Happy Birthday to our Lily bug! We can't believe you're already 4 years old! You've been so much fun and a challenge. This past year we spent some time in training classes. You continue to be so smart. You are quick to learn new tricks and really love showing everyone what you can do. You're a little shining star!
You have been walking at the harbor, in the park and on the beach. You love exploring new places, but you mostly love to greet other people. At home, you're the boss of everyone except NeeNee. You have fun bossing the boys around LOL!!! You are also quite a hunter, having caught a few birds. Every day you go on bunny control, and announce to the entire valley when you spot one.
One thing you have stopped doing is trying to escape our yard! Big accomplishment BOL!
Now that we have an RV, we will be traveling some. It'll be fun to see how you like it. You've traveled in a car, but it'll be different to live in a vehicle full time during a trip. Well, it should be an adventure!!!
Happy Birthday sweet Lily!!! Let's have an adventure today for your birthday.

Life is good! Thanks for picking my diary today Dogster!!! It is such a great way for us to catch up with each other and to meet new friends.
Yesterday, mom and I went to a new trainer!!! We're working on basic obedience right now. I love it because I get lots of treats BOLBOL!!! Tanya, my new trainer says we did great. I already knew some of the stuff like come and sit, but mom is learning what to do when I decide NOT to listen. I get distracted easily, but Tanya has some great tricks to get me to pay attention. My biggest issues are jumping all over people when they walk by and barking at other dogs. One of our friends came in and I jumped all over her, and wouldn't quit BOL!!! Part of the problem is that everyone always says "what a cute dog" and pets me, and lets me jump on them. So mom is working on getting me out of that. Not an easy task. A really cute 3 month old Jack Russell puppy came in after me, and I was barking a lot. A lesson for next week! Tanya says one of her dogs used to do that so we'll work on it. She has performance border collies who are really well trained, so there is hope for me she says. Tanya says I'm really smart and she could see me doing freestyle dance in the future. Sounds like fun - especially anything that lets me RUN FREE BOLBOL!!!
The best thing about training, is that mom sees the good in me. She may stop calling me the Maiden of Mayhem if we keep this up!

Today was my turn to walk with mom. Since her 2 knee surgeries, she only takes 1 of us every day for a walk. We walked on a trail along the coast, up above the ocean. Some of it was paved and some was dirt. I got to smell lots of different animals in the grass. There were some other people and dogs. I love people and I bark at the dogs BOL! Where we were, there was about 100 million steps down to the beach. Mom tried to trick me into running up and down the stairs, thinking I'd get tired. I went down one set and then back up. Mom told me to go down again, but I tricked her and stopped on the second step to wait for her. She can't walk on too many stairs so she wouldn't go down with me. So I ran back up BOL! I did get to chase one seagull, but I was on a leash so I couldn't catch him. I didn't even bother chasing the blackbirds after that.
It was a great walk. Mom says next time we'll go to one of the beaches since I did so well. I can't wait until it's my turn again!
