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.”

“Any of you who live in the Chevy Chase/Tenley area please, please be on the lookout for our dog. His name is Frank and he is approximately 8 years old. He is a terrier mix and is very affectionate. He also has incredible wanderlust. He is wearing a red Puppia harness and his tags still have my South Dakota address. He got loose from 45th and Western at approximately 6:00pm.

I know this is a long, long reach but you never know. He was a little stray that we found in a storm seven years ago and we miss him already. He does have tags and he is microchipped.”

Update: Found!

“We found a dog this afternoon walking around the 16th street heights area. He was found right across the street from carter baron. We will be dropping him off at the humane society on New York Avenue. He is not neutered and has a long furry tail. He looks like he just got a hair cut but you can tell it’s curly. He probably weighs about 25 pounds.”

“Rosie is an indoor cat (no collar/ no street sense) and managed to get out of our kitchen and into the back alley of our rowhome on 12th Place (and U Street, NW) late last night. She’s shy so i’m pretty certain that she is hiding and scared in someones backyard right now.

If anyone manages to find her can call me at 443-474-4369″

I live at ingraham st NW and Georgia ave. she was last seen running west on Jefferson from Georgia ave. Reese needs daily medicine and I will pay a cash reward, thanks Larry 623-363-0044.”

“Dear PoPville,

a neighbor and myself found a dog walking around the neighborhood at 13th and Euclid this morning. No one around seemed to know the dog and no owner was in site. We hung around for a few minutes but since he was walking in the street during rush hour with no regard to his own safety, we thought best to try and find an owner. Dog had no tags, just a black collar. Was brought to City Paws on 14th St and no microchip was found. He’ll be boarded there, they close at 7pm tonight. Wish, I knew the breed, but hopefully pictures are enough.”
