We’re #4!

Whoo-hoo! We rock! In a recent ranking of the most pet-friendly cities in America by real estate web site, Arlington, Va., ranked #4! The only cities ranking higher were St. Petersburg, Fla., (and that’s due to cats), Portland, Ore., and Seattle, Wash.

Find out what other cities ranked best for pets!

And, since today is predicted to be the hottest and muggiest in four years in the DMV, thought I’d give you a little something to cool down with. Bet Sundae isn’t the only one wishing she was back enjoying January’s snowfall.

Wordless Wednesday: valet barking

So cute! The Wagtime store on 9th St NW in DC near the convention center offers boarding, walking, a spa, pet products…and valet barking!

Wordless Wednesday: awesome wrap!

Not a wrap for your stomach, but food for your soul. Love how the Humane Society of the US turned their entire building into a billboard for animal welfare–seen by thousands of DC commuters every day!

Airport puppy love 

Even though I was heading home to my beloved pups, my face still lit up with joy at seeing an adorable Black Lab one recent evening in the Providence, R.I., airport. Even better, his vest said, “Pet me!”

Cody is part of PVD Pups, a program at TF Green airport to help relax stressed travelers. 

Just 8 months old, he’s so chill he was accepted into the training at 4 1/2 months, the youngest PVD Pup so far. 

Way to go, PVD!

La-Z-dogs for adoption! 

Well, I can’t guarantee the dogs will be mellow, but what better way to spoil your new furry family member than by adopting them, then letting them pick out a new piece of people-furniture to sprawl across at home at the same time?! 

Come meet adoptable pets from the Washington Animal Rescue League at the La-Z-Boy furniture store in Logan Circle downtown on Saturday, June 11 from noon to 3 pm.

Lucky Dog Rescue barbecue pics

Took the girls out to the Lucky Dog Animal Rescue barbecue in Potomac today, and had a wonderful time! Their 7th annual event, it sadly is the last as the generous family who owns the several acre fully fenced property are selling the home soon. Check out these happy pups who will most certainly take looooong naps when they get home!

Happy (almost) Memorial Day weekend!

I meant to post this yesterday for Wordless Wednesday… Spotted this cute artwork in the window of Cork & Fork on 14th St. NW while taking a lunchtime stroll during what I fear is all we can expect of a “Spring” this year — two days of 80 degrees, sunshine and no humidity.

Fort Ward Park: convenient dog walk destination

If you’re tired of taking the same path for your daily dog walks, Alexandria’s Fort Ward Park is a great place to add some variety to your venues, and it’s inside the Beltway!

Fort ward

The park is located on Braddock Road just east of 395, and offers a paved .6-mile loop that is popular with two- and four-legged walkers and runners.

You can also exercise your brain and learn about Alexandria’s post-Civil War African American community with new historical signage throughout the park. With a playground and lots of green space and picnic tables, Fort Ward is a nice place for family play time or a take away meal, too.

Fort Ward Park is open 9 am to dusk seven days a week at 4301 West Braddock Road,
Alexandria, Virginia 22304.
