Your Afternoon Animal Fix

by Prince Of Petworth February 2, 2016 at 3:30 pm 21 Comments

If you have any animal/pet photos you’d like to share please send an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com with ‘Animal Fix’ in the title and say the name of your pet and your neighborhood. Your photos will go into the queue (usually 2 weeks wait) and will be posted in the order I receive them. If you’ve already entered your pet and would like to do so again – that’s no problem – just space the entries out a bit. Please try to send horizontal photos 640×480 (medium size on your iphone) if possible. If you’re not using an iphone any size is fine.

“Hugo is a Basset Hound/pointer mix who lives in Kingman Park. His hobbies include napping, snoozing, and taking it easy.”

    • rachel

  • Rest in peace, Alyosha, and condolences to your people!
    I had to do a double-take before I realized Freya was leaning against another dog, not a plush pillow :)

  • KM

    Alyosha was certainly handsome. I’m so sorry for your loss.

  • navyard

    Porkchop and Freya! I can’t tell if that wrinkly thing is his face or his butt!!! But he looks like a good pillow for the other one. Ah, the life.

  • Cam

    My condolences on the loss of Alyosha. So hard to lose a pet you’ve dearly loved for so long!

  • Emmaleigh504

    Alyosha is handsome, I’m sorry for your loss.
    Hugo has such a sweet face.
    Porkchop and Freya are adorable in their cuddle puddle.

    Corgi Jackson sends his love to Hugo. You’ve been MIA at the dog park!

    • Hugo’s Dad

      Hugo sends his love back to Jackson! He has been a wonderful jogging buddy joining his dad all the way to the Capitol! He will see you all soon at the park :)

  • Omg Freya and Porkchop. I kind of want to call him Furtato though.
    Otis says hi!

    • rachel

      lololol she does look like a potato doesn’t she??

    I am sorry about Alyosha. I had my Milo for about 16 years and and I missed that companionship that had been with me for so long.

  • KPS

    OMG. Possibly the best Fix of all time. So much beautiful and cute and snuggly and precious, and really well-done photos.

    • KPS

      I missed the part about Aloysha. I’m sorry to hear that. I know it’s so very hard to part from a loving pet. I hope Aloysha’s family gets a new pet to love and who needs their love in return.

  • Felony I

    RIP Alyosha

  • Elvis’s Mom

    So sorry about Alyosha. He was certainly a handsome and expressive fellow! I’m sure you miss him, but he looks so loved. What a great job you did taking care of him.

  • u Streeter

    Bassetts and Bulldogs are among my favorite things. Cute cute cute.

  • CVR

    Thank you so much to everyone for the condolences on Alyosha. I’m am so lucky and grateful to have had him in my life for the last 17 years. He was such a loving cat that was already ready with purrs. It’s hard not coming home to him there waiting for me, but I still have his brother Koshka to help. Thanks again all :)

    • Alison

      I’m so sorry for your loss. Alyosha looked very well-loved.

  • Trollopian

    17 years is a good long run, but that doesn’t take away the ache. Rest in peace, Alyosha. Maybe your human will honor your memory by rescuing another.

  • kittycatbob

    Hugo and I have the exact same hobbies.
