Dog Walker


Hi!

My name is Madeline Graham. I live in the Shorewood area and I would love to walk your dog when you're at work or anytime. I'm not afraid of the weather and I am sure your dog will have fun with me no matter if its raining or snowing!
I love all animals, especially taking care of them. I consider them to be a part of the family, not just your pet. So I will treat them like my own. I donate monthly to the ASPCA, and I do rescue missions all the time around the area with lost dogs to taking feral cats to get spayed and neutered, and then to finding them homes. I also know Caesar Millian ( the dog whisperer) so I have learned a few tricks from him too!
So give me an email! I would love to walk your dog!

Another Daytime Coyote Sighting


"I just saw another coyote on 28th SW near 114th SW, about 1:10 PM today.
 
This one was more bold as it just moved to the far side of the road at the beginning of a driveway, as I drove by.
 
I don't recall seeing one in the middle of the day before."

TREE REMOVAL RECOMMENDATIONS?

Hello Neighbors:  My neighbors have agreed to cut, trim and remove some trees in the view line of several homes.  Can anyone recommend tree removal companies that can remove large tees and do stump removal as well.  Thanks , Candace

LOST iPAD!

Hi there! We're newer members of the community, the Denniston's at 12857 Shorecrest Dr SW. My husband left our iPad on the car this morning (Monday the 15th) and we think it most likely fell off the car so where in the neighborhood as he drove our daughter to school heading into west seattle.

If anyone finds it, which would be a miracle, we'd be more than appreciative!

More Neighbors comment on Fireworks

Once again, our local "patriotic" scoff-laws have terrorized pets and toddlers in our neighborhood with their illegal amateur fireworks on July 4th.

These illegal explosives aren't "harmless." Every year there are run-away pets, injured children, and local fires caused by these bad neighbors.

Expressing yourself at the peril of others is not patriotic -- it's obnoxious, inconsiderate, and dangerous to your friends and neighbors.

SOTS Fireworks Escalated beyond Tolerance

Neighbor speaks out on Shorewood Dr. Fireworks:

"Last night fireworks were being ignited in Shorewood well past 11 p.m.  We live on Shorewood Dr and as I stood out in the front yard I felt and heard debris hitting our home and yard.  One firework landed on the umbrella in our backyard - luckily it did not melt the fabric.  “Neighbors” on both sides of our home were lighting off fireworks that could only be described as show fireworks - these displays do not belong in our neighborhood.  This year’s activity was probably the most intense and loudest I’ve experienced living here since 1998.  Our front window (5x10) rattled well into the night with some of the explosions.  When I stood outside between about 9 p.m. and 11 p.m. it sounded like a war zone.  I know that much of the noise came from outside our neighborhood but there was plenty coming from within. Fireworks are as much a nuisance as tall trees blocking our views.  Fireworks are illegal in Burien - period.  We tried to talk to one of the newest neighbors and, while being polite, they simply said they were going to continue shooting off their fireworks because it was July 4.  This morning the remnants are present in your driveways, your streets, your yards and your roofs.  It is time for leadership from within on this issue - not only should the Board engage the Sheriff’s department to plan for 2015, the Board needs to take a stand on this quality of life."
