courtesy dogwalking service needed for a Quincy Place NW dog- to assist a long-time resident

See this 03-07-2017 message:

A neighbor needs help.  This should be a great way for dog owners to assist a long-time resident.  Please edit this for best results and run more than once. 

Let us please use the strength and idealism of our youth to support our aged friends. 

Ms. Dee Brown of 15 Quincy Pl. NW needs help with dog-walking.  The dog's original owner, Mr. Jimmy Brown passed away last year, and Mrs. Brown is already quite busy caring for her great-granddaughter, who is confined to a wheelchair.  Mrs. Brown also copes with diabetes and cataracts, and walking a dog is something she can't do at the moment.

Smoky is a friendly dog, and a loved member of the household.  If neighborhood dog-walkers can stop by and help out the family, that would be welcome. I hate the idea of Bloomingdale becoming so gentrified that long-time residents can't be cared for.  Any dog-walkers who can add an extra friend either mornings or afternoons would be so welcome!!  She (Dee) has a leash for Smoky.

Gentrification should include taking care of our older, more vulnerable residents.

  1. Hi,

    I live around the corner on North Capitol from Ms. Brown and would be more than willing to help out with Smoky. I have a dog of my own, and we've met Smoky a number of times on walks around the block. What's the best way to get in touch with her and set something up?

  3. I live just down the street, on Quincy Place. My dog would be so delighted to have Smoky join us on our daily walks. How can we get in touch?

  5. Right now you’re probably reading this message because you’re desperate to finally learn how to not only train your dog quickly and effectively, but you also don’t want to have to spend a huge chunk of cash on professional dog trainers or read yet another dog training book that doesn’t get you results.

    Don’t worry, you’re NOT alone in your frustration!
