Arlington, the home of seven individual dog parks, is quickly becoming a haven for locally-focused blogs about dogs.

There are at least four dog-related blogs with an Arlington connection at the moment, including two that have sprung up in the past couple of months. They include the NOVADog Magazine blog, Two Dog Tales, Animal Eyes Arlington and the new A-Town Dog Blog.

The A-Town Dog Blog, which launched earlier this summer, is solely devoted to photos of dogs in Arlington. Why start a site about dogs in Arlington?

“Arlington has lots of dog owners, and lots of great dog parks, and I enjoy taking photographs of the dogs,” the anonymous dog blogger writes, on the blog’s About page. “I’ve had owners ask me for copies of the pictures I’ve taken before, so I decided that I’d just start sharing them publicly.”

Animal Eyes Arlington, which also launched earlier this summer, focuses on “making a positive impact on the lives of companion animals and their families.” Recent posts have including a missive about the rehabilitation of abused pit bulls, a profile of a therapy dog that participates in the Paws to Read program at Arlington libraries, and an article about dog trainers who help train rescue dogs.

    People in Arlington have an unhealthy obsession with their dogs. I’ve a dog 24 years of my life. I loved my dogs. But I didn’t need to take them EVERYWHERE I went or treat them like they were children.

    People in Arlington have an unhealthy obsession with their children. I’ve had one 28 years of my life. I loved my kid. But I didn’t need to take him EVERYWHERE I went or treat him like he was my friend.

      I have neighbors that dress their dogs up in Christmas sweaters and have their picture taken with Santa Claus.

  • Fairlington resident

    Have you ever been to Fairlington? Dog owners there tried to get the tennis courts converted to a dog run. Dog owners are constantly complaining about having to constrain their precious canines on leashes while cats are allowed to roam the neighborhood freely. Several dog owners told me they don’t use the existing dog run because it smells. Mature childless adults with dogs are more mind blowing than 20 something single women with cats.

  • As a dog owner myself, I actually love dressing Lars up for Halloween. LOL
