August is coming, and amid the mad summer dash to enjoy every rooftop deck and patio in town, we also get to vote in the primary. This year is considered an off-year election, since there’s no presidential race, but there are still a number of elections at various levels of government. Washington has a top-two primary system, meaning that the top two candidates, regardless of party, will face off in November. Locally, that can mean a left-leaning candidate will run against a lefter-leaning candidate, though there are races where Capitol Hillers might see an actual (R) on the ballot in the fall.

CHS met Indira (human) who was watching Alice (canine) for her friend Tess (human). Alice is a 3-month-old “mostly or completely Pomeranian.” Indira tells us it took a while to get to the park. “We were walking her down here and she can’t walk straight apparently,” she (human) said. “She’ll scuttle sideways and realize she’s sideways and walk in a big circle and start all over again.” We (human) highly recommend a walking friend like Alice.
