My Brittany sustained bite wounds from an incident that occurred with a Border Collie mix a couple blocks East of Damen near the new RR Park.

An unleashed border collie mix ran up to my dog while he was being walked by our dog walker. My dog was spooked and they began fighting. They were separated and the dogs owner (or walker) said the dog had shots. As my dog walker began checking my dog, the owner who had head phones on began walking away. At the time my dog walker did not notice any wounds and did not get a chance to get any of the owners info. Once he removed the collar he noticed the open wound that was hidden underneath.

My dog sustained two open bite wound injuries on the neck, bruising and missing fur on various locations. I now have a vet bill of $165.88 that I would like paid by the border collie's owner. If you are the owner or know the owner of this dog, please contact me.

    That's horrible.

  • By "RR Park", do you mean Walsh Park? Sorry to hear about the incident.

  • I'm so sorry that happened to your dog. I've noticed a lot of people walking with unleashed dogs and unless you are in your own yard or a dog park, it is completely unacceptable. Many have run up barking to my dog, which is terrifying. Even non-aggressive dogs can become defensive when they are on a leash and the other dog isn't.

"Fresh Market" on Western, formerly known as Danny's

Does anyone know anything about the "Fresh Market" being built on Western? It's at about Western and Shakespeare, across from a small strip mall. It seems to have been in the works for a while, not quite sure if they're making too much progress. I live nearby but wanted to see if anyone had the inside scoop.

Thanks!

  • Hey Paul,
    I'm really excited about your new location, it's right across the street from me! Do you have any updates about opening? Sorry to hear about the grease fire set back.

  • nearthehighway i live in Logan Square

    looking forward to the new grocery only 3 blocks from my house! i'm tired of fighting traffic to get to Marianos, etc. Also, i've noticed the smaller grocery stores have better produce at better prices (like Fresh Farms in Niles).

Follow up from locking your tires.

These jerk offs are still trying to get at my wrangler spare. Happened on early Saturday morning. My tire cover is pulled back and there was some scratches on my wheel lock. Looks like that they are just trying to get it off with a lug wrench. I have Mopar wheel locks on my spare. Anyone suggest a better lock? I'm gonna have an alarm system put it soon. I need a garage!!!

  • They got my friend's tire Saturday night:(. Go to a tire shop and get a cheap used spare on a basic rim. Keep the locking lug nuts on it and cover it. They won't want it then and you won't have to worry about it. They have been sweeping the city lately.

  • I'm curious. What does the tire thief do with the tire once it's stolen? Who buys it? Also, are there alarms for spares? Thanks.

  • So be on the lookout for two minivans. One is an astro van. My friend saw these guys in action but had to keep a distance as he was by himself. He's a dog walker and sees these guys on occasion. I know it's them because my gf was getting...

    So be on the lookout for two minivans. One is an astro van. My friend saw these guys in action but had to keep a distance as he was by himself. He's a dog walker and sees these guys on occasion. I know it's them because my gf was getting in the jeep in the early am and saw two vans passing by slowly. One was playing the lookout and the one was up to something. It was the same day my tire was messed with. My friend is gonna try to snap a shot at the license plate the next chance he gets.

Lock you tires!

I recently had my spare tire stolen off my Jeep Wrangler. I did not have it locked as I bought it new and didn't think twice of it. This was me not thinking. I replaced my spare and bought locks and a tire cover. I have found my cover pulled back twice already when going back to it in am. Neighbors be aware.

  • My husband's was stolen yesterday off his jeep liberty. His was locked and had a cover on it.

  • Happened to my Honda CRV a few weeks ago too. Reported to police but looks like they swept the area.

Time to plant parkway trees

Fall is the best time to plant trees. Home Depot on Elston has all their trees half price. I picked up a 12 foot red maple shade tree and they only charged me $8 so that might have been 75% off. The lady working the garden center said this is the time Home Depot needs to get rid of their tree stock. Don't mean to sound like an ad for Home Depot but I didn't go there to buy a tree but ended up with one. The root balls are small so digging a hole for it should be simple. No need to deal with the city either.

  • Don't forget "right tree, right place!" A tree planted in the wrong area for the type of tree species could have bad consequences for the tree's life and the surrounding area. That being said, we can never have enough trees and this seems like a great deal!

  • mwalcheske Enthusiast

    Bought 4 evergreens from Home Depot a few years back and all 4 died quickly. I returned them, got my $ back, bought 4 more of the same varietal from a local garden shop, and today all 4 are healthy and thriving. I learned my lesson. I tried to save $ by getting my trees at Home Depot, but it didn't work out. I've heard others say the same thing about buying their trees from them as well. Just food for thought.

  • Hey. I saw him Tues. He's a big kitty, right? I saw him sitting on the railing near the picnic area at Cortland and Damen. Right outside that juice bar. It was about eight o'clock at night. Sorry I couldn't be more help, but figured you'd like to know he's still out there, and not very far away. I'll keep an eye out, for sure.
