Say hi to Lily and Daisy, Arlington’s latest Pet of the Week duo. These two fashionable ladies are Pugs who were rescued from the Great Salt Lake and now call Arlington their home.
Here’s what their owner had to say about the sisters:
These sisters have traded their hiking boots for bespoke couture as they enjoy a packed social calendar filled with brunches with “the girls” at various Arlington eateries, play dates at the Pug Meet Up, goat yoga and shopping trips to Dogma Pet Bakery.
A little shy with strangers, Lily needs some time before she jumps in your lap to give some kisses. Daisy has never met a stranger and will eagerly dance around you and offer huge licks from her tongue.
After a busy day sipping pawseccos and browsing Etsy, Lily likes to enjoy a “cigar” (her Petstages Deerhorn bone) with her evening watermelon. Daisy can be found cuddling her elephant stuffy and loves nothing more than curling up in a lap to snooze.
Welcome to these darling western ladies!

“Probing the highly imaginative, inspired mind of Teresa Oaxaca is not altogether unlike having a present-day conversation with an Old Master,” says Nashville Arts Magazine.
Here is an unusual opportunity to learn from this incredibly talented and accessible artist, at Art House 7’s two-day oil painting workshop in October. Teresa will give 2 portrait painting demonstrations for 3 hours each morning. Students will then be painting from a clothed live model. Teresa will offer individual critiques that focus on materials, techniques, process and artistic vision. You’ll get jazzed up about painting and become more confident about your abilities.
Art House 7, Two-Day Oil Painting Workshop with Teresa Oaxaca. Saturday, October 22 and Sunday, October 23, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. EDT $250.

Validating one’s emotions has the power to heal, transform, and empower. What Is Validation? Every human being has feelings. We all have emotions that change over time, sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly. The question isn’t whether we feel; it’s how we handle feelings once they arise.
Building strategies to understand emotions is essential to positive mental health, and validation is one effective skill to practice.
Emotional validation is the process of understanding, embracing, and actively listening to another person’s feelings (or your own).
Understanding someone’s emotions doesn’t necessarily mean you approve of how they are feeling or reacting to something. You can be supportive in acknowledging and validating an emotional experience without agreeing or diminishing it. Validation is a skill to learn and improve over time. It may take practice, but the effort is most certainly worth it. Emotional validation has the power to enhance interpersonal communication and foster strong relationships.
