It just doesn't seem possible...could it really be my fifth birthday today??!! Yep, mommy assures me it's true. I was born five years ago this very day.
I don't remember much about that day but mommy tells me I was the only girl in a litter of five puppies, and that I was born last after all my brothers had been born.
The breeder was a very nice lady who took good care of our mommy and all of us puppies. She really liked me and wasn't sure she wanted to let me go, even though she put an ad in a magazine about us five puppies.
When my family called to ask about us, all the boy puppies had been spoken for and it was just me that was left. GOOD THING!! Otherwise maybe I wouldn't be with my family! When the breeder decided that I could be adopted by them, it changed the course of my life...and I'm SOOOOOOOO glad!
My family came the very next day to pick me up, even though all my brothers were all still there (they were being shipped to far away places like Denmark, the USA and Croatia). So I was the first one to leave our mama. I was pretty shy and not sure about it all at first.
But then my new furless brothers and sister started hugging me and cuddling with me and everything changed!
Oh...and then there was my new furless mommy!!! She was SOOO good to me and just looked into my eyes and said, "Lily, you belong to us now"! Well that did it. I just knew life was going to be good with this family who loved me so much right from the beginning!
It was a two hour drive home, which I spent cuddled up on somebody's lap at all times...ahh, that was bliss! Then all of a sudden, we were stopping and I was being taken into somewhere new...the place that would be my furever HOME!!
I met my furless daddy then and knew right away...he was going to be the alpha dog I'd always wanted! So strong...so loving...so firm...just what I wanted!!! He made me feel safe and secure.
So that's how life for me REALLY started! I live with the best furever family in the whole world! I'm a lucky little girl and so happy that I've already had five great years with them! I hope for LOTS more!!!
