Found Pit

photo
I just found this beautiful grey pit bull running in front of our house on the 1000 block of 9th street. She is the sweetest dog and has a red color with a green rabies tag. She is now at the NY ave shelter and they are tracking down info from her rabies tag. Please please post and maybe someone is looking for her! Last time we posted the golden retriever's owner saw the post. Thank you!!!
Marc

O/T: was there some recent gang violence or something like that at 13th and I NE that I haven't seen mentioned here? This morning I noticed that a signpost there has both a ton of stuffed animals attached to it, and dozens of empty liquor bottles gathered around it.

The memorial thing at 13th and I is for a guy that grew up on that block and was murdered near 24th and Benning in early April. Apparently a friend of his he had known since elementary school was high on PCP and shot him. More info here:

the memorial at 13th and I is for a recent homicide victim who grew up on that block. He was killed somewhere off of Benning Rd, near Langston Carver.

He was killed in Kingman Park (south of Benning). Also, the neighborhood north of Benning is generally referred to as Carver Langston, not the other way around. Just FYI.

the guy who was killed was really nice. He lived at 1225 till it was sold and flipped by Rainbow properties. He always said hello and stopped to talk. Very sad that he's gone.

Speaking of dogs, any further news on that dog attack from a couple of weeks ago? The only followup I could find in the media was, predictably, about the Nats. Did they ever find the owner of the dogs?

PS: Before someone points it out, yes, those dogs were NOT pitbulls. But they were loose dogs in the street, so this story brought it to mind. Not trying to reinforce breed stereotypes.

that's why i said NEAR carver langston, not IN. Fine, Kingman Park it is. Is that better?

speaking of lost dogs, I passed one in my car this morning in the alley behind Florida Ave and West VA. It was really early in the morning and the dog looked like yorkshire terrier or some other small dog. I hope his owner found him.

Thanks for the explanation re: the memorial, everyone.

yes thanks for explaining that a memorial does NOT have to mean gang violence...

Why does this person keep capturing neighborhood dogs? It's so weird....

Marc said...

@Anonymous, 8:25:00 AM - This is only the second lost dog I found in front of our house. The last had be claimed by his owner and was extremely grateful. Would you rather it be hit by a car? Or scooped up and sold by some neighborhood douche bag like yourself? Apologies for having a good heart and taking ten minutes out of my life to help a pit. Thanks.

why does the dog catcher feel the need to attack someone because of a simple comment. is he using ad hominem attacks because someone outed him for stalking lost dogs?

the whole thing gets weirder and weirder!!

Any update on the dog? It'd be nice to know she found her way home.

Yes, that "sweet young man that said hi to everyone" used to stash his small bags of rock coke around the alley in the neighborhood...just saying

thank you for taking care of this lost dog marc. i am sure his owner will apreciate the time and effort you took to post this so he is reunited with his family. as far as some of the responders to this posting, there are all kinds. certainly, those that find it odd that a neighbor would try to help a dog wandering about the neigborhood is not the kind of person that would expend his or her time to help out a dog that had lost its way. i prefer to live in a neighborhood where people take the time to help each other out and look out for one another, not criticize the sincere actions of others. but then again, i am a grown up.

But seriously, why is this weirdo stealing people's dogs?

inked said...

Cut it out with the dog stealing bit. I get that it's a joke, but it isn't that funny, and you are confusing a lot of people. If you have to make a joke about a lost dog, stick with the usual one about how he looks delicious. At least that's obviously a joke.

A good reminder to get your dog microchipped. And if your dog is missing, you should check at the shelter...so many dogs people never even look for (maybe they just assume the dog was stolen).

Dog deliciousness is NO JOKE.

You got that right. Dog deliciousness is serious. A serious delicacy. Except when stolen. Off my plate.
