Reston Pet of the Week: Angus

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Reston Pet of the Week is Angus, a human-sized Great Dane.

Here is what owners Kara and Chris have to say about their pet:

Meet Angus, our 2-year-old Great Dane. We brought him home when he was eight weeks old and 25 pounds. Now he is a whopping 130 pounds. He is a great big goofball and still acts like a puppy. He is so entertaining to have around the house and always makes us laugh at his antics.

His favorite things are destroying toys, sitting on laps, chasing sticks, catching snowballs, playing in the snow and swimming. Most of the time he is just a big couch potato though and loves snuggling on the couch. He typically takes over an entire side of our sectional couch. If you want to sit on the floor, watch out because he will come and plop all 130 pounds on you because he thinks he is a lap dog.

Angus is so good with our 2-month-old daughter. He is always going to her swing or crib to check on her and loves licking her head. We love him to pieces and he is such a sweetheart. He has been such a blessing in our lives and can’t imagine life without him.
