Lily, what a beautiful girl you are. You look like the twin sister of my mixed breed pup, Tyson, except that he is 2˝ years old. Like you, he uses his paws like a cat or a person, has a playful growl (the likes of which I have never heard before), when he yawns he makes a long drawn-out noise just like a person, he loves all people and animals AND he is absolutely crazy about car rides. He will give up his dinner to go for a car ride even though he having fresh beef. Or if one of us puts on walking shoes, he will stick to us like glue...he loves to go for a walk. Lily, I think you and he are of the same ilk. To describe one is to describe the other. CONGRATULATIONS lovely girl on being our beautiful Dog Of The Day. Best wishes to you and your family for a long and very bright future. Meeting you made my day better.
