Arlington Pet of the Week

Dogma Bakery

Our Arlington Pet of the Week this week is Porter, a two and a half year old Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier.

This furry Clarendon resident recently overcame some scary health problems but never lost his happy attitude. Owners Malarie and Craig wrote the following about their tough terrier.

Meet Porter, a 2 1/2 year old Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier from Clarendon. As you can see in the photos, Porter is a good sport! This year brought a lot of bumps and bruises for the little guy. Late this past summer, Porter was diagnosed and treated for a tough case of Lyme Disease. On top of that, he fought off an icky virus, a headfirst run in with a tree, and a recent choking scare that led to a middle-of-the-night visit to the local animal hospital (it turns out eating your toys can backfire! If only he would learn!) Through it all, Porter has never faltered from his sweet disposition.

While he is painfully shy with most people, Porter is always thrilled to see his favorite humans, their close friends, and his dog walker, Danielle. Like a traditional Wheaten Greetin’, kisses are plentiful. More than anything, Porter is a true “dog’s dog.” He loves nothing more than a good play bow at the local park or a muddy, backyard run with friends. When playtime ends, the softy comes out again. He loves to cuddle. Sometimes Porter thinks he is human, and helps himself to his owners’ bed, even taking the time to rest his head on the nearest pillow (pictured). Most of all, Porter lights up his owners’ lives more than they could have ever imagined, and has given them the chance to meet so many wonderful dog owners in the Arlington community.

The Arlington Pet of the Week is sponsored by Dogma Bakery, which has locations at The Village at Shirlington (2772 S. Arlington Mill Drive) and the Lee Harrison Shopping Center (2445 N. Harrison Street).

Synetic Theater Camps are a wildly fun, highly accessible choice for young people who love moving, playing games, and making memories. Registration is open now for Summer Camps (sessions June 20-August 25) and there are even a few spots left for Spring Break camp, April 3­-7.

Located in National Landing, these performance-based camps are designed for students of all ages – no theater or performance experience required.

Led by professional teaching artists, campers learn acting, movement, and technical theater skills through the lens of Physical Theater. Physical Theater incorporates acting, movement, dance, mime, and acrobatics. If you’ve seen a Cirque du Soleil performance, you’ll find many similarities.

Most first-time campers are new to the performing arts, and teaching artists are well-versed in engaging students at all levels. Parents and campers report that one of the best parts of Synetic is the community, with many families returning year after year because they feel a strong sense of belonging.
