Hey, hey! We opened DC's newest park today! #AlethiaTannerPark, named by popular community suggestion and vote, freed herself from slavery in 1810 by selling produce in Lafayette Park. She went on to free family members and friends, and help found churches and educational institutions in DC. Proud to have worked on this amazing project. The opening was delayed by the coronavirus, but I'm so glad to have worked with many great folks to bring about another venue to celebrate community, practice civility, and exercise democracy. Run, go play! . . . #washingtondc #igdc #acreativedc #202creates #eckington #noma #nomabid #ward5 #parks #newpark #parksandrecreation #urbanpark #dcchasers #exposeddc #popville #dcist #dogpark #playground #fotodc #theotherdc #walkwithlocals #mydccool #washmagphoto #dc #leslieknope #reallifeleslieknope @dcdpr @noma.bid @dcdgs @eckingtonparks @forresterconstruction @nelsonbyrdwoltz @studio27arch @jtruxdc @jub_rogers

Thanks to Lindsay for sending:

“Hey there! That’s me and my pig!

Her name is Lucy and she is an Assistance Animal to my boyfriend who is a navy vet. She helps more than you can imagine! To answer a few questions that we get a lot…she’s more like a cat and less like a dog, she’s very clean, does not smell at all, she is litter box trained and has salads for every meal. She is six months old and won’t get much bigger. She brings us so much joy and happiness, we’re thrilled she’s doing that for so many others during these crazy times!”

Here she is running in a tutu: Read More

Thanks to Bryan for sending the above from Columbia Heights.

And thanks to AL for sending the above from Georgia Ave Monday night. Somebody sent a photo to me last week on twitter and that was the first photo proof I’ve seen, I always assumed it was myth. I post here for posterity.

UPDATE: Owner found, dog vaccinated – thanks all!

“Dear PoPville,

I’m looking to get in contact with the owner of the dog who bit my dog at the protest on Saturday. Unfortunately, I didn’t get his info. I believe he was a white male with a brown dog who looked like maybe a lab/pittie mix, and they were stationed near a tree with a silver water bowl out. He asked if my dog was going to be ok, but I just wanted to get her out of there. I didn’t realize she was bleeding until we were down the block. I had to take her to the emergency vet where she received a couple staples. My main concern is whether or not his dog is vaccinated. Read More

UPDATE

“Dear PoPville,

A good samaritan jogger found Monty cowering on the side of the road and was able to capture him; another good samaritan pulled over to call us and help coordinate a pickup. We cannot thank them enough. After about 24 hours outside, Monty is back home safe, scared and a little scratched-up but unharmed. A huge thank you to everyone who kept an eye out for Monty overnight. We could not have found him without the help of our local community, who took the time to get a scared dog back home.”
