Happy Birthday Lily

Happy Birthday Lily




On February 15, 2010 my doggie sister Taylor went to the Rainbow Bridge. Two months before her 15th birthday she decided it was time for her to go to her friends at the bridge.

She was a wonderful, great and loving dog!! For the staff of course, but also for Buzzer -my doggie brother- and for all us felines.


A few months later the staff adopted another doggie sister, Lily. She was then almost 3 years old and desperately needed another home. We became her 4th home, but this one is FOREVER!!

Lily is a sweet, playful, very smart and happy little dog, and friends with all the kitties and of course Buzzer.

I am her Bestest friend – we sleep together and play together. But sometimes she’s only a little bit too naughty with me. I’ll show you those photos a next time…

    Lily is beautiful! Sorry about Taylor having to leave for the Bridge.

    Hi Gucci ::waving paws::

    ‘tock’ is the backside, rear, bum, whatever you like to call it but kitties in the CB like to call it ‘tocks’. Most likely not found in dictionary or translation engine.

    The time is flying by and yes, I am growing up. I will be three in January.
    I was sorry to hear that Taylor sent to the bridge. I have seen photos of Taylor and what a beautiful doggie he is! Keep her close to you in your thoughts and in your heart. She is with her other siblings that have been waiting for her to join them. I know they are running and playing together furever of pain.
    What a cutie Lily is. I look forward to getting to know her better.
    Love the look of your new place and so happy that you are back. My mom isn’t working for me as much as I want but she usually does the wordless Wednesday and a photo on Sunday. I have been visiting a little but have lots of catch up to do. Keep in touch.
