Pet of the Week: Nymeria

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Dowager Countess Nymeria MacBattleby Logiealmond MacGold. She’s a sweet Shiba Inu who lives in Shirlington. She loves to steal toys, and will leap to incredible heights to give her people kisses on the face.

Here’s what Nymeria had to say for herself.

Hi! My name is the Dowager Countess Nymeria MacBattleby Logiealmond MacGold, but most people call me, “I’m sorry what?” I am one year old little Scottish Shiba Inu lass, and I live in Shirlington with my Hudad who is awesome and my Humom who wants to turn me into a dog dancing champion… We’re still trying to talk her out of that one. 

My days are mostly spent looking out of my sweet window, where I like to nibble on Nylabones and occasionally bark at nothing, just to keep the humans on their toes. My evenings are either spent working on my mad skills at agility class with Frolick Dogs or playing with the neighborhood pups. I love when other dogs run after me, and I’ve been known to instigate a game of chase by stealing their toys (I always give them back – puppy promise!). 

Unlike a lot of Shibas, I LOVE myself some people. If there’s a person I haven’t met, I always need to make sure I’ve greeted them with a proper kiss. I’ve been known to jump three feet up in the air just to get close to their faces! Apparently this is not necessarily a good trait and the humans say they’re, “working on it,” but in the meantime if you see me in Shirlington – I just want your extra time and your *mwuah, mwuah, mwuah, mwuah* Kiss!
