Thanks to a reader for sending Day of the Dog At Congressional Cemetery [1801 E Street, SE], August 30, 2014, 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.:

“Day of the Dog is an annual festival held at Congressional Cemetery in celebration of man’s best friend! On this day, the cemetery is open to all dogs, not just K-9 Corps members.

The 2013 event included activities for both pups and their people, including contests, raffles, games, demonstrations, and more. Pet vendors and services from the D.C. area were in attendance, as were local pet shelters with dogs and cats available for adoption! Live music was provided by Charlottesville band Red and the Romantics.

Admission is FREE, and tickets will be available for puchase for activities and the raffle.”

A few months ago I was admiring the old Soul Food sign on Rhode Island Ave in Woodridge. @GarberDC tweets a great photo of who’s moving in:

“Cool way to get people excited about a new local biz — @GoodFoodDC on #RIAmainstreet.”

If you have any animal/pet photos you’d like to share please send an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com with ‘Animal Fix’ in the title and say the name of your pet and your neighborhood. Your photos will go into the queue (usually 3-4 weeks wait) and will be posted in the order I receive them. If you’ve already entered your pet and would like to do so again – that’s no problem – just space the entries out a bit. Please try to send horizontal photos 640×480 (medium size on your iphone) if possible. If you’re not using an iphone any size is fine.
