“Dear PoPville,

My dog went missing yesterday in the Shepherd Park neighborhood and has been missing now for a full day. Here is the info on her:

Avery – 2-3 year old female pit bull mix. She is shy but loves food so will come to you if you have treats or peanut butter. She escaped from a backyard at Portal Drive and Eastern Ave NW. We live closer to Petworth so she could be wandering between the two neighborhoods as well. She was last seen around 2 pm Wednesday 1-17-18.

My contact info is (202) 330-1105. Thank you.”

Thanks to Brooke for passing on from DPR:

“We’ve got an exciting event coming up… DPR’s first ever Puppy Bowl! This fun event is our spin on an indoor dog park for puppies and adult dogs to enjoy!

On Saturday, February 3rd, there will be two indoor mini dog parks setup at Columbia Heights Recreation Center. [1480 Girard Street, NW]

“Field 1” will be dedicated to puppies, 20 weeks and under, to participate in a 5 on 5 free play “game” facilitated by our Puppy Bowl referees! Each participating puppy will receive a commemorative Puppy Bowl bandana and a picture with our official photographer.

“Field 2” will be larger and set aside for a limited amount of adult dogs to enjoy. (more…)

“Dear PoPville,

We got him back!

A woman found him at 19th and independence SE. he came right up to her. He must have given up running. 830am this morning.

The entire community was amazing helping us get the word out and put eyes on the streets. We are eternally grateful.

Ed. Note: I saw the response on twitter and neighborhood listserves and it truly was amazing to see so many folks rally to find Gator.

If you see any posters out, feel free to tear them down.”

“Gator is 15 pound chihuahua basenji mix with fox like coloring and features. He was wearing a bow tie and shirt for NYE. He is cautious around new people but extremely friendly after he warms up.

We have an update. He was seen this morning at benning road where the bridge starts over the anacostia at the north east edge of the rfk parking lot. He’s likely in the woods on the river bank.

Please call Mark at 301-254-0599 with any info.”

“We found this incredibly sweet pooch running loose without a leash or collar around 8:00 this evening at 6th/O Streets NW. She has an amazingly friendly temperament and was not afraid of us at all. She seems well-nourished and clean, so I doubt she is a stray.

We took her to the Humane Rescue Alliance shelter on NY Ave NE so that she would have a warm place to stay tonight. She weighs 28 lbs, is spayed, but not microchipped.”

From an email:

“The Cheeky Puppy will say goodbye to Dupont Circle as of Christmas Eve. While we’ve loved being part of the community, it makes the most business sense to focus instead on our burgeoning online business with a more flexible footprint than full-time bricks and mortar allows.

We are fully stocked going into the holiday, but have seriously discounted some items in preparation for our pivot – 30% off collars and leashes chief among the deals! We also have some fixtures available that won’t be moving to our online hub.”
