Joanna and Woodson


#dcdogmoms just can't get enough of @woodsonthewelshie and his beautiful smile here at the @UnionMarketDC #FollowYourHeart mural. Read on to learn more about him and his mom, @joannamringo, this #dogmommonday!

JoAnna, dog mom to Woodson (also known as W, dude, peanut butter, no!, and stop that!) a 2.5-year-old #WelshTerrierwelcomed in 2015 from Kissing Rock Farms in VA.  

JoAnna's favorite thing about Woodson: Woodson knows that he's a part of the family, and he includes himself in everything. He even requests a chair at the dinner table just so that he can see what's going on. I love when he locks eyes, as though he's telling me something. He's a health nut too! His favorite snacks are cherry tomatoes and berries. He knows where we keep the tomatoes and will sit patiently at the table until I notice that he's waiting for a treat!  

Woodson's favorite thing about JoAnna: "My momma loves me to pieces even though sometimes I'm more of a #WelshTerror than a #WelshTerrier! She even makes me a piece of salmon every Friday night. I love that my momma gives me perfect chin and ear scratches. I like it so much that I purrrr! Any time I hear the cheese drawer open, I'll run up two flights of stairs as fast as I can, because she always has a piece ready for me! And Momma takes me on fun trips, like to the sunflower fields and to great waking spots like the Navy Yard and @TheodoreRooseveltIsland."  

A Perfect DC Day: "We start our Saturday mornings with a family walk to @CompassCoffee. There are usually some other doggies there for me to play with while mom & dad enjoy coffee. From there, we walk to the farmer's market on U Street. I usually behave so well that mom and dad give me tomatoes right from the farm stands. After that, we go to the S Street  #dogpark or to the hardware store, where they give me lots of cookies! We'd spend the rest of the day doing something outdoors—maybe going to my favorite hangout, @dachadc, before grilling on our roof deck. I love keeping watch over my @Bloomingdaledc hood from up there."
