Pet of the Week: Pipley

by RestonNow.com Sponsor April 18, 2018 at 1:45 pm 0

This is a sponsored post from Becky’s Pet Care, a professional pet care service in Northern Virginia.

Meet Pipley, a domestic short hair and tabby mix available for adoption locally.

Here is what his friends at Little Buddies Adoption and Humane Society have to say about him:

Pipley is amazingly affectionate and playful. He was the runt of the litter, but don’t let his size fool you — he leads the crew. He’s our little greeter. Consider adopting him with his sister Petunia.

Are you and Pipley a match? If so, let us know and our sponsor, Becky’s Pet Care, will send you some treats and prizes.

If you’re a pedestrian, you probably know to look left, right and left again before crossing the street — at least in theory.

In some parts of Reston Town Center, some pedestrians might be adding another unconventional step: waving a flailing yellow flag.

According to the local blog Restonian, signage near the Hyatt Parking Garage indicates a crosswalk pilot program has begun at the edge of Reston Town Center.

Instructions encourage pedestrians to grab a yellow flag from the edge of the crosswalk and wave it until approaching vehicles come to a complete stop, according to the news blog.

Signs caution that the flags are “just a safety tool” and that “pedestrians are reminded to look both ways, make eye contact with the driver and exercise caution before entering all crosswalks.”

A local pet sitting company that offers services for Herndon, Reston, Sterling and Ashburn, will celebrate its grand opening tomorrow (April 17) at 2:30 p.m. in front of Herndon’s Old Town Hall.

Pooch Pros Pet Care Services is owned by Herndon resident Cyndie Anderson.

Anderson, who has lived in Northern Virginia for 21 years, left her corporate job in 2000 to stay at home with her two stepdaughters. She opened her business after becoming an empty nester.

She owns two fur babies: a 14-year-old mixed breed and a nine-year-old Maltese.

The business is licensed, bonded and insured through Business Insurers of the Carolinas and Travelers Insurance, according to its website. A reception will follow the ribbon-cutting ceremony at ArtSpace Herndon (750 Center Street).

Pet of the Week: Bowie

by RestonNow.com Sponsor April 11, 2018 at 1:45 pm 2 Comments

This is a sponsored post from Becky’s Pet Care, a professional pet care service in Northern Virginia.

Meet Bowie, a Labrador Retriever mix available for adoption locally.

Here is what her friends at Safe Haven Puppy Rescue have to say about him:

Bowie along with his sister Roxy are gorgeous little Labrador mix babies of maybe 16 weeks old. He has a beautiful yellow coat and is a happy, friendly boy — he’s going to make his adopter’s a terrific companion.

There are also two more siblings that I’m waiting to get pics of so stay tuned for more. All of these lab mix pups have happy, affectionate dispositions and will be great family dogs.

Precious pups like these go fast, so please send your application on in pronto so you don’t miss out. Bowie is up to date on all shots and dewormings and carries an adoption fee of $355 which includes his micro chip. This extremely friendly little fella is going to bring lots of joy to some lucky adopters, so don’t delay.

Are you and Bowie a match? If so, let us know and our sponsor, Becky’s Pet Care, will send you some treats and prizes.

A 12-year-old student from Edlin School (10742 Sunset Hills Road) will appear on the NBC show “Genius Junior” on Sunday (April 15). 

The show, hosted by Neil Patrick Harris, airs every Sunday at 9 p.m.. Teams complete challenging brain teasers like spelling complex words backwards, relaying directions to a destination through rote memorization and memorizing the U.S. highway system.

Vinay Ayala, a seventh grader, is playing for the team, “The Fellowship of Genius Schmenius,” also known as FOGS. Other team members include an eight-year-old from Andover, Ma. and a nine-year-old from Kingsland, Ga..

Ayala enjoys building model cities and was part of a team that won first place in the national Future City competition earlier this year. He aspires to become an engineer.

“I love to memorize things,” Ayala said, noting that he can memorize a deck of shuffled cards in fifteen minutes and recite them in correct order.

The winning team will take home a grant that NBC promises will “set the stage for a big and bright future that lies ahead.”
