This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Bruno, a young-at-heart dog whose nickname is “Wonderpup.” Here is what his owner, Shira, had to say about him:
Is this a dog, Ewok or Gremlin? The answer is (kind of) all three. Bruno is an 11-year-old Pekingese from California.
Bruno might be in his golden years, but is the epitome of “age is just a number.” Everyone who meets Bruno does not believe he is 11! He has the energy level of a much younger dog. He loves belly rubs, Brussel sprouts, bell peppers and playing his version of fetch (which is his owner throwing the ball, Bruno running to get it but never bringing it back).
As you can see, Bruno resembles an Ewok, something that is slightly unappreciated by his owner because she has never seen Star Wars. People also think he looks like a Gremlin, especially when his hair is fully grown out.
Bruno loves his mama, but forgets about her when new people walk into the room. If he feels like you haven’t adequately petted him enough, he’ll let you know by using his head to lift your hand back to the top of his head. Bruno’s nickname is the Wonderpup because he is the wonderest pup there is!
