Anyone summering in DC with a dog? I am, and am trying to find a roommate with the same situation.

What kinda dog is that julie?  Super cool looking.

Also, Dupont is not really a commute.  Don't live in Foggy Bottom.  There is nothing there and it is over priced.  You can walk from Dupont to where you will be working (most likely K street).

She's a cocker spaniel :) Thanks! Thanks all for the advice-- I think I will look at Dupont... I have lived on the VA side, but wanted to be closer to work this summer-- the metro is great, but the commute time is ridiculous.

Are you serious?  I live in VA and commute via metro Downtown everyday.  It takes 15 minutes.

This is crazy. It takes little time if any time at all because it's very easy you get on the blue/orange line, and sit. Six minutes later= work.

I work for a BIGLAW firm in DC and live in DC but I wish i lived in VA sometimes because it's more quiet.

Bully for all you living directly off the blue/orange line who can skate right into work. LOL. When I last lived in VA, I alternately worked off the green and red lines, which required driving to a metro stop or waiting for a bus, then getting to the metro, waiting for a train, switching tracks and then having a brisk walk. Not exactly a 6 minute commute.

I'm now considering leaving the dog with family this summer.

Yeah, that commute is a pain.  My advice would be to look at places like Ballston (orange line), Clarendon (Orange Line), Court House (Orange Line), Crystal City (Yellow/Blue), Rosslyn (Yellow/Blue), etc.... Living downtown is over-rated.
