Echoing: I heartily encourage you to make a donation to the DCist team for Servathon 2007 - even if you don't know anyone on the team and don't feel comfortable making individual pledges to strangers, you can donate by clicking "General Team Donation."
Unrelated, the Mutt Strut on June 3. I plan to hobble my ass through that as well, I think. We almost got oursefs' a dog there once, the league is very well run and needs donations, like most all shelters do. Almost-Dog was significantly better behaved than our current beast. OH DREAMS OF WHAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN.
