Arlington Pet of the Week: Daisy & Henry

Arlington’s newest Pet of the Week is duo Daisy and Henry, 4-year-old Shar-Pei pups who love schmoozing with their Clarendon neighbors.

Here’s what Daisy and Henry had to say about their life in Arlington:

Hi Arlington! We’re Daisy and Henry, two Shar-Pei pups. We are both 4 years old and were born in Long Island but have lived with our parents in Courthouse since we were puppies.

We absolutely love everything about living in Arlington — long walks through Clarendon and saying hi to everyone, getting treats at Lululemon, hitting up Loyal Companion for our weekly cookie and dining out at Rhodeside Grill. We’ve also been lucky enough to travel around the East Coast, seeing Montreal, New York, Asheville, Charleston and even Florida. We hope to one day make it out to the West Coast. That said, we’re happy to stay home right now and think it is absolutely awesome that both of our parents don’t go to that thing called “work” anymore. That means more attention and walkies for us.

We’re also honored to be “ambassadors” of the Shar-Pei breed. When we are walking around town, we always get a lot of questions about what kind of dogs we are and what our personalities are like. Although Shar-Pei have a reputation for being standoffish or guarded, we are quite the opposite — we love meeting people and socializing. Daisy especially loves giving kisses, so if you ever see us around town, make sure to stop and say hi!
