This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Buffy, a cat who shares no relation to a certain vampire-slaying teenager.

Here’s what owner Rose had to say:

We found this delightful blonde bombshell at the Arlington Animal Shelter in Shirlington. She had not been at the shelter long, and stood out like a movie star. For being part of the orange tabby line, she is more buff-colored, and so the name Buffy. I tried to call her Buffy-Bull’s Eye due to her odd circular stripes — just “Buffy” seemed not grand enough — but neither the vet nor my husband would go along.

She is medium-hair, and her fur is luxuriously thick. I have no trouble finding a cat sitter: everyone is enamored of her. With an indoor cat, owners go out of their way to keep the cat from sleeping so much and getting dull. Luckily, Buffy likes window sills. Buffy has a cozy nap and look-out place on my desk against the window: add an old beach towel and desk lamp and she’s got the good life. The other nap place is her round fleece “snuggy,” which we are afraid she will soon outgrow.

“The Buffer” keeps us laughing; after eating, she scratches at newspapers or whatever is under her plate to cover her food, I guess. But the oddest and funniest thing she does is how she comes running when I’m changing sheets. As I’m flapping the clean sheet in the air, she makes it to the bedroom and is under the sheet before it can fall flat on the bed! My husband and I collapse laughing, and then have to remove Buffy to the den until the bed is made. “Cats want to be where you are” and it is so true with Buffy.

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Noor, an Australian shepherd/husky mix with different color eyes and the ability to tap dance “like Fred Astaire.”

Here’s what owner Lydia had to say about her rescue pup:

This is Noor, short for the term “light within” in Farsi, and she totally demonstrates how bright her personality is!

Noor was found happily roaming freely through the woods of West Virginia ridden with ticks and burrs before someone spotted her (likely thinking she was a coyote), and called Animal Control. She was quickly transferred to the Animal Welfare League of Arlington and her unique face was posted on their Facebook Page suggesting she would be up for adoption.

As luck would have it, she randomly appeared on my news feed, and I filled out an application to adopt her! It was like a Match.com commercial; I fell in love at first sight!

Noor is just over 1 year old. She is the smartest Australian shepherd/husky mix who will gladly shake your hand upon meeting you. She snuggles like a sausage in the blankets, tap dances like Fred Astaire, and will sing you a tune when she’s feeling frisky.

Noor has a gentle Boxer boyfriend named Apollo and she enjoys convertible car rides in any season. She has shined a light in our lives, and has been a blessing in every way.

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is George, a curious kitten who’s currently hunkering down for his first winter.

Here’s what owners Scott and Jami had to say:

George is a 6-month-old Lynx Point Siamese kitten from the Rockingham County, N.C., Animal Shelter where his human grandmother volunteers. As his name might imply, George is as curious as the cartoon monkey. He recently experienced his first snow in the Columbia Forest neighborhood of Arlington. He spent the holidays meeting extended family and friends for the first time and managed to refrain from scaling the Christmas tree. (Author’s note: Good kitty!)

One of George’s favorite pastimes is stalking his beloved prey, a Carolina blue stuffed bear. He also enjoys waiting patiently for the ice maker gods to drop ice cubes from high above for him to scoot across the kitchen floor. George will likely be a writer-type when he grows up, as he can produce a pen from seemingly nowhere. They mysteriously go missing but George always seems to find them in the oddest places. After intense bursts of playful energy, George enjoys lounging by the fire or on the laps of his adopted parents, Scott and Jami.

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Oreo, a delicious dog who has “taken a liking to Sam Adams beer.”

This is what Oreo’s owner, Ron, had to say:

When I’m not busy trying to avoid being dunked in a tall glass of milk, or figuring out ways to legally change my name so I can avoid that whole issue in the first place, I enjoy hanging out with my canine friends in Clarendon. While ladies always comment on the “dogs” that are out in the local establishments, I don’t think they are referring to me and my friends as they are always happy to see me.

My best quality is making people smile. Even grumpy people going to work in the morning sometimes cheer up when they see me. I love traveling to new places and have explored many local parks. I really love the snow and can’t wait to stick my face in it, especially after a fresh bath.

I’ve also developed a refined palette and have taken a liking to Sam Adams beer as you can see. I’m hopefully I might get a brother; rumor has it Snicker Doodle might be heading to my house in the near future.

I do lots of tricks, but something unique I do is the Michael Jackson moonwalk. That’s right, I moonwalk! I can send a video of that too if you’d like to see it. I have to admit, it’s pretty cool.

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Gus, a West Highland white terrier who “gruffs” at jaywalkers.

Here’s what owner, Jim, had to say about his pale pooch:

We brought Angus (Gus for short) into our home in October of 2014 after a long trip back from Canton, Ohio, where Gus was born. Gus was the second-to-last puppy in his litter of West Highland white terriers to be sold, and after seeing some photos and videos, we knew we had to have him.

Naturally, he loves to watch football — especially his favorite team, the Ohio State Buckeyes. His favorite activity, though, is gruffing at jaywalkers from our high-rise window. When he’s not gruffing at the scofflaws, he can be found playing fetch, chewing on his mallard, or refusing to allow his owners to take out the trash without being able to tag along.

Gus has quickly made friends with the 70 doggie neighbors in our building, and as many young pups do, has taken to Instagram to wow the lady Westies of the Internet. Naturally a quiet dog — except for the gruffing — Gus will bark when it’s time to play fetch and throw himself on the ground with a hearty sigh if he is refused, which is rare.

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Buddy, a dog who showed up at his owner’s door on Christmas and never left.

Here’s what owner Sarah had to say about her :

Hi, this is Buddy. We believe he is between 3-4 years old and a Beagle/Lab mix.

Last year on Christmas night we were visiting family in Pennsylvania when this little guy wandered up to the house searching for food. It was 11 degrees and his nose was frozen over. He was freezing and seemed like he hadn’t eaten anything except garbage for a few days. We brought him inside for the night and he slept by our sides without making a peep.

The next day we had found his owner and she claimed that he was out in the cold for four days. She also said she no longer wanted him and we could have him if we wanted. So, needless to say we brought Buddy back to Arlington with us.

Buddy enjoys walking/running, sniffing, cuddling, and watching the neighborhood through the front window. He loves playing with other dogs, especially his lady friend Callie and cousin Izzy. He is a huge Dallas Cowboys and Penn State fan and loves to watch the games with his parents.

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is a kitten who goes by Chandler Bing. Could he be any cuter?

Here’s what owner, Rachel, had to say about her friendly cat:

In the spirit of the season (and full disclosure), my name is Chandler Bing and I have three New Year’s Resolutions for 2015: to lose weight, finally catch my own tail, and become Instafamous (follow me at Chandler.Bing.The.Cat)

Let me tell you a bit about myself: I was born on June 27 and was rescued from the Animal Welfare League of Arlington on Sept. 20 by this beautiful young lady named Rachel Marrion. It truly was love at first sight.

More importantly, I enjoy going for long walks from the kitchen to the bedroom and back. I enjoy hanging out in the sink, getting my paws wet, and running around the house like Tom Cruise from Risky Business. But my favorite thing to do is to watch my namesake on TV; he’s almost as funny and cute as I am (perhaps my resolution should be to be more humble?)

Finally, I would like to take some time to thank those people most special to me. First and foremost, God, for keeping those shadows just the right distance away from me. To my Aunt Kate, for seeing my full potential and pushing me to go for this. And lastly, to my owner, Rachel. She is a teacher, and without the two-week break over the holidays, none of this would be possible. Thank you.

This week’s Arlington Pet(s) of the Week are Charlie and Ginger. Charlie is a 3-year-old golden retriever, Ginger is a 1-year-old cocker spaniel-poodle mix, and the two prove friends come in all shapes and sizes.

Here’s what owner Kate had to say:

Charlie is a 3-year-old golden retriever. He loves to lounge and sleep in the most inconvenient places, like right in front of the basement door or by the kitchen cabinet you need to get into. He loves to sleep in the bed with his parents. He often tries to speak — most often when there is food involved at the dinner table. We’re not sure if he thinks he is human or he thinks we are dogs.

Ginger is a 1-year-old cockapoo. Ginger loves to jump up on the kitchen table to help herself to leftover cereal and milk. Ginger is pretty sure she is a big dog trapped in a small dog’s body. She can often be found biting at Charlie’s ankles and jumping up to take a bite out of his ear, but most often she is found standing on top of the couch barking at dogs passing by in the neighborhood. Ginger’s favorite trick is to bolt out of the front door and then run away from her family members as they try to call her to come back.

Charlie and Ginger love their Lee Heights neighborhood. When not exploring the Zachary Taylor nature preserve or fetching balls at Taylor Elementary or H-B Woodlawn (off hours only, of course) they can be found enjoying a puppucino at the Lee Heights Starbucks or waiting for a slice of salami outside Arrowine.

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Cassie, a rescue dog from Kentucky who is a “true Southern Belle.”

Here’s what owner Melissa had to say about her hospitable hound:

We adopted our little monster in January 2014 from a rescue organization out of Kentucky, and it was love at first sight. Lady Crème de Cassis, aka Cassie lives up to her name and is a true Southern Belle. She is just as comfortable at home sleeping on soft blankets and squishy beds as she is running around outside tracking bunnies. Cassie often works her southern charms at the dog park; getting all the other dogs to chase her around is her favorite game.

Cassie’s favorite pastime is eating (and she has perfected her begging face!), so she often gets a carrot or two in-between meals. She also has a bit of a sweet tooth, and routinely head butts us out the door in the morning so that we will leave her with a Kong filled with treats. Of course, she is always happy to see us return and greets us with the most enthusiastic tail wagging.

Cassie rarely raises her voice, but she has been known to occasionally howl at the TV, especially at the dragons on Game of Thrones, and, of course, Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible. Snuggling up on the couch is her favorite way to end a day full of squirrel chasing and chewing rawhides, and every time Cassie cuddles up next to us we know we are so lucky to have this little lady as a part of our family.

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Samoa, a former princess who goes by “Mo.”

Here’s what owner Faith had to say about her cat:

Samoa, aka Mo, is an 8-year-old muted calico cat hailing from the streets of Prince George’s County. As part of the interview during the adoption process, Mo assured her new housemates of two things: 1. She will do all she can to bring joy to the household and 2. She will not shed a hair anywhere in the house. So far, she’s one for two.

Known as “Princess” in her previous home, she has taken to her new moniker with a pride and repetition that only a cat can do. When guests or her housemates enter the room, she belts out a lively, “Welcome to Mo’s!”  Whenever she enters a room, she exclaims, “Welcome to Mo’s!”  Despite the three years that have passed, the phrase continues to resonate throughout the home, despite anyone’s hint that it’s getting old.

When not infringing on corporate trademarks, Mo spends her days sleeping in one of her ever-changing favorite lounging areas, keeping a watchful eye on the neighbors and any surrounding wildlife, knocking things over (plants are her specialty), giving unwanted computer and paperwork advice, and giving her catnip banana the occasional beat down. Her favorite time of year comes every Halloween when she can play dress up and shake down humans for candy.

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Ginger, a “sassy” German shepherd/chow/akita mix is keeping the Pet of the Week honors in the family.

Here’s what owner Felicia had to say:

This is Ginger. She is a rescue dog and became part of our family 7 years ago. A Doggie DNA test determined Ginger is mostly German shepherd, mixed with a little chow and akita.

She was born a country girl and was very shy when she first came to us but she has become quite sassy. Ginger loves long walks, socializing along the way, though she is equally happy lounging at home, looking out the front door.

Ginger’s good looks won her second place of mid-size dogs at the Arlington Dogtober Festival (she was robbed!) and her cousin Moe was recently named an Arlington Pet of the Week.

See the many faces of Ginger. She’s playful, silly, pensive, cute and sassy!

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Duncan, a squirrel-chasing Westie with an Instagram following of thousands.

Here’s what owner Rick had to say about his hunting hound:

Duncan is a West Highland Terrier with a mission to chase every single squirrel out of Arlington County.

Duncan entered our life in November 2011 as a 5 month old. He is almost entirely white, with some streaks of beige along his back. He is a fit and energetic dog that loves long walks with lots of sniffing. He is always happy to say hi to other dogs and he is very gentle with children. He also just loves to be chased — by humans and (especially) other dogs.

Duncan’s favorite place to go is the Glencarlyn Dog Park. Nothing makes him happier than to be running off-leash in the woods. Woe be it to the squirrels in his field of vision for they will be chased (although never actually caught). He also loves to walk in the stream and run around with the big dogs, because he is a huge dog in a little dog’s body.

Of course, there are things Duncan does not love. He doesn’t like Arlington’s hot and humid July and August — it never gets that hot in the West Highlands! He also has a bitter history with the foxes in Lubber Run Park.

A lot of Duncan’s time is taken up with his Instagram community commitments. @duncan_the_westie has (literally) thousands of followers around the globe. It can be taxing being fabulous on a daily basis, but he seems to be handling the pressure well. He is trying to stay grounded and avoid the traps of fame.

We didn’t really know what to expect when this little guy entered our lives, but now we can’t imagine life without him.

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Halley, a corgi-spaniel mix spoiled with belly rubs.

Here’s what owner Laura had to say:

Halley is a friendly, fun loving 1-and-a-half-year-old corgi-spaniel mix. In her free time she loves chasing squirrels, napping and lots of belly rubs.

Halley met her current owners at an adoption day event with Homeward Trails in Alexandria in January 2014. She was very friendly and outgoing and had the longest torso of any dog that day. It was love and belly rubs at first sight!

Halley is an avid collector of chew toys, whether they be ropes, stuffed squirrels with squeakers or even balls. Since moving to Arlington earlier this year, she has begun to build quite the collection. Halley looks forward to meeting other friendly dogs around the Arlington dog parks this summer.

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Trouble, a Labrador/foxhound mix with “not insignificant ADHD” and a reputation as a “vicious snack-hound.”

Here’s what owner Clayton had to say about his pooch:

Yes — his name truly is Trouble. Honestly.

Trouble Dean was born on Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14, 2013. He is mostly black, with some white chest markings, and some not insignificant ADHD. He is incapable of walking a straight line without pouncing on something or stopping to pull over. Although it is rumored that he is a foxhound/Lab combination, our family secretly suspects Trouble was, in fact, born to a jackal/wolverine combination.

Verily, your readers should be warned that beneath those seemingly soft puppy eyes lurks the heart of a vicious snack-hound.  Over the course of the past year he has “saved” our family from such dangers as: socks, soccer balls, shin guards, panties, scarves, and in one particularly valorous feat: a pair of extra puffy ear muffs. If you are wondering where your missing sock is, chances are it’s in Trouble’s crate.

Over his 18 months on this Earth, Trouble has continued to distinguish himself with ever more impressive acts of out-and-out cowardice. He is scared of the water, scared of wrapped presents, scared of balloons and random boxes, and once had an unfortunate accident running from a bumblebee (though we suspect it was on purpose). As such, Trouble ensures that no one in our family is alone. Ever.

He is an excellent jumper — he probably won the Epsom Derby in a previous life. Trouble also is bilingual: he ignores commands in English as well as Spanish. We suspect he probably knows how to ignore more commands in other languages but don’t wish to shame or otherwise intimidate other ARLnow submitters.

In spite of all of this, and in spite of ourselves, we do truly love Trouble.

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Coco Abrams, a rescue cat that’s a champion eater, although she frequent wins eating contests “unopposed.”

Here’s what owner Hannah and mother Tamar had to say about Coco:

Coco is an 8-year-old adopted cat living in the Jamestown Elementary School area. Although she is single, Coco has managed to befriend many of the neighboring cats and is very social. She is often seen rolling around and doing strange poses. Her favorite hobby is eating and begging for more food after she’s done. She is a competitive eater and has won countless food-eating competitions, although she generally goes unopposed.

When not eating or rolling around, Coco can be found sleeping in strange positions or cuddled up with her mother. Her favorite TV channel is the Food Network and she is particularly a big fan of Gordon Ramsey. She’s very protective of her space and family and likes to exert her power over other cats, dogs, and chipmunks. She loves the outdoors and likes to lounge around outside soaking up the sun.

Coco loves to make new friends and is constantly talking to anybody who will listen (even if they aren’t listening, she will loudly talk to them). It’s Coco’s dream to one day own a cat food-based restaurant where she will hire cooks, but be the sole manager and customer.
