Nothing about fighting for JBark's existence, but plenty of opportunity for other dog park plans to make their plug. No one has worked as hard and has sacrificed as much as we have to build and maintain a dog park on the southside ...and here it is, one of the best dog parks in the whole city (yet ironically not "official") but no peep about it? Let's just let it be bulldozed out of existence, shall we? WTF, SMH & LMAO XD I swear, the more I know about people, the better I like my dogs. At least the video and pics turned out nice, will likely bring more good puparents our way.

Angie RobertsonAs someone who has been working on getting a dog park on the south side for years, this is kind of overwhelming! I wonder if we could benefit from having our own South Side Dog Park PAC (like SLDOGPAC) so neighborhoods are coordinating in these efforts rather than competing against one another for funding.
Jackson BarkCholke has a flair for sensationalism. Based on all that we've gathered, nothing is for sure as of yet, nothing but proposals have been made. Plus, they have 30 million to raise before they can break ground on the golf course. So the time to step up our game, is now. There's no good reason for why we should be the ones to move, when there are by far better options on the table. www.jacksonbark.com/proposals.html

Amanda is now our most long term dog- and we just don't get it! We don't get it so much that we decided to help her find her family by adding her to our "Good Dog, Forever Dog" program. That means her adoption fee is waived for the right home, and she comes with a lifetime of free training!
Amanda is about 5 years old and the most easy going dog you can imagine in the home. She likes to cuddle, watch movies, go for walks and have some play time. She loves people of all ages and is always excited to meet them. Her one hang up is she is pretty leash reactive with dogs so we're looking for a home that isn't in a super congested area with a lot of dogs. We will provide a great trainer to work on the issues if you can provide a committed home!
Please share Amanda- it's time she find a home of her own!

A huge thank-you to Jocelin Carranza for initiating the cleanup at Coliseum Park Dog Run, and for doing most* of the work today! And thanks to three volunteers who helped out at Fred Anderson Park Dog Park, despite the late start!
We also installed new bag dispensers supported by Wag! Walking, so please, use 'em up! As always, if the dispensers are empty, please text to let us know.
*A huge thanks to the mysterious cleaner-upper of leaves before we even started. ... See MoreSee Less
Red and Howling Keep your pets safe inside and turn some music on during these next few days, seems 4th of July is a week long event in Chicagoland. It might also be a good idea to keep your walks close to home in case your pup gets freaked out by an unexpected barrage of fireworks in the alley. I know mine would quickly drag me back home if this were to happen to us again... ... See MoreSee Less
