Our early spring could mean more ticks, fleas and mosquitoes. Is your dog ready? Patch talks to La Grange Park's newest veterinarian, Dr. Susan Dowd, at Arbor Animal Hospital.
While it was nice to have such a mild winter and such a warm spring, it could have some consequences come summer. The warmer weather could mean more ticks, fleas and mosquitoes looking to dine on your dog. Luckily, La Grange Park has a new vet who knows her stuff. Dr. Susan Dowd, owner of Arbor Animal Hospital, 14 E. 31st St., in La Grange Park, said it’s easier to deal with problems (and cheaper too) with a little foresight. Since opening up her new clinic in La Grange Park, Dowd said the response from the community has been amazing.

"We're seeing a kind of '50s and '70s mixed thing right now." Whether you want to go short or long, Bartolomei said, the look is natural with a bit of a wild side. This is a change…

With all the wacky styles, lengths and options out there for summer pants, our local style expert shares some very definitive fashion advice.
It's that time of year, alright. I received this emailed question from a college friend who always, "tells it like it is." Q. What is it with all these cargo-style shorts and pants, cropped capris and otherwise leg-shortening summer pants, and this “boyfriend” everything? As a woman of a certain age, I do not want all kinds of stuff hanging off and around my hips, nor do I want to look short and stumpy. And, I most certainly do not need a boyfriend. What exactly am I supposed to wear this summer? A. I hear you loud and clear, dear friend. Shopping for summer pants can be more than a little daunting.
