Arrival Story: The cousin of a lady that worked with my husband bought Lily as a puppy. She named her Mia. Two days later the original owner decided she could not handle the puppy. "Mia" was being taken to the animal shelter one night. My husband made the decision to take her in right then and there, because the shelter had just had an outbreak where about 1000 animals had died. So he brought her home, we renamed her Lily and she has become my doggie soul mate. Coincidentally, she was born about the time I became pregnant with my miracle babies (twins). She was my calming source during my pregnancy and I'm so thankful she came to us, even though sudden and unexpected.
