After we lost Gouda Lily mourned for quite awhile, right along with the rest of us. Until then she had never been the only dog in her home so it took some adjusting for her. Since then she's really come into her own as "the dog" in the home and I think she's doing a great job. She puffs her chest when anyone comes to the door and eagerly intercepts anyone stopping to say hi to R on our walks.
Lily is a wonderful dog mama to R and they really have become best friends. R becomes giddy with excitement whenever she hears the tags on Lily's collar shake in the next room. She proudly points to Lily and exclaims "doggy!" as soon as she sees her. R routinely sneaks snacks to Lily which is a daily struggle. I love watching their friendship develop and get a total kick out of their interactions.
Happy 4th Birthday to our sweet, patient, and WILD Lily! We love you so much and here's to many, many more birthday steaks.
