Arlington Pet of the Week: Stetson

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Stetson, a two year old Bernedoodle.

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

Meet Stetson George. 2-year-old Bernedoodle, 100% Michigan farm raised, cage free and sometimes grass fed (when his tummy hurts). He used to hang his leash the last 14 dog-years in the Windy City of Chicago, and after a cross-country move, where he slept the whole time, he now calls the Clarendon neighborhood home.

The breakfast bell rings early in our home. He’s out the door at 5:30am for an early morning walk to one of the many Arlington parks. He’s a strapping young pup who loves to run, play with other 4-legged friends, and makes most anyone happy to see him or pet him. He recently discovered that sometimes stores have free treats for dog friends, and since discovering this, his whole late evening walking world has changed, to the point he sometimes protests changing streets to find his beloved free biscuits.

Last weekend he went on a new adventure to the Shirlington Dog Park and loved it! We never knew, nor did Stetson, just how great of a swimmer he really is! He has it all! His good looks, calm temperament, and a loving family to support him. He has very promising dog career ahead of him!
