Pet of the Week: Pistachio

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Pistachio, an English Cocker Spaniel who enjoys a good tooth brushing and a nice long walk every now and then.

Here is what his owner Casey had to say:

Say hello to the cutest little nut in Arlington – Pistachio! He also likes to go by Mr. P, or ‘P’ for short.

Pistachio loves to go on long walks, visits to the dog park, and learning new tricks. One could say that Pistachio is an outgoing pup, because he loves meeting new people and dogs! Any time we are out on a walk, Pistachio is the center of attention. Our family and extended family all have dogs, so Pistachio loves going to family events for all of the extra play time (and treats).

Pistachio also enjoys snuggles, giving a million kisses, having his teeth brushed, and spreading out in his parent’s bed. He’s still learning to behave around food and to not eat everything he finds on the floor, but hey! Being a puppy is hard work!

Pistachio has become so entertaining that we found we needed to share his adventures with everyone we know – feel free to follow him on Instagram at @pistachio_theenglishcocker.
