   Leave a bone for Tillie

Nicknames:
tillie bug, tilders, sweet t, lover girl, sweet thing, sweetness, sassy pants, my precious

Quick Bio:
-mutt-pound dog

Likes:
running wild and free in wide open spaces, scooting between my legs to say hello, a good belly rubbin' and booty scratchin', kisses on the nose, swimming in the river and the thankfully infrequent roll in something dead

Pet-Peeves:
being told 'no!', being left behind in the house every morning, being brushed, being bit on the ears by her little brother manny, lawn mowers and vaccuum cleaners (actually, i can't tell if she loves 'em or hates 'em, but she sure does bark at 'em)

Favorite Food:
anything with meat in it (she's all carnivore), peatnut butter, cat poop and greenies

Favorite Walk:
anywhere without a leash, anywhere she hasn't been before (all those new smells!) and the occasional solo survey of the neighborhood when she lets herself out of the back yard

Best Tricks:
she's too cool for tricks (so she says!)

Arrival Story:
tillie was 4 mos when she came to live with us. my partner called from petsmart, where she'd gone to get dog food, to say that she was in love and that i should come talk her out of bringing home a third dog. right. i took one look at tillie (then mathilda) sitting so alert and calm amid the puppy chaos and new she would be coming home with us. the first weeks were rough...she was very sassy (beligerent, even) had no manners and dug holes in my garden. but we quickly bonded and she's been a joy ever since.

Bio:
tille has made me a true dog person and makes my life better every day. i've known and loved dogs before, but she's the first to show me what real doggie love is and i'm so grateful. she's sassy, super-smart, completely spoiled (as all dogs should be) and, i swear, the love of my life!

I've Been On Dogster Since:
