If you follow me on Twitter, then you know that Monday was a very important day.. it was the one year anniversary of Lily's adoption. I can't believe it's been a whole year, but I also can't imagine how I ever lived without her. I can tell you right now that living alone is 100 times better with my furry little friend around. Last week, my lover face Alexa posted an "All About Holly" about her adorable pup that had me laughing hysterically and I decided that it would be the perfect way to celebrate Miss Lily and of course she obliged.
Take it away Lillian..
Take it away Lillian..
The a to z of Lily Shenanigans.
a is for age. I'm 2 years, 3 months, and 3 days. Good thing you all have until October 20th to send me gifts. I like treats, fluffy toys, and blankets. No clothes please, I prefer being au natural!
b is for bed size. Mom bought me this thing she calls a bed, but I know it came from the cat section of Petco (seriously?!). I much prefer the comfort of her full size bed where I can lay as I please.
c is for chore you hate. You're joking right? I don't do chores. My Mom tries to tell me to clean up my own poop but ya right.. that ain't gonna fly!
d is for dogs. I love other dogs. I like to strut my stuff around the dog park and my doggy bff's are my cousins. Nemo is my favorite, but don't tell the other ones!
e is for essential start to the day. Sleeping In. Mom gets up at an ungodly hour of the morning so I snuggle further into the covers and rest for a few more hours.
f is for favorite color. I'm a ginger baby and the best looking one around! Red's my color and don't you forget it.
g is for gold or silver. I don't have a preference because I just realized I don't own an bling bling. You hear that Mom? You better step it up.
h is for height. I'm less than a foot tall but what I lack in height, I make up for in length. They tell me I am part Chihuahua and part Miniature Pinscher, but I think there has got to be some Wiener dog DNA too.
i is for instruments you play. I like to think of my mouth as an instrument that has many talents. Whining, barking, growling.. whatever it takes to get attention!
j is for job title. Ruler of the Shenanigans household sounds about accurate. Keep that one a secret from my Mom would ya?
k is for kids. No babies for this girl! From what I've heard they are alot of work.
l is for live. Denver, CO born and raised. When do we get vacations around here?
m is for married. Single lady over here!
n is for nicknames. So many you wouldn't believe it! Let's see.. Lillian, Lillith, Lillykins, Lily girl, Lily face. The more nicknames they more love right?
o is for overnight hospital stays. No ma'm! Healthy as a tiny little horse.
p is for pet peeve. When Mom is blogging and therefore not paying attention to me. Can you believe her?
q is for quote. "I'm sorry that people are jealous of me.. but I can't help it that I'm so popular!" That Gretchen Wieners she really knows whats up!
r is for righty or lefty. Silly humans. I think they meant "front paws or back paws". I prefer the use of my back ones so that I can jump up and scratch people's legs and force them to pick me up.
s is for siblings. Right now I'm an only child. I keep hearing my Mom say that she thinks I need someone to keep me company, but then I would have to share. I think I'll pass!
t is for time you wake up. I like to roll out of bed around 9 or 10am. Beauty sleep is a must!
u is for university attended. Haven't you heard of street smarts? I've got plenty of those.
v is for vegetables liked. When I go on vacation to my grandparent's house they always give me green beans and then I come home and get nothing. What's up with that?
w is for what makes you run late. My Mom.. figures. I'm always ready to go and she's running around picking up my stuff and staring at me like I should be helping her.
x is for xrays. I heard they are dangerous or something.
y is for yummy food. I only eat the good stuff so Mom buys me the kind with pieces of chicken in it. I've come up with a great technique of pushing the kernels out of the way and all over the floor so I can go straight for the chicken. Ya it leaves a mess but I don't clean it so who cares?
z is for zoo animal favorite. This used to be my favorite toy, a duck. I took it everywhere with me, even outside in the mud. Then one day it disappeared.. I have a sneaking suspicion that Mom had something to do with that.
It's finally over? Thank god. I've got sleeping and playing to attend to!
