|Callie contemplates her next move.|
Thanks to Callie, a very lucky WARL alum, I spent this beautiful fall day learning how fast a squirrel can run from a herding dog -- VERY FAST. Not only that, but Callie's person, Diane, gave me a an insider's tour of the Congressional Cemetery -- a cemetery with a history that is more than 200 years old! I saw where John Phillip Sousa is buried as well as Herbert Hoover and some lesser known,but no less important people, like baby Clara. The main reason that we were visiting the cemetery is because it serves double duty -- it is a members-only dog park, where dogs can run and play and chase squirrels right in the heart of the District of Columbia. Obviously, some of the people buried would be very happy to know that dogs and their people congregate in the cemetery. Congressman Tom Lantos, a champion for animal welfare is buried there.
