Arlington Pet of the Week: Rosie

Meet Arlington’s newest Pet of the Week, Rosie, a 10 year old Golden retriever who loves to explore new places.

Here is what Rosie has to say about her life here in Arlington:

My name is Rosie, and I am a 10 year old golden retriever living in Pentagon City with my mom and cat brother, George. I was born in a little town called Joshua, Texas. When I was 5 years old, I moved to College Station, TX to assist my mom in getting her undergraduate degree. One of my favorite activities was walking around campus and getting pets and treats from stressed out students around the library. My studies have continued here in Virginia at George Mason University’s Schar School of Policy and Government on the Arlington campus. Greeting students and brightening their walk to class is one of the highlights of my day.

Overall, living in a community that is so dog friendly brings me constant joy. I love attention and food more than anything else in the world, and the people of Arlington love to spoil me! My favorite place to go is Sine in Pentagon City where they give me whipped cream for being a good girl. Additionally, I love watching the planes at Gravelly Point, walking on Mt. Vernon Trail, and accompanying mom and all of her friends to lunch. I am constantly wanting to explore new places and meet new people, and Arlington never disappoints!
