Take a Break from a Group Home and Dog Sit in Columbia Heights

“Dear PoP,

In my group house days I was always eager for a chance to pet-sit for friends as a way to enjoy a night or two alone, enjoy their generally better amenities like cable TV and hot tubs and maybe explore a new neighborhood. I know there are a lot of group-house people on this site, so now that I have the house, the dog and the amenities myself, I’m looking to find someone who might like to do the same.

I just posted on Craigslist under “housing swap” so anyone can contact me that way. (Or just type “dog sit prince of petworth” in the search craigslist box.”

This sounds pretty cool. But just to be clear, this is from a reader and you will be dog sitting a dog, not the prince of petworth.
