Arlington Pet of the Week: Jake

Arlington’s new Pet of the Week is 3-year-old Goldendoodle Jake who recently moved from Maryland to Crystal City.

Here is what owner Nicole, had to say about how Jake’s sees his new life as an Arlingtonian:

When I’m not getting my 17-hours of sleep per day, being told how beautiful I am, or complaining about the service around here (can I get a refill on some water here, someone?), I love watching Caps games with my female owner.  Jay Beagle is my all-time favorite.  I also like taking walks through my new neighborhood (because people tell me how beautiful I am), standing on the balcony and barking “get off my lawn” at no one in particular, eating the section of newspaper that female owner’s male friend is currently reading, stealing remote controls and sponges and laundry and toys from petsmart (but it was only one time and my owner returned it and I was just borrowing it anyway ok), and choosing the most public spot available to do my business.
