Arlington Pet of the Week: Lady

Becky's Pet Care

The first Pet of the Week in March is a 2-year-old beagle that lives with her parents in Courthouse.

Here’s what her owner, Stephanie, has to say about her “petite” pup with a big appetite:

Hello Arlington… I’m Lady! I’m a petite 2-year-old beagle living in Courthouse. I was adopted by my mom and dad in July 2013 after being brought to D.C. from Indiana by some kind folks. I had been left to fend for myself in rural Indiana before I was rescued. Although I don’t remember a lot about my past as a young pup, it has been speculated that I was abandoned by hunters in the area due to the fact that I’m much more interested in a good belly rub and being given treats than hunting. My mom and dad say that I bring them endless amounts of joy and laughter and can always brighten their day with my sunny personality.

Some of my hobbies include: napping, sniffing, cuddling, playing with my toys (I’m still a little confused as to why leather shoes aren’t supposed to be chew toys… the texture is wonderful!), playing with my dog friends, going on walks and most importantly, eating! If it were up to me, I would gladly indulge in an entire bag of dog food in one sitting. No matter what my mood is, I always seem to have the same serious facial expression. Don’t let that fool you, though. I’m only serious when I’m chowing down on my food!
