Lily, Social Butterfly

amywink August 27th, 2012

This weekend was quite the adventure for Lily as she had her first trip to Taipan Station in a long while. This Sunday, we headed down and she finally got to meet Will. In the summer heat, he’s been off in the shade of the deep brush and sometimes not even visible. Of course, I have been ignoring him unjustly since my time has been consumed with his half-sister, Blessing. But things are calming down as we approach the start of the fall semester and I can get back to a much more regular schedule of visiting–and I hope riding/driving, etc. This Sunday, Will was upfront and right by the road so we took the time to hop out and get to know each other.

Lily, though she has met PLENTY of horses at Francine’s, was Not Too Sure *loose* horses were safe at all and she thought she needed to give him a lot of woofing as a warning to be a little cautious with her.


He seemed amused and remained calm:


Don’t they look good together? It’s like I chose the breed for how she’d match the horses–which I certainly did not, though it is an very nice bonus. Should make quite the picture when I get the pair and the carriage dog all dressed up together.

She also go to meet Windy, Lisa’s mare.


Then we headed up to the house to meet the pack of Taipan Station. Not every dog came close but Rufus and Chloe (there are 3 others) came to check her out:


Then, we faced the biggest challenge of the morning:

Cookie. Jack Russell Terrorist.

Lily plied her charms and we *did* get a little further into Cookie’s circle but it’s going to take a lot of time, treats, and patience to get Cookie to be comfortable with Lily….not for lack of Lily’s efforts!!


And really, Cookie can’t help it. It’s her nature….we’ll get there one day.

    The girl gets around! Love the shots with Will. And you can totally see the tension in Cookie’s little body. But Jack Russell’s are basically 93% tension anyway, I suppose.
