Loose (lost?) dogs in Maple Leaf. Are they yours?

June 23rd, 2017 by Mike

Amy emails this morning:

Can you please post on the blog that these two dogs were spotted roaming Northeast 96th Street this morning at 8:10 a.m. between 15th Avenue Northeast & 12th Avenue Northeast, heading west?

No collar on small dog; red collar on larger dog but no tag.

Friendly & approached for pets when called by female in a chipper voice. Little dog is a talker; big dog looks hungry/skinny & has some fur missing from back side.

Hope they have a home.

Separately, it’s now possible to vote online for your favorite project in your council district.

For example, traffic improvements at Hazel Wolf School (just north of Maple Leaf) is one project.

Most of Maple Leaf is in council District 5. Here’s a direct link to that voting site.

A day to remember.

(In the MSM, if you don’t remember it, phone would ring off the wall. If phones still ring.)

Also, Dec. 7th.
