Arlington Pet of the Week: Winston

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Pet of the Week is Winston, another friendly frenchie who loves discovering all the adventures Arlington has to offer a small dog.

Winston is still a puppy and, like most puppies, enjoys exploring the outside world, especially around his Clarendon neighborhood. From picking up the best sticks on the block to visiting his favorite stores, Winston just wants to have fun and make new friends.

Here’s what Winston’s parents had to say about their snuggly, snorting pet:

Winston is a three-year-old French Bulldog clown who is convinced that he is part human. You may have seen him strutting the streets of Clarendon inspecting every tree patch, sitting on the corner people-watching, or stopping in the local stores just to say “hello” — and to see if there are treats on hand! If you are one of the many to stop and say hi, you will surely be greeted with a “frenchie” kiss.

Winston loves both his canine brethren and any human bearing treats or willing to give scratches. He’s a stick enthusiast and often asks to go outside just to circle back to that perfect stick he saw on his walk. He’ll make sure everyone sees how proud he is of his prize as he takes it all the way home, often carrying them for several blocks. Once inside, he loves to “zoomie” around the apartment. Despite a bit of stubbornness when he wants to stay put, you can’t help but smile at his face.

His nightly routine includes wrestling with his dad, Kris, and snuggling with his mom, Jennifer. In the morning, he asks to be picked up in the bed so he can get in a quality 30 minute snuggle before he starts his day.

Winston is truly a one-of-a-kind dog and we look forward to all the years he’ll be snorting and snoring with us. If you see him out be sure to say hello! He’ll love you — seriously — forever!
