Friday's Reflection - Lily Pumpkin Pie

So, I put off this blog post for a few days because I just felt I was on a run of sad posts.  So after giving you blog readers a couple of days of happy cards, I'm fessing up that we said goodbye to our Lily Pumpkin Pie on Tuesday.  There's nothing worse, but it was her time and I vowed not to let her suffer in order to keep her with me any longer.   Lily's FAVORITE time of year was winter, so wouldn't you know on Monday night....snowflakes fell from the sky?  On Tuesday morning she got to lay outside in the snow for a bit too.  It made me happy that she was able to enjoy some snow on her last day.

I thought I'd show you a few of our favorite pictures of our 'first born'

This is Lily during her first week home with us.  We adopted her in December 2002
from Pet Rescue in NY  - which is a GREAT rescue group!!  She came up from West Virginia with two other siblings.

Yes - we did have a first birthday for Lily and Hayley (Cindy's dog)

Lily always had the best head tilt!  Here she is with Nolie

This is one of my all time favorite shots. First, because I was able to catch the action. 
Secondly, Nolie looks like the most viscous animal on the earth (which couldn't be farther from the truth)
And third - Lily's doing her Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon move

Lily didn't always love going to the park like Nolie and Layla...but she'd sit for a pose 
as long as needed if 'C-O-O-K-I-E-S' were involved.

She didn't mind a close up either

And this shot is from this summer taken on my cell phone. I just think the pool reflection is awesome.

So Rest In Peace little girl.  We will see you again.

Thanks for your visit!

I'm sorry I am so slow commenting. I have been super busy with work and then too tired to do much blog hopping/commenting in the evening.

Thank you for sharing these lovely pictures of Lily. Her face is so pretty and expressive. I know she enjoyed her time as part of your family.
