Throwback Thursday – Lily

Meet Lily, the star of this week’s throwback Thursday.

Buddies Pet Insurance Office Dogs - Throwback Thursday - Lily6-year old Boxer Lily is big sister to Office dog Podge, who featured in last week’s #TBT.

Lily came from a breeder based in mum Clare’s home town of Rothwell, when she was just 8 weeks old.

Lily is toy mad and loves nothing more than a squeaky chicken or ball, however they do not last long as she tears them apart and the squeaker is no more.

‘Lily loves to swim and learned at an early age at East Carlton Country Park. She chased her squeaky ball into the lake and ran in after it. She got out of her depth and naturally did the doggy paddle.  She can often be seen doing that now on Saturday and Sunday mornings and absolutely loves it.’ Says mum Clare.

Lily is very trainable and intelligent and picks up on words and commands very easily. You only need to say something a couple of times and she will learn them and act on them.

‘Her latest one is “work”. Since she visited the office last week, she thinks every day when I say I am going to work, she is off on another jolly to the office as she loved it.  She sits by the back door crying at her lead.  So now I have to say ‘Mum is going to work …. Lily another day’….and when she is coming in I will say is ‘Lily coming to work’ and she will know it’s her turn.’ Adds mum Clare.

Lily behaved super well during her first visit to the office and the team were more than happy to add her and sister Podge onto the office dog rota.

We are always on the lookout for #FriendsOfBuddies to feature in our posts. If you have a dog or cat, and would like to share their throwback photos, please email Becks @ Hello@Buddies.co.uk.
