This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Lane, a mixed-breed rescue dog who is afraid of floor lamps.

Here’s what owner Ryan had to say about his pup:

Lane is a 3-and-a-half-year-old mixed breed that I believe is a pitbull/whippet mix. Ryan, her owner, rescued her while he was getting his Bachelor’s Degree from Virginia Tech, hence she’s named after the Hokie’s Lane Stadium.

Lane is a playful dog that loves having fun with other dogs and chasing after squirrels while going for walks on the Bluemont Junction trail behind her house. Lane’s favorite activity is going on hikes and running through the woods in the Blue Ridge Mountains while she is visiting her grandparents’ house during the holidays. She is a very quiet dog and hardly ever barks, unless it is at the mailman. The roommates in our house recently got several remote control helicopters and she enjoys watching them fly around and attempting to snag them when they fly too low.

For some reason, Lane’s biggest fear is floor lamps. She is always checking on them to make sure they haven’t moved. We spoil Lane by allowing her on the furniture, and she uses that privilege to its fullest extent. Unlike some other dogs, she is excellent in the car, she just curls up and enjoys the ride. Any time myself or any of my roommates come home from work, Lane gets extremely excited and always needs to pick up an item in her mouth while relentlessly wagging her tail.  The first item she usually picks up is her bone, and if that is not within sight, she will pick up some very unconventional items, such as blankets, shoes, or socks.

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Eleanor Mittens, a tabby cat who “might be a ninja in training.”

Here’s what owners Sarah and Shaun had to say about their athletic animal:

This is Eleanor Mittens, our 2-year-old domestic short-hair tabby, though her small stature and playful nature have earned her the moniker “forever kitten.” She was adopted at PetSmart as a rescue kitten from Last Chance Animal Rescue in Waldorf, Md., and shares a birthday with her adoptive cat-dad.

Eleanor is tremendously athletic, racing around the house and building obstacle courses out of cat furniture, people furniture, laundry baskets, and whatever else she can think of to leap over or jump onto. She might be a ninja in training, as she is also quite adept at sneak attacks. Her all-time favorite toy has been with her since her kitten days — it is a stick with brown feathers at the end, which she will chase and carry around in her mouth like a dog. She is very affectionate and especially enjoys being cuddled in the kitchen.

As a truly modern kitty, Eleanor is also quite tech-savvy. She enjoys borrowing an iPad on occasion to play games (Cat Toys 3D in particular), watch videos with her people, or to snap the occasional selfie. Eleanor is a constant source of amusement to us, and we hope her photos and story bring a smile to your face as well.

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Puff, a transplant from Ohio who’s getting used to Arlington’s urban environment.

Here’s what owner Emily had to say:

Puff, a 4-year old “yorkipoo,” was born on a farm in Ohio. She was initially skeptical of urban living (we had to teach her to walk on surfaces other than grass), but she now embraces the city life. Puff enjoys the smells, sights, and sounds of Pentagon City, Clarendon, and Shirlington — a few of her favorite destinations.

Puff is often mistaken for a puppy due to her diminutive size, exuberant energy, and (sometimes) juvenile etiquette. But Puff approaches her job as watchdog with unmatched maturity. She loves to spend the day on a “throne” of pillows perched atop the sofa, where she has a perfect view of her front yard and street. No car, jogger, dog, or blowing leaf escapes her watchful eye, and she dutifully alerts us to every movement and sound. On her daily patrols of the neighborhood, she ensures that no squirrel goes unchased and no smell is overlooked.

After a hard day’s work, Puff enjoys cuddling up with her parents for some nice tummy scratches (and lots of treats).

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Rufus, “the most adorable dog in the world” with a serious drinking problem.

Here’s what owner Ted had to say about his home’s inebriated inhabitant:

Rufus is the sweetest dog in the world. He loves running around our apartment and fetching tennis balls. Rufus is a quiet dog most of the time; he almost never barks and is perfectly house broken. Whenever one of us is having a terrible day, we cuddle up next to Rufus and take a quick nap on his warm belly. He loves to cuddle and will sleep outside my door if I don’t let him in the bed.

What I love most about Rufus is that he is the perfect dog for Arlington. He is low maintenance — you pretty much don’t even have to feed him — and you can leave him in the apartment for long stretches of time and not really worry too much about it.

Rufus, however, has a more mischievous side as well. He loves to play pranks on us. Some might say that he has a “drinking problem,” but we think it’s more just a phase. He has the cutest nightly ritual where he drinks copious amounts of hard liquor and passes out on the floor. Despite his many flaws and inability to move independently, we still love him like a member of the family. Please make Rufus, the most adorable dog in the world, Arlington’s Pet of the Week.

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Rudy, a labradoodle transplant from Portland who ditched the “hipster lifestyle” to move to, according to one metric, the seventh-most hipster city in America.

Here’s what owner Noah had to say:

This here is Rudy. He’s a labradoodle from outside of Portland who decided that the west-coast “hipster lifestyle” wasn’t exactly for him (although he has been know to curl up in a flannel to read Hemingway every so often).

Named in part for the classic 1993 motivational football movie, Rudy is a natural athlete. He can be found at the Clarendon Dog Park running laps, or swimming in Four Mile Run, or just chasing bunnies in the yard. After a long day, however, Rudy is always down for a cuddle (so long as he gets three-quarters of the bed).

In the case that any eligible bachelorette pups are reading this, Rudy can be easily wooed with empty water bottles and salmon jerky. And while he is a mama’s boy, he definitely knows how to let loose and have fun.

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Mr. Waffles, who his owners say would sound and look “just like Matthew McConaughey” if he were human.

Here’s what owner Grace wrote on behalf of her deliciously named pup:

Howdy! My name is Waffles, and I’m a Southern gentleman from rural South Carolina. After being rescued by Homeward Trails, I was immediately adopted by two lovely ladies (what can I say — with these doe eyes and sparkling smile, I can easily melt even the coldest of hearts). I’m a 4-year-old miniature lab mix, and I enjoy the simple things in life — good company and good eats! I also am just a tad fancy — I have a penchant for wearing bow ties, and I’m usually sporting some trendy ensemble from Barks Brothers.

When I’m extremely happy or content, I like to snort like a pig! My joyful attitude always brightens others’ days. I am a favorite in my apartment building, and I can usually be found carrying one of my many felt squeaky toys in the building’s dog park. My hobbies are: sleeping on the couch, ignoring my cat brother Pancake, dancing to Nat King Cole (a fellow soulful crooner), and receiving Wylie Wagg treats! My owners always say that if I was human, I would probably sound/look just like Matthew McConaughey.

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Dewey, a rescue dog who gets his love of reading from his librarian owner.

Here’s what mom Jessica had to say about her academic animal:

Hi, I’m Dewey! My parents adopted me in September from Homeward Trails. The main antagonist of my storyline, the vet, says I’m about 9 months old. My mom was finishing getting her degree in library sciences from the University of Maryland at the time, so they named me Dewey (after the decimal system, naturally).

I told them to “call me Ishmael,” but whatever.

I’m just your run-of-the-paper-mill canine. My folks think I’ve got some Australian Shepherd in me, with a bit of mystery mixed in. I love the classics — visits from granny, belly rubs from mom, hopping on pop, and chewing on socks (that one’s still pretty novel to me). Mom and dad put me in day care, where I get to play with my best friends. The other guys aren’t much for reading, but they sure are a bunch of characters.

My favorite books include “Green Eggs and Ham,” “If you Give a Mouse a Cookie,” “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs,” and “The Very Hungry Caterpillar.” You don’t have to be a Sherlock to figure this out, but since I’m still a young adult, I’m ALWAYS hungry. I can’t wait for it to be warm again so that I can stretch out on the grass with a one of my good reads, good snacks and a good scratch!

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.
