Lily


She came to our dear friends Steve and Jewel’s farm at Easter time lost and abandoned.  They took her in and named her Lily and loved her very much.  She became a wonderful farm dog.  Mrs. T    occasionally fed Lily when her owners had to be gone. Now, some years later, hard times had come again.  Steve has passed on from pancreatic cancer and Jewel has had two very serious fall requiring home heath care. She is very very frail having type 1 diabetes ,stroke and a heart attack  home with serious illnesses.When it rains it pours, as they say. Now Lily has come to live with us. She has adapted very quickly to life in the suburbs. Lily is a good girl…..

  2. Even as your friends' condition has to be distressing for you, I am sure knowing their beloved Lily is lovingly cared for means so much to them.This comes with a prayer for healing.

  8. I am very happy for Lily and for the two of you. I think this is one of the reasons lots of older folks who would love a dog, don't get one. What would happen to the dog if . . . The luckiest thing in the world happened to Lily!

    Cheers,
    Jo, Stella and Zkhat

  14. Wow, this is a story with three blessings. My biggest fear is my pets outliving my usefulness. You have given your friends peace there. Huge blessing. Lily has a loving home and you have a sweet warm fuzzy to help ease a gigantic loss. Wonderful!!

  15. Lily is a very lucky girl...more than once she found kind humans who provided her with a loving home. Good for both of you because I know you have missed your companion, Baron. It's hard as we grow older, we must adjust to what life deals us. Sometimes unplanned but pleasant changes come our way. BTW, I love your new masthead photo. Snow is beautiful but there is always the possibility of too much of a good thing and I do hope things warm up for you soon.

  21. Lily is beautiful and so blessed to have you to live with now.

    Thank you for your recent visits to my blog. After reading your profile, I just have to tell you that I'm currently on my third reading of the unabridged version of "The Count of Monte Cristo." I'd read an abridged version of the book numerous times before I even realized there was another version. It's my all-time favorite non-Christian book.

  23. Sorry for your friends' misfortunes, but how fortunate that they have such wonderful friends as you all to take their Lily. A win-win-win for the people and the dog.
    Or should that be win x5?
