Having just rescued a dog whose social preferences I am still learning, and as someone who lives next to a beautiful hiking trail, I’ve been wondering: would dog owners be more inclined to obey leash laws if they understood that doing so makes these trails a welcome space for *all* dogs?
When a dog owner refuses to leash their dog, they are marking that trail as a space for dog-social dogs only. (more…)

I’m hoping someone can help me figure out a question I have about changing my name with the DMV. I got married last year and have changed my name with Social Security, but have yet to receive my updated card.
Can I go to DC DMV with my marriage license and get my name changed without the updated Social Security card? I’m reading conflicting information online and can’t get a straight answer when calling 311.
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.
Sweet Seraphina is a gentle, petite girl who loves to be near her humans. In fact, her favorite spot is on the couch right next to you. She loves ear rubs, chin scratches, and lots of whispered sweet nothings! She will even meow or chirp to let you know she loves the attention!
We think Seraphina hurt her back before landing at an area shelter, but she is fully recovered now and is discovering how much fun it is to race around the house and be an active young kitty again! To learn more about Seraphina, please visit Lost Dog and Cat Rescue Foundation’s website.
Unlike many seniors, Bruno decided he didn’t like Florida, so he packed his bags and moved up North. This 8 year old fellow loves to be showered with pets and attention. He’s still playful for his age, and he loves snuggling. He would, however, prefer to be the only dog in his home. Why not adopt Bruno and show him all that the DC area has to provide! To learn more, visit Lost Dog and Cat Rescue Foundation’s website.
I had a taste for some dessert and remembered that there’s a new Insomnia Cookies on H St near my condo in Trinidad (half a mile away).
To my surprise (or dismay), Insomnia Cookies has specifically carved Trinidad OUT of its delivery zone. Maybe they think this is the Trinidad of 2006…even if it was, residents still deserve delivery options.
Does anyone know of any other H St food locations refusing to deliver to Trinidad??”
