    Is there any chance that this dog is Lexington? Either way, I hope that poor dog makes it and finds a lovely home!

    • Anonymous

      Probably not. Lexington had a microchip.

      • untrue

        Actually, that’s not necessarily true – my friend’s dog escaped a few weeks ago and despite their chip and calls to the washington humane society, their dog was listed online later that evening- after biz hours- so the poor little guy had to spend a night in the clink before they could be reunited. SO hope it’s Lexington!

    Lexington….?!? Please tell me there’s a happy ending to this year long search! We all need a happy ending.

  • CoHi

    Her markings look similar to Lexington??!!!

    Somewhat related – last night, there was a black cat in the alley near my home in Lanier Heights/Adams Morgan. I haven’t seen any outdoor cats in the neighborhood, so thought it might be a cat on the lamb, but it was very calm, friendly, and not skittish at all. It let me pet it and it had a collar with a bell, but no tags. I looked online for any information about a missing cat and didn’t find anything. I didn’t know what else to do (and couldn’t bring it into my home), and have been thinking about the little guy/gal all day hoping it’s alright. Any advice if this happens again?

      Maybe post to a neighborhood listserv?

      A lost cat will usually be scared/ skittish. (That is, you might be able to approach it, but it will do a dance– shy away, come a step closer, shy away, come a little closer, til finally you can pet it.)
      A cat who is calm and friendly is comfortable and confident, and probably on what it considers to be home territory. I wouldn’t worry about the kitty you saw!

      • BethPopville

        That’s what I was hoping!

        • textdoc

          BethPoPville — It could also be a formerly indoor/outdoor cat that’s now indoor-only and has gotten out, or an indoor/outdoor cat that’s been abandoned by its humans and no longer has an indoors to return to.

  • Just tried contacting Officer Russell. I left a voicemail and sent an email. We think it looks like her!

    • CoHi

      OMG YAYYYYY please keep up updated :) I just sent you the link on your FB page too :)

    • Welshi

      ooh yay! fingers crossed!

    • LittleBluePenguin

      Omg Omg omg! I am soooo hoping for a happy end to all this!!! Please update us when you can!

    • AVEnue

      My very first thought was “is this Lexington?” I SO hope it is and that you can finally be reunited with her. Sending all the hopeful, positive wishes your way!

    • I just heard back. Definitely not Lex. Thanks everyone!

      • So sorry to hear that :(

      • textdoc

        Oh, so sorry to hear that — I was really hoping this would turn out to be Lexington. :(

  • mpt
