Coolest Pet in PoPville #34, #35, #36, #37 and #38

Rosie 148

“This is my dog Rosie. She was born in a shelter in upstate New York. My partner and I fostered the whole litter, so I’ve had Rosie since she was four days old. She’s now thirteen years old, and for the past six years has been working with kids in DC’s elementary schools through a Washington Humane Society humane education program. She’s unfazed by noisy second-graders rushing her in a crowd, screaming “Rosie, Rosie, Rosie!” She keeps her cool, even when kids tell us about their dogs who were stabbed, shot or hit by a car. Rosie radiates love and the kids eat it up.”

“Diego is a very friendly (and kinda spastic) seal point Siamese — he’s a clown and a cuddler, I’ve been told by more than one person that he’s the most dog-like cat they’ve ever met.”


“I’ve attached pics of my Basenji, his name is Buddy, he’s 1 1/2 years old, and lives in Columbia Heights, but was born in Nairobi, Kenya. His ears pick up radio waves, and he can yodel!”


“This is Burbank Spiffers “The Cat” – rescued from a farm in Winchester, VA 10 years ago. His brother was trampled on by a horse.”


“Here is an entry for the coolest pet contest and some interesting facts about Ike the cat:

– He has six toes.
– He lives on Irving Street.
– He drinks from a water fountain.
– He watches a lot of TV.
