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,

Have you noticed a striking sculpture at Monroe Street and Wilson Boulevard? It’s the Museum of Contemporary Art Arlington’s newest installation, Make Your Mark, by Arlington artist, Adam Henry. This sculpture celebrates MoCA Arlington’s rebranding and brings the museum’s energy outdoors.

On February 11, come inside when the museum’s galleries reopen with two new exhibitions: Rebecca Rivas Rogers: Grey View and Crisis of Image.

Grey View, in the Wyatt Resident Artist Gallery, is an homage to “gray” and a snapshot of the artist’s process. Consisting of photographs, collage, and a site-specific installation, this show is an outgrowth of Rivas-Rogers’ visual investigations into places you see on your way to somewhere else.

On the main level, Crisis of Image features artists who seek equity in today’s saturated visual world by developing new methods related to the production of images.
