North Seattle Veterinary Clinic plans open house April 7 at new location

March 13th, 2013 by master

After more than 70 years in a converted residential home on Lake City Way, North Seattle Veterinary Clinic has changed locations to 11032 Eighth Ave. N.E. and plans an open house from 1-4 p.m. April 7.

Located in the former 24 Hour Fitness, the new vet clinic is on the upper level of the Northgate Village shopping center between the U.S. Postal Service and Hot Yoga Inc.

At 4,100 square feet, the clinic is nearly twice the size and a more convenient space than their previous location, which “became a bit of a maze”  after years of additions, said Practice Manager Natalie Ervin.

“We designed the new space for ourselves to give us the best use of space,” she said. “In a converted house, you’re limited by what you can do.”

Although it’s located right across the street from Maple Leaf in Pinehurst, Ervin said the clinic already has a number of clients from Maple Leaf, and hopes to grow even more into its new space. [Read more →]

Lost and found dog update for Maple Leaf

November 19th, 2011 by Mike

Update, 1 p.m.: Bob is back home. Again. See comments.

————————————————————————————

Good news: Daisy, the missing Lab-Rottweiler, has been found. “Thanks to all who helped look for her!! – Tim.”

Not-so-good news from Friday afternoon. Lindsey emails:

I found an adult male chocolate Lab wandering Maple Leaf on Friday 11/18/11 on 85th between 4th and 5th. He was wearing a silver choke chain and a dog license from Milton, WA. No ID tag.

A chocolate Lab was found Nov. 13 at 8th Avenue Northeast and Northeast 85th Street. “Bob” was back home that same day.

Lindsey reports the new dog is well-behaved, well-balanced, and calm, and now at the Seattle Animal Shelter.

He is microchipped but the info isn’t in the Seattle system (they will contact the microchip manufacturing companies and cross check the number with them). The officer told me that they wait 3 days to be contacted by the owner, and then they will initiate a temperment screening and move forward with adoption.

This dog was a sweetheart, but because he was running in the streets he was at risk for being hit by a car. Let’s get this dog home!

More on Sunday’s Maple Leaf Parade of Costumes – plus a neighborhood pet costume contest

October 29th, 2011 by Mike

Here’s an update on the neighborhood Parade of Costumes, which runs from 2-4 p.m. tomorrow, Sunday Oct. 30.

Organizer Donna Hartmann-Miller emails: “We are planning on this, rain or shine, so dress appropriately and carry an umbrella.”

More information is in our earlier post, here.

Email donnah@nymbledesign.com with questions, comments, or to volunteer. She continues:

“Also, thanks to the businesses who will be participating this year (and for volunteering to join in, responding to this last-minute request): Peaks Frozen Custard, Roosevelt Alehouse, Maxine’s Floral & Gift, Cloud City Coffee, ADWAS, Fine Impressions Gallery, Cafe Javasiti, San Marco Grocery, Kona Kitchen, Blue Saucer, Reckless Video, and Maple Leaf Ace Hardware.

“Roosevelt Alehouse and Maple Leaf Pharmacy are allowing us to use their parking lot to start out the parade and The Perkins School is letting us use their parking lot to end the parade and serve snacks on – many thanks!

“Also thanks to Maple Leaf Life for putting out the word we needed a volunteer and for publicizing this.

“And a last thanks to Edgar from COA and Brooke W. for volunteering (if anyone else would like to help out, we can still use some route support – email me).”

In addition, All The Best Pet Care, 8050 Lake City Way N.E, emailed this morning to say they are repeating their Howl-O-Ween contest today and Sunday.

What could be cuter than pets dressed in Halloween costumes? In our opinion, very little! Bring in your dressed-up pet to be entered into our Halloween pet costume contest. There will be a 1st, 2nd & 3rd place prize. All judging will be done on the night of October 31st and winners will be notified shortly thereafter. Come in anytime during business hours on Saturday the 29th or Sunday the 30th for some early trick-or-treating!

Shown above is Alistair, who won last year’s “Best in Show.”

Cat Benjamin B. missing from Seattle Creative Kids Preschool

September 5th, 2011 by Mike

One of the familiar cats that hangs on 12th Avenue Northeast is missing since Sunday.

The much loved Benjamin Bunny cat decided to take a summer walkabout but failed to leave a note indicating where he was going and when he would be back.    If you see him please contact Sheila Cloney @ 206-910-3184 or email info@seattlecreativekids.com

The cats at Seattle Creative Kids Preschool, 9221 12th Ave., are well-known to neighborhood walkers. Shelia has been thinking of putting up a Cat Oasis as a counterpart to Maple Leaf’s Dog Oasis a few blocks away.

Dog Oasis gets donation of raccoon-thwarting jar

August 23rd, 2011 by Mike

The Maple Leaf Dog Oasis is happy to thank Elly for the donation of a new treat jar  to the popular canine attraction at the corner of 12th Avenue Northeast and Northeast 89th Street.

And not just any jar.

THIS jar has a sturdy handle molded right into the body of the jar. Try and get through that, masked bandits!

Last Friday morning dogs being walked along 12th were left bereft after the Dog Oasis suffered an overnight raccoon attack.

The previous jar could only be tethered to the oasis by a flimsy handle that didn’t stand up long to raccoon teeth and paws. It was MIA by first light (and later recovered in a neighbor’s back yard).

The Dog.Oasis has been getting by on a temporary jar since, but THIS jar is now in place, thanks to Elly.

While we’re on the subject, the Dog Oasis maintainers (that would be me and Caroline) would like to remind folks to screw the lid back on fully after treating their dog. Otherwise squirrels, which aren’t strong enough to steal the jar but ARE able to pry off an ill-secured lid, clean us out about once a month.

Incidentally, there have been quite a few raccoon comments on the original post. You can read them here.
