August 5th 2005

Inhaling food; followed by- car rides; constant attention; blankets; dressing up; sunbeams; baths; cat turds;....and basically looking for trouble

Being left alone for even a minute; waiting for food to be served

Favorite Toy:
Kong stuffed with banana or baby food fruit; Nylabone wishbone; a bright yellow plastic ball with a small inner ball and bell that makes a lot of noise; anything that she can get into her mouth or off limits

Favorite Food:
Lily would eat anything and everything all day long if allowed, but due to allergies she does best eating Wellness Simple Solutions duck formula dog food that also maintains her girlish figure at 17 pds; crazy for fruit, especially BANANAS

Favorite Walk:
Anywhere there's something to lick off the ground; and following her mom EVERYWHERE

Best Tricks:
"Come", "sit", "shake hands", "lay down", "stay"; making food "disappear" in the blink of an eye; escaping from 3 harnesses at once; performing the infamous Pug "tragic face/head tilt/who me routine" to get out of trouble

Arrival Story:
A local pet store was going to ship Lily back to the BYB because she was born with a potentially progressive eye problem (pigmentary keratitis). I wouldn't hear of it knowing that they would probably neglect her treatment, use her for mass breeding...OR put her down due to financial losses. I offered to take her to the vets and eye specialist if they would consider the best interest of the puppy and hand her over to me. I returned to that pet store a few more times to persuade them, and they finally agreed. I'm reminded of how controversial the subject of BYB/puppymills is everyday as I put medication into Lily's big loving eyes in hopes of preventing a lifetime of blindness from the hereditary eye disease she was born with. It's deplorable to disregard a higher standard of life by mass producing or profiting by genetically impaired, unhealthy litters ...but the fact still remains that the innocent puppies deserve a loving home with proper treatment as well.

Lily can make us almost forget she's a dog (if only it wasn't for that curly tail), because she has many human qualities. Lily can be "too smart for her own good" some times. Although, when she's not being a stubborn "little rascal" or looking for trouble, Lily is comical and a lot of fun. She's a big ham for the camera and comes running from the other room to mug for a picture as soon as she hears the little beeps when it's turned on. Lily is one of those dogs who really enjoys "wearing things"...anything she can put on her body and show off. She covers up herself with blankets in her bed. Lily squeals for joy in the car, and she knows how to have a good time in the water. Very good at getting her point across ....she is a master of sound effects and can imitate a chimp, a horse, and a human baby when she wants something. Lily is clever, demanding, and the most loyal dog I've ever been owned by.

More food with my *whine* please
