Arlington Pet of the Week: Hendrix

Dogma Bakery

Our latest Arlington Pet of the Week is Hendrix, a 5-year-old beagle who loves the beach the Shirlington dog park.

Here’s what owner Julia had to say about Hendrix, who lives in Courthouse after being rescued from the woods of rural Virginia.

Hendrix is a 5 year old beagle who I rescued in college when he was a year and a half old. This little bundle of love was discovered in 2009 by a friend’s family in the woods next to their backyard in rural Virginia. Although he was covered in hundreds of ticks and had several types of tummy-worms, his prior neglect never stopped him from being the wonderful and loyal companion that he is! Although he isn’t the sharpest tool in the shed, he quickly learned three valuable commands — “sit,” “down,” and “KISS!”

Hendrix has the classic “beagle howl,” but with this little guy, quality is better than quantity — he rarely makes a peep! When prompted to actually let out a bellow, it is usually at something quite menacing — a floating helium-filled balloon, for example. When he isn’t pawing at your hands to get you to pet his belly, he enjoys snuggling, lying in the sun, walks, and (when we are able to get out of town) sprinting down the beach — until he finds some seaweed or a crab to chew on, of course.

Since moving to Arlington, Hendrix enjoys long walks along 14th Street to mark his scent in the monkey grass. Although market rules don’t allow him to visit the Courthouse farmer’s market each weekend, he loves greeting all the market-goers with a tail-wag as they walk by our second floor balcony. His favorite Arlington pastime by far, however is visiting the Shirlington dog park! With this cuddly boy, there’s never a dull day.

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.
