Arlington Pet of the Week: Moon (aka Mooney)

This week’s Pet of the Week is Moon, a friendly boy who moved to Arlington back in June.

Here’s what Moon had to say about his life here:

Hi everyone! My name is Moon, but you can call me Mooney. My pawrents couldn’t go on their honeymoon to Australia this summer, so they rescued me instead! I was in North Carolina for the first two years of my life, but as of June 2020 I am officially an Arlingtonian. Boy do I love it here!

Some of my favorite things to do in Arlington is to sniff every single bush I encounter and say hi to every single dog I meet. I’ve never met a dog I didn’t like! If you see me crouched down when you and your dog are walking by, it’s because I want so badly to say hi, but I don’t want to seem too “in your face.” My mom said that’s bad manners.

My absolute favorite places to go are the vet and Courthaus Social. When my pawrents tell me that we’re going to the vet, I cannot contain my excitement! Clarendon Animal Care has the nicest people ever! They always give me treats and give me so much attention. I also love getting attention when I’m at Courthaus Social. What a fun place! The people who work there are sooo friendly, my humans’ food always smells delicious, and I can almost always make new pup friends somewhere on the patio!

I’m so lucky I’m an Arlington dog now. I hope to meet you soon!

Have you noticed a striking sculpture at Monroe Street and Wilson Boulevard? It’s the Museum of Contemporary Art Arlington’s newest installation, Make Your Mark, by Arlington artist, Adam Henry. This sculpture celebrates MoCA Arlington’s rebranding and brings the museum’s energy outdoors.

On February 11, come inside when the museum’s galleries reopen with two new exhibitions: Rebecca Rivas Rogers: Grey View and Crisis of Image.

Grey View, in the Wyatt Resident Artist Gallery, is an homage to “gray” and a snapshot of the artist’s process. Consisting of photographs, collage, and a site-specific installation, this show is an outgrowth of Rivas-Rogers’ visual investigations into places you see on your way to somewhere else.

On the main level, Crisis of Image features artists who seek equity in today’s saturated visual world by developing new methods related to the production of images.
