Arlington Pet of the Week: Brooklyn

Arlington’s newest Pet of the Week is Brooklyn, an 8 year old dog that loves making friends at the dog park and getting treats from the bakery.

Here is what Brooklyn’s owner had to say about their life here in Arlington:

This is eight year old Brooklyn and she’s the happiest pup in all of Arlington. Brooklyn lives in Columbia Forest with her mom and dad. She spends most of the weekdays being a lazy snugglebug while mom and dad are away but is full of energy and ready to play when they come back.

One of Brooklyn’s favorite activities is to spend the day running around the Shirlington dog park and making four-legged friends. After running around, mom and dad usually take Brooklyn to her favorite place in all of Arlington–Dogma dog bakery–where she gets the tastiest treats. Brooklyn’s love for food means that she always pops her head around when she sees the humans eating. She’s found that mom’s Lebanese meat croquettes (kibbeh) is a real treat!

In addition to loving food, naps, and the park, Brooklyn loves to dress up and be the most festive pup around. Take a look at some of her favorite holiday outfits–including her favorite holiday ugly sweater and Santa outfit. For Halloween this past year, Brooklyn and mom dressed up as Lucy and the Great Pumpkin from “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!” for a costume contest in Clarendon.

When mom and dad got married, Brooklyn was the Dog of Honor on their special day. She made mom and dad so proud as she zoomed down the aisle and stood by them as they all officially became a family.
