Arlington Pet of the Week: Miso

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Miso, a 7-month-old Shiba Inu puppy, who loves going to the dog park.

Miso is new to Arlington but loves meeting people and dogs. He also likes eating, sleeping and watching TV. Here’s what Miso had to say about himself:

Hello! My name is Miso, which is pronounced like the soup that you find in restaurants. I am a Shiba Inu who was born on Jan. 15, 2015. My mom and dad bought me from a pet store in Bethesda, Maryland when I was 2 months old. I have been living in Arlington since then and have enjoyed meeting so many people and dogs! I have also become quite the ladies’ man since living here.

Some of my favorite things include eating, sleeping and watching TV. I do occasionally love going to the dog park when it’s not too hot out. My favorite part of the dog park is playing with my friends and rolling in the sand. I mostly roll in the sand because I know my mom will give me a refreshing bath when I get home. When I am not at the dog park you can find me playing with my many toys at home or playing fetch with Dad. I am in the process of losing my teeth so my parents have bought me lots of bones which I have found is better to chew on than the furniture.

After a long day of dog walks, chewing and playing I will end the evening in my bed curled up with my favorite stuffed animal.
