#119 - Our Friend, Lily



Meet our new friend, Lily. She is a beautiful puppy who is barely 3 months old and is a mix between a beagle and a golden lab.



Isn't she lovely? She moved in across the street from us last week. Our neighbors, who love animals very much, lost their beagle, Sprint, last year to old age. JD and Ringo were sad, too, because Sprint was their best friend. He was over 15 years old and they were devastated when they had to make the decision to put him to sleep due to his failing health and suffering. But now they have this new ball of fur and joy in their lives! I think Sprint must have sent Lily to them so that they could always remember him, but still help another rescue dog in need.



It appears that Lily and JD are already falling in love. We will have to keep an eye on this budding romance.



Lily loves to visit Ringo and JD in our yard. They even garden, inspecting the tomato plants and digging in the corners to be sure that everything is in order.



After gardening and playing, everyone relaxes in the shade. I think JD is about ready to sneak a kiss before Lily heads home for lunch. Ooooh puppy love!
