Reston Pet of the Week: Baci

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Pet of the Week is Baci, a chocolate lab with a long list of nicknames.

Here is what owner Nic has to say about him:

Baci, a 6-year-old chocolate lab affectionately known as Pumpkin, Bubs, Noodle, VP Joe ‘Bitin’,  or Joey, is a subdued lover of naps and lounging who also knows how to have fun when the time is right.

He loves all things except vacuums, and his favorite food is apples.

He came into the Querolo household at the tender age of 12 weeks and was the runt of his litter. Against all odds, he has made his way to a healthy 90 pounds and is comfortable with the way he looks.

In his free time, Baci enjoys trips to his mom’s barn to see whats going on with her horses and cats. He is infamous for once finding the first aid kit in the back of the car and ingesting the package of TUMS, tampon and battery that were inside. There were no consequences.

His life goals include once taking a 24-hour nap, and one day being able to ride a horse. He also would like to meet more people. His claim to fame is his ability to find his collar wherever it is in the house so long as somebody gives him hints. He’s a real champion.
