Reader Photos: Washington’s Cutest Pets, March 3, 2015

This week, meet readers' pets Ajah, Rajah, Pepper, Chloe, and Mr. Mustache.

Want your pet to be featured on our website? E-mail your pet’s name, location, a brief bio, and a photo to pets@washingtonian.com and use the subject line “Reader Pets.”

Ajah and Rajah (above) are both from Centreville. “Ajah is a four-year-old mix. Her father is a Staffordshire terrier, and her mama is a boxer/pit bull mix. Ajah is a lover and her name means ‘come here’ in Hindi as she was not listening to her [first] first name. Rajah means ‘Prince’ in Hindi. Raja was acquired to give Ajah company during the day while I am at work—literally a pet for my pet—little did I know he would be so cute.”

“Meet Pepper Adele Iyer. Her street name is #freshprincessofDC and her stage name is Nene Leakes. Pepper is an Australian Cattle Dog-mix who loves to fetch, eat noodles (and other delicious, spicy human foods), and give out kisses to humans and canines alike. She was found with her mom, brothers, and sisters on the mean streets of Raleigh, North Carolina, and was rescued from a high-kill shelter by A Forever Home in Virgina. Pepper moved to DC at the wee age of eight-weeks-old.”
“Chloe celebrated her 10th birthday on February 22 by hosting her very own brunch with all her favorite human friends. Chloe is a weimaraner living in Arlington (Court House) with her mom and dad, who she loves very much. Though she’s getting older, Chloe still thinks she’s just a baby and loves snuggles and hugs from anyone and everyone.”

“This is my guinea pig, Mr. Mustache. My wife and I adopted Mr. Mustache from the Washington Humane Society last December. Mr. Mustache lives with his humans on the border of the Adams Morgan/U Street neighborhoods. He loves catching sun in the safety of his pigaloo, munching on lettuce and carrots, and cuddling with humans.”
