Arlington Pet of the Week: Jovi

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Pet of the Week is Jovi, an 8 year-old lab mix who was born in New Mexico. Jovi came to Arlington with her mom and dad in 2012.

Jovi likes visiting the monuments in D.C. and chasing squirrels. Here’s what Jovi’s mom had to say about this cheese-loving dog:

Hi!  My name is Jovi and I’m an 8-year-old lab mix, currently living in Arlington Village. I was born in New Mexico, but quickly shipped to a shelter in Denver, Colorado. Luckily, there was a fresh college grad that had just moved from Arlington on a whim and thought it’d be a great idea to adopt a puppy. I stole her heart at first sight and after some paperwork and a quick check-up, I had myself a new home, best friend and mom.

A year passed and we decided it was time to leave the mountain life and head back closer to mom’s family in Arlington. To keep things interesting, we decided to make another big move six months later — this time to sunny San Diego to be with my soon to be dad. I quickly fell in love with the dog beaches, hiking trails, and year-round sunny weather. In 2012, dad finished his time in the Navy and we all moved back to Arlington as a big happy family of three.

I enjoy being back on the East Coast, especially with my retired grandparents nearby. While mom and dad are at work, they usually take me on afternoon field trips to one of my favorite spots — Roosevelt Island, Lubber Run Park or the monuments in D.C. In addition to long walks, I enjoy chasing squirrels, sleeping in the middle, riding in the car and snacking on cheese.
