Arlington Pet of the Week: Boomer

OK, Boomer… we see you! Boomer, an almost 1-year-old black lab (her birthday is July 20!), is our latest Pet of the Week. She’s quite vocal and isn’t afraid to share her opinions.

Here’s what Boomer’s mom had to say about her:

Meet Boomer. She’s an almost 1-year-old black lab, who, like her mom, was born in Iowa before making the move to the DMV.

Boomer is a true Labrador retriever. People and fetch are her two loves — probably because she needs people in order to play fetch. Boomer is also very opinionated and isn’t afraid to let you know what she’s thinking. She’s happy to share her thoughts if she hears something scary, if she’s really tired or if she isn’t ready to go to sleep. She is quite the conversationalist!

One of the best things about Boomer, though, is her love for little kids. For as active and rambunctious as she is with grown-ups (she’s working on her manners!), she is extra tender around children and knows to lay down and let them come to her, which is one of the sweetest things you’ve ever seen.

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.
