Ms. Purple's story
3/22/043 Lyla's mom sent some new pics of her enjoying life with Goliath and her foster brother Toby (available for adoption, click on his link for more info). We hope you enjoy these as much as we do!
updated 12/06/03 Lyla is becoming quite a buddy girl. She likes to throw her water out of the water bowl before drinking it, take a drink of water and then pick up her water bowl (with the water in it, now on the floor) and bring her bowl to the living room. She makes Goliath cry almost daily because she is starting to play more aggressively. She jumps on Goliath and actually will butt chests from time to time. She runs around in circles like Goliath does, then forgets where she is and usually runs into something. She can jump up on the couch and loveseat all by herself and she jumps down too. She climbs up on my mother's bed too, just claims she cannot get down, so she cries until I help her down. She makes me laugh all day long. She is enjoying digging holes in the backyard from time to time. I guess you can say she has came all the way out of her shell.
I am so glad she is with us. Her and Pai (cat) are still establishing their relationship. Sometimes they play together. She is definitely keeping Goliath on his toes. Lyla and Pai got a bath on Saturday and Goliath got his bath on Sunday, so they all smell clean. Lyla, Goliath and I all sleep together at night. She is very spoiled.
I know this may sound weird, but I swear her extra eyelids are retracting more. I seem to be able to see more of her eyes than before. She is just starting to run down the stairs. She loves to be hyper and run in circles or run around like I said before. I wish I had a video camera because she would make you laugh so hard with her antics.
Anyway, I will talk to you soon and hopefully I will be able to attend the next support group meeting in January. Maybe if Santa gives me a camera for Christmas I can send pictures.
Talk to you soon,
Cheryl, Lyla, Goliath and Pai.
PS. Tell Marco his sister is crazy!!
ADOPTED 11/14/03 Lyla went to her "forever" home today where she got to meet her BIG brother, Goliath, whom she promptly let know exactly WHO the boss was going to be :-) These pics are priceless...enjoy!

10/03/03 Lyla now weighs in at 29 lbs. She loves to wander around the house checking things out. Her favorite place is the bathroom where she finds treasures in the trash and one of her favorite toys, the toilet plunger :-) She can be persistent when she wants attention and will either nudge you with her nose or sit down in front of you and "paw" you to get some.
Lyla is quite vocal and enjoys "talking" to the other dogs, especially if someone has something she wants. However, if no one will listen, she'll simply "tell her story" to something else, like the swimming pool. She enjoys playing with the other dogs, but if they get too rough, she simply leaves the scene and goes off on her own. She can be quite independent around the house, but gets a little scared in a strange place, like the Vet's office.
Lyla is great about going in her kennel and will sometimes walk right in if the door is open. She enjoys sleeping and is a little slower to wake up. She has been learning to swim and when carried across the pool, insists on swimming back to the steps by herself. She even swam by herself once, going in on her own, swimming a circle and then right back out. Lyla's adult coat is starting to come in and it appears it will be fairly short and straight. Her cute red nose now sports a few freckles right in the middle.
Marco & Lyla
Marco and Lyla get along great and would do well, if adopted together. They will go their own separate ways to play or explore, and then you will find them curled into one another, sound asleep.

Here are some pictures of Lyla having fun with all the other Aussies!
