dog

“Dear PoPville,

Yesterday (Monday, February 16th), around 12 noon, our dog (pictured) was attacked by another dog inside the S Street dog park. The dog that attacked her was a tricolored Australian shepherd. (Our dog also happens to be a miniature tricolored Australian Shepherd…I figured I’d state this just to prevent any confusion.)

The dog latched on to our dog’s backside the moment after we entered. We weren’t sure whether or not the attack resulted in a full “bite” but, sure enough, found out that indeed a bite did occur during attack after visiting the vet.

Please let us know if you have any information to help us locate the owner.

We want to contact the owner to ask about the health of his dog and let him know that indeed our dog was bitten. He did hang around to make sure we were okay after the attack but we were in shock and forgot to ask for his information.

Please email me at finddogownerdc@gmail.com”

“Lily, a terrier mix, pulled out of her collar and ran away from her dog walker this afternoon (around 4:00 pm). She was last seen at 37th and Upton Streets, NW and was heading towards Reno Road. She’s a shy girl, so will probably try to run if you approach her. If you see her, please call Kitty Block at 202-236-1653.”

Romo is Back on Calvert Street, NW Washington-20150120-00139

Thanks to a reader for sending the photo yesterday: “Romo is Back!”. He was supposed to have moved to Arlington this past Fall. For whatever the reason, it’s great to have these extra glimpses. Hopefully he’ll be lounging Romo style come springtime.

My favorite portrait of him:

Update:

“@PoPville Finnegan has been found! We were circling solid leads in Petworth and got a text that he was spotted back in Brookland. #findfinn”

“His name is Finnegan, and he just ran away at ~5:30PM Eastern time. He was last seen at 9th and Monroe St NE, in Washington, DC. He was running the Metro Branch Trail.

He’s a mix of rat terrier and cattle dog. Photos of him are attached. Any sightings or information will be extremely helpful.

About Finnegan:

* He’s likelier to come if you crouch down and beckon or whistle. Don’t run at him, and try to crouch and stay low if you get near him.
* He responds to “Finnegan”, “Finn”, and whistles.
* He is microchipped.
* He likes peanut butter, jerky, and other normal dog things.”

“I found a lost cat a few minutes ago at the corner of 18th and Kilbourne in Mt. Pleasant. The cat is very friendly (it even let me pick it up and carry it inside my apartment building). Has a silver name tag that says Petey. No other information.

Owner can contact me at this email address (visualantics@gmail.com) or call my cell at 202.455.0294.”

“I arrived home to my house on the 1600 block of 4th Street NW last night and found this sweet, big boy stuck in my front yard. He seemed to have wandered up my walkway and somehow closed the gate behind him. According to my neighbor, it happened at around 9 pm (she heard him barking). We called animal control because none of us could keep him with our existing pets. He looked intimidating but was quite a softy. He isn’t neutered and although he looked like he had cataracts, the animal control officer guessed that he is young.

We are trying to track down his home if he has one; we did confirm today that he isn’t microchipped.. If anyone in Truxton Circle/Bloomingdale/Shaw recognizes him, he’s at the New York Ave shelter.

We are also sending to Lost and Found dogs FB.”

Nimbus 5

“Dear PoPville,

Thanks so much to the folks who found the gray cat last week at Howard University.

Last week, during the Great Dupont Circle Power Outage of 2015, I was checking your blog for when Pepco was going to restore power. And while perusing that and other stories, I ran across your article about a smoky gray cat that was found lying on a grate near Howard University. When I clicked on the article, the cat reminded me of my cat growing up- Nimbus, except my cat was a boy. When I inquired with the Washington Humane Society they said they had given the 2-½ -year old female the name Nimbus! I had been considering a cat for some time, so surely this was a ‘sign’ that the time was right and this could be the cat- I had to go visit her. She became ready for adoption on Friday and I visited with her on Saturday afternoon. She purred immediately and after about 20 minutes of petting and purring, she was in my car carrier headed home! And she will retain the name Nimbus. She’s been doing really great. She has really good litter box manners, purrs and meows a lot, and quickly made herself very comfortable on my bed. Clearly she is an indoor cat. Anyway, thanks again.”

“Our cat went missing on Sunday afternoon. I’ve contact the Humane Society and Shaw Listserv but we are trying to get as many eyes on the lookout in the neighborhood as possible.

Misty is a three year old long haired white cat with large gray spots. Misty is part of the Humane Society’s CatNIPP Program, so his left ear has been clipped.

Misty never strays far from our home at 5th and O Street and NEVER misses a meal, so we are very worried.
