Arlington Pet of the Week: Kobe Washington

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Kobe Washington, a young boxer-labrador mix living in Rosslyn.

Here’s what owner, Crystal, had to say on Kobe’s behalf:

Hello Arlington! My name is Kobe Washington. I am a 10 week old Boxador Mix who resides in Rosslyn as of a week ago. I have a little story of how I was brought from Corinth, Mississippi to Northern Virginia!

I was found in Corinth, Mississippi by very nice people from Wolf Trap Animal Rescue. They found me along with 3 other dogs and 35 puppies (a bit of a crowded situation). I was taken from Mississippi  and brought to McLean,Virginia to find my new family! My Dad (before he was my Dad) came into PetSmart in Tyson’s Corner on December 8th, and couldn’t take his eyes off me! He knew I would be a perfect Christmas present for my now Mommy. He adopted me the Saturday before Christmas! He put me in a Santa suit and surprised my new Mommy with me in hand! My new Mommy smothered me in hugs and kisses, and the rest was history!

If you see me around town on my walks (that I’m not liking so much at the moment), please feel free to stop and say hi! I love meeting new people and dogs, I like to play, cuddle, eat and sleep!  I rather stop and say hi to people than walk!

Arlington Pet of the Week: Henri

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Henri, a French bulldog who enjoys a good snuggle.

Here’s what his owner, Liz, had to say on his behalf:

Hello! My name is Henri and I’m a French Bulldog living in Arlington! I just turned three in April. I’m not too into physical activity, more so into snuggling on the sofa with my momma! I love sitting in my backyard in all the sunny spots, chasing squirrels, and short walks (very short walks). My all time favorite activity, however, is eating. There is not a food I don’t like! I love all snacks, treats, and table scraps. My mom calls me a champion beggar.

Arlington Pet of the Week: Otis

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Otis, a pug in Clarendon who isn’t particularly fond of other dogs but does love a good swim.

Here’s what his owner, Melissa, had to say:

Otis is a sweet, stately, seven-year-old pug gentleman rescued from Hagerstown, Md. He and his little pug sister, Tater Tots, live in Clarendon and are frequent visitors to the James Hunter Dog Park.

Otis prefers to tinkle on every wall, tree, and ParkMobile pay station under the sun rather than socialize with other dogs at the park, but always enjoys friendly scritches and “AWWW!”s from gaggles of Clarendonites who catch him and his sister out on their nightly walk on the town.

Otis, unlike most snorting, potato-shaped dogs, LOVES to swim! He bounds around in creeks, streams, rivers, and the occasional large brown dog park puddle. Otis has one favorite toy: a small squeaky tennis ball (as normal sized tennis balls are too big for his miniature maw) and loves to snuggle with his mama. Catch the continued adventures of Otis and Tater Tots on their instagram @cannedstarfish and see you at the park!

Arlington Pet of the Week: General Georgie Patton

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is General Georgie Patton, a golden retriever who shares a name with a World War II-era general.

This what her owner, Erin, had to say:

Named for General George Patton, 4 year old golden retriever Georgie Patton — or General Georgie — loves everything, except for the neighborhood cats. Her favorite things to do include napping under her mom’s bed, patrolling the backyard for cats and squirrels, playing fetch with the dirtiest tennis ball in the yard, swimming in the creek and fountain at Marymount University, and smiling. Georgie has never met a human, dog, or food she hasn’t liked.

When she isn’t protecting her backyard or receiving pets from everyone, she is learning sign language (she knows the sign for sit!)! She loves to say hi to everyone, so much that her humans often have to ask passerby if she can say hi to them. Georgie loves her dog-friendly community and is honored to be ARLnow’s Pet of the Week! Keep up with Georgie on her Instagram, @General.Georgie

Thanks!

Arlington Pet of the Week: Milly

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Milly, a cat who loves a good treat and a good snuggle.

Here’s what her owner, Gina, had to say:

Milly came from a local animal shelter last year where she was promptly diagnosed with terminal mammary cancer at age 6. Her parents were looking for a hospice cat and knew they needed to meet her. It was love at first sight, but, to be fair, Milly absolutely loves everyone she meets right away. No loyalty with this girl, she’ll snuggle the vet as she’s getting shots and complete strangers alike.

Maybe her affectionate nature earned her a lot of human treats as a stray because Milly loves a decadent snack; pizza crust, Chinese food (fried rice!), avocado, and all baked goods. She keeps her trim figure by full speed sprinting around her apartment and playing like a kitten – including knocking over her toy bucket on a weekly basis to display her favorites throughout the apartment. After a long day she loves to curl up on the couch or cozy up under the covers. Though her time is limited, Milly is spending it doted on and adored in Arlington!

Arlington Pet of the Week: Dunkin

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Dunkin, a pug with a coffee-centric name.

Here’s what Dunkin’s owner, Scott, had to say:

My name is Dunkin’ and I’m named after Dunkin’ Donuts, that being a favorite coffee spot for my family.  I like seeing my name at shops all around town!

Born in July in Fauquier County, I’m glad my family brought me to Arlington.  I enjoy time with my “brother Pug” George, who’s 9.  I keep him good company and on the run around our house, and think I’ve livened him up!  We share many toys, including some given to us for the holiday season.  My favorites include a Koala bear, a turtle, a football, and, of course, a strawberry donut!  I like watching television, especially when I see other dogs and when there’s music on the screen.

We enjoyed having our picture taken with Santa, and look forward to a busy 2019!

Arlington Pet of the Week: Brandy

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Brandy, a maltipoo puppy who enjoys attacking household paper products.

Here’s what her owner, Abbey, had to say:

Brandy is a 7-month-old Maltipoo (Maltese/Poodle mix!). Brandy’s favorite things are sleeping, digging, and stealing clothes from the hamper. She has perfected sitting and laying down on command and she loves playing with puzzle toys and attacking the toilet paper roll.

During the day, she likes to sit on the windowsill, staring at construction workers like she’s a cat. At night, Brandy protects our home by growling at her reflection in the window.

Brandy loves to eat frozen baby carrots and peanut butter. You can see Brandy sprinting and hopping like a bunny on her leash around Ballston. She thinks every person she meets is her new best friend, so please say hello!

Arlington Pet of the Week: Beaufort

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Beaufort, a bulldog who is quite personable, and a little sleepy.

Here’s what his owner, Rebecca, had to say on his behalf:

My name is Beaufort! I’m a happy-go-lucky Bulldog that loves attention from everyone and anyone. My hobbies include napping, relaxing with my toy ball, and napping again. I’m always excited to meet new people especially when I can show them my toys. I recently celebrated my 5th birthday which means I’m an adult whose decided that I need a bigger bed. I’ve been sneaking into my parent’s bed at night when they are asleep, I didn’t think they’d mind but it turns out I snore too loud, so (like the gentleman I am) I wait for them to leave for work and then go back to the bed. This actually works out better for me because I can sprawl out as much as I want. I don’t think my parents know I do this, so it’s between you and me.

When I’m not sleeping I love to explore the Shirlington dog park right here in Arlington! I wander around and once I get in all my sniffs I go down to the water for a swim and by swim I mean I go in to wear I can still reach and then come back. Now that its getting colder outside I don’t “swim” as much but I wear my sweater, lay down with my ball, and dog watch the others as they play. I get pretty sad when people pass me and they don’t say hi or scratch my butt. I’m very friendly and I want to greet everyone so if you see me in the area be sure to come say hi, the butt scratch is optional but still very much appreciated!

I hope to see you around!

With all the love and sniffs in the world,

Beaufort

Arlington Pet of the Week: Emi

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Emi, a native Hawaiian cat who still enjoys celebrating the Christmas season.

Here’s what her owner, Chelsea, had to say on her behalf:

Aloha, I’m Emi! I’m new to the Arlington area hailing from Oahu, HI. My moms adopted me straight off the streets of Kailua and I’ve been living it up ever since.

In my free time I enjoy surfing, napping, splooting, meowing, and head scratches. My grandma makes me bandanas and cushions to lounge on but I’m a diva and am too good for them.  I love helping my moms pick new craft beers to try and have even been featured on @CatsOnTap — so I’m a pretty big deal. On Saturdays you can catch me cheering on my Ole Miss Rebels — Hotty Toddy! And on Sundays I love watching the Redskins play! I’m loving the cool weather but really miss the sand between my claws and the trade winds through my fur.

Last holiday season I was lucky enough to get my picture with Santa and Mrs. Paws and even though I’ve never seen snow, my moms say it’s really awesome and I can’t wait to get my peets in it.  Meow-halo for reading and if you’re biking/walking the W&OD trail, look me up, I’m the torti watching the world go by from my three-tier tower.

Arlington Pet of the Week: Maggie

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Maggie, a deaf English Springer Spaniel living in Ballston.

Here’s what her owner, Blake, had to say:

Maggie is a 5-month old English Springer Spaniel. We welcomed her into our lives when we adopted her from a North Carolina rescue agency. Maggie is completely deaf. She had been bred as part of a litter for bird hunting. Upon learning of her disability, the breeder no longer required her services and passed her along to the agency.

Maggie is very sweet and eager to learn. She’s already able to receive and understand multiple hand signals such as sit, paw, lay down, here, etc. She’s full of energy! It’s not uncommon to see her “springing” all over Ballston sidewalks as she chases fall leaves. Her favorite activities are hallway sprints with tennis balls in the apartment and snuggling on the couch. On the occasional weekend, Maggie travels north to PA where she plays with 3-4 of her best dog friends and runs frantically around backyards.

We’re grateful to have Maggie as part of our lives! She loves people so if you see her around town, feel free to say hi.

Arlington Pet of the Week: Gertie

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Gertie, a 3-year-old shih tzu who loves making new friends.

Here’s what owner Amy had to say on Gertie’s behalf:

Hi I’m Gertie, a three year old Shih-Tzu dubbed the “Friendliest Dog on the Block” by my peeps in my South Arlington neighborhood.  I love to get to know any other dog or human alike, and sometimes to the embarrassment or my mom I will jump up to say hi or give some wet kisses if allowed!

In my free time I love to go on rides in the car.  Sometimes I even get to go sit outside William Jeffry’s Tavern or go to Home Depot and sit in the cart!  I also enjoy long walks around Thomas Jefferson Middle School, splashing around in my dog pool, and playing with my toys (especially my rubber chicken).  Most of all I like hanging out with my 2.5 year old human sister.    If you ever see me come up and say hi.  Did I mention I’m the friendliest dog on the block!?

Arlington Pet of the Week: Wiggles

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Wiggles, a three-year-old Siberian cat named for her balance challenges.

Here’s what her owner, Katherine, had to say:

Wiggles is our three year old Siberian cat.  We adopted her in 2016 from a rescue in Annapolis, MD.  Little did we know, she is well traveled but has been through a lot!  Wiggles was born with mild cerebellar hypoplasia. She has difficulties with balance and wiggles her body when she walks (hence the name). When she gets excited, her head tremors and she can’t jump very high (but she tries her best!).  Wiggles was born oversees by a breeder who threw her out of a car because no one would buy her due to her health condition.  However, a cat rescue worker found her and nursed her back to health!  A flight attendant who is connected with the rescue brought her oversees to the United States to be adopted which is when we met Wiggles!

Wiggles now leads a happy life watching birds and lounging around the house.  She is very spoiled by her parents and loves trying all kinds of new cat food.  She unfortunately has a grumpy face when taking pictures but is the sweetest cat in the world!  We are so happy she is in our lives!  Adopt, don’t shop!

Hello Arlington, I am Bella Perrella! I’ve been a Ballston resident just about 2 months now. I recently turned 4 months old and am a whopping 6 pounds which is mainly my fur.

Arlington Pet of the Week: Oliver

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Oliver, a 10-year-old bulldog with a face that breaks hearts.

Here’s what his owner, Justin, had to say about him:

This is Oliver but his friends call him Gus. He’s a 10 yr old American Bulldog, weighing in at 110lbs now, but he came to us as a puppy from Arizona. This breed’s agility, intelligence, and loyalty made them very helpful for handling cattle. Their strong jaws and muscular build was perfect for hunting wild pigs in American south where they had no natural predators. But by the end of World War II, the American Bulldog was almost extinct until a few breeders scoured the south for specimens to revive the breed. Today, the American Bulldog is in no danger of extinction and is mostly a family-friendly companion.

Oliver is a perfect gentleman who watches the neighborhood closely and when we have a visitor he lets us know with a few barks. But, that usually wears him out and he heads back to his bed for a siesta. At the dinner table he is very well behaved and never begs, but he does watch intently and after a while his sad face makes it impossible to not give him at least one little table treat. During the dog days of summer he especially loves watermelon, and he can eat it right out of your hand so gently you would think he was a puppy.Everyone in the neighborhood knows and loves him and he enjoys playing with kids and other dogs.

Ollie enjoys resting just about anywhere. He is a gentle giant who loves to snuggle close and his soothing snores help humans fall asleep like listening to the sounds of the ocean. But, it could also means he needs a CPAP machine for dogs.  At the end of the day he likes his family time where he can rest with his rawhide and relieve the stress of living in northern VA. He’s a great buddy!

Arlington Pet of the Week: Ducat

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Ducat, a 10-year-old labrador retriever named for some antiquated currency.

Here’s what owner Abigail had to say on Ducat’s behalf:

Hi friends! My name is Ducat, I am a ten year old Labrador Retriever and I live with my parents in Clarendon. For those of you who are curious, my dad named me after a gold coin formerly used in European countries because of my soft, golden hair (or golden feathers as my Mom fondly calls it). Although I have lived in Arlington all my life, I met my dad at my grandparent’s house in North Carolina when I was a little puppy. I literally walked into his life as I sought shelter from a cold, stormy night and we have been inseparable ever since!

If you can’t already tell from the pictures, I LOVE napping and cuddling. I love lying down on soft blankets and pillows. On nice sunny days, I like to sunbathe in our yard and occasionally chase rabbits and squirrels. I also enjoy going on hiking adventures with my parents and I look forward to my daily long walks in the neighborhood. My favorite snacks are carrots, broccoli, pizza, and cheese.

If you see me around please say hi! I am very friendly and I like to meet new pup and human friends. I have been known to shed but I have been told that these are magical fibers of joy and love!
