Lily is a great dog! She is extremely smart as well. We have our rose bushes behind a wire fence since one of our previous dogs loved the taste of roses. Sometimes when we are throwing the ball for Lily it goes inside the rose fence. Lily has discovered the secret people only passage into the rose garden and races right into the garden grabs the ball and brings it back to us.
Lily is still learning the rules of the house and now knows that all toys are not hers. Sharing can be fun! Our other Lab used to tell us when it was mealtime. He doesn’t do that anymore since Lily took over that job. She lets you know when the time is near and would prefer it if you could hurry-up.
She passed her obedience school but we had attended more for socialization than anything else since Lily knew all of the commands and does most of them quite well. We are still working on noisy streets which she doesn’t really like but she’s getting there.
Lily has her own bed schedule and goes to bed on her own around 7:30. We have to call her down around 9:30 so she can take her last outside call and get a snack before the real bedtime. A snack is a tradition in our house usually consisting of a couple of bits of fruit or veggies. She has learned to enjoy all kinds of fruits and veggies and knows that she will only get food in the kitchen away from the table.
On her last Vet visit Lily weighed 78 Lbs. and the Vet said she was in perfect health.
She continues to be a great watchdog letting us know of any imminent danger and does not like to see any squirrel walk across her deck. She really wants to catch one!
Lily enjoys going to the dump because she will get a biscuit there. Fun stuff! And of course she loves riding anywhere. Take me! Take me!
She is always with one of us going food shopping or working outside and sometimes in the house can’t quite decide which one of us to stay with. So she shares a few minutes with one and then with the other. Usually she is carrying her toy bear with her and always remembers where she left it.
She is a sweetheart!
