The Golden Standard.

There’s a saying for when you take something perfect and try to improve upon it.

This, of course, was perfection:


Chloe left us almost a year ago, followed by her sister, Soho, and nothing has been quite the same since. A season of loss; a season of silence. All that freedom to come and go as we pleased, but none of it pleased us.

Thus, here we go, trying to match perfection, which of course cannot be done, but if you’re going to try to gild the lily, as that saying goes, this is a pretty good place to start, and so is that name. Please meet our new puppy, Princess Lily:

It wasn’t an easy choice! So much adorableness!


Here she is the day we  picked her out at seven weeks:

With her Uncle Dave, who along with Auntie Karen, got this ball rolling:


Saying goodbye to mom at nine weeks:


First day at home:


Meeting new friends Auntie Pam and Uncle Kirk:


So much for being penned up in the kitchen. She’s already queen of the castle, which I know surprises nobody:


You can’t improve on perfection. But I’m hoping we can gild it, with Lily.
