Your Afternoon Animal Fix

by Prince Of Petworth May 3, 2016 at 3:25 pm 11 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.


“Sadly, Flash passed away last night after a long illness. Thanks for all the guinea pig love. He was very sweet and energetic and loved people, and the staff and kids in the library [Watha T. Daniel/Shaw Library] loved him. Here’s the last picture we took of him, eating his favorite snack.”


“Tank, old english sheepdog in trinidad”


“I’m currently fostering an awesome purebred Doberman named Apache from the Washington Humane Society on NY Ave. He’s a goofy, funny, 7 1/2-year-old that loves his toys and loves to snuggle!”

    oh, Flash!!! I am so, so sorry. You were a great pal to all of us who frequent the library. Our children loved to watch you. Hope you are feeling better now… :(

    Sleep sweetly little Flash :(

  • HoodCat

    RIP Flash.

  • I love them all! So sorry for the loss of Flash.
    I’m surprised Apache hasn’t been adopted yet, he’s gorgeous and so fun. Also, I have a rottie mix from WHS names Otis, and I really want to adopt Apache and call him Potis, aka Pointy Otis, but I can’t have 2 and he needs to be solo.

    Apache has such a sweet face! I hope he finds a home soon and thank you for fostering him.
    RIP little Flash.

    R.I.P. Flash. I like how he looks almost perfectly cylindrical in that photo.

    RIP Flash.
    Tank looks sweet.
    Apache looks cute with his sheep.

    RIP Flash. If it’s not too soon for the library to take on another guinea pig, there is a very cute one (also black and white) named Lylah available at the Washington Animal Rescue League.

  • Jessica

    Truly, Flash will be missed. Is it too soon or can I put Speedy Rye out there as a suggested name for his replacement? RIP, Flash.

  • Felony I

    Rest easy Flash

  • Tank is so handsome! I especially love the contrasting bandanna.
