(Ottawa Dog of the Week for March 2nd/09)
“My name is Libby, I am a Beagle & Lab Mix. Here I am at about two months old (where my fur is darker on my face) but I will be turning 8 months old at the end of January. I am getting lighter and blonder as I get older. Everyone thinks I am a pretty gal!
I am very smart but also very stubborn; its the hound in me. I live with two brothers Piggy (Shih Tzu & Lhasa Apso mix) and Bouboule (Shih Tzu). I also had a sister Slinky, she was a Shih Tzu (who I did not know as she passed away before I arrived). My Mom and Dad got me last July and I have been taking my place in my new home since. I love to play, chew alot of things (got in trouble with the sofas; can’t help it my teeth were coming out). I love taking walks to the park and running in the snow (love that white stuff!). My favorite spot in the backyard is on the deck; standing over the flower planter and the railings so I can see into the neighbours backyard and bark at their cat! I like to lie down by the stove when Mom or Dad are cooking; sometimes they drop things on the floor so I help with the cleaning by eating those pieces. At least they don’t have to take out the vacuum cleaner so I save them a lot of work 😉 !
I am house trained; it took a while but am a lot better now. I know the sit and stay command, and Mom is training me on other things. Still, there is too much to remember but I am doing good! I love to be around everyone. Bye for now” – from Libby (with help from my Mom, Louise)
