Collared: Lilly, Betsy and Sophie

<B>NAMES:</B> Lilly, Betsy and Sophie
<BR><BR>
<B>OWNER:</B> Howard Silverstein
<BR><BR>
<B>AGES:</B> Lilly (far left) 8 years, Betsy (middle) 5
years, Sophie (far right) 2 years
<BR><BR>
<B>HOME:</B> <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="PLGEO100100603120000" title="Pikesville" href="/topic/us/maryland/baltimore-county/pikesville-PLGEO100100603120000.topic">Pikesville</a>
<BR><BR>
<B>BREED:</B> Shetland sheepdog
<BR><BR>
<B>BEST TRICK:</B> They each have a specific trick
that they do. ... Lilly knows how to jump
through an agility course in record time. Betsy
can go to a playground, run up the steps and
slide down the sliding board all by herself ...
It's the funniest thing to see. Sophie can walk
on her hind legs for extended periods of time.
<BR><BR>
<B>FAVORITE ACTIVITY:</B> All three love to take
naps but once that ball comes out, they are
alert and love to chase and return the ball --
over and over and over and over and over.
<BR><BR>
<B>FAVORITE FOODS:</B> They all will do anything
for dried piece of chicken strip. And I mean
anything. Almost.
<BR><BR>
<B>FUNNIEST MOMENT:</B> When I took all three
girls to the beach. They were running along
the water's edge when this huge wave
washed ashore. Once the <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="T50023003" title="Dog (animal)" href="/topic/science/dog-%28animal%29-T50023003.topic">dogs</a> were wet, they
didn't know how to act because their fur was
so wet with water and it was weighing them
down. They could hardly walk.
<BR><BR>
<B>THREE GIFTS:</B> The best time in my life has
been having these dogs as my companions
and friends. They are there for me when I
awake and when I go to bed at night. They
give me peace, stress relief and best of all, I
can feel the love radiating from their little
bodies. Had a dog all my life and if I was to go
back, I would not change a single thing.
