Have you lost a chihuaha?

A chihuaha or chihuaha mix has been spotted on our block several times over the past week. He (or she- can't get close enough to tell) is running around the street and going into back yards at all times of the day. The dog is brown and white and very skittish (won't let us near him). We don't know if he is lost or just keeps getting out of his yard. He is not wearing a collar. The neighborhood is the Via Caballero circle off Rodeo Road.

Coyote Crossing!

As I make my way forward, early in the day, I turn from Airport Road onto 599, heading North....

December I noticed the Coyote body.  It would greet me after the 2nd 55-mile per hour speed limit sign, but before mile-marker 5 and 4-times I called the dispatch over a 3-month period to try and get someone to pick it up. Finally, I called the Assemblyman's office for my district, and the young woman who mans the phones got it taken care of in one-day. They found two bodies, one more…

Latest Pepper sighting

Hi everyone!

Thank you for your diligence in keeping a look out for Pepper. As many of you know, he no longer has his leash but is still wearing his blue harness. We think he's been racing around the arroyo off West Alameda, onto Osage Street and running out to St. Mike's occasionally. He has been seen with canine buddies.

The latest sighting was from this morning (Feb. 6) off Agua Fria on Vuelta San Marcos. A woman has been feeding him and is trying to gain his trust. We are…
