A Tribute

Hello blog world!  I know it's been a while since I've been here and to honest I just haven't had the heart to post the past few days!  Last week we said goodbye to our lab, Lily.  Needless to say, this little lady has been in a bit of a funk over it!  Lily had been a part of me for almost half of my life.  In our eyes she was everything a dog should be!  She was kind and loyal, playful and spunky, smart and athletic, loving and nurturing, and just a flat-out good girl!  Lily was Super Dog!  She loved the lake, tennis balls, happy meals, babies, doggie daycare, hearing "Good Dog!", walks with John, road trips, and us!  And we really loved her!  For 13 years Lily brought us nothing but joy and for that we are so thankful!   
 Lily was a surprise to me in June of '98!  I named her Lily because she looked like a flower with her bright pink colar and big purple bow!  I literally held her for the first 2 weeks!
"Such short little lives our pets have to spend with us, and they spend most of it waiting for us to come home each day.
It is amazing how much love and laughter they bring into our lives and even how much closer we become with each other because of them."
-John Grogan
