    What a beautiful tribute to a beautiful dog, Lilly. It hurts so much when we lose our furry babies. She had a zest for life, and the frames showing her running towards the camera, of which I’m sure you were behind, is the way we should all remember her. Free from pain, and enjoying all the doggie things they love so much to do. It’s seems so crass to say she lived a long life…9 years doesn’t seem to be much at all. But one thing is for sure, she loved you and that’s a special love you don’t find with people. They accept you for you. You did what you could for Lify and she knows it with all of her heart. One day, I really do believe, we will meet up again with our beloved animals. Peace be with you and yours.

    Beautiful. What a life your sweet Lilly had. You brought both smiles and tears to me during that tribute, which is as it should be. Her love for you is so clear. A bond like yours and hers is incredible to see. Indeed, she will wait for you.

    Thank you for sharing this beautiful tribute.

    I loved that last shot of her flying across the field. I am so sorry Roxanne. If not for that damn rabies vaccine….
    She was taken too soon because of that one thing. I am so sorry for your loss.

    Oh those ears! Her shiny hair! Her zest! Her booties! Her lightly powdered nose! Her vitality! Her energy! Did I say her ears? Oh how we all love her ears!

    I cried through the video, but not as much as you did making it. Such acute grief, I can’t imagine! I suffered after losing my dog (while my own mother was dying) but you and Lilly – she had some special needs that you worked so hard to meet, day and day out.

    Let Lilly and you – and your devotion to each other – serve as a lesson for all of us.

    Thank you, always, for sharing, I hope there is more so we don’t all have to let go of her yet.

    I love seeing her.
