Likes:
FOOD and the beach above all else! Bones of all sort, playing tug of war, wrestling with boys, cuddling under the blankets and especially snoring right next to mommas face, biting the wind while we're on car rides, BACK SCRATCHES and the furminator!

Pet-Peeves:
the evil vaccum cleaner! Funny noises, when people blow in my ear, getting my nails done, when other doggies mess with my food, driving by the beach and not stopping---what a tease!, when people DON'T pay attention to me, people that are terrified of me.

Favorite Toy:
Anything mom let's me rip to shreds! Otherwise bones are a treat, ropes cause tug o war is the best game EVER, tennis balls so I can make them nice and slobbery and drop them on mom's lap..oh, and ducks are fun.

Favorite Food:
chilled carrots...well basically anything

Favorite Walk:
Every beach ive ever been to! Parks, especially parks with ducks...

Best Tricks:
I know sit, stay, down, up, shake, pound, high-five, and play dead! Genius!

Arrival Story:
I was living in Los Angeles and got my first substantial tax return back, and decided the best way to spend it would be to adopt a dog. We had gone to a couple different shelters in the LA area but none as sad and depressing as the one in San Pedro that we stopped at. It was tiny, cramped, with 2, 3, sometimes 4 dogs to a kennel. I spotted Tilly immediately, being stomped on and waiting patiently at the front of the gate she was sharing with two other extremely large dogs. We took a walk around and eventually ended up back at her and decided to take her out to play with. She loved the tennis ball, and loved rolling on her back and being near people. She warmed up to us immediately. She had scars and scabs on her neck, ears and face, apparently from getting beat up on by her kennel-mates, in the event of which she rolled over onto her back and let them knaw on her face. All of the volunteers at the shelter talked relentlessly about how wonderful she was, how they hoped above all other dogs she would get adopted because she was such a sweetheart. I knew from seeing her once that she was my dog. We adopted her that day.

Bio:
She was originally a stray, so we're not entirely sure about her age but she still acts like a puppy, and she seems like she might have some boxer in her. Oh, and she has a really intense lazy eye.
