If you have any fun or interesting animal/pet photos please shoot me an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com with ‘Animal Fix’ in the title and say what neighborhood you’re from or upload to the PoPville flickr pool with your pets name and neighborhood. I can’t guarantee I’ll get them all posted but I’ll do my best.

Astro and Friends

“This duck lives in a big concrete planter in front of the IMF building on 19th Street NW between G and H streets. Yesterday she was nonchalantly sitting on her eggs while gazing unimpressedly in the direction of the big sidewalk press conference about Dominique Strauss-Kahn. I’ve been trying to think of a name for her.”

Name this duck!

“Fritz poising in 16 Street Heights.”

  • Tim

    Clearly, that’s an Incubating Mallard Female. What more name does she need?

    • 14th St Heights

      Very clever. Touche!

    • Em


  • bloom

    Oh that duck is so sweet.

    How resourceful of her to make use of the planter. I wish her the best with her ducklings.

    It’s going to be a hell of a season trying to get the babies out of that planter, swimming and flying. She has got her work cut out for her.

  • pagodat

    Asked her opinion on Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the duck repeatedly described his behavior as “wack”.

  • Fellow Petworthian

    I love that Astro looks like Puss in Boots from Shrek!

  • Dino

    Why do dachshunds always look so melancholy?

  • Panagiotis

    La Grande Seduckteur


  • Sully

    She looks like an Esther to me

  • ess

    I would name the duck Petunia.

    • WDC

      But she doesn’t even have a puddle. That’s cruel irony.

  • Chalk

    Name for the duck: Roberta McCloskey

    • saf

      Oh, very perfect.

  • Anonymous

    Astro! What a beautiful cat!

  • first time caller

    We want more Ernie….
