Adoptable Pet of the Week: Benedict and Bertram

Meet Benedict and Bertram, the latest Adoptable Pet of the Week duo! These two friends are a bonded pair looking for a forever home together.

Their friends at Animal Welfare League of Arlington, had this to say:

Meet Benedict and Bertram!

Admittedly, it is difficult to tell these two apart; same size, same age, same coloring! But when it comes to personality, you’ll quickly see Benny is the more curious of the pair, especially when it comes to questioning why you have stopped petting him. He’s the first to sniff out any changes to his space, including any new humans. His favorite thing is to snuggle up next to Bernie (Bertram) and spend the afternoon dozing off.

Bernie likes to sit back and let Benny do all the hard work of exploring anything new in the environment. If something/someone is deemed to be interesting enough, he quickly joins to see what all the fuss is about. Much of the time Bertram can be found content in a loaf, just happy he gets to hang with his bestie all day, everyday.

AWLA expanded their “Empty the Shelters” event through this weekend (July 22-24) as its kennel capacity has reached a “critical” level. Small animal adoption fees are free during the event.

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.
