Say hello to Hambone, Arlington’s newest Pet of the Week! Hambone is an affectionate and grumpy fella who loves naps and treats.
Here’s what his owner had to say about him:
Hambone is a long-haired dachshund and basset hound mix.
He was surrendered to A Forever Home, a local animal rescue, at the age of 8 and at the weight of a whopping 57 lbs when his first owner passed away. Due to his old age and weight problems, he had no prospective adopters and was deemed an indefinite foster pet until he was adopted at the age of 10.
Now turning 17 in a couple months, Hambone is down to a healthy 25 lbs and lives with his owners and an adoptive sister named Casserole, a golden retriever and chow chow mix.
Hambone loves to sniff out treats, take naps in the sunroom, and howl along with ambulances or other loud noises. He has both the affectionate behavior of a hound and a grumpy personality befitting an old man. You can regularly see Hambone at New District Brewing Company in Shirlington.

Signature Theatre just released single tickets for all 33rd season productions, which highlights the organization’s long-time relationship with legendary composer Stephen Sondheim. Beginning with the musical adaptation of The Color Purple and irreverent No Place to Go, the season continues with three Sondheim musicals, the DC premieres of Off-Broadway hit Which Way to the Stage and Pulitzer Prize finalist Selling Kabul, the Tony Award®-winning rock musical Passing Strange, and return of Signature’s cabaret series honoring legendary artists.
“Last November, the world lost an icon. The death of Stephen Sondheim was a blow to everyone in the theater community. Signature Theatre would not be the same without Sondheim — he IS Signature’s ‘signature.’ This season, we are honoring the legend with productions of Into the Woods, Pacific Overtures and Sweeney Todd dedicated to his memory. These shows represent the diversity and range of Sondheim,” said Signature’s Artistic Director Matthew Gardiner about the new season.
