From the National Zoo:

“We are very sad to share that red panda Shama has died at SCBI Front Royal.

Shama lived at the National Zoo on Asia Trail for years, and recently moved out to SCBI Front Royal with her mate Rusty to breed. She gave birth to three cubs earlier this summer, and she was under close observation because it is rare for a red panda to successfully raise three cubs. On Wednesday, August 13, keepers noticed that Shama had developed a neurologic disorder that progressed quickly. Shama was euthanized Saturday, August 16 due to her worsening clinical condition and poor neurological function, which was likely attributed to accumulation of fluid in the brain

Shama’s three cubs are now being hand-reared by experienced staff. Keepers are also hand-rearing a cub born to female Regan. Shama’s three cubs are active and appear to be doing well, but one is considerably smaller than its siblings, and receiving treatment for pneumonia. As a precaution, all three cubs are receiving anti-protozoal treatment. Rusty, who was housed with Shama and the cubs until recently, is also receiving anti-protozoal treatment as a preventative measure. He appears to be doing well.”

From a press release:

“Four years after founding Baked by Yael, lawyer-turned-baker Yael Krigman is taking her online bakery to the streets. Baked by Yael is opening Washington’s first cakepoppery across from the National Zoo at 3000 Connecticut Avenue. Washingtonians and visitors alike will be able to enjoy award-winning cakepops, bagels, and other preservative-free treats made from scratch at Baked by Yael’s first storefront when it opens later this year.

“I can’t think of a more perfect location,” said Krigman, adding that “not only will I be able to meet many of our customers who have been ordering through our website for years, but visitors to the zoo will be able to enjoy unique and delicious treats in an area that currently has limited options.”

The deal concludes Krigman’s two-year search for retail space. Last summer, Krigman ran a successful Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign, raising nearly $75,000 from 669 backers who pre-ordered cakepops to support Krigman’s dream of opening a brick and mortar store.

Krigman’s online cakepop business has been thriving with orders for birthdays, baby showers, corporate events, and even divorce parties. With a storefront, Baked by Yael’s cakepops and other baked goods will be more accessible to those people who don’t want to wait a day or two to satisfy their sweet tooth.

“When the cakepoppery opens, our customers will be able to have the full Baked by Yael experience,” Krigman said. “They’ll smell the cakes in the oven. They’ll watch us dip and decorate the cakepops. They’ll see our cakepops in different shapes and colors and the space will be available for children’s birthday parties.”

The company will also expand its special event and corporate catering business and will continue to sell other products, including its renowned hand-rolled bagels, black & white cookies, and rugelach.”

From a press release:

“Wylie Wagg is bringing its popular organic pet products to a new Woodley Park location that will be its first Washington, D.C. store, according to George Galloway, managing principal of Next Realty Mid-Atlantic, LLC, the store’s exclusive broker. Wylie Wagg will occupy a 2,900-square-foot building at 2625 Connecticut Avenue, N.W.

“Wylie Wagg offers what its pet-loving customers want: the peace of mind that comes from knowing they’re buying safe, natural products for their four-legged family members,” said Galloway, who says the store is akin to a Whole Foods for pets. As with Wylie Wagg’s four other locations in Arlington, Fairfax, Tysons Corner and Middleburg, the new store will offer a large selection of all-natural and organic canned, dry and raw pet food, as well as supplies such as beds, collars, leashes, harnesses, toys, treats, clean-up aids, bowls and gifts.

“Woodley Park is such a pet-friendly area, and Wylie Wagg is an outstanding fit for the neighborhood,” said Andrew Rose, Next Realty’s senior director. “We’re actively scouting other sites in D.C. and Northern Virginia for this wonderful company,” he added.

Founded in 2002 by Laura and Larry Clark, Wylie Wagg is committed to running stores that help the people and pets in the communities that they serve. Among other things, Wylie Wagg believes in promoting the health and wellbeing of animals and only sells products that they believe will enhance the life of a pet. Each location is pet-friendly, welcoming those well behaved family members into their bright, attractively built out stores.”
