Our roadtrip to Washington DC was a short one but we made the best of it with our Shibas. We opted out of sigh-seeing at the National Mall and DC museums to spend more time outdoors with our pups. There are was a dog run nearby and we went there often during short walks around the Foggy Bottom neighborhood where we stayed in the River Inn Hotel. It was also on the way to the Georgetown Waterfront Park and shopping district.
Since the visit was so short, we didn't have much time to set up meetings with friends. We only saw J's old college friend and decided to hike together with his girlfriend's Maltese at Theodore Roosevelt Island. It was a beautiful sunny Saturday sandwiched between a chilly Good Friday and rainy Easter Sunday. We were so happy to have the great weather for the hike. It was only 1.5 miles around the island but we made the most of it. There were lots of other leashed dogs around and they were happy to splash around at the shore but Shio and Emi were perfectly content staying away from that doggish nonsense.
In the last photo of Emi, I put her on a tree stump next to a little plush pink poodle that someone found on the trail. She was posing like a little statue and paid no mind to it but we thought it was cute!
Stay tuned for the last part of our DC trip series!
