cat

“Hello neighbors! Sadly, our cat Mogley, a wonderful and adventurous indoor/outdoor fellow, has been missing since the weekend. [Lamont St NW at 19th St NW] He is a gray American shorthair cat, with little white fur boots and a very long tail. If anyone has taken him in or seen him over the past few days, please let us know ASAP! This little man is the center of our lives and we are missing him very much.”

“Dear PoPville,

Perla, our beloved rescue kitten, has been missing since Tuesday. She’s all black, only 3 months old, and is just over 2 lbs. She has a purple collar with small reflectors and a little bell. She’s very friendly but can be shy, especially in new surroundings.

She lives in the 2000 block of Park Rd, NW. She’s also microchipped, if whomever has found her prefers to take her to a local animal shelter or vet’s office.

If found, please email lori.holtz(at)gmail.com or call/text 843-670-1860.

Please help us find her!

Thanks so much.”

“Dear PoPville,

After our walk this morning [Sunday], my dog, Dax, and I stopped by Compass Coffee on 8th Street. I tied her up to one of the steel beams attached to the building to the left of the door. I had finished ordering coffee when one of the staff members pointed and asked if that was my dog. A man had untied her and was walking away with her towards T St. I ran out of the door and caught up with them. We struggled for the leash for a second and I pushed him to the ground. He got up and ran off. Dax is a bit of a nervous dog so I stopped to check her out and try to calm her down. He had removed her gentle leader and had wrapped it around her neck. Other than that and being scared, she was fine. I walked back into Compass and grabbed my coffee, talked with a few people about what happened, and then went home. It was a bit of a crazy morning, but, luckily, it all ended okay.”

Lost Dog 2

“I found a dog hanging out around 14th and Crittenden St NW yesterday (7/11) around noon. He’s a very sweet terrier/poodle mix that had a collar but no tags and looks recently groomed. I have registered him with the Humane Society and put out signs and posts on social media but no leads yet. I went to the vet with him this morning and he does have a chip, but it is not registered.

Please contact 240-377-1323.”

A reader reports:

“I found a lost dog this evening wandering around my neighborhood. I would ideally like the person to identify the dog’s neighborhood and distinguishing characteristics before returning it to its owner.”

If you recognize this pup please email me at [email protected] and I’ll put you in touch with OP. Thanks.

Brookland Pint
716 Monroe Street, NE

From Drew Swift, General Manager of Brookland Pint (on Sunday):

“Due to an unfortunate incident today, effective immediately, Brookland Pint has a new pet policy:

Pets are no longer allowed on the property under any circumstance. As always, and in compliance with ADA requirements*, service dogs and their handlers will continue to be welcome.

We understand and are sympathetic to the pet-owning portion of the Brookland community who relied on our patio as a welcome space for themselves and their pets.  We have always tried to be as lenient as possible with regards to DC Health Codes** to accommodate everyone and regret that due to the events of today, we can no longer risk exposing our guests and staff to the potential hazards of substandard or inexperienced pet ownership.

Our purpose of writing is to explain this shift in policy and notify as much of the community as we can to prevent turning people away as a result of this shift.

This evening a 6-year old boy was bitten on the leg by a dog on our patio. A family was finishing their meal inside when the boy’s uncle went over to Filter for a coffee. On the patio, two women were sitting near the planters with their dog. Our pet policy up to this point has allowed guests with pets to sit around the edges of the patio, with the understanding that the pet needed to be outside the perimeter of the patio, marked by large planters. Inevitably, especially when food hits the table, some dogs creep past the planters and end up under the tables. This evening, two women had ordered their food, along with a hamburger to go that was brought out with the rest of the meal. They had cut up the burger and were feeding it to the dog under the table. The 6-year-old boy walked across the patio to meet his uncle at Filter, when the dog quickly became territorial, darted away from the table, and bit the boy on the leg. (more…)
