“We live in Adams Morgan with our dog, Fergie, and her cat brother, Max (above). Their favorite activity is nap time.”

“This is Detective Lennie Briscoe, NYPD (ret.), also known as Briscoe. He’s a five-year-old, 72-pound greyhound who retired from dog racing in 2013 and currently resides in the U Street Corridor. He’s shy at first, but incredibly sweet and loyal. Since he was rescued last year, he’s slowly learned how to be a real dog. His favorite activities include chasing tennis balls in Meridian Hill Park, sitting on couches, belly rubs, and stealing Mom’s tacos. Besides tacos, he also likes to eat bananas, tomatoes, and Greek yogurt.”

“Our 1.5-year-old Siberian furbaby, Kylie ‘Kitty’ Thor Knauer, is one of the brightest personalities we’ve ever encountered in an animal. She talks more than most people, responds every time we address her, and loves to cuddle. She’s incredibly intuitive and always knows how to cheer up, amuse and comfort her humans. She loves playing hide and seek and likes to commandeer water glasses left on tables. Kylie lives in Chevy Chase, MD with her parents.”

“This is Ebenezer Scrooge. He and his humans live in NoMa. At one and a half years old, he still hasn’t quite figured out how to run with his spider legs. Gracefully walking down stairs also still evades him. His favorite activities include making loud noises while chewing on plastic bottles and sticking his big ol’ droopy lips on the countertops (and your food).”
