Being told I'm not allowed to attack household plants...or eat them; Being told I'm not allowed on the couch...or the bed...or the coffee table (but, I'm gonna keep trying to convince my parents that it's ok); Getting to the park and there are no other dogs to play with.When I grow up I want to:

Be a professional food taster.
Lily (11 weeks)Likes:
Going to work with my Mom (She has a box for me to nap in when I'm there), helping my Dad work in the yard (especially smelling the lilies, in fact that's how I got my name), and running away with the beach towels while my people are in the pool because they get so excited.Dislikes:
The leaf blower, the vacuum cleaner, and being told not to eat the lilies.When I grow up I want to:
Be able to catch a squirrel in Kenwood Park. Also, I will know what people mean when they say "sit!"
Milo - nickname "Fuzz" (6 months)Likes:
Attacking my old, ornery sister, going on insect safaris in the house, taunting the squirrels on our porch, playing peek-a-boo around corners, but mostly I love to lick my owners' faces at 4 in the morning! I am also proud of my regal, purebred Siberian heritage, which means that no one in the house is allergic to me.Dislikes:
Not being able to go outside, and getting sprayed with water for climbing my owners' new couch. Mostly, I hate being lonely when I'm left alone.When I grow up I want to:
Be an active outdoor kitty that protects the back yard garden from audacious rodents.

My big shark toy, walking around Lake of the Isles with Lyla (Springer Spaniel), and wrestling with my cousin Stormy (a Blue-Merle Sheltie like me - she is 2 months older, but I'm bigger).Dislikes:
Having to go inside, being carried when I can walk just fine, and Canadian Geese.When I grow up I want to:
Be Mayor of Loring Park!

Salmon treats, snuggling on the sofa after dinner, and nibbling the hardware on all of our doors.Dislikes:
