Dogs out in the cold

I live on Melrose between Lakewood and Southport, and there is a family two doors to the west of us who leaves their little terrier out in the cold. It's never for more than two hours, but he is clearly miserable and barks the entire time. I just wanted to remind people that short-haired dogs are not equipped to stay out in the cold for long! (Dogs that were bred for cold are ok. I saw a Samoyed in a car with the window rolled down last night, and he appeared to be loving it). Please keep your short-haired pets inside as much as possible when it is cold out, especially if they contribute to noise pollution :-)

  • Molly, have you said something to your neighbors??

  • @ BP Resident: I don't think people who live in a two million dollar home really need to be told that it's inconsiderate and cruel to leave a barking dog outside in winter. They know exactly what they're doing. They simply don't care.

Rooftop Deck -Permit

Hello,

I'm interested in building a rooftop deck on top of a 3 unit condominium. Can anyone share any tips on the permit/inspection process?

Much appreciated

  • Eblock10 Lakeview Resident

    Thanks for all the feedback! The home owners assistance program seems like a great place to start.

  • Chris T 10 year Lincoln Square/Ravenswood resident.

    When I moved into my 25 unit condo 10 years ago we looked into adding a deck. We never got to the real pricing but our building insurance alone would have gone up a lot.

  • Michael Bucktown Resident

    This "Airborn" fellow has posted very similar ads in Bucktown (looking for house in Bucktown) and Lincoln Park (looking for house in Lincoln Park) sections of EB too. Not sure what his or her agenda is, but surely finding a realtor in Chicago shouldn't be a problem. EB is not the right forum for this.
