I’ve lived on my street in lower Shaw for seven years, not that it should matter. Our building has a small patch of grass with no fencing. We’re really the only non-wrought iron fenced lawn on the block. We’re also the crappiest building on the block, but again, that shouldn’t matter. I’m writing because recently I’ve started politely asking people not to curb their dog on our lawn. I’m a tenant, it is private property and the many children in the building play on this space. Dogs are not permitted in the building so it’s not an issue with the tenants who share the property. I’ve encountered everything from “I’ve lived in this neighborhood for X years!!” to anger and people flinging curses at me to the weirdest “Go back to Norther Virginia (bleep bleep)!” I’m working with the landlord to put up those no-pooping signs, but in the meantime I just wanted to see if anyone out there in PoPville can tell me why my neighbors feel so entitled to let their dog feces be, even if temporarily, plotzed upon private property? Would it be okay if I curbed a dog on your fenced lawn even if I cleaned it up? I’m frustrated and pretty sure the next time someone reacts with anything but “Oh, no problem” I’m going to scream like a crazy person.

“Found near 14th & Allison St NW. 2 year old male yorkie with red collar. Call Dr. Karen @ 202 494-8631 if you lost a dog.”
A neighbor found a very sweet, well-behaved, housebroken, neutered male pitbull in the middle of East Capitol St. at 14th St. early this morning. David James is walking around the neighborhood and parks to see if anyone recognizes the pup. He took him to the area vets this morning, but no one recognized him, and he is chipped, but it was never activated. The vet figured he was around a year old. David’s landlord is insisting that the dog be out of his apartment by the end of the day today. David’s contact info is 202-489-1107, and his email is DJLantz(at)me.com. I am emailing for him because he is continuing to wander the streets looking for the dog’s owners. Can you please post his picture to see if anyone recognizes, or is willing to take this guy in? He seems like a great dog.
I actually have an update from David as of a few minutes ago. He checked back in with the Humane Society, who said a man came in asking for a dog matching the pup’s description, The guy refused to leave his name or information, and the person at the shelter said they would have hesitated to turn the dog over, even if he had been there. So, David is now looking for someone who might be willing to adopt this good boy.
Someone in the middle of the block between 14th and 15th put out open rat poison dipped in peanut butter in their backyard. These yards are only 13ft wide and already the rats have carried it beyond the drop point. Two dogs in houses on either side have been poisoned in the last week – our small dog almost fatally. It’s an anticoagulant, and can be easily treatable if caught in time. Symptoms include dry, hacking cough lack of appetite and lethargy, and unstoppable bleeding from even minor cuts or abrasions. If your dog shows any of these symptoms get them to a vet immediately. We believe the poison was left out in the back yard, so houses with pets in the middle of the blocks on T Street and Swann St NW that share the common alley should be extremely careful.

Thanks to @JRogers202 for tweeting us the update:
“post on Chapman Stables in #TruxtonCircle – it is now in the DC Inventory of Historic Sites – no razing”
From the Historic Preservation Review Board:
After careful consideration, the Historic Preservation Office recommends that the Board revise the boundaries of the proposed landmark application to include only the garage and stable building at 37-57 N Street, NW on Square 617 Lot 215, and that the Board designate the building a Historic Landmark to be entered into the D.C. Inventory of Historic Sites. Staff recommends that the Board forward the nomination to the National Register with the identified revised boundaries. Staff further recommends that the property name be Chapman Coal Company Stable and Garage to more fully reflect the history of the property.

Adrian is a dog owner who lives in Shaw.
Attention dog owners and dog lovers – spring is here. On a few occasions, the weather has already warmed up enough to do some outdoor dining and imbibing. That was the case last weekend, so naturally I was excited to have my dog (@DogNamedBatman) accompany my friends and I for an afternoon at Standard only to learn that dogs have to stay outside the fence. Some may prefer the dog-free atmosphere, but there are a lot of dog owners in the city who probably don’t mind dogs hanging out at the bar with them.
I did some research, including collecting feedback from dog listserves and dog owners to start this list. I will note that I was not able to personally confirm all of these details, and some of the information may be outdated. So if you know of any spots that have not been listed here please add them to the comments.

Maddie is an 11-week old puppy who escaped from her foster home in Anacostia yesterday and we’re still searching for her. She is a City Dogs Rescue foster puppy.
Maddie snuck out under her foster family’s backyard fence at 15th and U St SE at 4pm yesterday. She is a sweet puppy, and wouldn’t hurt a fly, but she is most likely pretty scared so nobody should chase her. Her most prominent markings are the white star on her nose and white on her neck and belly. She has a black nylon collar on.
If anyone spots her or hears anything, please call (703)350-9630.
This is Booth. He is 2-years old and very timid.
Approximately 7pm Booth ran away from 40th Place and Calvert. He was last seen at 42nd and New Mexico.
PLEASE HELP ME FIND HIM!
He is about 14 inches tall and 17 pounds. He was wearing a bright neon green leash and green polka dot harness!
If you spot him, please approach slowly and email or call me.
UPDATE: “He was last seen on Foxhall at 7:30pm running toward Georgetown.”
Update: “A commuter last night said she spotted him on her way home, about 8PM. He crossed over New Mexico and was running down Cathedral to the East.
He is very timid and shy. If you see him, please kneel and tap your leg. Be very gentle — he is sensitive!”
“We now have a blog (http://findbooth.blogspot.com/) and FB page called Find Booth to keep people informed.
Last Sighting: Tuesday night at 9pm Booth was seen by a man on Massachusetts Ave NW. He ran away into Rock Creek Park on the trail near the Italian Embassy.
Please continue to contact me with any sightings.
And, will be canvassing today at 5:30pm, meeting at Stoddert School in Glover Park. Would love help!”
Thanks to ProfChris for sending this photo of the famous dog on the roof of Morgans Seafood:
“My Instagram of this dog who lives on the roof at Georgia Ave and Kenyon. He surveys the intersection daily. Very weird.”
Last night at about 7:30 in the 1100 block of Park Rd NW, this very well fed young lab ran up to me and my dog while we were on a walk. She’s super friendly. Unfortunately she only had a chain collar with a make-shift leash attached, no tags. I called DC animal control who said they’d scan her for a microchip but also seemed confident she’d be claimed. She was very thirsty when I brought her so may have traveled far. She’s super sweet and someone must be missing her terribly.
Update: “I just got off the phone with the NY Ave shelter and she was microchipped and they found her owner who is picking her up today. Her name is Pepper. ”
A friend mentioned I should tell you about a recent pit bull attack that happened to my rescue dog. Please post so other people may watch out for this guy and his dogs. They are clearly dangerous and I am concerned next time they will kill a dog, or worse, bit a child. This guy seemed sketchy and I got the vibe this might be a regular thing.
Since having my dog for 5 months, I worked very hard to socialize him. I made sure he was around other dogs, including pit bulls, I am not biased against them and know they can be good dogs. He was abused and rescued from a high kill shelter in SC and this attack has set us back to square one in terms of his fear and nervousness outside. I was walking him on a leash in Kalorama park (this isn’t a dog park) Fri evening at 9:30. We came across a young white boy in a hoodie sitting on a bench with his two aggressive pit bulls. One of the dogs was white and the other was grey. they were both wearing large, black leather, metal studded collars. Both pit bulls were very aggressive as we approached so I told the young guy my dog was a rescue and was nervous around bigger dogs and tried to walk around them. By that point it was too late, the grey dog was not on a leash and lunged to attack my dog. I pulled my dog into the air by his leash, and that is why I think the pit bull didn’t kill him.
The pit bull’s owner didn’t seem alarmed, didn’t say anything, got up from the bench, not in a hurry, and somehow got ahold of his dog, who let my dog go and my dog took off running. Thankfully he is still alive, and got off “lucky”. The vet bill was $600, I took of after my dog and haven’t seen the guy or his dogs. He never said anything to me, apologized or anything. A friend has mentioned she has seen this guy around Adams Morgan and the dogs usually have muzzles on. This night the grey dog was not on a leash. Attached is a picture of my dog,I hope this will help other people to save the trauma and the expense. If people see this guy around, they should call animal control at 311. A report has been filed and they are patrolling the neighborhood for this guy and the dogs.
The city has asked if anyone sees this guy or his dogs to call 202-576-6664 and press option 1, they are patrolling the area for the dogs. They want to get this dog off the street before he kills another dog or harms a person.
