“Dear PoPville,

I was a resident of the Northeast DC home that was intentionally set ablaze on June 4th.

My fiance and I lost our dog, Tenley, and my neighbor her dog (Biggy smalls) and a cat (Lila).

We wanted to acknowledge their lives in some small way:

To Lila: You may have been a devilish cat, but I loved you anyway. I’m so grateful to have had you by my side for 13 years. I loved you both so very much and miss you everyday.


To Biggie Smalls: May there be plenty of baby carrots to munch on and people for you to cuddle with where ever you are.

Today would’ve been Biggie’s 5th birthday, and I think this is a great way to remember him and the other furry friends we miss so dearly.


To Tenley (aka T, T-dog, T-money): We hope that Great Dane heaven is a place full of plush, king-size beds, peanut butter by the spoonful, and grassy fields to roll around in. We hope you know how much you are loved and missed. High-five, sweet girl. Love, Mom & Dad.



We don’t have photos, but a very loving pit-bull, Bella, was also lost in the fire. She made so many smile. xo Bella.

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for giving us a public place to recognize the furry family members who were taken from us. – Laurie, Mike & Lauren”
