Halfway up the block, Astrid the Dalmatian began pulling at her leash. Her owner, Ron Murray, was in the cool-down phase of his morning jog and was not about to break training by picking up his pace so he tried quieting the dog with obedience commands. That usually worked, but not this morning. As they approached the corner of thirty-second and R Streets at the edge of Dumbarton Oaks estate, Astrid became more agitated and barked aggressively. At six-forty in the morning this unseemly behavior would annoy the sleeping residents of well-behaved Georgetown, so Ron reined in Astrid and berated her in hushed tones. Astrid, however, was not to be consoled.
