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 6-8 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.

Keagan spent 6 of his wonderful 9.5 years in DC, living in Shaw, Adams Morgan, Petworth, and Cathedral Heights. He survived Snowmageddon, Snopocalypse, SnOMG, and many other ridiculously named storms, including the infamous “el derecho” of 2012. He rode out the 5.8 magnitude earthquake, albeit he was a bit shaken afterwards (pun intended), and he attended the Cherry Blossom Festival almost every year where tourists would take more photos of him than of the blossoms. While osteosarcoma is to blame for his having to leave us, it never once broke his spirit. He was sweet and gentle right up until his last day, which was spent napping in his favorite spot in Rock Creek Park. There is not a day that goes by that Keagan is not remembered and missed. RIP sweet sweet Keagan Bear. 4/28/05-9/14/14″

    So sorry for the loss of Keagan. That’s the downside of Great Danes. What a lovely dog. Is Fannie Mae looking for a Freddie Mac? (Couldn’t help myself)

  • What a lovely tribute to Keagan. He was clearly loved, and surely loved you right back.

    Oh Keagan, you were such a handsome fellow who obviously brought much joy to your humans.

  • Fannie Mae snoozing under the covers is ridiculously cute!
    R.I.P. Keagan.
    Siggy looks contemplative.

  • All of them – adorable! I’m so sorry for the loss of Keagan, it seems as though he was a magnificent animal and a steadfast friend.

  • I remember Keagan well from his time in Adams Morgan. He was a grand gentleman, and is missed.

  • Siggy is one cute pup. Frenchies are awesome!

  • That One Guy

    Cancer sucks. Keegan looks like he had expressive eyes.

    Siggy is a cutie!
    Fannie Mae! Such a great portrait!
    RIP Keegan

  • Sorry for your loss of Keagan. Our family has owned Danes for 15 years. They are sensitive and wonderful dogs (the best breed, in my opinion!). Losing one is so very hard.
