Arlington, VA

This week’s Pet of the Week is Cooper, an energetic dog who hits both the gym and the dance floor.

Here’s what he wanted to say to his fellow Arlingtonians:

Hi, my name is Cooper. From my earliest years, I have considered myself an athlete. They say I’m pretty fast. In order to keep in shape I routinely work out, as seen in this video. My New Year’s resolution is to compete in a triathalon. Please let me know if anyone knows how to modify a Trek road bike for paws. The cycling leg is my white whale thus far, but I am motivated to overcome the challenge.

But don’t pigeonhole me. I’m not just a jock. I do have a softer side, as I was a cornerstone at my parent’s wedding. There were serious moments, but I also was called upon to get the dance floor going. In preparation for the arrival of my first sibling, I’m teaching myself to read. I look forward to being as involved in his delivery as I was in my parent’s union.

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).
