Lilli the Wonder-dog

It is just over a month since I last posted about our puppy Lilli.

She is now just four months old and continues to grow like crazy. In a month she has gone from 10.1 kg (22.27 lbs) to 16 kg (35.2 lbs). She is losing the puppy cuteness and is starting to look like a gawky teenager.

I had to share these piccies I took of her having one of her few baths. It is finally getting warm enough to bathe her a bit more frequently.
She is still small enough to just about fit in the laundry tub but not for much longer!
She doesn’t look like it but she actually loves the warm water of a bath, she isn’t at all sure about the camera!

Why the wonder-dog? She is just finishing up at puppy pre-school at the moment and the instructor called her that tonight.

Lilli can already:

Wait politely for her food,
Hold for a wee until she goes outside,
and is more or less heeling when we go for a walk (more or less because things in the wide world can be very distracting for a puppy)

Not bad for a baby.
Are we proud?
You bet!

She is so cute!

Oh, she's fabulous! What a cutie. Is she a lab? Labs are very eager to please, so it doesn't surprise me she'd learn tricks quickly. They also have REALLY nice temperaments.

Ah, this little girl is growing up to be just as smart and beautiful as your two-legged girls!
