Your Afternoon Animal Fix

by Prince Of Petworth October 26, 2016 at 3:15 pm 8 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.


“Boone of U Street asks, “We can stop now? Pleez?”


“Firefly, aka Fifi, is a PetConnect Rescue alum and lives in Cleveland Park. And she’d like to go to sleep now if you could please shut the light off. She’s also on Instagram at @fireflysbingfield.”


“This is Basalt of Columbia Heights, getting ready to sleep for 5 days straight. He’s a retired racer, whose career was short-lived because he was pretty terrible at it (thank goodness).”

    Boone makes a cute pumpkin.
    Fifi is beautiful!
    Lovelovelove greyhounds! Sleep tight Basalt.

    Basalt is like Santa’s Little Helper!

    And yeah, I hope Boone got a nice treat for that.


    Where does Basalt’s baller dog bed come from?

      I made it with fabric my parents got from their country (The Gambia).

    Happy to see Basalt living the good life. Too many of his fellow racers aren’t so lucky

    Aww, Boone is adorable in that costume!
    Fifi is very pretty.
    Basalt — what a great name! And a majestic-looking dog.

  • Neighbor

    I’m glad Basalt can enjoy his retirement with you!

  • Fifi’s Dad

    Just spoke with the cat. She said she feels for Boone after we made her wear a similar costume last year. She also challenged Basalt if he ever wanted to come out of retirement despite my explaining that slow grayhounds are still faster than cats. She then insisted we get a new duvet cover made from Gambian fabric.

    And of course, she said thanks for the compliments. :)
