She's a little bit fearful of the world but I think she was meant to be here because she really doesn't care about the flash.:D

There is nothing cuter then when the eyes are looking down and you can see the whites of the eyes like that,,,,,,,,

Prin
November 28th, 2006, 07:40 PM
Yep. :) We just picked her up.

She was SOOO funny in the car. She balled up behind my seat and became a load of bricks when we tried to get her out...:D

Now she's exploring.:cloud9:

Prin
November 28th, 2006, 07:41 PM
No, I have to be a good foster and not fall in love with her too much.

But she's adorable. When she came out of the vet, the first thing I said was "uh oh..." :D

Prin
November 28th, 2006, 07:59 PM
Jemma doesn't mind. Boo minds. :D The little one is a bit bigger than Jemma, but is so similar to Boo. My man just took them out because the new guy was getting too riled up. I've got to get a video of it. She's hilarious.:D

She's already posing too.:D

So funny, I'm re-reading Jenn's email from this afternoon, she said Venus was lucky cause she had found a great foster home, two dogs and a young couple... I never actually thought it was you ! Though when you think about it, it was kinda obvious ! :D

November 28th, 2006, 08:42 PM
Well that answers that question, lol....... I was waiting to hear if all had gone well at the vet's office, although I thought meeting her in the flesh she'd be hard to say no to!

MC...... wasn't sure if Prin was going to spill the beans fast or not so thought I'd let you be surprised lol

As for the name, please feel free to give her a better one.... I like Lily myself as it's delicate and soft and she's in a place right now in her life where she's very passive and needs a kind hand so I think it suits her perfectly.

As for her background, we'll say she came from a spot that is less than stellar who may find themselves with a visit in the very near future if you get the drift. In the interim, we have built a medical file on her and will help her original owners pursue whatever actions they wish to take as long as it is not to the detriment of her well being. Meaning she will never have to go back to whence she came.

The original couple who purchased her meant well and were not well informed about certain types of places. They are better informed now.

Thanks to MC(Inverness for those of you who don't know) for letting us know about her. There is no way that I would have said no to her as I have a very soft spot for Newfs being as they are an extremely close second to Berners. Many people had a hand in helping her and the reward will be to see her blossom in to the boisterous gentle soul she was meant to be when she came into this world. Sounds corny but it's how I feel about her.

Thanks to Prin and her man for being generous enough to open their hearts and homes to her. She needed the attention, care and patience that they can both give her right now.

Heavens, got a bit long winded. I apologize for that. :o I'm just so thrilled that life will be good now for her.

Prin
November 28th, 2006, 08:42 PM
prin, where are those side-by-side face photos of Lily and Boo? :o

Gonna take a bit to get those... They have to get friendlier...:D

technodoll
November 28th, 2006, 08:45 PM
no I meant, take the one pic you posted below of Lily's face, and put it next to one of boo's posing in a similar way , so we can compare :)

Prin

Ohhh.. I thought you meant a real life side by side.. ok... I'll try.

Prin
November 28th, 2006, 08:53 PM
BMD, it's my (our) pleasure. I have a hard time saying no to a passive newf like this one. She's dead asleep now in the hallway. :cloud9:

Here's another (really dark) movie...:D

Prin and her man are ol' softies for the wee ones. Such a sweetpea ~ she looks a lot like Bridie did when she was a pupster ~ same little funny white toes and beguiling smile. Enjoy!

But a lily is white. I'd call her Lola. She's sure cute. :cloud9:

Prin
November 28th, 2006, 09:42 PM
Ok, so by morning, there'll be housetraining advice here? :o I'm so afraid of her dropping a monster load somewhere... We're watching her like a hawk. She acts like she's never been outside before. Sticks to us like glue when we're outside. Hmm.. Hope I can get her to go out there... She has to go out there...:o

Prin

November 28th, 2006, 10:14 PM
What a cutie! I love how chatty she is. And that growling sounds verrrry familiar... hehe Good luck Prin!

As far as housetraining, take her out about 15 mins after every meal and when she wakes up and after playtime. We just took ours out routinely once an hour. It's a pain, but it's so worth the effort. btw, how big will she get? OH, one more tip, if she does poo in the house, pick it up and take it and her outside where you want her to go. I've used that tactic too. It's supposed to teach them that THAT'S where the poo goes. Make sense? Anyways, good luck! :cloud9:

P.S. -- If I'm telling you redundant info, feel free to ignore me. :D When we got Sasha she would stick to us like glue. She still hates to go outside. I think cuz she was outside for a while. Anyways, she would be standing next to me wanting attention. I would cross my arms and look up and totally ignore her. It took a little time but she eventually would wander off and do her business, then I praise the heck out of her. She is starting to go better and better outdoors. Ok, I'll stop now. Toodles!

Prin
November 28th, 2006, 10:15 PM
Thanks Brandy. :) Do I ever get to sleep? :D

I'm thinking based on her paws and her head that she still has a lot of growing to do. Her paws are bigger than Boo's. :eek:

Thanks Brandy. :) Do I ever get to sleep? :D

Sleep? What's sleep? I know with ours, they slept in a crate right by the bed and if they so much as whimpered out the door we'd run! Stinks when it's freezing outside...

Prin
November 28th, 2006, 10:20 PM
Yeah, it's a little freezing out now... Sucks because she's either wandering or sleeping, so I don't know when she has to go (because she's always wandering).

She's funny though. Every now and then she gets a fit of excitement and runs into things for a few seconds and then stops.:D

She really needs a bath too... Smells like vet and has some UNC's in her fur... (unidentified nasty crunchies).

technodoll
November 28th, 2006, 10:25 PM
prin that settles it... boo is a newf/lab/+mystery dog mix :D the earset & shape & length, the eyes specially, the way he walks, his coloring of course... i mean just look at those two faces how similar they are :)

you won't want to let her go, i can already tell :D

Prin
November 28th, 2006, 10:47 PM
Yeah, her thigh fur is Boo's but a little longer. :cloud9:

I just want to sleep now that Brandy said I'm not allowed.:D Sooo tired. If Lily gets to sleep, I should too. She sleeps all bendy.. Like a puppy. I just hope I get some good enough pics to get her a forever home fast.:fingerscr ;)

Yeah, I shudda been.:D

I think she's a good Lily. But I also think she manipulates people... She pretends she's all scared, but really it's a way to get the peeps to back off so she can go chew on their shoes.:frustrated:

TeriM
November 29th, 2006, 01:10 AM
OMG she is adorable. How did you ever get the man to agree? Don't worry you'll soon figure out her own personal potty signs and be able to rush her out. Girls are usually easier then boys anyway (in my experience) because it is way easier to see the squat then the little lean forward that the boys do.

Prin
November 29th, 2006, 01:24 AM
omg the lean forward, lol. So true.

I have to update this thread now...

This is what I just posted in the TJT..


http://foolstown.com/sm/ura1.gifShe ****!!! She **** outside!!!! WOOOOO!!!! http://foolstown.com/sm/ura1.gif And she peed too!!! http://foolstown.com/sm/ura1.gif

On the downside, I was wrong about newfs... They have all the stubborny stuff that Boo has.

She did a few zoomies outside (so funny) and then sniffed the load Boo just left (hey, it's dark, and I'm not going to feel my way around with my hands, if you know what I mean), and then I guess she got the idea and went too. :cloud9:

This is what the little one looks like "de-pooped".:D
Aren't I a dainty girl? I'm lovely!

I would adopt her if I saw that last picture! And she is one big pup! So glad she did her business outside. How did the night go? I hope I didn't scare you with the no sleep deal. lol I didn't realize she was 8 mos, I thought she was 4 for some reason. Prolly from watching Animal Cops, they had 4 month old black lab puppies, sooo cute. Anyway, off to work I go!

BMDLuver
November 29th, 2006, 06:12 AM
Great photos Prin! I'll put them up tonight when I get home from work..

Lily is like having a pup as she only knew the outdoors until about 3 weeks ago. So she'll take a bit to get used to the confinement of the house, thus the pacing. But that's a huge step she went to the bathroom outside for you with you there. Means she's trusting a lot more. She's petite for a Newf but I think she'll be doing some fair bit of growing now that she's in a home and being fed better.

You can reach me at the office if you need me Prin. I've got to get ready now! Give her a big hug n nice smooch for me, smell or no smell, lol. :p

Prin
November 29th, 2006, 10:52 AM
She's still adorable. I got up when my man got up, just to let her out and she peed again outside. Then we all went back to sleep for a while longer, until I woke up with a newf head on my chest. :cloud9: A little early, but still, very cute. She's definitely a morning doggy. Let her out, and there were full out zoomies again.:D

Might want to hold the "very little kids" on this one BMD. She almost took me out a few times and the walls are definitely feeling some pain.:D She's one clumsy bugger. It's like having Baby Boo again.:cloud9:

She's fine with the house, but it's the freedom in the house she's not used to. She sits between my island and the wall, the narrowest part of the house. She stays there most of the time when she's not wandering. And EVERY time I bring her out, it's a struggle. She just doesn't want to go out and I have to pull her a bit. :shrug:

When you pet her, especially on the chesty, she has a hard time not falling asleep...

Who knows maybe the man will fall in love before she goes up on petfinder... But I doubt it.. Even if he does, he doesn't want a third doggy and it looks like Jemma and Boo don't either (for now).:D

I showed her how to sleep on a towel yesterday. Yeah, a towel. She kept lying on the tile, and I know newfs, with the fur, and all that, but our floor is COLD. So I showed her how to lie on a towel and now she never gets off it.:D

Is she on the web yet ? It will be busy with all the phone calls asking for her. I guess if one would like to adopt instead of foster,one would have to make up one's mind fast. But one has bf.....and other kids to think of :( But one can stay up 24/7 and spend plenty of time with this little girl...

Prin
November 29th, 2006, 11:52 AM

Hmm, another "accident" in the house... :frustrated: I blame the man though. He came home, she was all excited and I told him to let her out, but when she wouldn't go on the first try, he gave up. So I thought he brought her out, but he didn't. :frustrated: Twit.:frustrated:

For some reason she (so far) only pees on the only crap, crap floor we have left, so that's ok. :D

Oh and then we had a food-tastrophe.. The shopping bag of food from the bad place doesn't close (because it's a big stiff shopping bag :rolleyes: ), and it fell on the floor. The door was shut because Lily's a food hound but because of the slope of the house a lot of the food rolled under the door and out to where the prowler was waiting. lol Anyway, she got a bit extra, but that's ok, because I have no idea how much to feed her.. :D And she's very labby- always hungry.

She's SOOO gentle though. When she takes her cookie, it's all lips. :cloud9:

Prin
November 30th, 2006, 12:50 AM
But they love them. :evil: They're pretty expensive for a destroy immediately present though.. This one we got in the gift bag thingy they sold at costco last year. They went on sale for $9.99 after Christmas, which is the price of just the tennis kong in them (so I bought two sets).

She's a cutie though... Even if I'm sleep deprived a little.:D

I brushed her today. She didn't mind all the pulling except on her tail. Now she's all fluffy.:D

Boo is funny. He pretends he doesn't care, but today he ran a flyer guy off our property when he got too close. He's never done that before.:o Boo: protector of the bitches.:D

Oh and Jemma- Lily admires Jemma like crazy, but Jemma doesn't get it. People never know when they're cool.:rolleyes:

It really is like having two Boo's around now. They both get up to so much "no good" together.

oo they played together today! I forgot! Maybe I have video of that. (So much for going to bed early...)..

Sorry techno- the google ones will be clearer but they'll only be up tomorrow probably. I'm gradually switching out the photobucket ones for the google ones as I get them.. Google's just better quality.:shrug:

Jemma almost played with her. She has started to do the husky body-checking thing with her. lol Lily keeps running into Jemma, so now Jemma's checking back.:D

They're all out like a light now.. Waiting to cool down to eat some breakfast... Yeah, a little late, but they had to exercise before it starts raining again.:frustrated:

Prin
December 3rd, 2006, 12:02 AM
lol you guys with the gold...:D "ooo shiny!" :D

Not too many belly rubs yet- she still had her staples in till today... She was supposed to have a bath today and I was supposed to consequently post some froo froo Lily pics, but with the electricity out, hot water was in short supply...

And tomorrow it's snowing...

So Monday will be bath day, I think.:D

Still no sofa for her (her choice), but I did teach her how to use a pillow today.:D

I got her to be ok half on the floor and half on my lap in the car today on the way home from the vet... She wasn't as nervous but was still very nervous. It was the first time I brought her out in "public" and the vet clinic was busy!! She got SOOOOO much attention from everybody. Makes me worry that she'll be gone before my man decides on anything.:o

She gained about 11 lbs since they last weighed her.. Not sure if that was before she left or when they got her though. Either way, it's a good thing. She's at about 67lbs now.:thumbs up

So that's the update for today... There are movies, but I'm too slow tonight to upload anything.:o

Does that mean he's falling in love with her too?

Prin
December 3rd, 2006, 12:24 AM
Hmm... Sometimes yes, sometimes no. He's very resistant.:D Plus we keep missing her incredibly subtle "have to pee" signs and she keeps peeing on his new piney floor... But she's too adorable though to not fall in love with her. She is such a sweet soul and so similar to Boo in so many ways. If you love Boo, you love her.:D

We just have to get used to the puppy thing in the meantime (whether she finds a new home or stays here). But I reminded my man that even though we worked our hineys off fixing up this floor- he doesn't even like it. :D I do... That's why it's still as is. So he shouldn't get so mad. ;)

ok, nuff about that- she's a foster dog!

She's up on petfinder, so any day now...

She's on supplements too now. After a few days of playing with my doggies, she's sore and has a hard time getting up. :( She slept nearly all day today after we got back from the vet so tomorrow she should be ready to play in the snow! :D

TeriM
December 3rd, 2006, 12:33 AM
Can you put an area rug on the area she seems to pee on? Riley kept peeing on our rug by the kitchen sink for a while so we just kept throwing it back into the washing machine. He was the king of subtle for peeing so we eventually just got used to the actions/times (big drinks of water, play times/ dinner/ waking up after naps) that brought on peeing and kept taking him out.

Sorry to hear she is sore from playing. She might actually be with you :D for a while because of the HD warning on her listing.

Prin
December 3rd, 2006, 12:36 AM
:fingerscr ;)

Yeah, we put a thick (read: absorbant) doggy blanket there... I figured if she slept on it, she wouldn't pee on it... Then again... Where she comes from, everything goes.:o She gets it though when we go out just for business and no playing. She just needs a break now and then.:shrug:

But geez is she a chewer! A little less every day I think, but Chewy McChewerson nonetheless.:eek:

LOL, good idea (who's training who in that house?). I had a friend who left her pup to long (not a good mom, not enough toys or attention :sad: ) and he chewed a huge 1 foot hole in her drywall :eek: so he could get into the rest of the house.

Yeah, I haven't had anything like that so far...

What I'm realizing though is that I am missing 4 kongs. FOUR! All missing. And not missing by my doggies-my doggies take care of their toys. :frustrated: Gonna have to go buy another one when the man's not looking.;)

Nope. I'm thinking somebody "borrowed" them either at the park or from my lawn...:frustrated: 1 black, 2 cool kongs and a training kong. All gone. Oh, well. It's about time Lily gets a toy of her own.:)

You know that pic of the two angels touching fingers? This is the clumsy doggy version of it.

And some more movies, in case anybody still cares.:D

Jemma is happy the camera is on her and gets very upset when her fame is interrupted.
http://video.google.ca/videoplay?docid=5983731199402838293

This was the scene about 10 or so minutes before Boo broke my nose. He was lying down like that and I went to take the toy (he had moved on to a soccer ball) and then he jumped to his feets and BANG! :D
http://video.google.ca/videoplay?docid=3600748307807594749

And this one, this one is the BEST! :D Jemma finally played with Lily (out of the room, of course, so we wouldn't know), and she just was like, "Oh you think you're fast, eh? Faster than... THIS?! How about THIS?!!?" :D

Lily sucks up to Boo to get the dental kong (with the cookie in it)... Need volume for this one to hear Boo's funny growling/crying noises.:D

And Lily messes with Boo's head in this one. What a goof. They're both goofs.:D
http://video.google.ca/videoplay?docid=-3531488255117488531

Don't worry btw, we were watching them like a hawk, just in case Boo got too annoyed. :)

Boo likes his women. :D He just sits in the window all day now protecting them.:D Ooo and this morning when I sent them out (it was too cold for me lol) Lily wouldn't go in the back yard on her own (merr!) and Boo brought her. :eek: He walked slowly so she saw him and he took her back. He's so sweet. He had no reason to go himself.:dog:

I think Jemma and Boo probably sense that you are just helping Lily, and they are doing their best to help too:D And one day they will be your only pups again! (unless you can change your mans mind:fingerscr )
But just think if you keep Lily, you may not have enough room to take in another foster in need:shrug:

OMG I love the one where Jemma's showing Lily how FAST she is....I had to laugh out loud at that.
You could just see what Jemma was thinking just through the looks she was giving Lily.
"Can you do THIS? How bout THIS? And now THIS!! Ha ha ha ha...your kinda slow huh?"

They should join Riverdance or Stomp or something with fancy footwork like that.

But just think if you keep Lily, you may not have enough room to take in another foster in need:shrug: hmm... Honestly, I find it too hard to foster...:o Lily needed somebody and she's a newf baby, so there was no question, but I'm going to be devastated (if) when she leaves. I'm more of a "help them by giving them a home" type of person, even if the process is much slower. :o I promised myself I'd never hurt myself like this again, no matter how selfish that may be. But I am/did anyway...

But they'd make a good story, no? One SPCA special, one "free to a good home" and one super rescue. :o (good story as in saving them one at a time...:o)

I know fostering is super important and all fosterfamilies are wonderful,but I don't know how you do it,this girl,more than the pups you had before,just seems to belong with Boo and Jemma and they are a beautiful trio of black dogs.

Chico, you're so sweet.:) I don't know either. Fostering is so hard. Even with the other newf puppies who were already adopted before we even got them, we had a VERY hard time giving them up. With Lily it's going to be terrible because I know she's everything I would want in my next doggy.:o I think all foster homes who really do foster are so amazing.:o :grouphug:

Not sure how smart she is though... She's still closed up so it's hard to tell where the boundaries start and the intelligence stops, you know? :o
