Looking for an extended stay in the nation's capital? I have a charming little house and a little (sometimes charming) dog in a charming suburban neighborhood just across the District line.

I am an independent documentary photographer and adjunct professor at George Washington University. I have traveled to many places for extended periods of time in pursuit of compelling stories to tell. These days though, I mostly travel to visit my 89-year-old dad down in Florida. I have two small small dogs, Gypsy & Omar. Omar is the better traveler, so I take him with me. Gypsy is more of a homebody, so she gets to stay in her home (fortunately, she allows me to live in it too).

Gypsy is a 9-year-old low-maintenance dog, but she does tend to bond (quickly) with one person. Feed her twice a day, let her in and out to do her business according to your schedule, toss her favorite toy around - especially in the morning (it's her favorite routine), and she'll be happy. You can take her on short walks, or stick to the yard, especially if it's very hot out. If she gets out the front door, not to worry - she always sticks very close to home.

Fish - even lower maintenance: aquarium light turns on and off on a timer. Sprinkle some food 1-2 a day. They'll be good to go.

I may be biased, but I do think my house is about the cutest, most charming little dwelling in the neighborhood. Architecturally, it's like a Cape Cod with training wheels (no dormers). There is a large, fenced-in yard in the back. French doors in the small guest room open up to a flagstone patio with a Webber grill. There is a full bathroom on the first floor and an open loft room upstairs with a clawfoot tub right below the skylights (sink & toilet too).

The house gets beautiful morning and late afternoon light (because I'm a photographer). Other amenities include:

- easy off street parking

- central AC

- one block from a park and walking trail

- 1.5 blocks from bus stop

- about 1 mile from the nearest Metro stop

- close to cute shops, grocery stores, and neighborhood restaurants, bars, and cafes.

- downtown DC is just a short Metro ride away
