Arlington Pet of the Week: Lincoln

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Lincoln, a Clarendon resident who is not a picky eater.

Here’s what Lincoln’s owner, Colleen, had to say about him.

Hi everyone! Meet Lincoln — he is a 10 lb shih tzu/bichon mix, and he’s almost two years old. He lives with his parents, Frank and Colleen, in Clarendon, VA. He is always smiling, and with his crooked teeth and underbite, he has everyone right where I want them… giving him all of the treats!

He likes to think of himself as a food connoisseur. He is obviously very focused on protein: shredded chicken, steak, hard boiled eggs, and cheese. He also enjoys watermelon, peanut butter, cucumber slices, and baby carrots. Although, if given the opportunity, he would definitely eat some tissues or pieces of mail, so I guess he’s not too picky.

His hobbies include eating, sleeping on his dad’s pillow, following his mom’s every move, visiting his friends at Orangetheory Fitness Clarendon, going for walks outside, and playing with all of his toys. In his spare time, he likes to go around his apartment and steal as many socks as he can. Clean or dirty, large or small, he loves them all! If you ever want to know how he’s feeling just look at his wagging tail — it’s his biggest tell — it’s almost always up high, and it wags faster as he gets excited. Attention is his favorite and he is a great cuddler. He also LOVES meeting new people, so come say hi if you see him walking around the neighborhood, or follow along with his daily adventures on Instagram @WhatsLincolnThinkin!
