Arlington Pet of the Week: Trixie

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Trixie, a 4-year-old cockapoo who is quite popular around the neighborhood.

Here’s what her owner, Lydia, had to say on her behalf:

Hi! My name is Trixie and I am a 4 year old cockapoo. I live with my mommy, my daddy, my sister, and my brother.  I have lots of doggy friends in my neighborhood that I love to have playdates with!

My hobbies include taking longs walks with my family, eating ice cubes, and chasing after bunnies that live in my yard. I’m also super sneaky. Sometime I try to steal socks… but I always seem to get caught!

My all-time favorite place to be is standing on the top of the chair next to the windowsill, so I can know the moment that mommy returns from work!

If you ever see me out on a walk, don’t hesitate to say hi! I love belly rubs, giving kisses, and making new friends!
