Puppies in Logan Circle?

There was a guy claiming to be a Vet Tech from southern MD set up in Logan Circle with 20 ish puppies yesterday. His story was that he pulled them from the shelter to prevent the Shepard mixes from being euthanized and was charging an adoption fee of $50 a pup. Anyone have any more info or take him up on the offer of a puppy?

Possible child exploitation?

I just received two phone calls from unfamiliar numbers based in Woodbridge, Virginia. I missed the first one but answered the second one. It was a young girl speaking in accented English who said she was 10 and asked if I wanted to be her friend. I was really confused and asked who she was – she told me a name but I didn’t quite catch it – the first name might have been Inga? I told her I thought she had the wrong number, but she repeated that she wanted to be my friend. I asked her if she was OK or needed help or if someone was hurting her, and she said no, and then sounded like she put the phone down to talk to someone. I asked how she got my number and she said that her friend knew me and gave her my phone number, but when I asked who the friend was, she hung up.

Maybe it was just kids making prank calls? Should I do anything about this? When I describe it, it sounds fairly innocent, but on the phone it felt really, really weird. Although it didn’t sound like she was reading from a script – it felt more like she thought i was expecting her call. FWIW I also have a 703-area code phone. Anyway, probably nothing I can do, but.. I just feel really unsettled by the whole thing.

Help with problem tenant

We have rented a condo for a few years and were unaware that we needed to register the unit. We only found out about the registration process because our current tenant has stopped paying rent and we were looking for information on how to evict him. In a previous post on popville (November 2010), someone referred to the case Curry v. Dunbar House as an option for landlords that have not registered. Has anyone successfully and legally evicted a tenant from a non registered unit? Can anyone recommend a landlord – tenant lawyer that I could consult?

Woman Assaulted in Petworth

Does anyone have any details about the woman assaulted in Petworth last night, August 26th around 9pm? She was really badly bruised and bloody, and police were there to take statements, but there’s no news of it. Hope she’s alright.

Movers!

Hello all!

My boyfriend and I are moving in together and we are definitely going to need movers. Does anyone have some recommendations of good companies to go with? We’d love to sort of stay on the less expensive side. That being said, we do understand that often times cost and quality correlate.

STOLEN Linus Green Roadster Bike

I left my olive green, medium-sized Linus roadster bike on my front stoop of my home at 12th and G Street NE this past weekend on Saturday/Sunday. It was locked. It has a silver rack on the back and lights (battery powered) front/back, as well as a silver bell on the left handlebar. Handlebars and seat are brown leather too. The frame also has a bit of brown rust spots on it too, otherwise it’s in great shape.

The serial number (underneath the bottom bracket and pedals), is HESS666.

I’ve attached a photo of what a very similar bike looks like (including the same color), for reference.

Auto Detailing

Hi,
Anyone know of a good reputable mobile auto detailer? I live in Mt P and looking for someone to come to house to clean inside and outside of car. Hopefully under $200. Groupon and Living Social seem to have several deals but they all have poor service records or have other negative reviews. Thanks!

TGI Fridays

I know how much everyone loves chain restaurants but does anyone have any information on when the TGI Friday will open up. I can’t wait to see how that battle goes down with Ruby Tuesdays. I remember the residents above the location didn’t want them their. Wondering if that was the hold up or just the usually time it takes with how lengthy the permit process takes in DC.

Attic Issues

I have just bought a VersaLift Attic Lift and have started the installation. I thought my attic was fine but I seemed to miss a family of birds making their home in my attic. They must have been out when I was up there looking around. Anyways, I need help with the most humane way possible to remove them from my attic. Also, how to find the hole!!! I have looked everywhere but there seems to be no exact area that they are coming in from. I want to have this project finished soon and start using my attic for the storage as it was meant.

I appreciate all the help!!

Reviews — Ethical Electric

Hi all — I found this old topic from the forum on the subject, but we were looking to switch to Ethical Electric and wanted to collect reviews and thoughts. We’re in an about 700 sq ft condo and was curious what the difference on the bill may be and so on.

Contractor Recommendations

I’m looking for a contractor to do work on the back of our house, potentially removing the stucco and replacing it with siding. Has anyone had experience with this and/or have recommendations?
