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 2 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.

Thanks to Bry for sending this jaw dropping look at the Wharf development:

“From Hain’s Point park – dang, what a change”

Ed. Note: I was just thinking how the new buildings on U Street don’t drop my jaw anymore, the development, while still huge has almost become routine but I actually drove past this one in SW on Sunday and I believe I uttered something like “holy sheeeeeet.”

A reader reports Sunday:

“We literally just installed our Ring video doorbell yesterday and our house was burgled early this morning. We live on 14th St between Taylor & Upshur. The man just walked in the front door (forcing the lock with a pocket knife) walked into our home and took a laptop. Our dog was right there but in her crate. She barked and woke me up, but I didn’t realize anything was missing till 2 hours later. Have contacted Police and filed a report but wasn’t sure if there was anything else proactive to do? I’ve attached some pictures in case anyone recognizes him.

FYI, just an update that we miraculously recovered the laptop this morning. It’s a crazy story but we located it 4 hours after the burglary. We located it via the ‘find my mac’ feature. We went to the vicinity (by Fort Steven) and called police. In the meantime my wife randomly asked some kids we saw near where the laptop was located and they recognized the man. He apparently showed up that morning bloodied and seemingly high. They called an ambulance and when the cops showed up he had a warrant and was this arrested. I guess everything he had was left at that families house so they brought my laptop & charger out to us.

Still trying to actually get the computer unlocked & functioning, but glad to have it physically in my hands.”
