Arlington Pet of the Week: Wally

Meet Arlington’s latest Pet of the Week, Wally, a golden retriever whose tongue is almost as long as his tail.

Here’s what Wally had to say about his life here in Arlington.

Hi, I’m Wally, a 6-year-young golden retriever who is often mistaken for a puppy! I am best friends with my 3.5-year-old human brother. I’m often compared to Ed the hyena from “The Lion King” because my tongue is almost as long as my tail, and I am good at providing comic relief. Haven’t we all run into a glass door or got stuck under the couch? Just me? OK.

I am really helpful with vacuuming up food on the floor, but I shed everywhere, so I think this is a pretty even trade if you ask me. I’m a great WFH co-worker because I sleep and/or space out for about 22 hours per day. I love a well-made Puppuccino with extra shots of whipped cream.

Lastly, I want to give a BIG bark to all the healthcare and frontline workers who are helping to vaccinate all my human friends so I can have playdates again soon!
