Pet of the Week: Hailey

Meet Hailey, Tysons’ latest Pet of the Week. Hailey is a sweet senior who loves being around people and sitting in the sun.

Here’s what her friends at Operation Underdog WV had to say about her:

Hello from Hailey!

This charming senior girl is super sweet and submissive. She came to us from a home that had too many cats and dogs to care for, and we are currently treating her for flea allergies and skin infection.

Hailey’s starting to feel better and likes nothing more than to bask in the sunshine. She likes people and is calm and respectful but is not overly rambunctious in her interactions. She is tolerant of other pets and would make a great addition to a family with older children or as a companion to an individual who is looking to spend peaceful days with a truly special senior soul.

Hailey is about 60 pounds and 10 years of age or older.

Are you and Hailey the perfect match?

Welcome to strawberry-picking season! It’s actually berry season — period — but I know strawberry picking is fun for everyone, especially when we’re all looking for ways to enjoy the changing weather. With a few asynchronous days left, plus weekends, here’s a list of some of the best places to go strawberry picking!

And remember: A lot of these will shut down if they’re over picked, so call ahead or check their social media pages for announcements. I’m also going to mention a few places that aren’t open yet but will be by the end of the month so you can explore options, especially if you’re trying to coordinate a group outing.

  • Messick’s Farm in Bealton, Virginia: Check their Facebook page for updates on the availability of U-pick. There are so many rows of strawberries, we were far away from other people. While Messick’s has their own custard and availability of treats, we drove about three miles down the road to the famous Moo Thru — an ice cream drive-thru, which was so good. (Coffee ice cream was delicious!)
  • Wegmeyer Farms in three locations in Hamilton, Aldie and Leesburg, Virginia: They have strawberry picking by appointment, which opens up the night before and fills up fast. Make sure you follow them on Facebook for the most up-to-date information. Don’t miss their donuts!
  • Hidden Gems Farms in Centreville, Virginia: This farm has summer blueberry picking this year. They also have other activities like playing with goats, plus food like donuts, bread and cheese.
  • Hollin Farms in Delaplane, Virginia: Hollin Farms will open in late May for strawberries and spring vegetables. They have a lot of other fruit throughout the year as well.
  • Butler’s Orchard in Germantown, Maryland: Reserve strawberry picking by appointment later this month. Reservations go live on Sundays and Thursdays at 5 p.m., so keep an eye out on their website! Walk-ins are welcome if there’s availability. Be sure to check their website for more details.
  • Shlagel Farms in Waldorf, Maryland: Shlagel Farms is open now for strawberry picking! They update availability on their Facebook page.
  • Swann Farms in Owings, Maryland: This farm is open for berry picking now! Check their website for updates.

If you find other places that are fun to go pick, please share in the comments below!

Not everyone has the time or resources to commit to a full master’s degree program. Some may already have a master’s and are just looking for a narrow update on a current skill set. For these reasons, Virginia Tech’s 100% online Master of Information Technology (VT-MIT) program now offers professionals the option to earn a graduate certificate in 10 specialized IT subject areas:

“Leaders can find a certificate that speaks exactly to their professional needs without having to commit several years to pursuing a master’s degree,” says Barbara Hoopes, Associate Professor of Business Information Technology at Virginia Tech.

In fact, nine of the ten certificates require just three courses, so professionals can earn a certificate in as little as 12 months as a part-time student.

Because the certificate courses are the same as those offered through the full degree program, students can apply their certificate courses toward their master’s if they decide to pursue the degree in the future.

Learn more about the fully online graduate certificates and master’s degree at an upcoming information session:

  • Session 1: Wednesday, May 12 at 3 p.m. (online)
  • Session 2: Monday, May 17 at 1 p.m. (online)

Can’t make it on these dates? Email [email protected] to receive a copy of a recently recorded session or visit vtmit.vt.edu to learn more.

Every one of my clients looking to buy a home has “Outdoor Space” at the top of their priority list. For some, it’s a rooftop terrace or a wrap-around balcony where they can enjoy a drink with loved ones. Others are looking for a place to grill out with family and friends or a grassy area to throw the ball. Regardless of the use case, we all are looking for more fresh air this spring.

Combining last week’s announcements that COVID vaccines are readily accessible in Fairfax County, and the CDC’s latest guidance that fully vaccinated people can go without masks outside, it makes sense that outdoor space is in extremely high demand. So, how about we take a step outside… together!

Pet of the Week: Broccoli

Meet Broccoli, Tysons’ latest Pet of the Week. Broccoli has had a tough life, but he’s learning to trust again and is looking for a quiet home.

Here’s what Broccoli’s friends at 4Paws Rescue Team had to say about him:

Broccoli is a pretty boy who has been through a lot. You can see in his eyes that life hasn’t been so easy. He came to a shelter with an injured leg that had to be amputated but is now living in a foster home with a 4Paws volunteer. After these last few months, Broccoli now knows how good it can be living inside and being loved, and he is looking for a quiet forever home with a patient and loving adopter.

Despite his past troubles, Broccoli is learning to trust again and shows his affection in many ways. In his foster home, he follows his foster mom around, rubbing against her legs, laying down in front of her and staring at her nonstop.

To get your attention, Broccoli will make a cute little chirping noise and likes to greet you with a meow and with his head raised up, looking for head scritches. He loves to rub against everything around him, including his humans. He will roll around on the floor, showing off his tummy, as a sign of trust. He is still a bit cautious of new people, fast movements and being touched on his backside, but with a patient adopter he will continue to become more confident.

Even though Broccoli doesn’t have his left back leg, that hasn’t made him any less mobile. He can run, go up and down stairs, and get on and off the couch. He likes being able to look out windows.

Broccoli is highly motivated by wet food and will follow you around until he is fed. He has perfect litter box habits. In his foster home, he gets along with the two female cats who live there. He will do best in a home without rambunctious pets or children.

Broccoli came to 4Paws from Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter in Maryland. His estimated birth date is March 2014. He is neutered, current on vaccinations, has tested negative for Feline Leukemia and is microchipped.

Are you and Broccoli the perfect match?
