Lily and Mojo came from the same foster, Cheri Zaiger. Lily arrived from Georgia just in time to see her first snow. Lily had been abused and Cheri had made great progress with her. When Randall from the transport service placed her in my arms, she put her paws around my neck and she has been a joy ever since. During the ride back, we discovered the first of what we call "Lily'isms", when you rub her flank or she wants up on the bed, she does three-legged pushups with her right rear leg straight out from her side. I call her my little "Love Tick" because she likes to be cuddled so much. She used to run to the back bedroom whenever a loud noise would occur on TV for hours, but now comes right back.
In the morning she is not so shy, when the alarm goes off on a workday, she knows it is her time to go for that early morning run. She talks while I put my shoes on, and when she is let out, runs back and forth between the living and family rooms barking, a flash of hound in the dark. She brought joy and companionship to the last months of our coonie Sadie's life. Lily has pretty well grown accustomed to having Mojo around already, his puppy ways have brought her out of her shyness and they enjoy no holds barred play sessions inside and out.
Besides playing with his sister Lily, Mojo had a friend Ron that came to
visit last night. Ron and Mo probably played close to three hours without
hardly a break. I would have thought that would have been enough but he was
ready to go for a run with his Dad and sister this morning. Then he and Lily
played almost nonstop until we took a friend to Dulles. They did great in the
car together for the first time. We had a small dinner party last night;
everyone commented that it was like Mojo had been with us for years! He is
such a good fit, we love him and couldn't be happier!
Thank you everyone
for all your help so we could get our hounds!
With major gratitude,
