Arlington Pet of the Week: Bosley

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Bosley, a seven-month-old Goldendoodle who melts hearts and destroys beds.

Upon recently discovering a new thing called a “beach,” Bosley was smitten. As much as he loves Clarendon, Bosley craves more trips to the shore.

Here’s what Bosley’s beach chauffeur, Liz, had to say about him.

Hello! My name is Bosley, or Bosley Bear as my mom likes to call me, and I am a seven month old Goldendoodle. I was adopted from Staunton, Virginia at nine weeks and moved to Arlington in January. You have probably seen me walking around Clarendon, desperately trying to pull my mom and dad to meet every single person we walk by. Sometimes I get the hiccups because I’m so excited to meet everyone.

I may be small now, but I have a big personality and endless energy! I LOVE going to the Clarendon Dog Park and playing with my fellow Arlington doggies. Every time we leave our apartment and start walking in that direction I try my hardest to get us there faster. I’ve taken a couple trips to the beach already and have decided the beach life is for me! I’d also settle for splashing around in the creek behind my grandparent’s house.

I may have chewed up a couple beds and stolen a few dinners from my parents but they still love me! Follow me on Instagram at Bosley_the_dood to see more pictures of my adventures.
