Due to the Covid-19 spread through the United States, Puptown must remain closed while social distancing guidelines remain in effect. The CDC advises social distancing of a minimum of 6ft and now are including dogs into this social distancing. Please be careful, wear a mask as much as you can around others, and do not come in contact with others if you are yourself infected. We must not take any chances with this virus and we must protect our pups! Together we will all get through this and hopefully life can resume as we once enjoyed!
Gorgeous weather this weekend everyone! Make sure to get your dogs out there and share the perfect temperatures! It appears we have survived the worst of it, in Chicago, complete with an April snow this past week! Also, please be cautious for a lot of joggers out there (for all the big dog owners). It can be easy for a dog to get startled if they do not see or hear a jogger until the moment when they have to decide whether or not the individual approaching is a threat to their master. It might be safest to pull your dog into the parkway and off the sidewalk completely if a jogger does not appear to be changing their course. Avoiding a bite is much better than any other outcome. Feel free to share any other advice on how to avoid the crowded sidewalks and prevent altercations with other dogs and pedestrians.

If you have walked or driven down Wilson recently, you might have noticed the large sign in the window at the former Starbucks location at the intersection of Wilson and Magnolia at the NW corner. This is definitely a plus for Uptown animal owners and a positive step for the commerce on Wilson. Neighbors that have battled with unsavory business operators for decades are more than likely, ecstatic! More information to come!
These breeds can be known to run and run, and sometimes run away. If you have Snowball with you please be a hero and return the dog! If you have taken Snowball, with no intentions of returning the dog, you will be caught eventually. ANYONE who has seen a neighbor or someone they never knew to own a similar looking dog-please call the posted numbers if not the police. Even though the law only sees dogs as property, these companions are much more than a piece of property, they are family! There are many shelters desperate to give away dogs to loving homes, there is never a need to steal a dog from anyone. Let's all hope that Snowball gets back to her family, soon!
Thank you so much to our pack members including student volunteers from Walter Payton College Prep for helping with today’s cleanup. You did a great job! Woof!
Come down to Puptown!! Introduce yourself to the community! Please write in the comments and tell us how you found Puptown and how your dog has changed your life for the better! Bow wow, for now!!
Thanks to Collette Fried, Darlene Wright, Walter Kinderman, and some dedicated National Honor Society students from Walter Payton High School the park received a very thorough cleaning. All tools came out of the shed and were used in a much needed sprucing up! At least a dozen 40 gal bags were filled with rubbish. We look forward to more consistency at the park with some new committed members. TShirts available as well if anyone is interested.
Puptown is a volunteer maintained, dog friendly area in Chicago's Margate Park.
