Arlington Pet of the Week: Lapis and Opal

(Updated at 7:15 p.m.) This week two puppies are pet of the week: Lapis and Opal.

Here’s more about the four-legged sisters from their owner Jeanne:

They are [Shih] Ztu sisters adopted last summer from dear friends in Tennessee.  Their Momma was pure white and their Poppa was all black – can you guess who the take after?

They love long walks, belly rubs, car rides, playing with toys and each other.  As you can see from their pics they had really long hair and are loving the new look.  What girl does not like going to the salon?

My Dad and I love to spoil these girls with affection and they spoil us right back.  My Dad is known to say, “Am I to be bathed or to be drowned?” when the girls start licking his face.
