Little miss Lilly had an eventful weekend.  We first went to get her microchipped on Saturday but the vet was running late and ultimately had to cancel the appointment .  We made the trek back out on Sunday, and luckily there were no delays.  Come Sunday night she had two accidents in the house and then started asking to go out a lot.  We noticed she was having trouble going outside and we must have taken her out 15 times during the Super bowl.  We got her a vet appointment for Monday and the vet confirmed she had a UTI.  We got her started on some antibiotics and she seems to be getting better.   She did great in the car on all three labrador retriever mixShe is back to being a very playful and energetic puppy and even when she wasn’t feeling great on Sunday still wanted to run around with the resident dog.  She has been doing a lot better in the crate at night which we have in our guest bedroom now.  She has been sleeping great through the night. She was the talk of the bus stop this morning and loved getting all the attention from the kids. black labrador retriever mix

Lilly has been here for a week now and is starting to settle into our routine.  She wakes up around 7 or 7:30 and has some playtime in the morning and then we go on a walk in the morning before FM and FD start work.  She has the typically feeding frenzy lab appetite so we took on the kong wobbler to slow this little girl down.  She will hang out on the couch in the morning and will spend an hour or two in her crate.
black labrador retriever mixShe loves playing with the resident dog during the day and they chase each other around the house.  We go for another walk after the work day and then some play time before the Olympics begin.  Lilly will settle down cuddling on the couch and is picking up a thing or two from the athletes.  She has started her training for  the summer 2024 high jump as she managed to leap over the baby gate to our kitchen when FM and FD were cooking.
black labrador retriever mixShe has met some of the kids and dogs in the neighbor and has done fantastic with all of them. Lilly has only had 1 accident in that last 4 days! We take her out fairly frequently but she has started going to the door to let us know she needs to go out.

Lilly and the resident dog are getting along fabulously!  They love to chase each other around the living room and manage to play tug with the smallest toys possible. black labrador retriever mixThen after play time Lilly is great about settling in her crate or on the couch so FD and FM can work. She has been spending a couple hours in the crate in the morning and afternoon. black labrador retriever mixHouse training is going pretty well. She knows when we go outside she needs to do her business and it might have been a fluke but last night she rang the bells on the door to tell us she needed to go out!  We switched to a front clip harness and it has helped tremendously on walks. black labrador retriever mixShe has been sleeping in her crate from around 11 to 7.  She is highly treat motivated which we love to see!

Our first night with Lilly we quickly learned she did not want to be left alone in the crate so FD slept on a nearby couch.  Once she knew FD was close she slept through the night and slept from 11:00 to 6:30.  While FD and FM worked she spent most of her time snoozing on the couch or sleeping in her crate.  On our second night with Lilly we figured out putting a blanket over her crate and playing some soft music really calmed her down and she slept till almost 7am this morning and FD got to sleep in bed!black labrador retriever mixLilly is a bit of a tripping hazard on walks and needs some work on the leash. We take her on two long walks a day and she loves to zig zag under FD or FMs feet but she seems to be picking up some queues from the resident dog so we are hoping it gets a little better each day.  She is very snuggly and will easily cuddle up to whoever is sitting on the couch.   Lilly has also learned that bean bag chairs make the best dog beds and runs and leaps into the bean bag chair with her labrador retriever mix

We had a great first day with Lilly! She settled quickly in the car on the way home from the pick up.  Everything is still new and scary but she is handling it like a champ. black labrador retriever mixSo far Lilly loves to be near her people, the couch, cuddles and licking the resident dogs face. black labrador retriever mixShe did not love getting a bath but didn’t put up to much of a protest.  I don’t want to jinx it but so far NO accidents! She has the softest fur and is such a love bug.   black labrador retriever mixWe can’t wait to get to know her more.
