Washington, DC


“This evening while walking my pup, I ran into a woman whose dog Bunker got away a couple of days ago. (My heart is breaking for her; in her place, I’d be devastated.) Thought I’d spread the word.

Bunker is a chihuahua mix, about 10 lbs, and apparently he is a shy and skittish fellow. He was last seen around the corner of 4th and G Streets SE. Marion Park and Garfield Park are nearby.”
