While I applaud the Studio City Patch for having a column about Pets to rescue, I take great offenseRead More when you mention a for profit business like Lucky Puppy and use the word rescue. The dogs they adopt from the shelter at a lower price than a normal person are cute and fare easily adopted at the shelter by you or I. They are not the dogs needing to be rescued. The dogs needing rescue are those who are large dogs, pit bulls, mastiffs , older dogs, shepherds not cute, young kid friendly, designer breeds and fashion accessory dogs. I adopted my two dogs at the East Valley and South Los Angeles Shelter respectively and in both cases had to endure sweetheart deals with rescuers and the shelter. My dogs were rescued by me not by a rescuer working for a business that resells them. Rescuing a dog that isn't cute, petite or small is rescuing a dog. Cute dogs don't need rescuing they need homes given by normal people , dogs that don't suffer from that positive attribute need rescuing by rescuers. Lucky Puppy sell or finds adoption for cute dogs . I am sure they cost more than the under $125 fee you would pay at the animal shelters run by the City and Counties in Los Angeles ncluding shots , neutering and a license

Any adoption is a good thing but yes, I agree... there are too many older cats and dogs who need aRead More forever home and who sit at the pound waiting. They need equal time.

This is such an important issue. I have been almost hit several times by drivers using their mobileRead More devices. When my partner is on the bench he has many who have been ticketed by the police--you do not want to be in front of him or any judge!

It's great to be voted Patch.com's best medical marijuana dispensary in Studio City 2012, but whatRead More good is that if we don't do our part to make Studio City the best city in LA. We applaud Lisa Sarkin and the Studio City Neighborhood Council for its diligent efforts to curb an out of control marijuana dispensary problem in Los Angeles. Don't let our collective efforts be lost in vain. Contact City Attorney Mike Feuer's office by phone, facebook or twitter and tell him, time is wasting and Measure D must be enforced now.

Thank you Mike for reporting on this important issue. Please note that there are five medicalRead More marijuana businesses on the 2007 city list, three delivery services and seven medical marijuana businesses (MMB) not on the 2007 city list of which two opened in the last week or so. The total MMBs reported to be in Studio City is 15. Proposition D took effect on June 20, 2013. The MMBs not on the list or in a location not approved, have 180 days to close or move to an approved location. Our stakeholders who want to know more can go to the Los Angeles City Attorney's website and type into the search line "Proposition D."

Did they serve pizza at the meeting?

@G.Cruz I agree -- wish the ideas could be sent to parents around the world. Yesterday I wasRead More shopping in a market and heard a little boy crying. His mother kept imitating him which only made him cry louder and longer. So sad to witness.

Dear Den Mom, Schools are quick to teach revisionistic History but should be concentrating onRead More preparing our youth for the real world with social education and principals to live by like this. Thank you for sharing it.

@BobBlanchard I wish teachers and principals taught spelling, history(American and World),Read More geography, math, current events, psychology, social studies, the sciences, English, critical thinking, manners and cursive writing, but alas... As long as they have their cell phones, ipads and thumbs we'll have to wait and hold our collective breath. It's the Google generation (or is it the zzzz gen.?). Thanks for always being there for me and my posts. We all need someone we can lean on.
