Spotted In East Williamsburg: A Very Special Lost Dog Flier

I have seen a great many lost/stolen pet fliers during my peregrinations in our fair city. This undoubtedly due in some part to the fact some have taken to making a cottage industry of stealing dogs for resale, the collection of reward money or worse. Each and every one of these fliers is heart-wrenching in its own way. This one (spied today on Thames Street) is no exception. However, it sports a significant difference from its peers. Specifically: what it offers in the way of an incentive for Rocky’s safe return.

  • $500.oo

  • $1,000 worth of “ink”.

Although I have taken the liberty of blurring out the phone numbers of this “people” (for fear posting them would subject them to further heartbreak via telephonic ridicule) those of you who live on or near Kickerbocker Avenue and Flushing Avenue please keep an eye out for this little guy. His family clearly misses him.

Thanks.

Spotted On Diamond Street: Hate

The above image comes from a residnent of Diamond Street. He/she writes on September 15, 2012:

From outside my apartment building.

I have brought this rather ugly item to the attention to the head of the 94th Precinct, D.I. Hurson, among others. While outside of his jurisdiction, hopefully he can help get this loathsome piece of vandalism— to Federal property no less— removed. I have demonstrated— time and time again— I have neither time nor tolerance for this crap. Seriously.

P.S.: This post is dedicated the incredibly motivated Chief of Staff of our City Councilman’s office: Ashley Thompson. This dedicated civil servant saw fit to send me a nastygram calling me (among other things) “hateful” and a “cyberbully” Friday night at 7:47 p.m. Getting a dressing-down about ethics— much less “bullying”—  from someone who is albeit two degrees removed from “Gropez” and the machine his protege (her boss) is eagerly facilitating— well, that speaks for itself.

Lost In Williamsburg: Louie

Each and every lost stolen pet flyer is heartbreaking. The above one, however, is even more so than most. Firstly, I stumbled upon this missive well outside the confines of the 94th Precinct (Graham Avenue at Boerum Street ). Clearly Louie’s family has cast as broad a net as possible in the hope of his safe return. As for the “copy”— that pretty much speaks for itself.

No indication has been as from where Louis went missing. However another flyer located nearby (in a state of deterioration) noted he has just been groomed. Perhaps this is a clue? In any case he is sorely missed. If anyone reading this has seen Louis or knows of his whereabouts, please contact his “people” at the above-listed phone number. Otherwise, and as this flyer indicates, anyone in possession of this adorable fella can (READ: should) return him to the 94th Precinct. No questions will be asked.

Thanks!
