Pet of the Week

Appa & Momo Jenkins – English Bulldog

How did you obtain your pet?

A reputable and well-researched breeder in Northern Virginia.

How old is your pet?

Appa is two years old and Momo is one and a half years old.

What is your pet’s favorite pastime?

Any time they can wrestle and gnaw at one another like hippos.

What is your pet’s favorite toy?

Appa thinks every single toy belongs to him and Momo just wants to play with Appa. It’s a constant circle.

What is your favorite thing about your pet?

You can feel their emotions – when Appa shakes because he is overwhelmed with happiness to go outside for a walk or when we get home and they just want to cuddle with us. Appa rolls on his back and lets us hug him.

If your pet had a superpower, what would it be?

If eating were a superpower that would be Appa’s – like one of those professional eaters who can crush 100 hot dogs in three minutes. Momo would be the Flash because she gets daily spells of crazy and runs and jumps on everything trying to attack Appa and get him to chase her.

Why does your pet love Caring Hands Animal Hospital?

It’s important that your Vet feels like a second home because you have to see them for check-ups and sometimes for tough situations – everyone at Caring Hands treats us like family and genuinely cares for Appa and Momo. Dr. Thornton, Dr. Robinson, and the entire team from the moment we walk in the door are always welcoming and ready to help. They have helped us with so many questions as new pet owners and it’s been invaluable. We call, email, and even text sometimes with our silly questions and everyone is so supportive.
