Arlington Pet of the Week: Theo

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Pet of the Week is Theo, a friendly mixed-breed who loves treats, travel and presents.

Some of his favorite spots to walk and watch airplanes land are Glencarlyn Park and Gravelly Point. He also loves snow and is likely anxiously awaiting the day some falls in Arlington.

Here’s what Theo’s owners had to say about their energetic furry friend:

Hello Arlington! I’m Theo, which is Greek for “Gift from God.” I am a 5-year-old English Pointer/Black Labrador mix, or “Pointador” for short.

My favorite daily activities include going on long walks and sitting at the front door of my house watching “doggie TV.” After dinner, I usually take over the bed where my humans sleep and make myself comfortable. For special treats, I love going to Glencarlyn Park and to Gravelly Point where I can chase airplanes as they are landing — one of these days I might even catch one!! I even have fun vacations each year when we travel to Rehoboth Beach and Cape Cod. Snow in the winter time is also a blast, romping around and playing with sticks puts a big ol’ smile on my face.

Oh, I love getting presents. In October, we celebrate my birthday and I get special doggie cakes. At Christmastime, my stocking goes right in the middle of the mantle. It has pride of place — just as it should be!

Children also make me happy. If you ever see me on one of my daily walks, don’t be afraid to let you children say hello. They just might get a big kiss!
