Well this sure has been an exciting week. Lily is learning all of the fun things living with other dogs. While she’s had a couple of accidents, she does her best to wait until her FPs let her outside. She’s learning to share toys, beds, space, and love with the two resident dogs and has even gained the respect of the constantly grumpy 10 year old Maltese, Bella. Lily loves sleeping on the pillows of the couch, showing her foster dad that she is a big fan of walking around with his shoes, and running outside with Ginny. Today, we had a pretty bad thunderstorm and although her FPs put sweaters on everyone, Lily didn’t seem to mind the storm at all. In fact, she spent some time running around outside with her FM in the rain.Besides her typical puppy nosiness, Lily is the sweetest pup. She loves snuggling and sleeping in the bed with her FPs, and especially loves pulling toys out of the basket once her FM has cleaned them all up. She’s incredibly intuitive and gentle (with a slightly less good sense of personal space) and she is growing so fast!

Lily had a long but exciting day yesterday. After getting a ride from two volunteers, she met her Foster Parents, Ross and Brittany. Lily rode in the middle of the front seat of Ross’ truck and was very shy at first, but she instantly took to her new duck and laid on her FM’s arm.
After about an hour car ride with no issues, Lily met her foster sisters, Ginny (2 yo, Brookline Alum) and Bella (10 yo maltese), and guest foster brother, Dutton (1 yo cavapoo). At first it was a bit overwhelming, but she almost immediately came into her own and started playing along. It seemed like this was her first time going up and down stairs (or at the very least, she’s only had a bit of practice) but now she’s a pro!
They all had a delicious dinner and Lily showed no signs of resource guarding, in fact, she was going around and asking everyone else if they wanted to share some of their food before finishing hers.
Lily played and played and played until everyone was tuckered out. Although the other dogs do not sleep in crates, we wanted Lily to have her own private and personal space, so she slept in a crate with tons of blankets and toys. She was incredibly proud that she slept through the entire night and only woke up when her FM did.
Lily does enjoy amazon boxes and is very intrigued in finding out what is inside them, but she mainly has stuck to the toys her foster parents have given her. She tried to sneak her FD’s work boot, but brought it over to him rather than hiding away to chew it.
For the most part, Lily has spent the day today sleeping on her FM on the couch together, guest appearing in her FM’s zoom meetings, and playing with Dutton and Ginny (Bella likes to oversee everything).
She is the sweetest pup, and both her foster parents have already fallen in love with her!
