The Hill Pet of the Week is Roscoe, a a fluffy Keeshond who likes Eastern Market and the Southeast waterfront. Here’s what his owner, Terry, shared about him:
Hi, my name is Roscoe and I am a 6-year-old Keeshond. I moved to Capital Hill almost two years ago from Brooklyn and I love it here. There are so many fun places to visit, including Garfield Park, the Congressional Cemetery and Eastern Market. Eastern Market is my favorite because everyone wants to meet me and pet me and some people even let me give them kisses! The nice people at the restaurants are very good about putting water out for me. I love to run loose in the park, but I think chasing balls is a silly thing to do. I’d rather hang out with the people.
Being a Dutch barge dog by ancestry, I also love to visit the Southeast waterfront. I hope my mommy can get tickets to a Pets in the Park Nationals game this year! I’m so glad that it is winter time, but for some reason my mommy has been taking me on shorter walks lately. We have been spending a lot of quality time by the fireplace. Maybe she’ll take me out for a longer walk if it snows.
