Faces of the “Paws in the Park” Walk

This year’s “faces” of the “Paws in the Park” are Lilly and her “sister” Lousia. They were perfect doggy models at their photo shoot and will be leading the pack at this year’s walk!

Lilly is 13 1/2, she’s a yellow lab/husky mix and we adopted her from RISPCA in 2006. People are surprised that her left eye is blue! Lilly enjoys going on walks and visiting with family. She spends her days lounging around the house and barking at anyone who goes by. Lilly has vacationed at the beach and she’s even chased the ocean waves. She’s such a sweet dog and she’s the reason there are now 5 dogs in our family.

Louisa is 3 years old and she’s a Catahoula leopard mix. Louisa is the newest member of our family; we adopted her earlier this year. She loves to play and tennis balls are her favorite! Louisa is quite the lady and she can often be found with her front paws crossed. She’s Lilly’s 2nd in command of the Neighborhood Watch and is always ready to play! Louisa’s left eye is blue too, just confirming The “L” Team is the perfect match.
