A thank you to the supervisors and trades workers at the Chicago Park District for for re-installing the water connection at the center of Grant Bark Park (next to the 'lock-box'), and for cleaning out the rampant weeds in the cell tower installation adjacent to the park!

Water at Fred Anderson Park: as many of you have noticed, although the drinking fountains are off (and will remain so, for health and safety) the spigots inside them are accessible and on. Today we attached hoses to those spigots in both the small and large dog areas. So fill up those pools and spray your water-crazy dog buddies!
We also filled up the bag dispensers today. Please let us know (text, call, write) when they are empty!
The CPD says that they will not turn on the water features. We are still working on that. ... See MoreSee Less
Every time we walk by people are not social distancing in the park it’s more of a social hour for humans water is not going to help that there will juts be too many people in a small area...and why would the CPD be responsible for turning on the water?

In case you haven't seen this article, here are some dog friendly big retail stores that welcome dogs! I think I'll head over to our South Loop Home Depot right now with my pup! It is a great thing to do also with young dogs to get them used to the world, things like carts, maybe a few loud noises, and different types of people. If you bring a young dog though, be sure to bring an emergency clean up kit! ... See MoreSee Less
This little girl was found running on State Street and 18th today! She's at DoGone Fun! She was wearing her harness and dragging her leash. She is microchipped but not registered. Let's find her family!
I’m looking to get some help in identifying or reaching a dog owner whose dog attacked my dog in the Grant Park dog “bark” park on 12/20/19 around 2:30 pm. Unfortunately, I didn’t think at the time to get the owner’s picture or dog’s picture- it all happened so fast.
The dog was tall and large, mixed breed, I believe light brown and white colors. The owner was a middle aged Caucasian male with light brown or dark blond hair, stated his name was “Sean”. He immediately left after the attack, and I believe he gave me a fake phone number when I ran after him to confront him after making sure my dog was stable.
Pictures attached of my puppy’s injuries. Laceration and puncture to the face and inside of her right upper jaw, puncture to her left facial bone so now she gets air under the skin of her snout when she exhales through her nose. Not to mention various other scrapes and cuts to her paw pads, legs, etc.
If anyone knows this person or was there that day and can provide more info, please contact me at (314) 960-4762. Thank you ... See MoreSee Less
