This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Casey.
Anyhoo, here’s what Casey had to say about himself.
Hi there. My name is Casey and I want to be the Pet of the Week.
I moved to Arlington from Canada last July and have been really enjoying getting to know my new home.
I am 6 years old and was rescued by my loving owners when I lived in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada back in 2012. I was living by the ocean for a few years and loved swimming in the big waves. Since I moved to Arlington I have been walking every day in all the really cool trails that are in my new neighborhood of Bellevue Forest. I especially enjoy the walk along the Gulf Branch trail creek. The other thing I really like about Arlington is all the dog friendly restaurants and stores. When my owners go shopping or go to eat, they can take me along – and usually I get a new toy or a treat :)
I have also lived in a town called Moose Jaw (yes…. Moose Jaw) which is in Saskatchewan, Canada. Pretty flat there, so all the hills in the Arlington area are pretty fun to walk up and down. Since I moved here I have gone swimming in the ocean at Nag’s Head, North Carolina and Melbourne Beach, Florida. The water there is way warmer than back in Canada.
You may have seen me walking around the area with my leash in my mouth. I like to carry my own leash as it is way easier for my owners to walk me that way. I am extremely obedient when it comes to walking on the sidewalks too. I like to sleep, sit in the sun, chew on bones, chase a ball once in a while, and I love attention – cannot get enough of it. Truck and car rides are way too much fun as well.
So if you see me walking around town, please stop and say hello — I will even shake a paw with you…
