Arlington Pet of the Week: Whitlow

Say hello to Arlington’s newest Pet of the Week, Whitlow. This 4-month-old Bernese Mountain puppy loves exploring. If you see Whitlow exploring around town, be sure to say hi — just make sure he sits first.

Here’s what Whitlow had to say about himself:

Hello Arlington! I’m Whitlow. Yes, named after Whitlow’s on Wilson where my mom and dad met on mug night. I’m sad I never went to Whitlow’s before it closed, but I’m still falling in love with Arlington as my new home.

I came home August 28 at 10 weeks old. I was 20 pounds back then. Everyone I meet in Arlington has been so nice to me, and they all tell me I’m going to be a big boy.

I love going to Charles Stewart Park to play with my neighborhood dog friends and watch the kids play soccer. I get very excited for my meals. My mom and dad spoil me with homemade liver treats and bites of steak. I’m a carnivore just like my papa bear.

I like to lay by the freezer after my walks to cool off. I can’t wait for winter! I’m not allowed on the couch yet, but I still try everyday. I’m a little unsure about car rides because I don’t know where I’m going. I’m excited to explore more places in Arlington and try new restaurants with my parents.
