“Dear Friends, Neighbors and Dog Parents,
We deeply regret having to make this statement, but Washington DC’s Dept. of Health just paid us a visit and told us we are NO LONGER ALLOWED TO HAVE DOGS on the property until further notice. This means all dogs including Andy Pants. We are very sorry for this awful change, but we have no control over it. Write your council member, we are.
Ward 1 CM Brianne Nadeau ([email protected]) since both Midlands and Wonderland are both in her district,
Just put it all in the same email
Midlands & Andy”
One reader notes from the comments: “The Midlands Inspector told me that “this all stems from the Washington Post.” They supposedly put out an article or something about a complaint they received about all the dogs on patios in dc. This is what she told me.”
Ed. Note: For those who wish to debate kids in bars, you may have a refresher here, also about Midlands.

I am just wondering if you know of any DC area animal shelters that are taking in Hurricane Harvey displaced animals, looking to make room in their shelters by having volunteers foster? I know a Seattle area shelter is taking in something like 300 Hurricane Harvey animals, but I have not heard anything about the DC area’s shelters.”
From the Humane Rescue Alliance:
“With animals being relocated this week to Washington, DC from Texas due to Hurricane Harvey, the Humane Rescue Alliance (HRA) is appealing to animal lovers throughout the region who may be considering adopting a new pet to visit adoptions centers today. Dogs and cats adopted this week will clear room for arriving animals from Texas. All pets available for adoption at HRA have been spayed/neutered and microchipped. (more…)

Thanks to all who passed on from DogMa Daycare & Boarding:
“We promised to send you the latest news in real time…CDC has just announced that higher level testing results show Fred did NOT have rabies. DC Dept of health will put out an official release soon. But we wanted to let you know as soon as the DOH contacted us!
The great news: THE PACK IS BACK!! Home confinement is off.
Hopefully we will learn WHAT happened that led the initial test to be positive and the latter one negative. This is what the DOH told us: (more…)
We just got a new puppy this weekend- her name is Maggie and she’s an 8-week-old Goldendoodle. We are in love.
Of course two days after we get her home, I open PoPville and I see the rabies report. I’m kinda freaking out because we literally just got her this weekend and she still needs all of her puppy shots.
With all this in mind, first- am I overreacting? and second- does anyone have any recommendations of vets in or around DC that offer comprehensive puppy vaccinations and checkups for one price? I remember with our first dog, Scout, we paid close to $1000 for all the startup vet visits, and I’m trying to avoid that the second time around. And in light of all the recent rabies reports, I want to make sure I get all of this squared away as soon as possible so Maggie doesn’t get sick.”
