Arlington Pet of the Week: Walter

Meet Arlington’s newest Pet of the Week, Walter, a 3 year old Bernese Mountain Dog who just moved to Arlington.

Here is what Walter had to say about his new life here in Arlington:

What’s up Arlington?! My name is Walter. I recently moved to Virginia from Michigan. My humans brought me here because of their jobs. As a Bernese Mountain Dog, I really miss the colder weather back in the mitten state. When it would snow, I would dig a hole and stay outside for hours. I also really miss my grandparents and cousins back in Michigan. Otherwise, I’m very happy with our move.

Arlington is so dog friendly. I go everywhere with my humans. I love how all of the restaurants and bars allow me to sit on their patios. We live near Circa and Bracket Room in Clarendon, so you can find me at one of those places most weekends. They treat me like a king by giving lots of pets and great food. Dennis at Bracket Room is the best because he sneaks me bacon. Everyone I’ve met in Arlington is so nice. The only complaint I have is that most people ask me how much I weigh. I’m not sure why. Just so everyone knows, I am 130 lbs. of pure muscle.

Here are some other fun facts for you: When my forever family got me, I was 10 weeks old and 10 lbs. Although I am huge, I think I’m a lapdog. I just turned 3 years old. People say I’m the happiest dog they’ve ever met. I like to smile. My favorite food is bacon. My favorite thing to do is to get pets from strangers. I love the dog park in Clarendon. I’m obsessed with tiny dogs. I hate ducks. I don’t chase any other animals besides ducks. I’m a momma’s boy. I don’t like swimming. I love sunsets. I have very good manners. And my Instagram page is This.Is.Walters.World. Look me up! Also, if you ever see me out, please say hi, and make sure there aren’t any ducks around!
