We just had a Tax increase, our taxes out weigh our mortgage, and what do we get for it, nothing. I have to take our garbage down a steep 250ft driveway when dry, wet or full of snow in order for get it picked up, but wait for another $300.00 they will come up my driveway. Keep telling my husband it is time to get the hell out of NY. View Comment
Thank you all for coming forward, all these stores need to be stopped from opening. Problem is landlords and politicians are all about the Taxes, they don't care as long as the property has renters.
Need to start sending letters, etc. to the town Supervisors, like Paul Feiner, since most are in his town, etc. When it comes down to it, the local governments only care about the finally dollars "TAXES", they only care that stores are no empty, they do not care about the welfare of an animal, and I can bet not one owns a dog or a cat and if they do, they are what we "Dog People" call "Pet People" just own and could care less. My dogs live better than some of the kids and adults in this county. Reason why there are so many stores out there, stupid people believe in the entire Designer Dog BS, it's a mutt people, you are paying more for a mutt from a Puppy Mill than I have ever paid for a Purebred with all the credentials and paperwork available to me. Want a dog go to the local shelter there are many looking for their forever home, and they will love you more than the mutt you just paid $900.00 - 2,000.00 for..... View Comment
Sorry will not be around this weekend, but great for you for starting this Peaceful Protest up. I just recently heard they are thinking of adding "Puppy Mill Store" on Central Avenue, south of Curry Chev. and right next to my groomer Best Friends View Comment
Who cares where it is located, "It's a PUPPY MILL", that's what we are talking about. True "Dog People" do not buy from them, and if Greenburgh or White Plains, and we all know they are, especially in Greenburgh, it's about the bottom figures, then they should all be a shame of themselves for supporting such a business.
Have you ever seen the condition these puppies come out of, have you ever seen or heard about all the medical issues, go ask any vet, no wait one better, I can give you all the names of Vets in this area that I know, and add all the shelter workers who see these puppies being brought in weekly to the local shelters.
Besides protesters visiting the following location this coming weekend, they should also go to Tarrytown Road and to the one on the corner of Hartsdale Avenue and Central Avenue.
It's about time these are put out of business. Maybe the reporter could do another article on the good some do when they go and adopt, from one of the local shelters in out area.
Please help us this Saturday, June 29, from 11am to 4pm, to protest the opening of the Scarsdale Puppy Shop at 1461 Weaver Street, Scarsdale NY. This store gets their puppies from puppy mills, where dogs are raised and bred in the most inhumane, cruel circumstances.
We are looking for your support to peacefully picket outside the store and hand out educational fliers starting this Saturday.
We are their voices - please join in our fight to stop puppy mills!
Are you kidding this is another Puppy Mill Store, like the above, why would you "PROMOTE" a puppy mill? The original breeder of Labradoodles has finally come out and said it was a bad idea, and that the Designers Breeds have gone to "HELL", it's just about money, not the health of dogs or their shot term future. I know for a fact so many of these "Puppy Store Puppies" are showing up in shelters. If a person wants a "PET" go to the local shelter, if you are like me show in Obedience, Agility, etc., and going for all the nice titles after your dogs name thru venues such as AKC or USDAA, NADAC, etc. then you go straight to a breeder with all the credentials and respect for their breeding practices and you purchase a long life time commitment of training, playing and working hard with your dog(s). Besides my 3 gorgeous and smart Border Collies I have purchased, I also adopted 4 wonderful, full of Love, very loyal dogs, 1 mix (16yo), 3 Australian Shepherds. Two of my adopted Aussies came with a price because we did not know the parents background, 1 with Epilepsy whom I catered years to, to keep him alive, his brother whom I just lost in 2012 (9yo) to Hemangeosarcoma cancer within in 3 short weeks. Because of him I started a Canine Cancer chapter in Westchester, NY. Last final comment, go back and do all your research on these stores, they are all liars, they will sell you anything you and your child wants to hear, and then when all that goes down the tube, send that pet off to a shelter, so that real "Dog People" pick up the pieces.

I'm in Edgemont, all my property runs along Sunningdale Golf Club, Nature Preserve, Hillard day camp. The coyotes have been here for years, we have seen pups and adults, and my border collie and australian shepherd have had many barking matches with them. Loud noise, screaming etc. they are immune too, point something long and thin towards them and they run if it looks like a BB gun or riffle, apparently they have been shot at many times. One morning at 5am, I was getting ready to leave for a dog show, went to put my dog out and it came running down towards the deck, pointed the broom at him/her and it ran off as I was pressing the dog clicker which was making noise like a trigger View Comment
They have never left, we can hear them all night long in the woods long my property. Tuesday, my border collie got up and was having a barking match with them around 4am, two where hanging around on my front lawn. This new young breed of coyotes has no fear, noise, herding dogs, etc. will not chase them off, they will defend back View Comment
I always travel those roads, have not had an issue. The issue we do have is up at Fort Hill and Ardsley Road, can't begin to tell you how many I have seen rush through the stop signs. Surprised there has not been a serious accident there yet. Some are always in a hurry and have no regard if you have been sitting there waiting your turn to make a right or left turn. And have seen some where if one car goes another is right on their ass moving too. Not only that if you have a large SUV, truck or van have seen them having a hard time turning because everyone seem to go right beyond the curbs, making to hard to turn.
The landlord should be responsible, like most are, it is so run down, to the point I will not shop there anymore, like many places on Central Ave. I usually go up county or Connecticut.
I just came back from Florida and I can't believe the gorgeous, well kept shopping centers there truly is out there.
As a matter of fact with all my travels via SUV, now an RV, I cannot believe the difference when one travels south of Delaware and out west as far as Tulsa, OK, how different everything is, roads are better, malls are better and people are even more friendly. View Comment
One of the things I did notice on the MAP of Gun Permit/Owners that some homes are right next door to Day Camps, Schools. So what is going to happen to the Day Camp businesses, are they now going to find people will not be signing up their child this summer because they saw this map and now they are afraid of Legal Guns users and/or Retired Officer who has the right to a gun permit and legal gun, whom all may very well have the cleanest records. Show the Mentally Ill or Child Molester in this area who has a shady past. This could very well hurt businesses, If I'm going to sell my house, someone now has a list, they could easily tell the brokers, do not show me houses in this area, so me as a home owner looking to sell, could be sitting on my house for years with no bites because of my next door neighbor. Who cares about their next door neighbor I don't, I want to come and go as I please without anyone bothering me, you don't bother me I won't bother you......... View Comment
Here's part of an article someone told me read on LoHud.com....
The governor should also address the state’s unique role in the firearms industry; as The Associated Press reported last week, state taxpayers have invested nearly $6 million over the last three years subsidizing Ilion-based Remington Arms Co., manufacturer of semi-automatic rifles like those used in the Connecticut school shooting and the fatal shooting of two firefighters outside Rochester on Christmas Eve — weapons many now wish to make off-limits to the public. “Some elected leaders want tighter restrictions on those guns but none say it’s time to stop supporting Remington Arms Co. and its nearly 1,000 jobs in the Central New York community of Ilion,” the AP reported.
Go after them, leave the legal Gun Permit/Owner alone. View Comment
They are planning on listing all of you too, as of last night. I know my brother has rifles he was not listed, but we where for the gun permits and wheres there are permits you know there are LEGAL GUNS. View Comment
