Izzie here is named after a character in Grey's Anatomy and like every Labrador, she has both a chilled out yet hyper side to her. Izzie keeps herself busy mostly by sleeping and snores in the progress as well which is quite amusing to us! She also is extremely obedient and she's welcoming of any new additions to the family, surprisingly!
Breed: Labrador Retriever
Age: 3 Years and 2 months
Owner: Wijesuriya Family
What's the story behind the name you've given?
At the time we got the pups, we were all addicted to Grey’s Anatomy and Ammi was a big fan of Izzie (Katherine Heigl) and we named her after that character.
What are meal times and bath times like?
She is very obedient and very calm most of the time, but when she hears the word “food” she gets really excited and jumps up and down waiting for it. Similarly, during bath times she stays still and when it comes to the drying part, she gets into a hyper mood and runs all over the house.
Does she do anything out of the ordinary which fascinates you?
Not sure, if fascinating is what we’d like to call it, but if she wants to get into the room she knocks on the door.... hard! She will knock on it until someone opens the door. She also loves to jump on the bed and snuggle her face into the pillows. Then she just gets into frenzy and rolls on the bed, putting down anyone else who is on the bed.
What is her most favourite fun time activity?
Sleeping! Not joking. We have this Barcalounger sofa in the room and she would just get onto it and sleep as she likes to and snores like an old grandma while at it.
What is the naughtiest thing she has done?
Recently one of the drains was cleaned and it was rather open and Izzie went and jumped into it and had a mud bath in it. She was entirely black when she came out of it. We were surprised that she did that but we knew she enjoyed it.
How did you find her?
Through a paper advertisement.
How does she react when you've returned home?
Comes near us wagging her tail with our other puppy and waits for a head pat.
What's the best thing about her?
Her obedience. She is such a chilled out dog when she needs to be and can be fun when she gets hyper. She is such a great cuddle buddy to have as well!
What was the most unforgettable moment that you shared with her?
It was actually after losing our other pet dog who was her sibling, we got a new pup and when we brought him in and introduced him to Izzie, she got so excited that she ran around the table like a mad fellow. We knew she was excited to see her getting a new friend and it was rather nice to witness her excitement.
