Rest in Peace, Lilly
Lilly Hawn was the original canine heroine of Champion of My Heart. She became famous for a number of things, including being incredibly fearful of the world at large, surviving all manner of medical scares, including 2 separate rattlesnake bites to the face and paintball poisoning that resulted in technicolor vomit.
You'll find her life documented in blog posts between April 2007 and December 2013.
Unfortunately, Lilly died after a 23- month fight for her life -- following a severe rabies vaccine reaction. Here are a few of the most important posts from that very sad stage in the story of Lilly Hawn.
