Arlington Pet of the Week: Tuco and Fig

Welcome the newest Arlington Pet of the Week duo, Tuco and Fig! These fluffy twins came from Pennsylvania, but now call Arlington home.

Tuco and Fig have a few things to say about their paw-fect life in Arlington.

Greetings from Tuco and Fig!

We came from humble beginnings from a farm in Pennsylvania. Thanks to our mom’s Tesla driving friend, we were whisked away to the city of Arlington, and are living a paw-fectly splendid life!

Life in the city was an easy transition for us twins because we have each other, and also the paw-somest parents. Our daily schedule consists of sunbathing on our balcony, wrestling with each other, and reposing wherever we want.

Also, people love coming up to us to pet us and take pictures of us. Once we got a free tote bag just for sitting on it. Why are humans ever stressed out??

Sometimes, we hang out with our best friends Tater Tot and Mister Waffles (who was a previous Pet of the Week). Dad hopes we get bigger than Tater Tot, because he says he is his “rival.” We don’t understand what that means, but we love our playdates together!

And mom made us an Instagram account @tucoandfig because she has no hobbies. Hopefully she takes a break from all the pictures of us, so we can take a nap before dinner.

Want your pet to be considered for the Arlington Pet of the Week? Email [email protected] with a 2-3 paragraph bio and at least 3-4 horizontally-oriented photos of your pet. Please don’t send vertical photos — they don’t fit in our photo gallery!
