Adoptable Pet of the Week: Sassy Sue

Meet the adorable Sassy Sue, the newest Adoptable Pet of the Week.

This lovely girl loves exploring and is searching for someone who will love her for who she is.

Sue’s friends at Animal Welfare League of Arlington had this to say about her:

Sassy Sue’s favorite things are: Being outdoors with a stuffed kong and chew toys. She loves to explore. She can be a perfect running mate in the neighborhood.

Her special talents are: Sassy Sue knows “sit” and is working on “hand shake”. She is a good listener. Ask her to sit while waiting to put the food bowl down, she’ll wait until you say it’s okay.

Her perfect day would be: Running free in the backyard followed by a few chew toys or stuffed kong. A walk/run in the park, a few quick naps, dinner time, play time, then it is time for snuggling.

If Sassy Sue was an ice cream flavor, she would be: Rainbow Sherbet — sweet, bright and happy go lucky.

Important facts about Sassy Sue: She is house-broken, friendly with people, and gets along well with other dogs (sometimes she is too excited and we are still training her to be more calm). She is very food-motivated and can be easily trained.

*Sassy Sue has not met children/cats while in our care. AWLA team is happy to discuss these topics during your call/virtual appointment.*

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.
