Your Afternoon Animal Fix

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.


“This is 9 month old Brody after a long day. He lives in Forest Hills.”


“Hi, this photo is actually from last year but it’s one of my very favorite photos I’ve taken in Washington DC over 8 years of doing my amateur photography. The location is Georgetown in the lovely area down by the water where people often visit the ducks and seagulls. I got this shot by throwing up pieces of bread into the air and snapping my iPhone camera rapidly as the seagulls swooped up to grab up the nibbles in mid-air. He got so close to me that you can see the red band around his eye and the blue band around his beak. Exquisitely beautiful creature.

I hope others will receive as much happiness from this photo as I do.”

  • Beasley looks like such a happy guy! What kind of dog is he?

  • Beasley is one cute terrier! Is he a Cairn or Australian?

  • I love Brody. I love Beasley. Beautiful shot down by the waterfront. So striking to actually see it up close.

  • Brody! I love photos of sleeping animals.

  • Aw, thank you for posting my picture of the seagull down by the Georgetown waterfront. And in between two adorable pooches! I love Beasley’s tiny mohawk and his cute little eyebrow furs.

    • Absolutely lovely job on the seagull photograph, Katie. I clicked on the “responses” link expecting to see all comments about your photo, but they were all about the B dogs (Beasley and Brody). You deserve a national award for your photo.

    • This is a great shot of a seagull. I love the translucency of its wings, too. I can imagine the tenacity that this shot took!

    • Thank you SO MUCH, Michael and ST. I appreciate your comments so much. I loved taking that picture — the seagulls are wonderful at catching the bread in mid-air and never did a single one ever bite/hurt my finger. Birds have amazing control of their beaks — they can grab food from your fingers without a single nip, but they can also tear your finger off if they want to. They know just how much pressure to use. It’s fun spending time with birds. The photo was a lucky bonus.

      I just remembered I have another Seagull photo from that day, if anyone’s interested:
