Arlington Pet of the Week: Mickey and Bean

Meet Mickey and Bean, Arlington’s latest Pet of the Week duo. Mickey is a Miniature Schnauzer, and Bean is a Dachshund-Yorkie (aka Dorkie).

Here’s what Micky had to say about his and his sister’s life in Arlington:

What’s up, Arlington? My name is Mickey, and this is my sister, Bean. We are both from Georgia and moved to Arlington last summer for mom and dad’s jobs. We love playing with toys, getting treats and taking walks around the neighborhood in Clarendon!

Bean and I are definitely best friends, but personality-wise we are complete opposites. Bean loves to meet new people and dogs and is a sweet Southern peach. I, on the other hand, can be best described as a Sour Patch Kid — sometimes I’m sour, but then I’m sweet. I have really liked this social distancing thing over the past year and prefer to have my space. In new social situations, I tend to scream at new people and dogs I meet because I am awkward, but, hey, who isn’t? Once I get to know you, I’ll be your best friend, especially if you have treats.

Please feel free to say hello to sweet Bean anytime, she will love it! As for me, if you think you can handle my Schnauzer-tude, my parents will make sure that we have a calm introduction.

See ya around!

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!

We are also looking for local pets who look like their owners or like celebrities. Email us photos of your pet and their doppelgänger, explaining the resemblance and whether it has been noticed in your neighborhood.
