It's not really an introduction as this little lady has been with us since June but I realised she has never had a formal introduction.

Meet Lilly everyone.

She's Penny's niece and is almost the spitting image of her (the young, healthy Penny, before she had her first bought of IMHA/ITP). However, she is so completely different in personality.

Lilly is the most vain dog I know. She will throw a strop if you brush her hair without brushing hers as well. She holds out her paws to be massaged and touched. She loves having a bath and wiggles in joy the whole time.
She's got a proper voice on her. She grumbles and whines to me as I go about my day, squeaks in happiness when I come home and, when she is picked up, will rest her head against mine, eyes closed, to savour the moment.

She's also my running dog, my gym buddy. We go running together on Friday mornings, up the hills of Greenwich Park (where we had our UK Pupapaloozas). She's also accompanied me to my Crossfit gym a few times, watching in confusion as we slam heavy weights on the floor (from the confines of the office or a crate so she doesn't get in the way).

She is a joy. And she has helped to heal our hearts after Josie and Penny left such a gaping gap. We still miss them both, but Lilly brings us so much happiness, that the ache is less prominent.

She is a little doll! I'm so happy for you to have found a new buddy. She sounds just perfect for you. And I know just what you mean about the hair brushing! When I try to brush my own, Jennie will put her front paws on my hip and 'knead' me until I give in and brush her instead.

May you have many, many happy years with your beautiful Lilly. :love

congratulations! You have a smooth-talker on your hands. I love cocker talk. Cici is a sound machine too. It's so much fun. Wishing you many, many years of love and fun times with Lilly.

What a cutie! I love a big personality in a little dog, don't you? It sounds like you have found a buddy who likes to do the same things you do, so what a bonus! Congratulations, and enjoy that little imp.
