Meet Ian and Lucy, a pair of chihuahuas who are this week’s Reston Pets of the Week. Their owner Paul tells us how they came to be “siblings”:

Ian and Lucy are rescues who found their forever home in the North Point section of Reston.

Ian came into our lives nearly three years ago, and was joined by his “little sister” Lucy in September 2013. Although both are chihuahuas, they hav

They have very different temperaments. Ian is obedient, eager to please, and a bit shy. Lucy will march up to anyone, human or canine, and let her opinions be known, a habit we are trying to curtail without breaking her spirit.

Both are very loving and loyal and have an intense dislike of rain and snow — last winter was a bit too much for little Lucy. She is contemplating spending this winter in Florida with her “grandparents.”

Ian and Lucy enjoy walking through the neighborhoods and the trails, taking Long naps together, and watching TV with their humans. Lucy also enjoys tormenting Molly, our 17-year-old longhair cat.

Together they are truly family who have added immeasurable joy to our lives.

    I’m not certain, but I think there is a law against naming a dog, Ian, or Mark, or Greg, or Dave, and a few other names.

    OMG, love Chihuahuas! I was just looking at a Post story with “Frieda” the chihuahua who was named “Mayor of San Francisco for a Day” as part of a campaign to support the city’s animal shelter. She was just adopted too.

    I love pets named with real names, like those of the Pets of the Week. For years I named pets after relatives. What I like most these pups are rescues. Nice job! And be kind to that kitty cat.
