My most handsomest husband, Tanner has asked me to talk about some secwets. I'm sposed to tell you three. Problem is I'm sposed to have the pictures to prove them. Yeah right. My most evilist mom hasn't let me blog for over a month! So I am going to try and see if we can come up with three.... I know this post is kinda late since he asked me to confess last week, but since we were behind on blogging, I thought I'd post my most secretest of confessions.

Here are the rules: Make 3 confessions (Conan O'Brien style) with the pictures to prove them. Then nominate at least 3 friends to do the same!
First of all: It was my hooman pups' birthday and I sneaked some of the frosting off the can't really see where it is here in this picture because it is up on the top where it says "happy birthday". I guess I just thought the puppies were soooooo very cootie!!

Second......If I am hungry (which is most of the time) and my EVIIIILLL mom won't feed me, I knock over the food bucket and feed myself. This is what you call a doggie booffet. Notice Mr. Whiskers taking part in my boofet? I'm not so dumberest after all am I Mr. Whiskers???? huh, huh?!?

And lastly.....this picture shows a little bit of what I call "doggie heaven". Its a special place we go to once in a great while if I'm being really good. (We go there about once a week, silly girl!) It is my secret place where I can run off lead and chase rabbits and squirrels and snakes!! Mr. Whiskers comes too and its at my Grandma's house!! While the hoomans work to help Gran take care of the lawn, I run free...........and I come when I'm called and mom tells me what a good girlie I am. I like to go poo there because there are soooo many places! My gran says I don't go at home so I can go at her house!?!!!

Well, that's my three secrets confessions.. Not all that exciting. I wanted to confess my love for mom's hairdryer but I don't have a picture. Its hard for mom to take a picture of herself drying her hair and me loving that dryer up! Oh, and guess what! I had my birfday a couple weeks ago and I am now two!! I got some neat presents from my hoomans I'll have to post about. I got a stuffed flea!!

So now, I'm sposed to have 3 friends give their confeshons so, Maggie & Mitch if you are reading this......and girl girl, how about you???

Happy Birfday To Me!

'Ello fellow blogging dogs. This is Kendra, Lillie's hooman pup sister. Today on Septemember 7th, 1993 I was born. So that makes me 15!!!!! Dudes watch out I will be driving soon. HAHA. Anyways I took a lot of force to get Lillie to let me blog so I better make it quick. So today I got some of the bestest gifts in the whole world! From my mom and dad I got this really cool camera. But mom says I can't put pictures on yet. From my Grandma Cheryl I got the rest of my books. My friend got me started on this series called Twilight by Stephenie Meyer. You dogs and hoomans may have heard of it. Its pretty popular and it's going to be a movie. I was so happy I screamed!! I also got a Roxy Sweatshirt, socks and lots of money. I guess I made a haul. And at my church today my mom and grandma made me get up infront of everyone and they sang Happy Birthday to me.
Well maybe I'll get on again. But Ta Ta For Now. Thats what Tiggers say.

Attention, Attention everypup & their hoomans

Hello, everyone. This is a very important AND serious post. The information it contains is serious and maybe you even know about it. I might be telling you something you already know. Mom wishes she would have known it. Well, actually she did know it, but didn't realize it. The story goes like this......

Mom has a friend named Wanda (yes folks, she has a friend!) and her friend had a bischon named Codi. Mom was camping with Wanda a couple weeks ago. Mom asked Wanda who was watching Codi since no dogs were allowed on this trip. That is when Wanda told mom that Codi had died. Mom felt really bad, and Wanda proceded to tell Mom that Codi died of what they thought was pancreatitis and after he passed away the vet told him he thought that Codi got into sugarless gum. Mom didn't think anything of this until...... Fast forward to last night at the Gross house.
Mom took the hooman pups to do the last of their school shopping. In the checkout line the kids ask for gum. Of course they can have gum.....OR should they?

Now, you know kids. They LUV me. They LUV their stuff. I LUV their stuff. Kendra (who feels TERRIBLE) left her gum on the coffee table. You know, airedales....They are nosey and love to eat and sniff stuff out. Well, I found the gum. Now don't worry because I'm alright. There I was, minding my OWN business when boomerest. Someone slugged me in the headerest. I had that gum in my jaws, but darnest that Jordan got the nasty stinky (actually gooderest smelling) gum away from me. He took it to Kendra and she inspected the package....then she took it to mom. HMPH. I was NOT happy that they interupted me and my gum chewing. So anyhow, they got the gum away from me, like I said. Mom looked at tha package and it was totally destroyed. Then suddenly as though a lightbulb went on inside mom's head- she remembered what happened to Wanda's Codester. Now since the hoomans didn't know if I ingested the gum or not, (and mom checked me for fresh breath- none for me thanks) mom decided to watch me. She looked up a few things on the internet about Xylitol, which happens to be baderest for us doggies so don't even any of you think of stealing sugar free gum from your hoomans I am telling you this! Mom got a little nervous because everything she saw said to call your vet immediately. It also said that usually symptoms of (large quantities) ingestion occur in as little as 15 to 30 minutes. Since mom didn't really know if I ate any or not, she didn't call the vet. What apparently happens, or so mom says, that the Xylitol causes a drop in blood sugar, and can cause hypoglycemia (whatever that is) and seizures, as well as liver damage. She was really nervous, but she took really good care of me. She continued to watch me, and the kiderest cried because they thought something bad might happen, but I didn't appear sick. Which is good. But it was very scary for my family. Today I am still well, and mom is going to continue to keep an eye on me. We are thankful (or I should say I AM) that the littlest pupster, Jordan whackered me on the headerest to get that nasty stuff out of my mouth. AND mom says now, NO SUGAR FREE GUM! NO WAY NO HOW. We will not be taking that chance again. Please pass this information on to all your friends who may not know about this nasty xylitol. Mom wishes that she would have remembered it BEFORE she let the kids have the gum. For more information, go to: if mom KNEW what she was doing she'd be able to direct you there from here.
Now, I know my mom LUVS me, because she has been watching me like a hawk since this incident. I even slept in BED with her last night! She was so worried and I just took advantagerest of the sitchooashon. I'm eating ,drinking, and acting like a goofy airedale, and NO MORE GUM FOR ME!

Tanner watches too much HBO and Rhonda his mom doesn't watch her dogson very well AT ALL. I went to his blog and found this picture!
It says he's a PIMP. What the HECK is a pimp? Did he mean he's a PINK because he is wearing a PINK shirt? I don't think my husband is a PIMP.
But since he thinks he's a pimp, then I'm a SEXY GRRLLL. What'd ya say BOYZZZZZ???????????

BuZZed..............PART deuce

Well, I've had a few requests to post my post grooming picture, but I just can't get myself to do it. BUT, I do have something to share with you! You remember that girl that Kendra knows that was hurt in that fire pit accident? You all helped me send her lots of love and support and my HUSBAND Tanner asked you guys for a favor and you all came through? Well, they raised over $20,000.00!!! ISN't THAT aMAzing?? That would buy US dogs lots of doggie biscuits, but this money will help Taylor's family with the expenses that they are incurring. Anyhow, the MAYOR of our TOWN, said if they raised at least 20 thowsand doggers I mean dollars he'd SHAVE HIS HEAD!! and so, I bring to you, for your viewing pleasure, the MAYOR getting his head shaved!! and YOU CAN SEE IT! You would rather see Mark, Mayor of Sauk Rapids get his hair buzzed off then see me and how awwful I look. Mayor Campbell is such a great guy! Now, I'm going to go hide~!
Pee Ess: MAYBE I'll post a picture in a few days- maybe in a few days my hair will be grown out.

I can barely even get myself to talk about the following subject. You see, I am SO SO embawwessed about it. On Wednesday, MOM took me for a ride in the caw early in the morning. It was the SECOND trip to the Vet in less than ONE WEEK!!! Now, don't get me wrong, I LUV the vet, but I had NO IDEA what I was getting in to. So Mom dropped me off (tail wagging) and went to work. HOURS passed, and when she came to get me, I did not look the same. The reason why she dropped me off was she wanted the nice lady at the vet (the groomer) to "groom" me. I tried to tell that EVIL lady I did NOT need GROOMING, but she insisted. When mom picked me up she went all gaga over me, but I don't know why? I look AWFUL! I can't even post a picture of myself here. It would be like posing NEWD for PLAYDOG. I am so embawessed that I am going into hiding and I don't know if I ever will come out!

Important message!

I have an important message and I hope that you will all take a look at this:

Miss Kendra goes to school with Taylor, and she was burned very severely in a fire pit accident in April. She has had many surgeries and is a very STRONG and DETERMINED young lady! She could be an AIREDALE if she were a DOG!! Anyhow, there is an internet telethon on Wednesday, and if you'd be so kind to check it out and wish her well, that would be GURATE. The lady of MY house, doesn't know how to BLOG and because she can't BLOG my BLOG sometimes stinks like dirty socks. Anyhow, since she is BLOGGER illiterate she doesn't know how to put a link in here that you could just click on, but if you go to you will be able to view the live internet telethon. This will help the family and they will know that there are many people and DOGGIES out there that care about her! Otherwise you can go to and enter taylorstrand and you can read her story. She has a long road ahead of her, but has come a LONG way and is getting better and making ALOT of progress. Please add her to your prayers ! I knew I could count on all of my DOGGIE friends and their hoomans to help us help Taylor's family!! THANK-YOU!

I am not a POODLE for DOGS sake !!!!!

I know that I haven't been around lately.....and I'm really sorry. My hoomans went on vacation and sent me to jail (mom: uhm, I think it was rather like a spa, Lillie). I hearded that my husband the handsomest BT on the planet earth was missing me. I miss him too. Can't he please come visit me??? He could have come to see me instead of going to the BEACH!!!!
Anyhow, lately I've been attending several soccer events that my hooman pups participate in. I really love going to the soccer field and watching.......except when I get bonked with the ball!! That happend to me two times tonight!! So, now on to the point of this blog.
I sit at the soccer field with my MOM and I am such a gooderst girlie. I let peoples I don't know and kiddies that I don't know touch and pet me. Most of the time they ask my mom what kind of dog I am and mom will tell them. But for some reason there are some stoopid hoomans out there that seem to think I'm a POODLE!!!! No offense to you poodles out there, but I AM NOT A POODLE!!! I DON'T LOOK LIKE A POODLE! POODLES DO NOT HAVE BRoWN FUR WITH A BLACK SADDLE. Sorry...I was yelling but it irckks the he$$ out of me that people would think that I am a poodle. Yes, I have curly hair. Yes I am big like a standard poodle, but I don't have a poodle head and poodles do not have perfect ears like me or have a square head like me. I tried to tell these people by yelling (try barking) at them that I am an AIREDALE!!!
I am a bootiful, friendly AIREDALE that LOVES to go to the soccer field and be called an AIREDALE!!
That's all for now. I need to go settle down. All this venting makes a girlie really tired.

Tanner if you are out there I LOVE YOU AND MISS YOU TOO. I will try to be a better blogger but mom hogs the compooter and won't help me blog.
See you next time.......

Wedding Crashers? OR Goin' to the Chapel cuz I'm gonna see Tanner's mom and dad get married!

Ruby had the bestest idea! Ruby said that she would get aire ruby ready and take WHOEVER wanted to go to the wedding......urh "crash" the wedding of Joey and my cuterest husband, Tanner's mom and dad! Isn't that a GrEat idEa? They will be so exciterest to have us dogs there cuz we need to make sure that the WeDdinG cake is safe to eat and the other food is safe to eat and that the BeeR is safe to drink!! We wouldn't want the wedding couple to get sick at their specialist day!! SO, if you want to come with us, head on over to Ruby's blog, and let her know you want to join us!! The MOre the MerRier. I can't wait to see my little pooky bear, Tanner!!
Remember, it is proper ediket (what in the world is ediket?) to bring a present to the wedding and I think it would be most appropriate to bring an annOyIng toY for the boyz. That way when the NewLeeWeds want some alone time (have to keep this page family friendly but you get the idea.....) Joey and Tanner can take the annoying toys and pester the NewLeeWeds! So see you soon on AireRuby and we're off to the WeDding of the Year!!

HELP! Part III Joe Stains to the rescue

So AireRuby flew my two detectives in tonight...and it was a good thing too!I knew it wouldn't take Joe Stains long and he'd have the case cracked and my name would be cleared. It's ALWAYS the quiet, innocent looking one! We didn't even know he LIKED to play! Is that Madden's 2007 you are playing?
While Joe was off doing detective work, me and Tanner got to spend some quality time together. It didn't take him long at all to figure out that Mr. Whiskers ate the controller and blamed ME!!

Head on over to Joe Stains blog to see the "Master Detective" and tell him what an AWESOME job he did. Thanks so much Detective Joey! I really appreciated your help.

Now, where did Mr. Whiskers put that PS2 control? I think its my turn to play........
Many thanks also to AireRuby for the transportation!

HELP! Part two

So I know I told you all I needed Tanner's help. I REALLY did. Something was missing, and I knew there was only one man urrr DOG that could help me. I needed to get Detective Stains on the case and maybe just MAYBE he'd let Tanner help him out.

So, I'm calling on Detective Joseph Stains and his side kick Tanner to help me. I need AIRE RUBY to fly them in. This is SERIOUS business.



Sorry no pictures- mom's camera is broken. They'll probably blame me for that too..........

3 days post-op

Hi! It's Mr. Whiskers reporting for the little gimp again. Umh, I mean "sweet" Lillie. I am really getting sick and tired of having to wait on her ALL of the time. When mom and dad and the hooman pups leave, they make me be in charge of taking care of Lillie. She can get quite demanding at times! I'm sure glad its the weekend and the hoomans will be around now to watch after the little cripple. She's such a B-A-B-Y!!
I thought some of you may be interested in seeing some pictures of her. They are kind of gross so if you have a queazy stomach you may not want to look.

Mom is threatening her with a lamp shade if she doesn't start leaving the incision alone. For some reason she thinks she needs to wash it constantly. WHY she would want to wash something that looks like that, I do not know.
A message from Amy:
Thanks to everyone for checking in on us. It really helps us with what we are going through. Lillie is feeling a bit better- not so much crying and whining. It is very difficult for her to go into a sit or down position. She is doing well with toe touching with her injured leg, but occasionally will walk on three legs. She has adapted to the situation well. We try to keep her confined as much as we can. She is usually in the bedroom and we use a baby gate to keep her in a small area. Right now it is easy to keep her confined because she isn't feeling well, but in a day or two that may change. She is very much an Airedale and has a mind of her own if you know what I mean. Some of you may remember that I told you that Dr. Cal indicated her issue was congenital. He ended up putting three pins in her knee cap to stabilize things. She had sever malaligent of the patella (knee) and tibia crest (the tibia is the shin bone). He said that it actually was at an angle and very mishapen. They straignhtened it out- he said after they pinned it they could tell right away that it was in alignment. He said we were fortunate that her ACL didn't rupture because it was very irritated. Her left side also has this issue. He said she has a grade I/IV patella luxation but because the alignment is much better he doesn't anticipate future problems on that side, and that we should just monitor it. The good news of the entire situation is that this didn't occur because of trauma. When this first happened we thought it was because Jordan fell on top of her. She and Jordan like to play football and the game, as it is in real life gets a little rough. We just need to watch her and keep her quiet for the next 6 weeks. She has managed to really be able to do alot of things with three legs. She can go up and down the steps with assistance on three legs. Sometimes we use a towel as a sling to help lift her Rt hind leg. She doesn't really like the towel but will let us support her with our hands and arms. She is very tolerant most of the time. When she isn't tolerant is because she is hurting. Its amazing to see her be able to function so well with three legs.
If Lillie is feeling better she will post tomorrow. The big game is tomorrow and she was hoping to be able to "party" a bit with the family. We said she could join in the festivities but if she got too out of control we'd have to send her to her room. Have a great weekend everyone and thanks again for being so supportive to us!!

Lillie's home

Hi Everyone! Thanks again for checking on us. This is Lillie's mom. I just want to update quick and will post more when we have time. Lillie came home this afternoon. She is in quite a bit of pain and is very sad. I think she feels better to be at home in her own bed, but it is hard to tell what she needs. She seems very uncomfortable and anxious. Right now we have her on our bed (She let us lift her up there) and she is trying to rest. Occasionally she will cry out as though she is in pain. Sometimes she just whimpers. We'll have to see what tonight brings..... She came home on several medications; an antibiotic, an anti-inflammatory and a narcotic. We can't give the narcotic (Tramadol) until later this evening and hopefully that will help her rest. Keeping her quiet won't be too difficult tonight. Keeping her comfortable will. I feel so bad, I just don't know what to do. Jordan and I went to Petco this afternoon and got her a new toy. We got some chewies too but the ones we got don't take her long to chew. I need to find her something that will keep her busy. Well, I need to go. Dr. Cal said we need to ice her knee twice a day and its about that time. Her insicion looks very painful. I will take some pictures and post them soon. I just want her to perk up a bit before I do that. Jordan says her leg looks like a chicken leg- its shaved completely from her thigh to ankle. Thanks again for all the well wishes. We really appreciate it.
Lots of belly scratches to all you dogs with blogs.
Amy (Lillie's mom)

Update Surgery: Mr. Whiskers reporting

Hi Everyone:
Thank you for all the well wishes for Miss Lillie. It's Mr. Whiskers reporting on the little gimp. Here's the scoop. Lillie left today at 9:30 a.m. for her consultation with Dr. Koluk and hasn't returned. Mom just got home and informed us that they did infact need to do the surgery. She said that Dr. Koluk said that Lillie had a congenital deformity in her knee cap and that is why the patella was luxating (dislocating). It wasn't due to any trauma. The other knee has the same issue but not to the same degree- she probably won't ever need surgery on that knee (paws crossed) but they are going to have to watch it closely. The vet said that if they hadn't fixed the problem early that she would have blown out her ACL. Something with how it was sitting in reference to her knee. (Whatever the heck an ACL is). I don't have all the details but will let mom fill you in later, once she is feeling relaxed. Jordan and Mom went to see Lillie and mom was a little frazzled when she got home. Lillie was not resting alright, but was very anxious. The Vet had to give her some anxiety medicine (NOT MOM, LILLIE!!!) and then she calmed down and was able to relax. The Vet did say that Lillie was able to sleep for several hours. Lillie was pretty uptight and in some pain when mom and Jordan visited. They could hear her crying in the waiting room! The Vet did let her out of her kennel for some loving, but she was very uptight. She really missed mom and Jordan. She was being a cry baby....I mean, she was crying because she was in pain the poor thing! I really do miss her alot and am glad that she is going to be gone tonight......Did I say that? What I meant was I am going to miss her tonight and I can't wait to have her back! Mom will post more tomorrow. The little gimp will be home tomorrow sometime. Then it's back to strict bed rest for six weeks. Thanks for stopping by. Mom will help Lillie update tomorrow, or if she isn't feeling up to it I will let you all know how she is doing.

I am NOT a gimp!

So here I am relaxing in bed. It's been all I have been able to do lately. I am on STRICT bedrest until further notice. It makes me feel very saddest.

You know that I have had a very sorest back leggy. It isn't getting ANY betterest. Mom took me to the vet last week and they wanted to check my sore leggy and I said NO way man. Leave my sorest leggy alone!! SO, the vet said because my leg was still sore, I needed to see an orthopedic specialist. What the heck is an "Orthopedic Specialist"? Mom said
o-k, and they scheduled my appointment for Wednesday, January 30th.

I sure wish that my leggy wouldn't be so sorest. It is hard work hobbling around on 3 legs. Mom's worried about my good back leg. I can't go for walkies at all and I've gained some wait since I don't get any excercisest. I'm very very SAD........ No walkies no playing with Mr. Whiskers or Jordan. No nothingest.....SIGH.......
Note from Mom:

Lillie's leg isn't improving at all. The vet said the minute you flex it her knee cap dislocates. At home even after the slightest bit of exercise she is hobbling around on three legs. Sometimes she'll go down the steps and sometimes she won't. She isn't supposed to, but it is difficult for me to lift a 70# dog down the steps. She does know how to go down on three legs and I help her when she does that. She seems to be handling things pretty well but she is very quiet. She lays around alot, and looks sad. Sometimes she will get a bit of energy (thanks to the anti-inflammatory meds) but then she ends up paying for it later. She has been sleeping on her bed on the floor, and won't jump up on the bed at all. The only time she gets up on the bed is if someone helps her. The plan right now is for her to see the Orthopedic surgeion on Wednesday. Surgery is planned for 10:00 a.m. unless the orthopedist says we should continue on the same course we are taking now.

Back to Lillie:
So, I say to my friends keep your paws crossed that thingys work out the betterest for me. I don't want to see any orthopoodist or whatever it is. I want them to leavest my leggest alone. I say WHATSSSSUPP..........................Get your hands off me. Can someone come and kidnaps me from my home so I don't have to go back to the vetest on Wednesday? HELP!!!! TANNER!!!! ANYONE HELP ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!GIRL GIRL can you come get me in your girl girl mobile???

Happy Birthday G-Man!!

Today is a very special day, and we are having a PAWTY!! I won't be able to be pawtying too hard because of my sore leg, (mom said NO dancing) but I wanted to take a minute and wish my favoritest hooman BOY pup, Jordan (or as we like to call him G-man) a VERY Happy Birthday. Can you help me by wishing him a Happy Birthday, too?

Jordan is "10" today. We are having a pawty tonight with our family! I can't wait. I told mom I'd be a real good girl cuz my leg is hurt and I promise I won't jump on my Grandma's or my Aunt Laurie OR my Uncle Bill. Mom is busy cleaning the house and getting ready. I sure hope she lets me and Mr. Whiskers have a small bitest of cake, and she is making ROAST BEEF!! I sure hope I can have a tastest of that too!! I know there will be lots of food, fun, and pressies. I can't wait!!!!

Thanks for stopping by!! Sorry for no pictures but stoopid blogger keeps giving me an error. I will post again later to let you know how the pawty went. Mom said I can post about my sore leg another time because it wouldn't be polite to take over Jordan's post when it is such a special day! Maybe you guys can come to the Pawty too! Mom would be suprised to see all of you and our house is big so everyone would fit!! What do you think?

Love, Lillie

First of all- Here's Mr. Whiskers with an update about Lillie on day two with rt dislocated knee:
Today was a rough day for Lillie. She is using her hind right leg less and less. Most of the time she holds it up and walks on three legs. Mom is happy about that since she shouldn't be putting any pressure on her injured leg. Mom was concerned that she would try to go up and down the steps, but she seems to know that she isn't supposed to do that either. She finally is sleeping better. She had a rough couple of nights- as did mom! The vet called today to check on Lillie and stressed the importance of keeping Lillie quiet. She wanted to know how she was handling her pain. The pain pills don't seem to be helping much at this time. She is on Rimadyl. The vet said that she could prescrible something else if she needs it too. Right now it hasn't been too hard to keep Lillie quiet- you can tell she doesn't feel good. No more jumping on people or counter surfing. Mom cooked an entire dinner tonight with Lillie in the kitchen with NO jumping!! Hopefully with some much needed rest Lillie will get better very soon!

Since I have a sore leg I am dictating this information to my secretary!
  1. If I were another kind of animal what would I be: A Teddy Bear!! I LOVE to snuggle and I am so furry and cute just like a fuzzy teddy bear!
  2. My most favorite song: Girls just wanna have fun. Cuz I LOVE to have fun!!
  3. If I could live anywhere in the world I would live: I like it where I live but I'd like to be able to travel all around the world and visit all my DWB friends. Maybe I'd get an RV so I could drive aroudn the country and live in all sorts of different places and then I could go pick up Tanner and take him with me and we could visit his Aunt Patty since her state is kind of close to my state on the map!
  4. If I were a famous movie star/personality I would be: a girl Scooby Doo because I am always getting myself into interesting situations and I LOVE to eat and I'm pretty good at solving mysteries too. Plus chasing ghosts is really hard work and the hooman pups love ghost stories.
  5. Since I'm not sure what question 5 was I will assume it would be who would you want to be a spokesperson for. I would like to be a spokesperson for the food channel because then I'd get to try out all those good foods that they make and I know that MY Tanner watches the food network! And I love WHATEVER Tanner loves!

A very important message from Mr. Whiskers

Hi Everyone:
Its Mr. Whiskers blogging for Lillie. Sorry there are no pictures tonight. I have some good news and some bad news. The bad news is that Lillie injured her right hind knee cap and it is dislocated. The GOOD news is she is going to be o-k and she did not tear her ACL. THAT was really good news actually. The Vet told momma that she was pretty sure it was torn. Lillie is on strict rest for the next 10 days. Tonight she is pretty quiet because they had to sedate her to examine her knee, and take x-rays. Plus she is in considerable pain. She has been walking around on three legs. Occasionally she will bare weight on her injured leg. The vet said that if it isn't better in 10 days she is going to need surgery. Mom needs help with ideas on how to keep Lillie quiet. Right now, because of the pain she is pretty low key. She won't go down the stairs and is moving pretty slow. Mom is worried that once she is feeling better (and the pain meds kick in she will want to run around and play. Any suggestions from you friends would be greatly appreciated. Mom will update more tomorrow when Lillie is feeling better. Thanks for checking in on us!
Mr. Whiskers for Lillie
