Dog park upgrades?

Finally – action taken at Stevens Dog Run in Hoboken

Amidst the Hoboken411 article, along with several residents applying pressure – common sense was finally re-instituted over at the Stevens Dog Park. The fountain was “made proper,” as the hose that was long requested gotten taken care of.

And it appears that Director Pellegrini, who’s crippled working within the stringent bureaucracy at city hall – found the solution. Use a decent, responsive contractor instead the inept “approved” city contractors that are in bed with the administration. Sometimes you just have to take matters into your own hands to get things done around these parts.

If dogs could send thank you notes – Leo’s inbox would be filled with them!

“Curb your dog” phrase is out-dated

Can you control your dog’s biological functions?

Here’s a brief update to the Hoboken “curb your dog” file.

This precious garden style apartment along Madison Street is surrounded by a metal gate. And inside that gate is a few feet of grass. Would have looked great as is – but no. Whomever is in charge of the property must hate dogs. Because they’ve made the entire site look very ugly by putting numerous identical signs around it that read:

“Please Don’t Water Our Lawn (dog ban symbol) Kindly Curb Your Dog.”

I can understand attempting to respect their grass by walking as far away from it as possible – but then you run the risk of your dog (or dogs) peeing on one of the parked cars! I mean it’s not like our dogs can tell us exactly when or where they’re going to piss – or even why for that matter (marking territory, bladder pain, etc.) They just go when they want to go – and it’s just cruel to try and make them stop.

Perhaps if these folks are hell-bent on ensuring no stray urine makes it inside their precious blades of grass, they should have put a massive brick wall up around the perimeter. Problem solved.

Found Chihuahua in Hoboken

Charlie the Chihuahua happy one year later in new Hoboken home

Back in August 2013, we posted this “found Chihuahua” article – and are now at the anniversary to share what has been a very happy year for Hoboken resident Stefanie.

“Samantha had found him on a Friday, and I met her on Sunday in the park – and after taking one look at him – I fell in love! That Monday she was vaccinated and micro-chipped, then fixed the week after.

At first I was so sad someone would leave him, then I realized he was the greatest gift ever. He was only eight months old at the time, and have kept in touch with Sam throughout the year, sending fun photos of Charlie in cute outfits, on vacation with us, etc.

Her kindness for rescuing the dog was the best thing that ever happened to us! Thanks again, Sam!”

Isn’t it great that dogs bring so much joy into our lives?

Found Dog Hoboken NJVery strange “found dog” incident – a purebred too! You’d think there would be an “APB” out for a dog like this – but nothing as of yet!

A young Weimeraner was found on Washington around First Street in Hoboken on July 21st. No collar or microchip, and so far no leads on an owner.

But the dog looks very well cared for (just under a year old).

Contact Cornerstone Pets at 201-653-4644 or info@cornerstonepets.com if you have any information.

Dog hate!

Dog hate morphing into graffiti vandalism in Hoboken!

Wow this stretch of First Street downtown is really “going all in” when it comes to how clear they’re making their dog hate known.

They’ve lowered themselves to defacing the sidewalks with messages for dog owners. While I do see their logic (because no one looks up anymore since they’re on their phones), it’s still pretty much vandalism.

Maybe when they pass and come back in another life – perhaps they’ll be reincarnated as a pooch!
