What a doll! She looks a bit like my two dogs.... That's so sweet that you scooped her up. Life is always better with a dog or two....

Miss Lily is becoming more playful, with the support of regular meals, no doubt. The vet said energy focused just on survival doesn't leave much for puppy behavior. Makes me sad for her.

She also likes to chew on things she shouldn't, and is starting to growl and be territorial when a raccoon or armadillo comes too close to our campsite. She is a pooch who craves affection and petting---which I like. She snuggles up and leans in to you to be petted and scritched. Can't get too much of that.

Life is good.


Maggie

God bless you and Miss Lily.

All of our dogs are rescues and we love them all to pieces.

I hope your vet did scan her for a microchip while she was in, as there is always that slim possibility that somebody lost her and is looking for her. And if she doesn't have one, you might think about having one implanted when you get her "fixed". She can't lose it like she could lose a collar with tags.

He did scan her, thanks for the suggestions, and we also left our name and phone number with the Parrish sheriff if anyone calls looking for her.

11 days and heading back to Illinois

Lily had a long weekend with pet-loving family and their dogs, and is doing very well. She appears to be well socialized, plays hard with others and is not aggressive.

She's also decided she's a lap dog--see below.

What a great beginning to what looks to be a meant-to-be addition to your family! God bless you!!! Can't wait to see more pics of Lily enjoying 'streamin' with you.

Thanks for the warm wishes. She is such a sweetie, and we love her more each day.

We arrived home Tuesday evening. The 2-day drive from southern Mississippi in our little Interstate was long for her and rather difficult for me, with 33lbs of dog wanting to ride on my lap. She likes to be close enough to be touched and cuddled at all times. Many stops and bruises on my legs later, she is glad to have the run of our house and back yard, and quickly showed us she knew to paw at the doors and yelp when she needed to go outside. We made her a bed in our room, so we can close her in at night, as her single bad behavior is picking up shoes, remotes, phones, etc., and chewing on them.

A visit to Petco yesterday, for a Kong and pretty bling name-tag, and an appointment early Monday to be spayed. She charms everyone she meets. Life is good.


Maggie

Oh Miss Lilly you are so cute. Paige has left and gone to San Antonio. Maybe we might meet somewhere during our travels.

I don't think you will be sorry for picking up this great looking animal. We did the same,kinda, when we took in a 1 1/2 yr old Golden Retriever in June when we lost our little Schnauzer GIDGET too heart problems. He is a joy to have around.His family (military) transferred to Germany and could not take him.
I know Lilly will get the best care possible and bring joy to your home. Dog's just have a way of doin that.
Good Luck with your new family member.

Thank you.

As some readers here know, Doug is not a dog lover, never having had them growing up as his mother believed dogs belonged outside on a farm. Our Gus died 6 years ago, and he has been adamant that we would not have another one. (Part of that, I know, due to both of our intense grief and anguish at her death. ) However, Lily has charmed her way into his heart.

Snow Lily

She wasn't too sure about this stuff at first, then ripped around the back yard and enjoyed it thoroughly.

Such a sweet baby.
