reopened? We're losing summer weekend time.

  • Tay Maria Bucktown resident; in the business of sci-fi

    They said new sod was being laid down, hence the moving of all the Movies in the Park to Churchill. I think it's going to take a bit of time. Sorry!

  • The new grass they placed a month ago is already shin-high. How much longer than this does sod need to take?

    I glad they did this, it was needed, but next time they shouldn't dump 10-15 truckloads of nasty dirty snow in the park.

  • the grass field will be closed all summer while the sod takes root, the length of the blades of grass has nothing to do with the fact that it is still very fragile underneath. we neighbors have been asking for this for over 10 years and now that the new sod is in we want to protect the asset and make sure its around for a long time

Marisol Needs $28 For A Tow Truck

At 5:30 a frantic woman ran up to me saying she needed $28 to pay a tow truck. Her aunt has been in a wreck and is at the hospital. She's lived at 3301 (Schubert) for 12 years and will pay me back double. She's seen me before when she's been out walking her gray poodle.
I've never seen this woman or her dog. I confirmed with other residents at 3301 that there is no Marisol.
She's about 5'4" dark hair, dark tan complexion. Wearing black shirt and black Capri pants. Has a tatto of praying hands.

Okay, so shoes have been hanging over a power line on Rockwell, just south of Fullerton, for a while now (many months, anyway, can't quite recall when I first noticed them). I know there are different explanations for this, but I assume this means drugs are sold nearby (though this way of communicating seems bizarrely old school to me). I do get the sense, based on some things I've seen in the past few months, that there is more drug/illegal activity on my block than there used to be. Yesterday I noticed a new pair of shoes strung up on another line just a bit south, less than 1/2 block away.

Any insights or thoughts here? Or noticed anything similar on other blocks?

    Jess, I highly doubt the shoes have anything to do with drug spots or anything like that. Years ago, when a gang would catch one of their oppositions in the neighborhood, they would take the guys shoes and toss them up as a sort of 'come get some' bit of chest pounding. To alleviate your concerns, while some of the younger punks may be goofy at times, they most likely would not want to set themselves out by indicating where they sell, for the world to know. That would open themselves up to trouble and identification from the authorities. Most likely in today's era, it is probably young bucks killing time.

  • This is a long tradition done by college kids or young adults as a joke. They take their friends shoes and throw them up there. It has absolutely nothing to do with drug dealing. It is done in every city in the country.

Those tracks were a common spot for gang members to shoot at police and rival gang members. It was difficult to patrol because police cars couldn't get through the brush and navigate the rail road tracks. Whenever there was a shooting, the CPD had to get up there on foot,many blocks away. and work their way to the scene from opposite directions.

    Time for honesty. If I were standing..anywhere and my husband, friend or co worker were being verbally heckled while they were giving a speech I would have applauded EXACTLY. The same way. AND SO WOULD YOU!

    All he did was clap Proudly for his wife while looking at the women who was trash talking. He didn't move closer to her, he didn't get in her face..he clapped. He never acted drunk, what he did was peacefully walk away from crazy people yelling at him.

    The guy shooting the video, I believe he is Joseph, made a big stink on another thread about how he had nothing to hide and that he would post the unedited video(that supposedly showed how "drunk the racist was") the "unedited" video, I believe it's 4 of 5 on his you tube page shows Tracy walking up to the podium, then.... CUT to the end of her speech.
    It was pointed out a few times that the video was edited, Joseph never acknowledged my comments about the video, nor did he ever put up the unedited video.
    Clearly, this leaves me to assume he edited the video so we couldn't see or hear the attacks and harassments being directed at the pro Riot Fest folks/Tracy. If the video showed what the anti RF folks claimed..The unedited version would be up.

    And a big F :-) ck you, if you're going to say you wouldn't have done the same if someone you knew was being heckled during their search.
