animal rescue: etta

Just the facts: Etta is 8-1/2 years old but has the energy and sassiness of a puppy. Her days are filled with walks, hiding toys or rawhides around the house, playing with other dogs—and lots of naps.

Favorite toys: She cannot live without her elephant, zebra, or orange bone.

Before she was discovered: Etta was adopted from PAWS Chicago just a few months ago after being at another shelter in Illinois for several months. We don’t know why she was originally given up, but the original shelter transferred her to PAWS to increase her chances of being adopted.  

Talent Show: Her most adorable and well known features are her long ears, her enormous paws and her very soulful but loud howl—similar to Etta James’ singing.

Nicknames: Since adopting her, several nicknames—including Noisy Noodle and Rowdy Rigatoni—
have been found to fit her personality.

Unfortunately, the photo shoot including Etta didn’t make the final cut. To her mom, it was nothing personal—we loved working with her!

animal rescue: lulu

Just the facts: LuLu is a 4 year old brindle Boxer—brindle refers to the black stripes within the fawn-color of her coat. Her birthday is June 30, under the astrology sign of Cancer—she is loving, playful, energetic, highly intelligent, loyal, and protective.

Likes: She enjoys running along the sandy lakefront beaches of Chicago, as well as leisurely times laying by the fireplace at home. She began modelling last year and looks forward to more time in front of the camera as her busy schedule allows.

Before she became famous: Originally from a downstate Illinois rescue shelter, she now resides in the West Loop area of Chicago with her sister Candi, also a Boxer, and their two dads.

Favorite snack: Little bits of prosciutto.

Talent Show: Her best trick is chewing out the last chapter of whatever book I’m reading if she thinks she’s being ignored—always the last one, never the first.

behind the shoot: 5411 empanadas

Ironically, it was a ‘roadblock’ to growing a small business that forced 5411 to find a solution— one which created the first empanadas food truck in Chicago.

Specialty food trucks have redefined the old breakfast and lunch take-away versions found at industrial or construction sites—starting on the West Coast and in New York just a few years ago, food trucks have helped small catering businesses get off the ground by keeping overhead low and mobility high.

Created by three Argentine friends—Mariano, Andrés and Nicolás—each with a wildly different profession before leaving them to pursue a dream. But they kept two key aspects—the savory flavors and the telephone connection to their home—54 is the country code for Argentina and 11 is the area code for Buenos Aires.

Word-of-mouth is one of their favorite elements of being a small food business—ironically— and how we learned about 5411 in the first place. So share the news, it’s good business.
