my dear sweet lilly has left this world to frolic amongst the flowers of doggy heaven.
lilly lived a pampered life as a grand champion show dog with the attitude to match. she had a fabulous formal show name that escapes me now, something little lil of birch point. when she wasn't winning the hearts of heartless show judges, she was cuddling with little seven year old karleigh at home. she was my first puppy all those years ago. who would have thought she'd live to the ripe age of 94!
the highlight of my life (back then at seven years old) was when lilly had a batch of eight little teensy tiny puppies. from that batch ,born on prom night, we gained angus. he was also wonder-dawg but we'll save that for another day.
so bon voyage to ms. lilly. you were wonderful and a little sassy. you had a very strong personality and didn't take shit from anyone. we miss you already.
