Kindergarten Graduate!

Mommy, WOW! I'm a big kid now. Our little girl (aka Lily "monster") graduated puppy kindergarten on Thursday, October 29th. She can now sit, stay, down, wait, come, leave-it, and heel like a pro. Okay, well maybe not a pro, but she is doing great and is well on her way to growing up to be a well-behaved (and rediculously adorable) doggy.
Lily on the day we 1st met her at 3 weeks old.

Lily is the dominant dog at home, but it's a different story when she's around strangers and other dogs. She gets really shy and actually will yelp like she's hurt when she first meets another dog. Needless to say the first day of kindergarten was pretty tough for her, but by the end of the class she had come out of her shell enough to make some doggy friends in her class. We'll have to keep working on her socializing going forward, but I was very surprised and impressed with the progress she made in her class learning manners and tricks despite being shy. Of course dried liver treats are a wonderful bribe, I mean training tool. :)

Great job Lily monster I can't believe you're growing up so fast. (She turned 7 months old today!) You may be a little "monster" at times, but I love your beautiful brown eyes, your crooked tail wag wiggle, your super soft fur, and the fact you LOVE to cuddle and ride in the car. You'll always be my little snuggle bug.
