Farewell Dear Neighbors

It’s been a good run here on Everyblock. May you all do well and be safe. Thank you for being caring neighbors.

    Having seen the conversations from other neighborhoods, I'm grateful that our share of trolls and racists was relatively low. Relatively.

(Presumed) dog walker abusing dog @ Oakley/Addison

Hi All -
I am desperately trying to get this info out!

Last Tuesday (the 19th) around 1pm I witnessed what looked to be animal abuse in the area by (what I think) a dog walker. I love dogs, especially Golden Retrievers so this was definitely unsettling. As I look back, I definitely should have called 311 or atleast said something but did not want to cause any more issues.

This happened at the corner of Oakley & Addison. The (presumed) walker came down Oakley towards Addison, away from Waveland, at this point the dog laid down and the walker kicked it a few times. The dog then got up and they crossed over Oakley where the dog laid down again and the walker continued to kick the dog. They then walked down Oakley towards the school/Waveland.

I tried to follow them in hopes of seeing where the dog went to stop by later and inform the owner but unfortunately ran out of space/time and had to get to work.

If you know this dog or the owner, I strongly suggest showing them this video so this doesn’t happen again.

    Again, I'm sorry if my words bother you Christina. I'm trying to offer my opinions and suggestions and your words continue to be confusing and full of anger, and I'm not sure why. I think we have come to some good constructive conclusions on this forum.

Male Tabby Cat Found

I came across this little guy near the Cullom/Paulina intersection who seems too friendly to be a stray. Taking him into the vet later to see if he is chipped but wanted to post on here to see if anyone recognizes the little guy.

He's not fixed, has 3 white paws, under 1 year old and extremely friendly.

Welles Park Dog Park?

Thinking Welles Park needs a dog park or signs can't let your dog off leash and someone to ticket. Every morning on baseball diamonds and today we have a party of 5 dogs off leash with owners chatting. Was hoping to cut through park but will go around.

  • I couldn't agree more Cubs. My dog is always on a leash and I deal with this at Winnemac park regularly. Dogs off leash approach my dog as I'm walking him and if they run up to us, he feels threatened. (His eyesight is not great anymore). I would much prefer there were a fence around the unofficial dog park that's formed there so we all can enjoy the park.

  • The police don't always coordinate with the Park District management. This problem has to be addressed with the park supervisor. If you don't know who that is, go to the Chicago Park District website and look it up or click on CONTACT US on the home page and leave your complaint there.
