From the Mayor’s Office:

“On Tuesday, February 21 at 6:30 p.m., Mayor Muriel Bowser will join Ward 4 Councilmember Brandon Todd to sign the Extreme Weather Protection for Animals Emergency legislation into law. Introduced by Councilmember Todd, the legislation will require dog owners in DC to ensure that dogs left outside during the winter are sufficiently protected from inclement weather.

Known as Momma’s Law, the legislation is named after a dog that was repeatedly left outside in below-freezing temperatures in the Petworth neighborhood. In January 2016, concerned neighbors grabbed the attention of local leaders and residents when they tried to intervene to get the dog properly sheltered.

WHEN:
Tuesday, February 21, at 6:30 p.m.

WHO:
Mayor Muriel Bowser
Brandon Todd, Ward 4 Councilmember

WHERE:
Ruta Del Vino
800 Upshur Street, NW”

If you have any animal/pet photos you’d like to share please send an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com with ‘Animal Fix’ in the title and say the name of your pet and your neighborhood. Your photos will go into the queue (usually 2 weeks wait) and will be posted in the order I receive them. If you’ve already entered your pet and would like to do so again – that’s no problem – just space the entries out a bit. Please try to send horizontal photos 640×480 (medium size on your iphone) if possible. If you’re not using an iphone any size is fine.

Apologies for the delay in posting – and thanks to all who emailed and tweeted. I have no excuse except for the fact that I’m battling a bit of a fruit fly problem that is slowly driving me insane. But never mind that… Richard Sandoval’s Zengo closed last week and the Washington Business Journal reports:

“Circa, the neighborhood brasserie with several other locations around Greater Washington, will open in the Zengo space at 781 Seventh St. NW.”

You can see Circa’s menus here.

And on their website they have a coming soon slot for a Navy Yard location too (99 M Street, SE.)

“Does anyone know of any good shoe shine stands? I typically head down to Union Station where they do a good shine for about $10. But it’s a little bit of a hassle heading down there just for a quick shine. Was curious if others knew of any other options in the NW area. Thanks much!”
