  1. the link for “Ruben Vives moved to Whittier” doesnt work.

  2. Can you clarify the link on about the writer moving from the sketchy part of Echo Park? the link took me to your events calendar

  3. @ PT & Kiz: Link is fixed. Follow it to L.A. Times story with more details.

  4. It would be great to see dog houses in a variety of styles – Modern, Art Deco, Taco Deco, Victorian and so on. It would really provide a much needed array of choices for Los Angeles’ discerning dogs.
