Arlington Pet of the Week: Kuechly

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Pet of the Week is Kuechly, a chocolate lab puppy who is new to Arlington but is learning the ropes quickly, exploring nearby trails and making friends with neighbors.

That’s not all the retriever is learning. Kuechly knows doing tricks means getting treats, dropping the ball means playing more fetch, and sticks can be a fun thing to munch on.

Here’s what Kuechly’s owners had to say about the happy pup:

Hi! My name is Kuechly and I’m a chocolate lab.

Yeah, I know, it’s a bit of an odd name. My dad is a huge Carolina Panthers fan, so he named me after a guy on their team. Nobody ever pronounces it correctly, but that’s okay. I’m such a happy little pup and will respond to almost anything. I just turned 3 months old and my favorite game is tug-of-war. I also love playing fetch and just learned how to drop the ball so we can keep playing! I’m learning lots of new tricks which is great because when I sit, I get lots of yummy treats!

I moved to Arlington from Alabama about a month ago and I’m loving it in the city! There are so many new friends to meet. I’ve already made some great friends at the building where I live and we love playing together on our morning and afternoon walks! My perfect weekend in Arlington is hitting the W&OD trail for a nice long walk to check out all the fall leaves and sticks lying around! I could just lay in the cool grass and chew on sticks all day long.

Life is great as a puppy in A-town!

Have you noticed a striking sculpture at Monroe Street and Wilson Boulevard? It’s the Museum of Contemporary Art Arlington’s newest installation, Make Your Mark, by Arlington artist, Adam Henry. This sculpture celebrates MoCA Arlington’s rebranding and brings the museum’s energy outdoors.

On February 11, come inside when the museum’s galleries reopen with two new exhibitions: Rebecca Rivas Rogers: Grey View and Crisis of Image.

Grey View, in the Wyatt Resident Artist Gallery, is an homage to “gray” and a snapshot of the artist’s process. Consisting of photographs, collage, and a site-specific installation, this show is an outgrowth of Rivas-Rogers’ visual investigations into places you see on your way to somewhere else.

On the main level, Crisis of Image features artists who seek equity in today’s saturated visual world by developing new methods related to the production of images.
