Franny's Pets

Franny's Pets

Pet sitting, walking and hugging in Philly's neighborhoods.
We started Franny's Pets because we know how hard it is for today's busy professionals to find a proper work/life balance PLUS find a reliable sitter for pets while you're away. With an experienced and mature staff, we'll take care of your loved ones, plus more - dog walking & running, cat sitting & playing, vet transport, food pick up & delivery - whatever your needs may be. With our round-the-clock care, you can be sure your home and pets are being taken care of by the best.

Francesca (Franny) Costanzo has lived in the Art Museum + Brewerytown areas for 30 years. Her pet zen has helped raise, foster and love many neighborhood cats, so running a pet sitting business is a natural fit. Her inner calmness works well with dogs, birds and fish too!

Dr. Wilson stopped by the Green Line Café at 44th and Locust Street, one of three remarkable coffee shops founded and owned by folks who are patients of ours. See http://greenlinecafe.com/ if you plan to be in the area! He checked out the work of our patient and Philadelphia artist Alicia Neal. Ms. Neal received her BFA in Illustration from the University of the Arts in December 2005. She works in various media including wood instead of canvas. Her works are thought-provoking and visceral and it is a delight to see her brush strokes on a natural background in which the grain and character of the wood add to the excitement of the piece. For more information on her work, have a look at her website: http://www.alicianeal.net/

Taking on a secret role of Robin Hood at her ultra-exclusive high school, Willa bilks her "friends," the Glitterati, and delivers care packages to the scholarship girls.

When the cops start investigating the string of thefts and the Glitterai begin to seek revenge, could Aidan become the person that Willa trusts most?

Nick and Katie Gray (pictured) were involved in The Preservation Project, 12/11/2009- 4 short plays that, just like Katie's "USER 927", just provoke bushels of thought.

Tenor Paul Robinson recently appeared in a production of Johann Strauss' "Die Fledermaus", at the Shannondell Performing Arts Theater, December 14 2008. Paul played the role of Eisenstein, and enjoyed working with a very talented cast under the direction of Josephine Guido Sadacca.

"Dr. Wilson, Have enjoyed the conversations over these many years about your personal experiences with hybrid vehicles. I write to let you know that your example has inspired our organization to go "hybrid" as well. I am pleased to report that as of today we are better than half way there in converting all of our company vehicles to hybrids. And all that drive them appear to be smiling a little bit bigger as we do our part to support our green environment. Thanks again for the inspiration. Ed"

On September 27 Dr. Wilson and his daughter Jenna participated in the MS150, fundraiser for research in Multiple Sclerosis. They rode on their tandem bike. It was a remarkable experience for a father and teenage daughter to spend 5 hours in such close proximity and never have an argument!

Sara Reiter, Conservator of Costumes and Textiles at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, was kind enough to show off the new Conservation Lab in the Perelman Building! In the photo are, left to right, Dr. Wilson's wife Michelle, friend Anne McCrossan who came all the way from England in part to see the Gee's Bend quilts, and Sara. Comprised of some 30,000 objects, the Museum's collection of Costume and Textiles is one of the oldest and largest in the country. Rotating exhibitions highlight diverse aspects of this encyclopedic collection. Anyone who wears clothes should have a look!
