dog spotted.

around 1:30pm today i was walking out of morgan crossing and spotted a small dog running around. looked like some sort of chihuahua mix. pretty skittish, no tags or collar. he was running up and down morgan. haven't seen any posts about anyone missing him, but figured i'd let everyone know!

    Why is allowing your dog of a leash so epidemic in Pilsen?

    I got out of my car and picked a dog up off the street and was on my way to Animal Care and Control with that little dog when a neighbor waved me down and told me it was their neighbors dog. No answer on the door so the neighbor took it off me.
    Leash Law crackdowns are increasing.
    2 residents are in court now seeking damages for dogs off leash who killed their pets.
    One large dog ravaged a small dog that died a few days later of injuries.
    Another dog attacked and killed a residents cat.
    The Leash Law applies to cats also.
    If the cat not inside, as it should be, or off your property a neighbor
    can have a CPD Officer come to your house and levy a fine.
    I photograph dogs off leash in Pilsen.

    I know some people may disagree, but if you can't keep your dog on a leash when outside of your property then you shouldn't have a dog!

    You never know what can happen, your dog can get hit by a car, or cause an accident, get injured or stolen and possibly used as a bait dog. I keep an eye on my dog in my locked yard, the only place he's allowed off leash other than sanctioned off leash parks or dog beaches.

    And get your cat or dog a Microchip (free with 10$ store purchase) there is a thread posted already on the Pet Supplies plus event. If you can't make it to Elston there is one by Milwaukee & Ashland, you can call and see if they're doing it too.

New billboard on Archer near Halsted...

Has anyone noticed what is presumably a new billboard going up on Archer across from the Halsted Orange line station? Besides these things generally being eyesores... I fear it's going to be square in the nice view of town from Palmisano Park.

  • Thanks for checking it out.

  • That's good to hear. I really loathed that tacky 'Your wife is hot, fix your AC' billboard that was in the view to the East for so long.

Support McGuane Park

The roof is leaking again, the park needs to be cleaned up and your park needs you. Take an hour and come to the council meeting at 6:00 pm, Monday, April 13, at the McGuane field house.

  • Geri retired ARRT

    It really needs a good scrubbing, esp. the pool areas, including the locker rooms. It'd be nice to redo the swim locker rooms....the showers are filthy.

  • lifelonger been here; done it all..

    So true. I stopped going there because of the filth and unprofessionalism. No one seems to care. I sense a lack of leadership. The pool is filthy, never open on time and rules are not followed. No one smiles at you. I work nights and could not attend the meeting. How did it go?

  • Mary 17 year Bridgeport resident

    It will take time and support by residents but it can be done. The PAC is talking to patrons and asking them to join and sign up for emails about McGuane. We now have a basketball team and another in the fall; we are teaching soccer and are looking for dance instructors and other volunteers to help with promotion, concessions and fund raising. Anyone interested should stop at the front desk at the field house and sign up as a "Friend of McGuane".

Found Dog

This dog was found wandering on Cullerton near Oakley. She was wearing a harness and is friendly. She knew some commands so is certainly someone's pet. We could not keep her, so she was turned in to Chicago Animal Care & Control at 2700 S. Western. She will be held on stray hold for 3 days for her owners to claim her. After 3 days she is available for rescues to pull her. After 5 days she becomes eligible for euthanasia.

Please share so that her owners can claim her.

    FYI, I have posted on CraigsList, Lost Dogs Illinois and here. I have also put up flyers.

    As stated in my original post, she is friendly. She is a large pit bull/boxer mix.

    As for the comments about CACC, it is an open-access shelter, meaning that is legally required to take in every animal that is brought through its doors. That is about 20-25 thousand animals per year. Unfortunately, there are not enough homes for all of those pets, so euthanasia does occur. The current live rate for dogs is about 60%. The live rate for cats was about 90% earlier this year.

    If you would like to make a difference in the lives of these pets, here are some steps that you can take:
    - spay/neuter your own pets
    - adopt, don't shop for pets Plenty of great pets can be found for adoption at CACC or one of their partner rescues.
    - volunteer with CACC or one of the rescues that pulls from the CACC.
    - donate to one of the many animal rescues in town.
    - share information about lost pets and adoptables with your social media circle.

    Here is a good place to start for information:

    Cats are disproportionately killed at shelters. Friendly cats can appear to be feral, due to the environment. Uninterested or inexperienced staff members do not necessarily scan cats, pit bulls, rotties, etc. for microchips (first hand experience), regardless of the ordinance that says they will/must. Taking any animal there during the recent outbreak of canine flu (which the CDC now reports can be transmitted to cats) is a death sentence itself. DO NOT take puppies or kittens to any of these open access shelters at this time. Find another way, foster if you can. If you contact a rescue and volunteer to foster the animal you find, most times they will provide medical and other supplies as long as you can keep the animal in your home until they can find another foster home or it's adopted from your home. AWL, ACS or CACC are not places for seniors or babies of any species on a good day, with this outbreak it's worse.

Unofficial Poll-Watchers = Poll-Parasites?

-The guys hanging out in front of polling places and occasionally passing out ballot cards. I have lived, worked and voted in cities throughout the United States and Chicago's are the worst I have experienced. Personally, I find them creepy. Is there any evidence that they are effective in swaying votes? If not, is it a vestigial limb of clan-culture?

  • FGFM What the Cappleman!

    Fioretti had half a dozen union goons at each polling place when he first got elected.

  • BPR

    I think this question has serious merit. I feel like there is a sort of intimidation factor involved. It would be a good question for Curious City on WBEZ.
