Joining the annals of awesome animals hitching rides comes an instant classic. And a corgi no less.
Thanks to Lex for sharing this awesomeness:
“Saw this woman on a bike, with a corgi, in a backpack (!!) near the Georgia Ave metro this morning. I don’t know who she is, but she and her doggo are clearly doing things right. Definitely put a smile on my face first thing in the morning!” Read More
I am reaching out because a friend had her dogs stolen over the weekend during a domestic violence incident. The dogs were taken from the home and according to the police were dumped “somewhere” in NW DC. We hope the public can help locate the pit bulls before something terrible can happen. The dogs are a couple, and the female had puppies a few weeks ago, and they still need their momma. Read More
Thanks to Allison for sending from Capitol Hill.
At least they haven’t busted out the security camera, yet…
I’m curious if you’ve posted previously on seeking recommendations for any great dog training services in DC, with preference to any they do at home training. I am currently fostering to adopt dog #2 and he’s a bit unruly and destructive. And I’d like to nip that in the bud before dog #1 gets any ideas.”
This sign spotted in Adams Morgan. I guess some find it rude to dump bagged dog poo in a person’s trash can, but I’d say it’s not stellar neighborly behavior to post security camera footage of your neighbors either!”

My neighbors in the apartment next to mine (we share a wall) recently got a new dog. The problem is that whenever the owners aren’t home, he barks incessantly (howls can be heard across the hallway) and the owners seem not to care or are not bothered by it. One of our other neighbors even wrote a note to them recently complaining and politely asking them to do something about it.
I love dogs and completely understand that they can be under stress when in a new home and alone, but this has been going on for multiple months now and is getting out of hand. I shouldn’t be able to hear his howls hours on end from my living room. What is the proper thing to do… get my apartment management involved? Talk to the neighbors again? I don’t want them to remove the dog but there has to be a proper way to handle this.

“Did you know that more pets get lost on July 4th than any other day of the year? Fireworks can be terrifying for our pets, so please do your best to help protect your pets this holiday. The below tips are taken from the American Veterinary Medicine Association’s website, at www.avma.org
- Make sure your pets – cats and dogs alike – have identification tags with up-to-date information.
- If your pets aren’t already microchipped, talk with your veterinarian about microchipping. This simple procedure can greatly improve your chances of getting your pets back if they become lost.
- If your pets are microchipped, make sure your contact information in the microchip registry is up-to-date.
- Take a current photo of all of your [pets] – just in case.
- Leave your pets at home when you go to parties, fireworks displays, parades and other gatherings. Loud fireworks, unfamiliar places and crowds can all be very frightening to pets, and there’s great risk of pets becoming spooked and running away.
- Consider putting your pets in a safe, escape-proof room or crate during parties and fireworks.

Our dog will be 15 yrs young in August. For the past 8 months he’s been battling an eye disease in both eyes. His left eye healed and his right eye did not, which resulted in it removal. It’s been 3 wks since his procedure and he’s back to his normal lively ways (yay!!). During all of this we’ve been unable to properly groom him. We need a groomer who will take great caution when trimming around his face because his remaining eye is still susceptible to injury. Does the PoPville community have any recommendations for senior dog groomers or dog groomers that make house calls?”
Amazing. Thanks to a reader for sending on Saturday:
“Witnessed a girl riding a scooter in Shaw with a cat in what appears to be a purpose-built backpack.
Unclear how the cat feels about this.”
This takes me back to July 13th 2017, which was also awesome: Read More
This is Pavi of Stanton Park. She’s an outdoor cat we fed once seven years ago and, well, you can figure it out from there. The last two summers she’s developed a reaction to something that affects her nose, face and ears. It’s nothing in our flower garden nor mosquitos. It started appearing before the flowers or bugs. We brought a vet to the house but they couldn’t identify the cause. If anyone has thoughts on treatments please let us know. (We would bring her in the house but my wife is terribly allergic. We built her a nice, insulated house for the cold months so otherwise she’s fine.)”
