This week’s Pet of the Week is Beau, a seven-year-old mixed breed who first lived in Arlington as a stray. Now, he’s in a loving home where he likes to relax and cuddle with his owner.
Exercise might not be Beau’s favorite thing, but he enjoys exploring the streets of his neighborhood and making friends with dogs and other living creatures he meets.
Here’s what Beau’s mom had to say about the smart, curious dog:
Beau is a seven-year-old golden retriever/spaniel mix that was rescued as stray in Arlington. He is very laid back and enjoys most of his day relaxing on the bed or couch. Beau isn’t aware of his size and will find a comfy spot to lay on his owner’s lap.
After awaking from long naps, Beau enjoys playing with his treat-dispensing ball or a peanut butter filled Kong. If a toy is not readily available, Beau will gladly substitute his owner’s socks for a chew toy.
Beau can be bribed to go on walks with treats and instead of briskly walking, he likes to sniff the ground and find leftover food before his owner notices. Once he sees another dog on the street, he refuses to move until he gets to say hello by sniffing them for 10 minutes. He gets along with any living creature but is especially fascinated by squirrels and bunnies.
Once Beau notices his owner grab her keys, he knows that its time for a ride in the car. He loves car rides and sticking his head out the window. His favorite place to visit is his grandparents’ because they spoil him with extra treats and Beau gets to visit the three dogs who live there.

Synetic Theater Camps are a wildly fun, highly accessible choice for young people who love moving, playing games, and making memories. Registration is open now for Summer Camps (sessions June 20-August 25) and there are even a few spots left for Spring Break camp, April 3-7.
Located in National Landing, these performance-based camps are designed for students of all ages – no theater or performance experience required.
Led by professional teaching artists, campers learn acting, movement, and technical theater skills through the lens of Physical Theater. Physical Theater incorporates acting, movement, dance, mime, and acrobatics. If you’ve seen a Cirque du Soleil performance, you’ll find many similarities.
Most first-time campers are new to the performing arts, and teaching artists are well-versed in engaging students at all levels. Parents and campers report that one of the best parts of Synetic is the community, with many families returning year after year because they feel a strong sense of belonging.
