Arlington Pet of the Week: Jasmine

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Jasmine, who’s a 9-year-old pug.

Here’s what Jasmine’s owner, Jessica, had to say about her.

Hi, my name is Jasmine the Pug (look for my hashtag on Instagram #jasminethepug) and I am 9 years. My birthday is August 1st and I will be the BIG 1-0. My mom took me in when I was 6 months old from a family that could no longer keep me. Mom and I both moved to the DC area 8 years ago and have been living in Arlington for the past 4 years.

Just over a year ago, my mom decided to take in my new brother, Wilson. He is WILD! I don’t know what she was thinking because I’m old and he exhausts me, but I love him nonetheless. I am actually his great aunt or something (we have the same bloodline), but I only claim him occasionally.

Things I enjoy include: eating (I would eat ALL the time if she’d let me), sunbathing, boat riding, laying on the couch, cuddling in my cuddlebed, and just being close to my mom. Occasionally mom will take us to the wineries out in Virginia and that’s always fun. Barrel Oak is my favorite! Mom also volunteers with Homeward Trails Animal Rescue and will sometimes bring home another dog for the weekend. It’s okay as long as it keeps my brother, Wilson, entertained and lets me rest.
