Is it just me, or is Lilly starting to look perhaps a tiny bit gray? I still call her my “baby girl,” and I still think of her as being young … but sometimes, I see just a glimpse of her age. (Lilly is 7 now.)

Either way, I’m so grateful to have my amazing, brilliant, beautiful girl at my side 24/7

Cute photos – black dogs are hard to photograph and you did a great job! She has such a sweet face 😉 And she still looks like a baby!

Beautiful photos! Beautiful girl!

(Is that a wasp on the flower to the right?)

    Sheryl … I just zoomed into that original photo, and I believe what you’re seeing is a dried up flower bud.

Beautiful-she looks happy!

Too bad you didn’t have any shots of Lilly with the poppies. The red would have looked great with her black coat.

Beautiful girl.

    You’re right, Pamela. I should have. By the time I thought to pose her with flowers, the poppies were past their prime. They are pretty, but they don’t last long in our summer winds.
