Arlington Pet of the Week: Dunkin

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Dunkin, a pug with a coffee-centric name.

Here’s what Dunkin’s owner, Scott, had to say:

My name is Dunkin’ and I’m named after Dunkin’ Donuts, that being a favorite coffee spot for my family.  I like seeing my name at shops all around town!

Born in July in Fauquier County, I’m glad my family brought me to Arlington.  I enjoy time with my “brother Pug” George, who’s 9.  I keep him good company and on the run around our house, and think I’ve livened him up!  We share many toys, including some given to us for the holiday season.  My favorites include a Koala bear, a turtle, a football, and, of course, a strawberry donut!  I like watching television, especially when I see other dogs and when there’s music on the screen.

We enjoyed having our picture taken with Santa, and look forward to a busy 2019!
