Arlington Pet of the Week: Ranger

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Ranger, whose full name is Park Ranger Jackson.

Here’s what Ranger’s owner, Katie, had to say about this adventurous pup:

Hi! My name is Park Ranger Jackson (or “Ranger” as my mom likes to call me). I’m a 12-week old Aussie puppy who just recently moved from Asheville, NC to Arlington, VA and who loves to be outside. Even though I’ve only been living here for a few weeks, I already love it — my new neighbors are great! I’ve met so many new people in the area, including a really cool veterinarian who gave me my awesome blue bandana and lots of yummy treats! When I take walks with my mom, everyone I meet stops and stares at my eyes. I think they look kinda silly, what with one being blue and the other being brown, but my mom tells me I’m adorable!

When I’m not busy chasing the neighborhood bunnies and squirrels, I like to go hiking! I’ve already gone to Great Falls Park and have walked through a lot of the area parks! Who knew Arlington would have such great trails?! This coming weekend we are going to check out Theodore Roosevelt Island and might even go kayaking in Georgetown — I just love playing outside! If you want to follow more of my adventures (including an upcoming tour of the US National Parks) be sure to look up my hashtag #ParkRangerJackson on Instagram!
