Arlington Pet of the Week: Hudson

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Hudson, a rescue dog. He enjoys riding in the car with his owners, particularly if they’re heading to an outdoor festival. But sometimes he just wants to chill out at home in a big pile of pillows.

Here’s a little more from Hudson’s point of view, as translated by his owner, Dayna:

My name is Hudson and I’m a new resident to the Shirlington area in Virginia. I knew a little bit about Arlington before we moved here a couple of months ago, since I was quite fond of the Shirlington dog park visits I would get to take with my parents. Now that we live so close to the Shirlington dog park I try to convince my parents to take me there all the time!

I am like any other ladies man. I love long walks all over the place, dates in the park, meals out with my family, road trips (even all the way to Florida!) and experiencing new things. I am told that I’m very cute, funny, smart and inquisitive.

I really love living in Arlington and am so glad my parents adopted me from Operation Paws almost three years ago now! They even made the move from our condo in Chinatown, D.C. to Shirlington so I could have a backyard to play in all the time. They are the best, and I know I’ll make them proud as the Arlington pet of the week!
