Rocky is the Hill Pet of the Week. He’s a 3-year-old beagle mix, who loves to spend time with other dogs. Here’s his bio shared by his owner, Lari Lavigne:
When asked what he’s mixed with, our usual response is, “half beagle half trouble.” He loves going to Marion Park and Garfield Park to see his friends and spends many weekdays in DogMa [daycare and boarding for dogs], which he also loves. On weekends, he gets to walk all the way down to the National Mall and back to his home near Eastern Market. His favorite adventure is visiting our cottage in Northern Neck, Va. where he can run free and chase rabbits and squirrels until he’s completely worn out. His idea of relaxing at the river house is a snooze on the back of the boat while we fish.
He loves going to the market on the weekends and knows the blue reusable bag we always take. When we pull that out, he starts running around the living room and jumping at the front door. He will literally pull you all the way to Metro Mutts and then run in to immediately sit by the cash register until they give him a treat. No . . . he’s not spoiled. He’s the best sight in the world after a long day at the office.
