A high-heel loving gal and her trusty sidekick…

such a gal

I was browsing old posts tonight, and came across this gem:

"So, on our 2 week anniversary, here are some things I've learned about my pup:
1) She LOVES me. And pretty much everyone else she's ever met. But she is my shadow at all times when I'm home. Never more than 2 feet from me. :P
2) She is killer with a tennis ball - and this makes me soooo happy, cuz all I wanted was a dog who would play fetch! (Although she won't bring the ball back until she has spent a good 3 minutes tearing around the yard at top speed with it first...)
3) She is pretty smart (I think)... she can "sit" like no one's business, and is slowly learning other tricks as well (week 2 of puppy school is on Monday).
4) She likes to have a wide variety of toys/chewies that she can choose between - but will always pick Joan over any other.
5) She is pretty much the cutest, sweetest puppy in the whole world! :)

(Not sure why it turned green...) Anyways, thought an UPDATE was in order!

Really, not much has changed since week 2 of life with Lucy Longinotti.
1) I am, far and away, still her #1 gal. (Don't worry Lulu, the feeling is definitely mutual.)
Her new favorite thing? The second I walk through the door, she sprints for the closest tennis ball and forces me to play fetch with her as long as I can stand it. It is hilarious.
Still my shadow at pretty much all times.
2) See above. LOVES her tennis ball. Although now she brings it back pretty much immediately. ;)
3) Definitely smart. But I am bad at bothering with new tricks. Also, terrible on a leash. She prefers to run free. (We are currently working on expanding our "circle of trust" - ie, how far I'll let her get before thinking she might run away...)
4) Joan got mauled by the lawn mower this summer. :O We are all devastated by the loss.
5) Definitely still the sweetest little pal in the whole wide world.

you two are a grand team. LL is a sweet puppy, and she has resigned herself to the use of the gentle leader when we go on walks (well, more or less resigned, she by no means LIKES it. Esp when Grammy doesn't put it on right).

Also, so sad I killed Joan...

I don't know why but reading "joan got mauled by the lawn mower" made me totally laugh out loud. poor joan.
