Dog Walker Busted for Burglary   

A Brooklyn dog walker was caught stealing from the homes of the dogs he walked. According to the New York Post, the walker stole nearly $190,000 worth of jewelry and trinkets from clients. The incidents were reported in five DUMBO condos. I wonder if this was the same dog walker busted for stealing in my building.

Cross Court and Pacific with Care

RIP Mambo, the poor puppy who was killed after being hit by a car while crossing Pacific Street at Court. The Brooklyn Eagle reports on this dangerous intersection that is subject to heavy traffic, poor sight lines and double-parked trucks. While the intersection does not meet federal guidelines for a traffic signal, Councilmember Steven Levin has created a petition to add one. Sign it today!
