Border Collie Cuddles with Toy Monkey – Awww!

Tom took this picture the other night. Lilly likes to sleep on her back in the evenings. Sometimes, she brings one of her plush toys along. Here you’ll see just how much she loves her KONG Braidz Monkey that the fellas gave me when I toured the KONG factory in Golden, Colorado, earlier this year. It’s beyond cute.

Even though Lilly is now 7 1/2 years old, she still looks very puppy-like to me. No wonder I often call her my “baby girl.”

It looked really sweet when she was sound asleep, but Lilly always wakes up when she hears the camera turn on.

That is such a fantastic picture! She’s also kind of looking at you like “Our love is a pure one! Don’t judge me!”

So adorable.

Lilly is so adorable and she will always be your little girl! I saw a Border Collie mix on the news the other day as a representative pet from the humane society. Looked exactly like Lilly!
