Re: My Little Lilly

It has been hard putting the words together with sadness I feel for losing Lilly, I will in time. I will write about the emotional connection we had. It was very deep. I still cry for her as I still cry for Tess. I think about the words and the tears come streaming down my face.

Re: Ginny "Not Enough"

Ginny's not "home" yet. Tomorrow will begin Ginny's freedom run. Her chances were next to none to be adopted, although many shared her, she only had hours to live. She is a city gal. She has no idea of what her life will be like. There is so much for her to experience, so much freedom, creeks, hikes...

Re: Ginny "Not Enough"

I am not yet finished with Lilly's story, however, I am starting another story with another girl. So many people were involved with Ginny's rescue. I saw her post about two months ago. There were lots of shares, lots of comments of how beautiful she was, how sweet she was, yet no one stepped forwar...

Re: My Little Lilly

I am continuing my story of My Little Lilly. Lilly passed away the late January. This will be a cautionary tale & a tale of love. There are many stories I want to share. This little girl was the braves of Chows, she was my constant companion. There are stories to come, not all at once, but only a li...

Re: My Little Lilly

Lilly has turned into a bossy Chow Girl. She has come so far from being an anti-social autistic timid Chow. She reminds me when it is time to go to bed, that has been going on for some time. Lately she has been waking me up in the morning (not for a potty trip). Our bed is really high, she puts her ...

Re: My Little Lilly

The recent rescue of Shandy from the Carson California shelter, made me think of my Lilly and how far we have come from that first night. For months Lilly acted like an autistic child, staring at the wall, not wanting interaction (she did follow me around) & hiding in the shadows. Her tail was down ...

Re: My Little Lilly

We have unleashed the beast! Lilly has learned how to bark & protest. I know that Chows are supposed to be quiet souls, but Lilly doesn't understand. She announces herself when we go out. She protests when Mike goes outside in the early morning hours. She barks at him when he talks to me in the morn...

Re: My Little Lilly

Poor Lilly hates to go on car/truck rides. Some unpleasant memories from the past I guess. Now she seems to enjoy it more, we have been "camping" as we call car/truck rides now. She hated the words; ride, load up & go for a ride. Her body tenses up when Mike picks her up to go in the truck. It was s...

Re: My Little Lilly

Lilly is the sweetest. All our time and patience has made a big difference in her life. She is smart in the ways of the Chow. This summer I was freeing our creek from moss and debris. Lilly selected part of the creek for her's. It is a little tributary that has a moderate to slow flow. She would dig...

Re: Tess & Me

After taking Lilly for a walk in the snow, Mike asked me if I was in a good mood. Yes, I was in a good mood, to be shattered in a moments time. Mike had been clearing our road of snow & Earl was coming up the road. He told Mike that he had put Buddy down yesterday. I knew it was coming, Buddy could ...

Re: Any Recent updates on Lily from Me&Tess

I really should start posting on Lilly's site. I think writing about her in the context of the here and now & I do have memories to share of my little Chow girl. One of the things that I missed that I did with Tess, was take her, pulling her to me. I wanted that so much from Lilly. Now she lets me d...

Re: Any Recent updates on Lily from Me&Tess

Lilly is doing better with Mike, but she still has her moments. She accepts treats from him and he has taught her to smell them first before she takes them. She also likes to go on longer walks when Mike is with us. On our walks she likes to take the lead now. Before she was more submissive, or she ...

Thank you for asking about Lilly. Lilly is my sweetie pie. She has change so much as we are approaching out third Christmas together. She loves cuddles & hugs. She wags her tail more and more. I ask her "Lilly are you OK?" and she answers me with a waggie tail. We went on our first big outing to Gla...

Re: Floppy Ears?

My Tess had one ear that had a break. Lilly's ears are small, thick, with a forward tilt. Your chow's ears look like Lilly's. Reminds me of a bear's ears. Both beautiful chow girls. Your chowling is beautiful too. "Small, moderately thick, triangular in shape with a slight rounding at the tip, carri...

Re: YOGI BITES

I just wanted to add, I cried lots of tears in the beginning. It was very frustrating and it made me wonder about why we adopted Lilly. No one told us about her beginnings. Now I know what we did was the right thing and Lilly has a forever home with us. Please don't give up on Yogi.

Re: YOGI BITES

It is going to take a lot of work on your family's part to bring Yogi around. Unfortunately, some chows go thru abuse when an owner does not understand the breed. Then the poor chow is passed on to someone else. The damage that was done can be undone. My own Lilly was passed on. She attacked me one ...

Re: yogi

I would be wary about giving tranquilizers. Our Lilly wasn't socialized either, & possibly abused or neglected emotionally. Our vet came out to the car to give Lilly her shots & I put the muzzle on her right before our vet came out. The second time we took her to the vet was for toenail clipping. Pu...

Re: are they call chow chow ?

The cream/blond in pictures 1 & 2 looks almost wolf like. The old fashion Chows were larger, had longer legs & were longer in muzzle. My Tess was of that build. Interesting.

I feel like I should have posted this earlier. When we were moving from Southern California to Montana, we brought our dear Tess with.

Lilly stood on a rock at the head waters and watched a leaf float out of sight. She listened to the soothing sounds of the waters flowing over rocks and pebbles. She wanted to remember the Creek of Waters Ever Flowing and vowed that someday she would return. Lilly took a deep breath of the piney fo...

Re: My Little Lilly

I haven't posted in a while about how Lilly is doing. To the point, great with caution. We are having our adventures. We still stay on out property for our walks. Winter was very cold & we had a lot of snow. That actually made it easier to walk amongst the fallen trees from Fall's big winds. Now, fi...
