The Lillie Diaries~Her First Vlog

In case you were wondering, Lillie has settled in nicely. I can say with 100% honesty that she is not the same dog I adopted almost 3 weeks ago. Gone is the scared, timid, angry little dog. She’s so happy, so content. She loves breakfast and dinner and has told everyone who will listen that I serve the best meals. She’s getting better at NOT peeing in the house, although she’s not perfect. I too have trouble at times, so I can’t fault her too much.

News Alert: I’m not a morning person and if you want to have a nice life day, you’d do best not wake me up before I’m ready. Lillie likes to sleep in. Thank you Baby Jesus. I have to wake her up (Callie too) in the morning and this is awesome. No annoying dogs patting my head ready for food and fun before I’ve had coffee means everyone lives.

She has a few favorite spots to rest her head and is getting along well with Callie for the most part; she does have a jealous side as some bitches do.

She’s a very good listener and I love that. We spend a lot of time outside and she loves getting into the hedges and searches for bunnies, squirrels, cats, opossum, etc….you know she does what a Rat Terrier is supposed to do. But when I tell her it’s time to come in, she obediently follows me inside.

She enjoys laying by the lanai windows and will occasionally let me know that security has been breached by a lizard. We are inundated by lizards on the pool lanai and occasionally inside the house. Finally, someone to help me rid the house of lizards.

Just in case you were worried that Lillie is working 24/7, she does get some downtime each evening.

One morning I was in the Coach’s office, he had the TV on and Lillie was sitting in my lap. We noticed she was paying attention to the TV, it was the horrid news, so perhaps she was wondering what shit show was happening today…and then the Coach said, “Hey, lets put on the nature channel for her.”

He flipped to a nature channel and it was on a show about marine life. Fish, swimming underwater, as they do. A flounder to be exact and the Lillie lost her freaking marbles. At a flounder. It made me wonder if in her last life she was a fisherman/woman.

She has the cutest overbite. Dang. I just mentioned TEETH. again.

So, now whenever we’re settled in at night on the couch, watching the boob tube and a dog, cat, bird, etc comes on the screen, you get the picture, she jumps off the couch and tries to reach the TV. Bless her heart, she’s so short and in this aspect too, I can relate.

I shared a few months ago that Lolo’s dog Max occasionally watches TV. He’s part Rat Terrier, so he only watches the TV part-time. I did the math.

On super Bowl Sunday, I wasn’t going to watch that horseshit, so I went in our room to watch something more important; the Puppy Bowl. Lillie approved of this programming; who needs the effing NFL? NO ONE. But we all need a bowl of puppies.

On Sunday night she loves to watch America’s Funniest Home Videos; she and I both enjoy a good chuckle, but for the life of us we DO wonder who chooses the winners? No one that ever wins is the ones that we laugh at. It’s a head-scratcher. What gives, America?

We both agreed that the Dad up there in that video is an asshat for almost killing his children and laughing about it. I’m shocked a truckload of cash wasn’t handed to him afterward.

You hear a lot about this younger generation and all their phone/tablet/laptop/TV time destroys their social and mental health, so I’m going to limit Lillies screen time to just the evenings….I don’t want her turning into a damn snowflake who can’t handle being outside in the sun chasing critters or conversing with humans.

Linds came by for a little while yesterday to retrieve something, so Lillie met one of her human sisters. She brought me flowers and chocolate-covered strawberries, which was so very sweet. Sorry Lolo, I can be bought, so she’s my favorite child this week.

Anyhoo…Linds could not get over how cute Lillie is and how much she reminds her of Max. I can’t wait to see how the two of them are together one day because they both like to be as CLOSE as possible to me and we now know one of them is a jealous bitch.

I hope you all had a nice weekend and were touched in the head by cupid.

XOXO

    All is well at your house! I could never tolerate AFHV, but I don’t like slapstick, so that’s why. Those flowers are sweet. We had a quesadilla party last night with the three of us.

  2. Oh sweet Lillie . . . her first vlog was very enjoyable. How great that she has settled in so well. So lucky that she found you. Such an awesome one-eared protector. I especially liked the shot of Callie chilling in her bed, clearly thinking: “what’s with the energy you little nut?” I’m now anxiously awaiting when Lillie meets Max. Curly LOVES American Funniest Videos.

    We do not really bother with Valentines Day. Coach and I took Curly out to breakfast – we do a rotation so everyone gets breakfast with us 2x a year. She was available and hungry and we were at the restaurant like OH, PEOPLE ARE HERE BECAUSE OF VALENTINE’S DAY. DUH. She had travel b-ball at night and we got home at 8 pm and ate leftovers with her. Curly was like: OH, TWO MEALS WITH JUST ME TODAY. She’s great company, so that was great. I can’t say I was great company because I was inhaling my food. If you want to see me be non-conversational and unpleasant avoid feeding me dinner till 8 pm.

    1. We are so shocked and thankful at how well she’s adjusted.
      Curly for the win…two meals out in one day. Surely someone is gonna be mad they missed out on such goodness.

  3. I LOVE LILLIE. She is Buddy. He barks at the animals on the television all the time. GET THE HELL OUT OF MY HOUSE, he says. 😉

    She is fitting in perfectly to your world. This makes me so happy.

    I made the candy bar wreath for Ellie and Mike and I got each other the same thing…coffee shop gift cards and chocolate. We know each other well. 🙂

    Hah! What a cutie!! Glad that she is fitting in.
    Our little dog loves television also. We used to leave cartoons on for her,, she loves a show called Mighty Mike. Seriously.. she does. lol. Now, we’ve learned that she will sit forever staring at Youtube nature videos.

  5. Is a vlog when you video something? If so I shared one today on my blog, not knowing what to call it. I’m late to using the video part of my cell phone camera.

    That being said Lillie is adorable and has a personality that shines through the screen. However you do have to wonder about her dismay over flounder. A charming character flaw, perhaps.

  6. AWWW! Lilly’s so cute! II love the way Callie’s looking like “what is her deal?” had a cat that used to watch TV all the time! I can’t imagine lizards in the house! When we are in Florida we always think how cute they are but I’m sure you don’t necessarily think so!

    Omg you have an adorable new dog! I’m behind on my reading of your lovely blog and here I return to Cuteness Overload! Lilly! Lilly and Callie! Picture me speed reading (tears in my eyes) your previous posts of Lilly’s arrival and adjustment. (Digression – those paper flowers are *brilliant*! Thx for sharing!) And now I’m caught up and you have worked your magic and Lilly looks so loved and happy. From trembling and terrified to snuggled up, contented and sharing! What a cute lil ball she makes all curled up!

    Oh man. I’m tearing up again. You and your Coach (and Callie too) are such sweethearts for taking Lilly in and giving her time, patience and love. Not everyone would or could do that. You guys are some kinda wonderful with great big generous hearts.
