“This is Harlan (above), a red tick coonhound and resident of Adams Morgan. Harlan’s favorite things are being in Rock Creek Park, eating a Pleasant Pops dog treat popsicle, and sleeping in. Harlan was adopted from City Dogs Animal Rescue in December 2013.”

“This is Scrapple the dog, who lives in the Brookland neighborhood of Washington, DC. Scrapple is a Border Collie-Chow Chow mix who was a rescue by way of West Virginia. He resides in a row home with a sizable backyard that he likes to watch (and chase) squirrels in.”

“Aurora is a fabulous tabby cat living in Dupont Circle. She rocked this outfit for DC Pride. She is an absolute cuddle bug and very tolerant of silly outfits. What more could you want?”

“This is Dolce. He is an 8 year old Toy Goldendoodle. We live in Bethesda and his favorite thing to do is watch TV or roam the streets for scraps of food. He also goes to Petsmart for daycare a few days a week.”

“This is my grizzled old man, Apollo. We enjoy living in Columbia Heights. Apollo is a senior Great Dane that I rescued when he was about three years old. He is a lovable grump to those he considers family (and the ladies, he loves the ladies).”
