Arlington Pet of the Week: Duke

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Duke, an unfortunately named retriever mix, considering his owner is a graduate of the University of North Carolina — Chapel Hill.

Here’s what Tar Heel Chris had to say about his pooch:

I am submitting the following bio for our dog “Duke” to be considered for Pet of the Week. He is a 3-year-old retriever/Aussie mix. He is a shelter dog from Lucky Dog Animal rescue that I adopted for my wife for our wedding day. His name was a slight issue given that I am a UNC grad but I try to refer to him as “The Duke.”

He loves the local dog park and hanging out with the staff at Trader Joe’s. Scott Run Park has become one of his favorite places to go swimming. Even though I thought he would be a rough and tough shelter dog, he REALLY loves to spoil himself at Wiley Wag with their treats/toys/dog ice cream.

Want your pet to be considered for the Arlington Pet of the Week? Email [email protected] with a 2-3 paragraph bio and at least 3-4 horizontally-oriented photos of your pet.

Each week’s winner receives a sample of dog or cat treats from our sponsor, Becky’s Pet Care, along with $100 in Becky’s Bucks. Becky’s Pet Care, the winner of three Angie’s List Super Service Awards and the National Association of Professional Pet Sitters’ 2013 Business of the Year, provides professional dog walking and pet sitting services in Arlington and Northern Virginia.
