  • Looking to stay in the neighborhood
    We just learned that we have to leave our beloved Prospect Heights 1BR + den apartment (landlord wants it for his personal use) and so we're on the lookout for something similar in the neighborhood.

    We just got a donation of a really spiffy item that anybody in Prospect Heights should love. Now, all we need is a contest to give it away. I was thinking something like a "send in your ProHo cuties" photo contest. Any other ideas?

    Is washing your dog a big pain?

    Would you consider supporting a 'dog wash' where you could wash & groom your own dog for a nominal price?
