A.P.A.W. Veterinary Hospital and Wellness Center has been privately owned since 1998, when Drs. Patricia Peynado-Boyce and Lizel Salmon took the reins. Their three-pronged approach to animal health—compassion, innovation, and education—promotes a warm and well-informed venue for furry companions.
To exceed the demands of the credo's three facets, the staff invests in highly customized care. Many of their tools are typically seen only at specialty practices, such as endoscopy gear and spider-flavored lollipops for cooperative ferrets. Though their emphasis on preventive care can help stave off many illnesses, their hospitalization services remain at the ready: the team issues daily progress reports to owners and oversees patients kept onsite with late-night through early-morning monitoring. Heated kennels, outdoor play areas, and sunlit cat-only perches decorate their daycare and boarding space. The facility is located less than three miles from both the 495 Capitol Beltway and Baltimore-Washington Parkway.
Antique, collectible, and pristine new furniture stands proudly around the Consignment Furniture Gallery’s 10,000-square-foot showroom, a vast repository of pieces classic and modern, foreign and domestic. Therapedic and Eclipse mattresses welcome prospective sleepers, who sink into comfy surfaces as soft as the feathery beard of an elderly pelican. Decorative accessories such as a yellow ceramic vase ($38.50) brighten up bare rooms with colorful splashes. Adorn walls and still houseguests with artwork such as a framed architecture print ($95), or ornament bedrooms with a vintage painted blue chest ($250). A pair of large green swirl ceramic lamps ($325) cast soft lighting across living rooms, producing an aura of vintage style that impresses visitors and mystifies housepets.
When Bob Long returned to Washington, DC, from service with the Merchant Marines in 1948, he immediately set to work building fences at his father’s modest business. The duo operated out of a permanently parked city bus, taking on clients through the years and building a reputation that eventually outgrew their makeshift office. After purchasing the company from his father in 1960, Bob recast Long Fence and Home as a complete provider of household upgrades, from window replacements to full kitchen remodels.
Under Bob's leadership, the company continued to stay ahead of technology and homeowners’ demands, adding solar-energy conversions to a lengthy list of services that already included siding, insulation, gutters, and doors. Though Bob's daughter, Jill, currently operates the company with her husband, John DePaola, the two stay true to Bob's vision by constantly seeking out new ways to make homes and bat caves more energy-efficient.
