Around here


Chowder Vargas




In between traversing the city finding the spot where L. Frank Baum wrote The Wizard of Oz (just mere blocks from the apartment) and the house where Walt Disney grew up (now a not so great house), we also came across two loose pups. One we couldn’t get near, but the other (named Chowder Vargas!), we successfully reunited with his owner. And let me tell you, Chick was not happy to have me holding that little guy. We also pet taxied little Emory around, who was just adopted yesterday through One Tail at a Time. The rest of the weekend was spent feeling grateful for a sweet and silly Chick, safely inside.

  1. Oh…I don’t know these Oz and Disney spots. Where are they? And Emory looks so much like a younger version of Jack Frost!

  2. Oz’s “spot” is on the 1600 block of Humboldt Blvd. It’s sadly public housing now :(. And Disney is in the Hermosa neighborhood near Pulaski and Armitage. It’s also not in great shape. Such a shame! No plaques or anything. I thought the same thing about Emory. Such cuties!
