PetSugar: When did you get your dog and what's her breed?
mieko14: We met Lily in November of 1998 and instantly fell in love with her, so she came home with us that very day. She was part of a litter of six Parson Russell puppies, and as soon as we saw her little fuzzy eyebrows, we were smitten.
PetSugar: What's your daily doggie routine?
mieko14: Lily is now nearing 12, so while she still has the occasional terrier energy streak, she spends much of her time leading the life of leisure and enjoying her golden years. She goes on a morning walk with my husband, wolfs down a quick breakfast, sunbathes on the deck in the morning, naps on "her" guest bedroom bed in the afternoon, and takes a walk with me in the evening after work before dinner. Then we veg in front of the TV.
PetSugar: What's your dog’s favorite food, pastime, and treat?
mieko14: Lily attempts to enjoy just about anything you put in front of her (edible or inedible). But she especially loves Spam, bacon, chorizo, and other processed meats (offered sparingly). Outside of sunbathing, her favorite pastime when she’s feeling spunky is to whip her knotted rope toy around her head like she is breaking the neck of a small animal.
