I have had other pets, but Lily was “the one.” She was a mini schnauzer that I got from a rescue organization when she was just 4 months old. She had 2 owners previous to me who had surrendered her because she was too “wild” for them to put up with. I guess they didn’t understand puppies and that with love, consistency, and patience they will eventually become a wonderful member of the family. That is what happened with Lily.
I couldn’t have asked for a more loving, loyal, smart, and funny little dog.
Sadly, I had to make the painful decision to put her down on 8/11/21, she was 16. I will miss my little pal forever, but I’m so glad that those other people didn’t see her potential so that we were able to find each other. I loved every single day we had together, I just wish it could go on forever.
