Arlington Pet of the Week: Darla

Arlington’s newest Pet of the Week is Darla, a four year old lab.

Here is what Darla’s owner has to say about their life in Arlington:

Darla is a four year old yellow lab and social butterfly. She insists on greeting any person or animal she passes with a wagging tail and kisses. Her favorite pastimes include napping (always on furniture and snoring), eating (literally anything), swimming, and visiting her friends at the dog park. She loves belly rubs and will adamantly request them by tapping you with her paw.

Darla is named after the character from Little Rascals, and is just as much of a charmer. As of late, Darla has a new baby brother who of course became her instant best friend. She got to visit her favorite place this summer (the Outer Banks) where she plays in the ocean and digs in the sand. She’s excited for fall to arrive which means jumping in leaf piles and snuggles while watching football.
