Hank, showing his strong relationship with Ladybird, went to a dog whisperer in order to keep Ladybird off of the vicious dog list and from being put to sleep. The dog whisperer is comparable to a yoga instructor that Hank once went to see, the type of person Hank Hill would rather not have anything to do with.
Bobby Hill also has a good relationship with Ladybird. He was once discovered, by Hank, dancing with Ladybird. Hank wouldn't allow it, only to end up going behind Bobby's back and start dancing with Ladybird himself. Ladybird was temporarily given to Bill Dauterive when Bobby was found to be allergic to dog dander in the episode Hank's Choice, but was able to return to the Hills after Bobby is put on medication.
Ladybird is famous for saying a lot through her silence. She seems neutral about most everything that happens to the Hills, although she is always there to comfort them when something horrible happens.
