Topic Tag: Dogs
Hi. Wrhave been living in Petworth for 10 years and we’re extremely excited about a lot of the positive changes we have seen and continue to see in our community. So much so, we are seriously considering opening a new business – Doggie Spa/ Daycare business for the dog owners in the Petworth area. Services provided at K-9 Condo would include doggie DIY (do-it-yourself) bathing stations, day and overnight quality care while pet owners are at work or away for travel, and dog walking services.
> While this seems like a great idea to my partner and I, we were wondering what the broader Petworth Community thinks and whether or not they would embrace and support such a business?

Posting this on behalf of a coworker who had to leave the country and could not take her dogs with her. The dogs are currently at the Montgomery County Animal Services and Adoption Center: http://www.montgomerycountymd.gov/animalservices/
A description of each dog from the owner:
Artie is a 110 lb Boerboel, rescued from a dump where he was abandoned in South Africa. He is 3.5 years old. He’s neutered. He is intelligent and needs to be challenged. He can fetch, stay, sit, shake. Likes to sit at my feet. He’ll follow me around the house. He’s loyal and protective.
Penny is a sweet, docile dog who provides excellent companionship. She will come lay by you if you are working on another room in your home. She reminds me of a deer, or antelope, because she kind of lopes, or bounces up and down when she is happy. She enjoys walks. She keeps to herself, doesn’t pick on the other dogs. She likes to be brushed and have her belly rubbed. She would enjoy sleeping on your bed. If you don’t like dogs on the bed, she’d be happy to stay by you on a blanket next to the bed.
My friend’s neighborhood is fostering the sweetest dog who was rescued from a high kill shelter in Georgia
The dog’s name is Lucy, and she is around 2/3 years old, female, and is a mix of Bulldog, Boxer, Lab, and Hound. She is great on leash, house trained, and is so nice! She is fine with other dogs while on leash, but she would need to be adopted into a home where she is the only pet.
Information about her back round, personality (again sweetest dog ever!), adoption fee, and breed can all be found on https://www.petfinder.com/petdetail/30925406. The organization that Lucy is being adopted out of is called, Homeward Trails. You can view their website at http://www.homewardtrails.org. The dog adoption forms can be found at: http://www.homewardtrails.org/adopt-a-pet/adoption-forms/
Please feel free to share. Also if you know of other locations to post Lucy’s information, please let me know!
We have a tenant who regularly leaves her dog alone for very long stretches- regularly 12-16 hours but a few 24+ hour times. I love animals and do not have a dog myself because I know I am not home enough to give a dog the care it needs. I feel awful knowing there is a dog next door who is alone that much. I am trying to to determine if I am being overly concerned/nosy or if this is something that needs intervention. I read the DC regs on animal neglect and there are no clear definition around leaving an animal unattended. But it seems if he has access to food and water and is inside out of the elements, it’s not technically neglect. I have offered several times to let him out or bring him to my place when she is not home, but she has never accepted. So then I am just the nosy landlord, or is there something more I should/could be doing?
Hello all! There is a dog poop problem in my neighborhood. It is so bad that people have even hung signs encouraging people to pick up their dog poop.
Anyways, I have two lovely adoptees and a third, a mastiff, that was abandoned at the house that we purchased — he call him the most expensive dog we ever purchased, because he came with the house. We take care of our pups — vet, groomer for the hairy one, glucosamine for the older ones, and special diets for each.
More importantly, we pick up our dog poop. We pick up so much poop that we order poop bags from Amazon by the thousand. We pick up so much poop that we have a designated poop can to throw the poop in. We pick up so much poop that sometimes when there is another dog’s poop next to our dogs poop, we pick up that poop — because it is the neighborly thing to do. I even offered to share my poop in a package for someone having package thief problems to act as a “Trojan package”.
There are some people that have yelled at me while my dog is pooping on the frontage. Most recently, while my dog was mid-poop and I already had a poop bag on my hand, a neighbor, who has not been very neighborly at all since we moved in, opened her second story window and yelled, “You better pick up that up.”
So, I want your suggestions — How can I say back that is entertaining to me or the people witnessing to keep the mood light when someone is so angry they they need to yell at me before my dog is even finished pooping?
