I have come across your very touching website whilst I am in the midst of harrowing grief following the death of my absolute rock, my beautiful lemon and white beagle Lily.
Lily came into my life when she was just 8 weeks old following the sudden death of my brother and from that moment on she put me back on my feet and helped make me the person I am today – business owner, wife and mother.
She could be very stubborn and was very greedy but the love she gave me was immense and then when our daughter was born her maternal side shone through and the two of them were inseparable, I can still see Lily stood by me at our front door watching our daughter leave for school. We took Lily with us on a holiday a lot and her favourite place was the beach, she just seemed right at home there and was always running around with our daughter.
Through her life, Lily had spinal surgery and was diagnosed with an overactive thyroid, both of which she overcame and never let them stop her fulfilling her life.
On 23rd December 2018, we lost Lily. She had a nasty cough so we took her to the vets for tests and on the same night, they told us the awful news that Lily had lung cancer. I couldn’t be with her when she passed but my husband said it was a very sad but also beautiful experience as Lily was already sedated and she simply fell asleep.
Lily was my best friend and we will never forget her, she really was a very special dog
RIP Lily – 18/5/04 – 23/12/18 love Mummy, Daddy & Lucia, thank you for everything xxxxx
