Arlington Pet of the Week: Huggins

Dogma Bakery

Meet Huggins, a spirited bulldog and this week’s Arlington Pet of the Week.

Here’s what his owner had to say about him:

Huggins is a four-month-old English bulldog named after the beloved coach of the West Virginia University basketball team. He came home with me during March Madness and was the perfect excuse to be lazy and stay home to watch basketball all day. He spent most of that time taking naps and would go for short walks during commercials or halftime.

This pooch is extremely friendly, loves people, other dogs, and is an attention-getter to all who see his little wrinkled face. The typical response from men and women alike is ‘awwww… oh my God he’s so cute!’ While he is not very fast and doesn’t like to run, he is like a linebacker and will tackle and pin down his other canine friends in the neighborhood. He is excited for the day that he is big enough to pin down his bulldog cousin and best friend, Porkchop.

Even though he is a well-behaved dog, Huggins is currently enrolled in puppy kindergarten to refine his skills and learn some tricks. He managed to be fairly cooperative while my friend Jill, a professional photographer, captured some great puppy pictures.

Huggins’ favorite activities include napping, chewing anything I’ll let him chew, and meeting all who pass by while I enjoy drinking outside at William Jeffrey’s Tavern. Did I mention he likes to sleep? He is the only dog I know that when asked ‘wanna go for a walk?’ runs to hide underneath the bed.

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).
