Tysons, VA

Tysons’ Pet of the Week is Beau, an energetic pup who loves hiking and playing fetch but also cuddling up on the couch.

Here’s what his friends at Lost Dog and Cat Rescue Foundation have to say about him:

Beau is a 1-year-old Aussie-mix, who had a bit of a rough start to his life and is ready for his loving forever home!

While initially skeptical of some people, Beau opens up quickly over a game of fetch and shows his goofy, playful self. You’re sure to win him over if you can throw the tennis ball for hours! If you’re looking for a high-energy dog to play with and take on hikes that also likes to cuddle with you, this is the one. Beau loves to run and play with you and/or other dogs for hours, but at the end (or the middle) of the day, there’s nothing he wants more than to curl up and cuddle with you!

Beau gets along wonderfully with his foster brother and would be happy to play all day with a resident dog or be your one and only that gets all the love and attention. Beau is looking for an active, adults-only home with a fenced yard and dog experience. He is great with other friendly, playful dogs, but he doesn’t like those pesky smaller creatures like cats or bunnies!

If you’re looking for a smart, active pup that learns quickly and knows basic commands, is house-trained and loves to play (with humans and canines), then Beau would like you to apply to be his best friend!

Are you and Beau the perfect match?

This past weekend was the opening day for Vienna Little League. It’s a reminder of some normalcy,
some fun for the kids, and it was just a really beautiful weekend to enjoy it… until I got home Saturday evening after watching two games (both of my kids play).

My 6-year-old had eyes swollen to the size of the baseballs he just threw. Lucky for all of us, there’s Dr. Karen Kaufman. I see her as well because my son inherited his affliction from me.

Dr. Kaufman is a local Vienna mom, a veteran, female entrepreneur and all-around very kind human. She’s also a fantastic doctor.

My first consult with her lasted two hours because we talked about everything so she had a full picture of what kind of care I needed. Since when does a doctor do that?

If it’s time you stopped ignoring your allergies — or to stop suffering from them year after year — go see her. She’s located in Vienna at 8320 Old Courthouse Road, Suite 310.

You’ll probably see me there with a swollen-eyed child this week.

Learn more about Dr. Kaufman on her website.

Virginia Tech’s Evening MBA program is among the best in the country, according to a 2022 survey of the nation’s top graduate schools by U.S. News & World Report.

In the newly released rankings of Best Part-time MBA programs, Virginia Tech’s Falls Church-based program is ranked No. 28 overall and No. 1 in Virginia.

In addition, Virginia Tech’s Arlington-based Executive MBA was named the nation’s fifth best by GreatBusinessSchools.org.

“The rankings reflect our commitment to providing students with top-quality education, immersive experiences, and a robust network that will strengthen their career prospects for years to come, all at a high-value tuition rate,” said Dana Hansson, director of MBA programs at Virginia Tech.

In January, Virginia Tech announced it will expand this commitment by offering a fully online MBA program.

“Accommodating students with virtual learning over the last year across all of our MBA formats allowed us to explore fully online delivery as a permanent option through the recently announced Online MBA. This new program seats its inaugural cohort this summer, and we’re already encouraged by the level of interest and strength of the applications we’ve received,” said Hansson.

The online program will build on the strength of Virginia Tech’s already established programs, said Parviz Ghandforoush, Associate Dean for Graduate Programs at Virginia Tech’s Pamplin College of Business.

“The new format allowed us to combine some of the tried and true features of our established in-person MBA formats and online master of information technology to craft the best possible educational experience for students who value consistent interaction with their classmates and also want the flexibility of an online program,” Ghandforoush said.

Program leadership is encouraged by the latest recognition for its Evening and Executive formats and looks forward to expanding its suite of part-time programs.

“Our strategic focus since 2013 has been to provide working professionals with flexible options that fit into their personal and professional lives. We’re excited to provide this new opportunity to professionals across the globe who want to further their careers and join our talented group of students and alumni who are proud to call themselves Hokies,” Hansson said.

Tysons’ Pet of the Week is Boomer and Frisky, two fellas who were transported up from Texas after the winter storm earlier this year.

Here’s what their new friends at 4Paws Rescue Team had to say about them:

Meet Boomer and Frisky! They came up together from Texas when it was freezing over. Now they are best friends. It would be great if they could stay together as a pair.

Boomer is the orange and white big guy. Boomer is a talker and rather demanding of his attention. Boomer is very tolerant and would do fine with children of any age. Boomer is dealing with some allergies, but with half a Zyrtec a day, he’s fine.

Frisky is the younger brown tabby. Frisky takes a bit longer to warm up, but he is just as affectionate once he’s settled in. Frisky has made friends with his human foster brother, and is fine with older children.

Both are immensely sweet. They absolutely love being petted and will crawl into your lap to get affection. They follow you around and come out to greet you. They both enjoy being brushed and are tolerant of having their claws clipped. Neither of them are picky about food, and they both have great litter box habits.

Boomer’s estimated birth date in October 2017 and Frisky’s is June 2019. Both cats have been neutered, are current on vaccinations, have tested negative for FIV and Feline Leukemia, and are microchipped.

Are you, Boomer and Frisky the perfect trio?

The weather yesterday couldn’t have been nicer, and it has me already itching for summer! Lazy days at the pool, beach trips and no more computer screens.

It got me thinking: Where can we take a dip in an indoor pool these days? Coupled with a daytime “staycation,” a nice swim might help break up the days.

  • Fairfax County Pools: Buy tickets a week in advance (Sunday tickets open up for the Monday a week away, etc. On April 4, tickets go on sale for April 12.)
    • Spring Hill Rec Center — McLean
    • Oak Marr Rec Center — Oakton
    • Cub Run Rec Center — Chantilly
    • Providence Rec Center — Annandale
  • Lifetime Fitness (Fairfax or Reston): Call and ask about passes/times
  • Machine Performance Center (Vienna): Over 18 only for open swim
  • George Mason Aquatic Center (Fairfax): See hours online and call for more details
  • My favorite idea: Book the cheapest hotel room possible with an indoor pool (like the Hilton Garden Inn in Falls Church), go swimming and then let the kids watch a movie. A lot of the indoor pools at hotels are closed due to COVID-19, so make sure you call first.
