Lily was one of the happiest dogs I’ve ever known. The way she would perk up when she would see me or my husband—her big brown eyes would sparkle and her huge elephant-like ears would fan out with her constantly wagging tail. She had a way of making you feel like you were the most important thing in the world and like she had been in our lives forever. We had so many great adventures together. We hiked in many dog-friendly parks and had our favorite trails that she would zoom along forcing slow people to get out of her way, but she would always stop and check in with me to make sure she hadn’t gone too far. We frequented many beaches from Big Sur, Carmel, Monterey, and Moss Landing with several in between. Lily glued herself to my side, following me everywhere in the house and was exceptional off-leash outside. She loved playing with the ball, any ball, or just carrying one around and she even had one with her on her last day. I can’t even begin to describe how much we miss her. She left an indelible mark on our hearts and we are so happy to have had her in our lives no matter how short it may have been.
