Arlington Pet of the Week: Beaufort

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Beaufort, a bulldog who is quite personable, and a little sleepy.

Here’s what his owner, Rebecca, had to say on his behalf:

My name is Beaufort! I’m a happy-go-lucky Bulldog that loves attention from everyone and anyone. My hobbies include napping, relaxing with my toy ball, and napping again. I’m always excited to meet new people especially when I can show them my toys. I recently celebrated my 5th birthday which means I’m an adult whose decided that I need a bigger bed. I’ve been sneaking into my parent’s bed at night when they are asleep, I didn’t think they’d mind but it turns out I snore too loud, so (like the gentleman I am) I wait for them to leave for work and then go back to the bed. This actually works out better for me because I can sprawl out as much as I want. I don’t think my parents know I do this, so it’s between you and me.

When I’m not sleeping I love to explore the Shirlington dog park right here in Arlington! I wander around and once I get in all my sniffs I go down to the water for a swim and by swim I mean I go in to wear I can still reach and then come back. Now that its getting colder outside I don’t “swim” as much but I wear my sweater, lay down with my ball, and dog watch the others as they play. I get pretty sad when people pass me and they don’t say hi or scratch my butt. I’m very friendly and I want to greet everyone so if you see me in the area be sure to come say hi, the butt scratch is optional but still very much appreciated!

I hope to see you around!

With all the love and sniffs in the world,
