Arlington Pet of the Week: Nola

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is a studious French Bulldog named after the great city of New Orleans.

Nola is a happy two-year-old pup who isn’t afraid to put small yard critters and other dogs in their rightful place in nature’s pecking order. Here’s what owner Mary had to say about her Frenchie.

Je m’appelle Nola. I am a 2 year old French Bulldog. I am named after New Orleans for many reasons, 1. I’m a French Bulldog, 2. My biological mom’s name is Las Vegas, keeping with the U.S. city theme, and 3. My new mommy got me around her 30th bday which she celebrated in New Orleans!

My hobbies are chasing squirrels and rabbits, one day I will catch one! I also like playing chase with the neighborhood dogs!

I often forget that I’m a small dog because I’m used to bossing around 2 bull terriers when I visit my second home Pittsburgh. I grew up with them so I really don’t know any better.

Other than that you can find me cuddling with just about any human at home and saying hi to just about every human I meet on the streets of Arlington! I am very spoiled with attention! I won’t lie, I am the apple of my mommy’s eye and I work that to my advantage 🙂 Au revoir!
