Lilly got spayed and had a cyst removed this past Thursday. She has to keep the cone collar on since she wants to lick her incision site. They had a difficult time with the inside sutures due to her having thin skin on the inside. So she has an ace bandage around her middle while she heals for extra support. She is very quiet and HATES her collar. She will get her vaccines on April 25th and then be set to go. She is still a delightful dog. I would categorize her as high energy, and she will need daily exercise. Her previous owner would run her off leash to get the energy out of her. I would say she will need about a 3 mile run/walk every day if on leash. She would prefer to be somewhere with a large area to run loose. She loves our 8 acres (fenced) and will run as fast as she can with her nose down. She likes water and has run in the creek. I have two new fosters and she likes to play with them.

Lilly has the worst timing. She came into heat the day before her scheduled spay. So she will be in our care for awhile yet. She cannot get spayed until 60 days after she is out of heat. That will be in May. She did test high positive for Lymes and low positive for anaplasmosis. She is on Doxycycline for thirty days.

This girl is a delight. She loves my husband and they spend time snuggling on the couch. She has done well with brushing, nail clipping and looking into her ears. She doesn't have a mean bone in her body and has done well with the other dogs. However, she does have quite the nose and is always looking in tall grasses, brush and areas in our barn for critters. I am certain if she saw something she would be gone in a heart beat. She did find a deal dove near our driveway and could not get it out of her mind. She did drop it when I told her too. She does well with indoor cats. She is does great with other dogs both female and male. She would love to have a dog to play with in her future. She tries to get Huey to play but he is a stick in the mud.

Lilly came in today from an owner surrender. She is a bit on the timid side with dogs and kids. Has done fine with my cat. More information to come.
