OC Register put some outstanding photos online
They got some great pictures of Rosie & Riley, and the red carpet was a hit! Enjoy the photos, and thanks again Justin. Looks like we grossed about $10,700 so far. About 45% less than last year. - Liz
Justin, Do you know any new info in regards to parking at the new dog park downtown?
The parking structure next door I know opens its gates at certain times but I dont know when. I dont want to go down there and end up having to pay allot for parking. Also their are no dog fountains, only a tub that no one fills and is disgusting. Are they going to build fountains? - Samantha
Mr. Rudd:How do you cure the rash that the dog gets from their drool,
underneath Bambies neck when she drinks water, she wets all her neck that now it looks like a rash, that she hair there is spotted with redness. -Aida Rodriguez

NEW Downtown Dog Park.
The Civic Center Parking Structure located off of Broadway is open every day of the week. The structure is staffed from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., M-F. This means you would have to pay upon exit during those times. The structure is staffed on Saturdays from 10:30a.m. - 6 p.m. On Sundays, the structure is not staffed at all, meaning it is free all day. You would still need to pull a ticket upon arrival, though the exit arm is up upon leaving.
With regards to the water fountains, they are in the process of being ordered by Development Services. With the budget issues going on, these were put on hold for a bit. As we get into FY10 (beginning Oct. 1), the monies should become available. The fountains take about 4-6 weeks for delivery after they are ordered. The other problem we are facing with this location is tapping into a water source that does not threaten the structure of the garage underneath. Along with this is creating a viable drain source, that again does not threaten the garage underneath. Until this issue is resolved I would ask you to help spread the word that owners need to bring a water bottle for their doggies. Our hope is to have this issue addressed as soon as possible. - Heather Blackmun, Administrative Assistant, Office of Councilmember Suja Lowenthal, Second District, City of Long Beach

Justin: Am crying as I write to you. Don't even know if you are the person who can help.
If not you, maybe you know of someone. I have 2 English Bulldogges, Chugger, 5 years & Peetie, 10 years, both males. Peetie is a brindel & has all the energy of a puppy. We have had him since he was 4 weeks old. He was abused by a neighbor when very young. As a result, he has about 5 documented biting charges, for which he had to be quarantined and we were ordered to have a Dangerous Dog sign in our window. Have been to court, etc. Since then, we have sent him to boot camp 5 times for 6 weeks at a time, have had personal trainers, etc., years ago, to no avail. He is extremely aggressive, snarling, growling & biting at everything. In the past year, if I want him to move off the couch, porch, etc., he will start snarling & jump up and bite at me. I can't take him out if there is anyone around or any other pets. We do not have the resources that we did before should there be another "incident". He is completely devoid of other human and animal contact besides myself, husband & his bulledogge brother. His brother, not the same litter, was born without hip sockets, has seizures, has had operations, etc., and we couldn't love him more also. He is just the opposite, very low key & just rolls with all his ailments. We recently had to move to a 1 bdrom, 777 sq ft apartment home on the third floor for financial reasons. My questions are these: Are there any groups or persons who adopt aggressive dogs like Peetie? Would I be able to visit him? He is so full of life and energy, I feel like I'm not being fair to him. Maybe he would be better off with someone who has a yard for him to play in, since he can't be around others, and could handle an extremely aggressive bulledogge. He is a very happy boy, except with others. I love him so much, but am afraid he will hurt someone else. I feel like a monster and horrible person just asking about this. It's taken me months just to decide to write this. Still don't really know if I could part with him if I could never see him again. -S.
Two French Mastiffs Who Desperately Need Foster Home in Southern California
Justin, please help. These two, a male 4 yrs. and female 3 1/2 yrs., were dumped at a high-kill shelter and will be PTS soon if a foster home isn't found sooner. Please put out the word and contact Kris, the national rescue director of Dogue De Bordeaux Society of America Rescue Inc., at www.ddbsarescue.org for details. You are a such great animal rescue supporter and you organize all kinds of animal rescue events that I thought you might have a few contacts or know some folks who could save the lives of these two beautiful French Mastiffs.
Bulldog with arthitis . I had a bulldog with extreme arthritis and acupuncture helped him a lot. I had the vet/acupuncturist come to our home every other week for a 30 minute session and Spencer was able to move so much better. I live in Virginia so I can't help with a doctor.
Giving back - volunteering with animals
Do you love animals, but can't adopt any more dogs and cats? I love my rescue pets - my cat Eddie, and my dog Angel - but in an apartment, it's just not fair to them to add more pets to the family. I'm fortunate to be able to bring my dog to work wit...
