Arlington Pet of the Week: Oreo

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Oreo, a delicious dog who has “taken a liking to Sam Adams beer.”

This is what Oreo’s owner, Ron, had to say:

When I’m not busy trying to avoid being dunked in a tall glass of milk, or figuring out ways to legally change my name so I can avoid that whole issue in the first place, I enjoy hanging out with my canine friends in Clarendon. While ladies always comment on the “dogs” that are out in the local establishments, I don’t think they are referring to me and my friends as they are always happy to see me.

My best quality is making people smile. Even grumpy people going to work in the morning sometimes cheer up when they see me. I love traveling to new places and have explored many local parks. I really love the snow and can’t wait to stick my face in it, especially after a fresh bath.

I’ve also developed a refined palette and have taken a liking to Sam Adams beer as you can see. I’m hopefully I might get a brother; rumor has it Snicker Doodle might be heading to my house in the near future.

I do lots of tricks, but something unique I do is the Michael Jackson moonwalk. That’s right, I moonwalk! I can send a video of that too if you’d like to see it. I have to admit, it’s pretty cool.
