Arlington Pet of the Week: Bam Bam

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is a mix Maltese and Yorkie — or “Morkie” — who shares a nickname with currently-injured Nationals star Bryce Harper.

Here’s what Bam-Bam’s owner, Rex, had to say about his pet:

Bam Bam is an 8 1/2 pound, (just about) 4-year-old Maltese/Yorkie mix (“Morkie”).

He’s lots of fun and is just as content hanging out around the house, or running around outside. Bam Bam is a born entertainer and has no problems hamming it up for attention, especially if he suspects treats are involved. He has a very kind and gentle demeanor and is very good with children and strangers.

I had already settled on the name “Bam Bam,” and his breed (“Morkie”) when I found that there was a Morkie litter available, whose owner had already named one of the puppies, “Bam Bam.”  Seeing that as a sign from above, I immediately picked him up and the rest is history. He’s an absolute pleasure to be around and coming home to him is easily the highlight of my day. Everyone should have a pet as devoted, gentle and low maintenance as Bam Bam.
