Mary, Pat, and Lola

Mary, Pat, and Lola

It is no secret that we love to laugh around Taurus McNeil, and few clients make us laugh as much as Mary and Pat with their "little" girl Lola! They always come in ready with jokes while their little goofball runs to the back to see her friends. Several years ago, they were watching the Westminster Dog Show and saw the Spinone Italiano. They immediately knew it was the breed for them! They first adopted Oliver, Lola's older brother, and then found Lola a few years later.

Mary says Lola is "a very loving couch potato". She just wants to spend all day hanging out with her people and going for an occasional walk. She loves every person and animal that she meets, though her feelings are easily hurt if she is ignored. She will get on her belly and crawl up to smaller dogs and then play hard with dogs larer than her! She hasn't yet managed to get a cat to befriend her but she never quits trying! Her favorite game at home is to prance around with a toy in her mouth making "woo woo" noises at her parents! Once it's time for bed, she gets a piece of cheese and then snuggles up in the bed, claiming the middle of course. She does have one funny quirk, she likes to turn around at doorways and walk through them backwords! Mary says that Lola is the most loving dog she's ever known and her best friend.

Sadly, Lola has had a few leg injuries and is currently healing at home. Her mom says that she is missing her regular Playdays and all of her friends, especially Harvey and Fiona! We are sure missing her and can't wait for her to heal up and join back in the fun. We love when they share their pictures of Lola in silly costumes and look forward to their annual holiday cards. Taurus McNeil just isn't the same without Mary, Pat, and Lola and we can't wait for them to come back.
