Finally, something to celebrate! Happy birthday, Lily, my love!
How would we have made it through this past year without this beautiful girl? Thank goodness dogs don’t wear masks because there have been many days when that pretty face is the only thing that buoyed us from lockdown to lockdown.
It doesn’t seem that long ago that we went to pick out our puppy. How to choose? We just knew we wanted the one that would cuddle up, follow us around and lay quietly at our feet.
That, um, is not the one we got.
We got the one that will follow bunnies, follow lizards, follow seagulls, follow gophers right down their holes and end up with a snoot full of dirt and follow treats to the end of the earth. But follow us? Meh…not so much.
And good luck following her…
Somehow, the tables got turned with Miss Lily. We’re the ones obediently trained to serve her and that’s just how she likes it.
She brings us joy every single day and wow, what a gift that has been this past year.
She is nothing we expected and everything we needed.
Today (kind of like every other day) is all about her.
Maybe, just maybe, next year there will be a Lily party.
