Arlington Pet of the Week: Jettie

Arlington’s newest Pet of the Week is Jettie, a black lab mix who enjoys napping and playing with other dogs in the neighborhood.

Here is what Jettie had to say about her life here in Arlington:

Hello! I am Jettie, rescued from a beach in a place the humans call Puerto Rico. After a very brief time at customs (foster family), my forever humans found me just in time to keep them company while getting stuck at home!

In my role as pandemic support puppy, I have introduced my humans to a lot of other friendly humans and fellow dog friends in the neighborhood, all whom enjoy my signature white sock (paw) and affectionate kisses. When I’m not playing with my friends I like naps, beef liver treats, squirrels, sun tanning, and watching all the things from the window. Occasionally I unleash Jettie the Yeti (monster) to show my humans my enthusiasm but I do not think they have come to fully appreciate my creative energy that I have tried applying to the ends of their rugs, socks, and plants.

The humans say I am a black lab mix, maybe a borador. All I know is that none of it concerns play or food so not interesting. If I see you out and about, don’t be fooled by the bows that I got, I’m still, I’m still Jettie from the block.

Want your pet to be considered for the Arlington Pet of the Week? Email [email protected] with a 2-3 paragraph bio and at least 3-4 horizontally-oriented photos of your pet. Please don’t send vertical photos, they don’t fit in our photo galleries!

Signature Theatre just released single tickets for all 33rd season productions, which highlights the organization’s long-time relationship with legendary composer Stephen Sondheim. Beginning with the musical adaptation of The Color Purple and irreverent No Place to Go, the season continues with three Sondheim musicals, the DC premieres of Off-Broadway hit Which Way to the Stage and Pulitzer Prize finalist Selling Kabul, the Tony Award®-winning rock musical Passing Strange, and return of Signature’s cabaret series honoring legendary artists.

“Last November, the world lost an icon. The death of Stephen Sondheim was a blow to everyone in the theater community. Signature Theatre would not be the same without Sondheim — he IS Signature’s ‘signature.’ This season, we are honoring the legend with productions of Into the Woods, Pacific Overtures and Sweeney Todd dedicated to his memory. These shows represent the diversity and range of Sondheim,” said Signature’s Artistic Director Matthew Gardiner about the new season.
