Heads up Neighbors: BE SAFE!

Heads up!

The wave of muggings through Uptown New Orleans continued Wednesday evening when three more robberies were reported within an hour’s time, bringing the total number of holdups at gunpoint to more than a dozen in less than two weeks.

Just before 8 p.m., a woman walking on Prytania Street toward Napoleon was approached by a stranger with a dull-colored semi-automatic handgun who demanded her purse, then took it and left on foot down Marengo Street, said Lt. Mike Montalbano of the NOPD Second District investigative unit.

Less than half an hour later, a woman walking in the 1700 block of Napoleon passed a man who said, “Good evening,” then fell into step beside her, Montalbano said. The man then pressed a handgun to her face and demanded her bag, took it and left, police said.

About 15 minutes after that, a couple walking on Upperline reached the intersection with Danneel Street, where two men were waiting, Montalbano said. One of the men drew a gun from his waistband and demanded the couple’s belongings, grabbing the woman’s purse and tossing it into the street, where the second man went through it for the ATM card, Montalbano said.

Meanwhile, the gunman pushed the male victim into the bushes, and when the victim tried to rise, hit him in the face with the gun, Montalbano said.

The Prytania Street robbery was about six blocks from the Napoleon robbery, and the Upperline robbery another seven blocks after that. Based on the cases’ close proximity and the short time between them, NOPD Second District Commander Darryl Albert said they are most likely related.

“It’s going to be the same little crew,” Albert said.

In the first robbery, police got a detailed description of the suspect: a black man in his mid-to-late 20s, just over 6 feet tall and about 170 pounds, wearing all black clothing with a gold chain and a mustache. Albert said anyone in the Uptown area who might have seen him, or anyone who sees someone fitting his description, or anyone suspicious at all, should call 911 and inform police.

A total of 17 robberies have now been reported in Uptown New Orleans this month, including 13 at gunpoint in the last two weeks. Montalbano and Albert suggested Uptown residents find ways to avoid being alone outside after dark, such as letting someone at home know when you are driving up so they can make sure you get safely inside.

Are you familiar with the Louisiana Search & Rescue Dog Team?

The Louisiana Search & Rescue Dog Team are working along side the Louisiana National Guard, National Park Service employees and Jefferson parish Sheriff's deputies in the search for Dr. Francisco Piedrahita in the Barataria Preserve of Jean Lafitte National Park since Saturday.



The members of the volunteer Louisiana Search and Rescue Dog Team, LaSAR, have made a commitment to assist the community by training dogs and their handlers to excel in the rescue or recovery of lost children, hunters, drowning victims and others. It is this commitment to the community, which remains the guiding force behind LaSAR.

They are a great organization and we are really blessed to have such dedicated volunteers and handlers! (Wink, Wink! - we know who does the hard part!)

Why Monetize?

Did you notice the advertising post to the left? Our site gets lots of visits per day and I started to wonder if monetizing would be a way to help raise some more money to support some rescue efforts both locally and elsewhere... All of these natural disasters are getting expensive!

Please let me know if the advertising is not loading correctly or slowing down your visit and I take a look at and rethink this opportunity.

Thanks y'all!

Search Dog Foundation

These great dogs are helping with the rescue effort in Joplin and it sounds like they are sending a team now to Oklahoma.

My favorite tweet today!

In my opinion, it holds true for whom you hire as well...

Heads up City Park walkers...

I understand that the alligators are out of hibernation in the lagoons! I read that someone has seen some 5'ers! Watch your babies... don't let them off leash or swim. That makes me nervous!

A blog reader asked for new baby photos - my pleasure!

Isabelle
In her 2nd year of life - she started burping like a man dog.
It is funny but disgusting!

Henri
Mike calls him "groceries"
He is the only dog that I have ever known that does not sit at a door to go outside...
He sits at the pantry door or the refrigerator door.

National Hurricane Preparedness Week - 2011

This is a fantastic reminder to get current copies of all of your Vet records for your babies.

Also, it is a great week to get your supplies... The Humane Society of America has some helpful information/reminders/checklist(s) and links to Pet Friendly hotels.

If you are an IPhone/IPhone user - I love these applications:

Pet Dossier - Fantastic digital organizer for all of your pets's essential information. The application is $1.99 and they give back 25% of that directly to the ASAPCA.

Off Leash - Is a free application that is a dog park locator... Much needed in this household!
Lastly, we DO NOT make any exceptions to our Hurricane Policy and will gladly discuss it with you in detail at any time.

Happy Hurricane Preparedness Week!
