Furry Fridays: Loving Life in the Fab Lane

Brought to you by Steph and Becky!
Today we have the cutest little ball of fur and Jo. Thanks Jo!

Hello! I'm Jo from Loving Life in the Fab Lane Blog.

I was thrilled when Becky from B is for Becky blog asked me to be a guest on Furry Fridays. There is nothing I love more than my little ball of fur named Lily.

My husband got Lily for me a couple of months ago.
We rescued her from what looked like a little puppy mill.  She is a 15 month old "full blooded long hair chihuahua." they say. But we didn't care.  As soon as we saw the conditions she was in, we wanted her!

Listen y'all:
This is the prime reason you should have children! If you don't, you end up being the crazy chihuahua lady who dresses up your dog and acts like your dog is your child!

Our first family photo on Thanksgiving.

Lily enjoys walks at the park and running through the leaves.

Kirby and Lily
Lily already has several friends: Elle Mae, Hemi, Otis and Kirby.
Kirby is my Mom's dog.  He is an Irish terrier. Every time I go back home to visit my family, Lily gets super excited.  She and Kirby play for hours.

My Aunt Rhena is the best! She made all of Lily's bows.  She is also the one who potty trained Lily in one week. Wait, what? Shut the front door! That's right, one week! We use puppy training pads. I was a little anemic, feeling terrible and had so much going on with school, potty training her was a nightmare.  I was on the verge of tears and my Aunt offered to take her and potty train her.  She did an amazing job because it is very rare when Lily has an accident!
(If you have any questions on puppy training pads feel free to ask!)

(You know you have officially crossed the cray-cray line when you dress your dog to match yourself!)

Lily's first snow!!! Her reaction was WTF!?!?

I have only had Lily for 2 months.  In this short time, I feel as if I have had her forever.  I just love her so much.  Once I am finished with school I think Lily would love to have an older sibling from the local Humane Society.

Thanks Becky ans Steph for letting me share Lily's story :)
