Arlington Pet of the Week: Hamilton

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Hamilton, a 4-month-old Vizsla.

Here is what he had to say about his life so far:

My name is Hamilton and I am a 4-month-old Vizsla. My Dad likes to call me Hammy, Hamsandwich, Hamdawg, Hamhawk, or Hamster.

I was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania but I am not a Steelers fan. I am a fan of all D.C. sports teams, especially the Washington Redskins and Capitals because I can easily “Rock the Red.”

My favorite activities include playing outside, sticking my nose where it doesn’t belong and watching my dad eat dinner. With my free time I can be found at the Shirlington Dog Park or on my favorite couch licking the bottoms of my paws because they smell like Frito Lay chips.

I live an active lifestyle so I frequently go out to various parks to avoid the pupperazzi. I care a lot about animal rights, human rights, and the planet as a whole. To protect the earth from global warming I have taught my Dad to pick up after me.

If you ever see me, please say hi. I would love to meet you!
