Free grooming or day care for your dog...

Hi Everyone, Happy Hounds is going for a second try on a crowd-funded loan so they can open a second location. If you already take your pet to Happy Hounds then you know it is in good hands.

Not only are they offering to pay back with interest, but some of the perks include free grooming or many days of day care for your pet. I invite everyone to take a look at their campaign. http://bit.ly/1tFYjYo

Car upside down on Webster

Yesterday, around 5:30pm there was a car upside down on Webster and Wayne- seemed to be a terrible car accident, though I have no idea how a car could end up windshield down on the pavement. We called 9-1-1 but the paramedics were already on their way.

Does anyone know what happened/if everyone was ok?

Best Auto Repair Shop

I just wanted to let everyone know how much I like my auto repair place. Yes, that's right, a compliment, not a complaint. I started visiting Accurate Imports about 20 years ago. Rudy and Robert, two German guys, ran the place at Lincoln and Wrightwood. Several years ago when R&R retired, the workers, Oscar and his team, took over the business. It's now at 4329 W. Addison, a bit beyond Lincoln Park but well worth the drive. They do excellent work, are incredibly honest and have reasonable rates. Today I needed them to pull a screw out of my tire, insert a plug and add air. Total bill - $0.00!! I love these guys.

    Did they place a "plug" through the tire or did they glue a "patch" over the hole from the inside? The proper repair would have been a patch. If they put in a plug, they damaged your tire. A patch would be safer.

  • Bob, you are right, the old style plugs caused a lot of problems. But, my guys are very sharp and up on the latest products. There is a new type of plug that is kind of stringy. It is safe for tires and works as well as or better than a patch.

Crazy Neighbor

An older woman recently moved in around the block. She yells at anyone whose dog uses the bathroom on the lawn area that borders the street and sidewalk, which is outside her window. I understand that this is not her property, the city owns it. Recently she was outside following me and pouring bleach all over the grass.

An older woman recently moved in around the block. She yells at anyone whose dog uses the bathroom on the lawn area that borders the street and sidewalk, which is outside her window. I understand that this is not her property, the city owns it. Recently she was outside following me and pouring bleach all over the grass. My husband has seen her sprinkling what we hope is only red pepper. None of this has stopped the dogs from using the bathroom on this stretch of grass. All of us dog owners are getting fed up with her harassment and we are worried she is going to start putting poison on the grass. We don't know if we should call the police or what to do. Has anyone been in this situation? Any advice?

  • Pouring bleach on your parkway, doing harm to your own grass just to do serious harm to someone elses pet is the definition of spite. People who behave like this do not have empathy for others and the bond they have with their pet. I am sure no one is intentionally trying to do harm to her parkway, so it's alarming that she is intentionally trying to do harm to animals. Sounds like a crazy lady to me.
