Arlington Pet of the Week: Lucy

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Lucy, a 2-year-old Boxer.

Here is what her owner Lacey had to say:

Ms. Lucy is a super playful, affectionate, wiggle-butt 2-year-old Boxer. She was born in the great outdoors of Shenandoah Valley and now sleeps inside on a king-sized bed in Arlington. She still enjoys the outdoors, but also loves chasing squirrels, eating cookies, and peanut butter-filled Kong.

Lucy has a very expressive personality to say the least. She loves giving hugs and kisses, and can be quite emotional at times. If you are talking too loud or sitting in Lucy’s favorite spot on the sofa, she’ll look at you and let out a loud sigh.

An only child, Lucy also likes to be the center of attention and will try anything for acknowledgement–howling and whining, nudging you with her nose, or a slapping you on the wrist with her paw. In her teen years Lucy does not like to be left behind and has a serious case of FOMO.

As part of a working-class dog family, Lucy works patiently alongside her momma by day and leads a very active lifestyle by night. She especially enjoys walking her parents around the neighborhood and socializing at Towers Doggie Park.

On the weekdays, Lucy prefers later morning office hours and on weekends she likes to catch up on her beauty rest–don’t expect Lucy to wake up any earlier than 11am. Please say hello next time you see Lucy and be prepared for plenty of hugs and kisses!
