Your Afternoon Animal Fix

If you have any fun or interesting animal/pet photos or news please shoot me an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com with ‘Animal Fix’ in the title and say what neighborhood you’re from or upload to the PoPville flickr pool. I can’t guarantee I’ll get them all posted but I’ll do my best.  I’m aware not everyone loves pets.  But they bring me (and others) a lot of pleasure.  It’s cool, hold tight, a new post is coming in a half hour, you can make it!

After the jump, info on a found dog near 14th and Spring St, NW

“Dear PoP,

Around nine-thirty on Monday night we were driving south on 14th near Spring and saw a smallish brown dog zigzagging back and forth on the sidewalk and occasionally swerving into the street. She wasn’t wearing a collar. She looked clearly disoriented and possibly injured (hard to say but it looked like she might have had a face injury) and as we pulled over to call Animal Control we saw her run into the path of an oncoming car and get hit head on. Amazingly, she was able to get up and run up the hill to the Exxon station, where she hid out in the bushes. Animal Control showed up about twenty minutes later- I’ve never dealt with them before and we were both impressed by how gentle and knowledgeable the officer was. She said the dog would be evaluated by a vet tech and then possibly sent to Friendship Animal Hospital.

As of Tuesday morning Animal Control had posted this description on Craigslist:

  • Lola looks like my Angel who is a brown pit/lab mix with white paws!!

  • Sad about the dog that got hit – she is young so hopefully will recover. Also sad that all of the animals – 2 cats and 4 dogs – posted on the Animal Control craigslist post were not neutered.
