Arlington Pet of the Week: Dixie

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Dixie, a retired therapy and crisis comfort dog.

Here is what she had to say about her life:

My name is Dixie and I am a small Goldendoodle. Yes, I look like a lion. Or Beyoncé. Before I retired, I was a therapy dog and a crisis comfort dog for eight years. I helped people cope, often during the most stressful times in their lives.

Now I spend my time deciding if it will be a dog day or a cat day. On my cat days, I boss my Mom around, telling her exactly where I want to go on my walks. She says I am a Diva.

On my dog days, I go where she wants me to go. My favorite places are Petco Unleashed and Starbucks.

Please stop and say hello if you see me on the streets. I am friendly and my Mom always has dog treats with her.

Want your pet to be considered for the Arlington Pet of the Week? Email [email protected] with a 2-3 paragraph bio and at least 3-4 horizontally-oriented photos of your pet. Please don’t send vertical photos, they don’t fit in our photo galleries!

Each week’s winner receives a sample of dog or cat treats from our sponsor, Becky’s Pet Care, along with $100 in Becky’s Bucks. Becky’s Pet Care is the winner of six consecutive Angie’s List Super Service Awards, the National Association of Professional Pet Sitters’ 2013 Business of the Year and a proud supporter of the Arlington County Pawsitively Prepared Campaign.

Becky’s Pet Care provides professional dog walking and pet sitting in Arlington and all of Northern Virginia, as well as PetPrep training courses for Pet Care, CPR and emergency preparedness.
