Arlington Pet of the Week: Troy

Meet Arlington’s newest Pet of the Week, Troy, a 7 year old Golden Retriever who loves walks and lounging next to the pool.

Here is what Troy’s owner had to say about their life together in Arlington:

Troy is a 7-year-old, exuberant golden retriever who has spent his formative years as an enthusiastic Arlingtonian. Troy is passionate about his household maintaining a strict schedule by emulating his rooster compatriots with 6 o’clock rise and shine wake-up barks and will hit the hay after watching 30 minutes of nightly news. During the summer, he spends his days lounging poolside while sneaking sips of delicious pool water. He has been known to never turn down a spoon of peanut butter, his mother’s home cooking, a tasty sock, or an unattended dish rag.

Troy often fills his days off with DIY projects, which include digging holes underneath the fence and trimming the bills of baseball caps. His favorite activity is walking with his best friend along the beautiful Donaldson Run trail and loop where he sits patiently accepting pets and expecting compliments from all who pass. New and exciting developments in his life include supervised access to the upstairs bedrooms and spending more time with his family while they telework from home. Troy is looks forward to cheering on the Virginia Tech Hokies on Saturdays and crunching around in the colorful Virginia fall leaves. He is deeply loved by his family and brings so much joy to their lives.
