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. AdoPtville is run by two volunteers who compile these pets weekly from local shelters.

In the Nation’s Capital, everybody needs a little Juice! Juice is an 18 month old pit bull terrier mix. He gets along with all people, and dogs his own size. He is not good with cats, small children, or small dogs. He would prefer to be in a home without another dog. Juice is toy and food motivated and considered medium/high energy. He likes to play but settles down when it’s time to chill. He is very loyal — when he finds his human he sticks to them like glue. He’s a phenomenal dog with great house manners. He loves long walks and playing fetch. He likes to be in the same room as his person, and suffers a little bit of separation anxiety, but that eases as he settles in. He is currently being professionally trained by Monument Dog Training and will be crate trained, able to sit, heel, down and place on command. This is a super friendly and eager to please boy! Please only apply if you will continue Juice’s training per his trainers guidance. We like to set our pitbulls up for success and good dog manners and obedience are keys to success! This is a great dog! If you are interested in adopting Juice, please complete an application online at www.ruraldogrescue.com, or email [email protected]

Moochie is a 2 year-old gentle girl searching for a home where she can reign supreme as your extremely devoted one and only. Found by a volunteer as a stray, Moochie has a sweetheart purrsonality and a tender disposition – she really responds to soft voices and gentle scratches! Moochie is an affectionate, people-loving girl and she cannot wait to become a cherished family member. She does not enjoy the company of other cats but she LOVES humans, and simply must find one of her own! Please learn more about Moochie and apply to adopt her here.

“Dear PoPville,

My friends and I have casually chatted in the past about going in on a single family home or townhouse together and then converting it into 3-4 apartments that we each could live in. Has anyone who isn’t a developer done this before and have any advice on permits, regulations, etc.? What did you end up having to spend on both the reno (4 kitchens!) and paperwork, etc? Is it costly to split one deed into four deeds? I clearly have many questions but am curious to see if anyone else has done this in DC and what their experience is!”

“Dear PoPville,

I live in Petworth, near the Soldier’s Home and have Verizon for my internet. Don’t have cable and all that so I only need internet.

However, it is 100 bucks a month for JUST for cable. What does everyone think of RCN or cheaper providers. I am older and not that computer savvy so my needs are basic. Essentially, need to get online, watch some Netflix and Youtube, and peruse some websites. No gaming or anything like that. Any suggestions, thoughts, or comments from the readers? Saving 50 or 60 bucks a month would be really helpful.”

I took a sneak peek of the new Jackie Lee’s at 116 Kennedy Street, NW and it’s time to get excited. Given the space and the people involved I feel like this has the potential become the Red Derby/Wonderland for the neighborhood. This is a very good thing. Stay tuned and in the meantime they are hiring servers and cooks. Those interested can email resume to [email protected]
