“Dear PoPville,

Has anyone else ever noticed little piles of powder seemingly strategically placed along sidewalks around DC? I’ve lived here for less than two years but I see these piles all over town, in Southwest, Navy Yard, Downtown, and today in NoMa along L St and 2nd St NE. They are sometimes different colors, but always dropped in neat little piles all along sidewalks and buildings. What’s the deal?

A woman who saw me taking pictures told me she saw a man dropping the powder yesterday and thought it was for some kind of scavenger hunt?”

If you have any animal/pet photos you’d like to share for the regular fix 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. AdoPtville is run by two volunteers who compile these pets weekly from local shelters.

Copeland is a silly, fun, energetic and loving young dog. He pounces on toys like a champ and is generally a goofy and happy pup. He wants to bring all of his joy to his adopter! He promises to be a good boy if you’ll give him lots of treats to help him put on some weight. Copeland has already learned “let’s go”, “sit”, “go to mat”, “trade”, “go get it”, and he is working on “come”. He would make a terrific companion for anyone with a house and yard in which he can feel secure and fully express his playful nature.

This goofy young boy loves socializing and playing, and he learns new games and commands very quickly. Copeland loves to go running, but he is also great inside. When company is over – including kids – he will make friends instantly and be the life of the party. He loves the outdoors but feels anxious and is reactive to crowded or busy city streets, so a quiet suburban environment would be the best fit for him.  Apply today to meet handsome Copeland through City Dogs!

Bruce Banner aka The Incredible Hulk, the big Green Avenger! This Bruce Banner is more like his human namesake than their alter ego. He is a big cat but worry not, he won’t turn into a big green fighting machine and stays in his sweet, lovable cat form. Bruce is incredibly smart, with multiple PhDs, so you may catch him occasionally conducting an experiment or two to answer his latest query, like how small a shoebox can be and still fit a cat. But aside from that, Bruce is ready for a relaxing life, full of head scratches, cat toys and cuddling. He gets along with others and is currently hanging out with his buddy Steve Rogers aka Captain America! Who’s ready to give Bruce the relaxing life he deserves? He did save the world a couple of times, right?!

Bruce is an absolute sweetheart (and a big doof) and is guaranteed win over the hearts of anyone in the household. He LOVES attention and loves to cuddle so he constantly chases you around for pets and climbs on top of you when you’re laying down. He’s a great lapcat and would fit into any household without a problem. Apply today to meet this great guy through City Kitties!

“Dear PoPville,

Any word from anyone on what folks on the street said was a shooting in Capitol Hill? That is literally what people were saying on the sidewalk down the block when I saw that We, The Pizza was taped off, a great number of police were present and Pennsylvania Avenue was blocked.”
