This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Willow, a 2-year-old Yorkshire terrier.
Here is what she had to say about her life so far:
Hello! I’m Willow and I’m 2 years old. Some people say I look like an Ewok, but I’m actually a Yorkshire Terrier. Seeing as my mom is a huge Disney fan, she named me after Grandmother Willow from Pocahontas.
In my spare time I like to play with all my toys (as you can see in my picture) and lay down with my parents. My daily struggle is debating if I love playing with my rope or ball more.
I also enjoy dressing up. My favorite outfit of choice is my white lifeguard sweatshirt from Bethany Beach.
When people meet me they are surprised because I am a quiet Yorkie. I was taught as a puppy not to yap. But if we are playing with toys or you come knocking at my door, then you might hear a little bark or growl!
When I grow up, I hope to be a famous soccer player. My Aunt Bee taught me everything I know. In one of my pictures, I am practicing my soccer pose for when I become famous.
I hope to meet you around Arlington!
