Arlington Pet of the Week: Mulligan

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Pet of the Week is Mulligan, a maltese poodle who is happy to be the result of someone’s second chance at picking out the right birthday present.

Mulligan who loves to play games and meet friendly neighbors in Arlington. Here’s what Mulligan’s owner had to say about the friendly pup:

Hi, my name is Mulligan. I am a 8-year-old maltese poodle.

My name has a double meaning. Yes, my mommy is a golfer, but I have also been told my daddy got mommy earrings one year for her birthday even after she left hints of wanting a dog. Daddy decided to return the earrings and took mommy the next day to pick me out. I was a do over gift and I’m so glad daddy returned those earrings.

I may be small, but I have a big personality. I love playing fetch, especially with tennis balls. I have a younger sister Bailey and two baby brothers. Bailey is my best friend. She may be younger and have 30 pounds on me, but don’t worry, I show her who is boss every day!

I love people, so living in Arlington allows me lots of playtime. The neighbors come by the fence every day to give me a rub. If you ever see me please stop and say hi!

Love, Mully
