Reston Pet of the Week: Wilson

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Reston Pet of the Week is Wilson, a 2-year-old Golden Retriever. Here is what his owner, Jennifer, has to say about him:

Meet Wilson! He greets anyone and everyone (human or animal) with a giant smile and sometimes a big, sloppy kiss. His talents include knowing the words: ‘Breakfast,” “Lunch,” and “Dinner,” and being an expert of the ‘leave it’ command. He also has a world-famous tail because it is so large and fluffy and is known to make people’s days by sitting in the passenger seat of our car and smiling at onlookers in traffic.

When he isn’t taking naps, Wilson enjoys playing tag and considers himself a stick connoisseur. If he had it is way, he would spend all his free time gnawing on sticks and running in the parks of Reston. … and rooting on his favorite sports team, the Washington Nationals.

Wilson’s favorite foods include: ice cubes, lettuce(!), and peanut butter, for which he will do endless tricks. Whenever he hears the sound of lettuce being cut for salads, or ice cube trays being emptied, he is never far away and will appear out of nowhere in hopes of getting a special treat. His favorite current activity is trying to befriend the household cat, Sophie, which is a work in progress….#hiss.
