REMINDER: Please consider sharing a photo of your own pet by emailing it to me at lee[at]redbricktown[dot]us or drop it in our Flickr Pool. Please let us know the name of your pet and the neighborhood where you live.

We Alexandrians L O V E love our pets. For today’s pet photo of the day, here is our Serena, who lives with us in the Carlyle neighborhood of Alexandria, Virginia. She loves perching herself atop these pillows during the day.

I posted this earlier on Instagram because, why does Washington, D.C. only get to have fun? If we tried to put something like this together this winter, would you participate?

Hey #AlexandriaVA wouldn’t John Carlyle Park be a GREAT place for. Snowball fight? #justsaying

If you see the lost dog described below, call the number.

Via Del Ray Parents

We just moved into Warwick Village on kennedy st and our dog got out of the yard.

Although no one is familiar with him I’m giving it a shot.

He’s a boxer mix. Looks like a stout boxer puppy, about 35#. He’s 11 years old and answers to Jellybean. He’s fawn colored with white flash, had a bulldog under bite.

He can be skittish around new people so if you see him, please try to gently coax him to come to you.

Please let me know if seen!

Phone 410-900-9656

thank you so much!
