Lilli: Whippet /Terrier mix

by Carol
(Waterford, MI, USA)


Almost 2 years ago I was looking for a dog to adopt after my Lhasa mix developed an inoperable mast cell tumor and crossed the Rainbow Bridge.

Best Buddies Pet Rescue in Waterford had this small, skinny, mix on their website and I felt compelled to meet her. I took my cat and my grand-puppy to the adoption event to make sure they would all get along.

I found out that "Wags" was found in Ohio and at 18 pounds was underweight, but otherwise healthy. Since the cat and grand-puppy were fine with her and she with them, Lillipup was micro-chipped and came home with us that day.

When she first saw all the squirrels in the neighborhood she made such a ruckus it sounded like someone was killing her, she wanted to get them, even when they were 20 feet up a tree or on the telephone wires.

Since then I have learned about lure coursing (she loves it), added 2 foot of chicken wire to the top of my chain-link fence after she jumped out after a racoon (she has no fear and she seems to have springs in her hind legs), and found out that she still has found another way out so she's stuck on a tie-out in the back yard (until I get all the holes plugged if possible).

So we go to the dog park where she has a grand time running and looking for squirrels in the trees. I love my smart, now 23 pound, sleek, running, jumping Lilli.
