|Lily - Our Tibetan Terrier
As some of our client are aware we sadly lost our rescue dog Tom at only 5 years old in June 2013. You can his story here - Toms Story >> When Tom passed I didn't’t want to think about getting another dog, but as the weeks went by I thought about it more and more. On a walk one day I said to Nick id like a puppy and I'd like to call it Lily. I don’t know where it came from, it just seemed to pop into my head and that was that. We started to look on rescue sites in the last few weeks for a girl pup that we knew wouldn't grow too big, but to no avail.
We are familiar with the breed of Tibetan Terriers, we have looked after our friends dog Coco and for many years on and off looked after Sophie and Daisy two lovely girls while their owners were on holiday. We had seriously considered having one before and so looked online and found a lovely family who recently had just had a litter of puppies. Their dogs are family pets but they also show them. They had three pups left, two boys and one girl. I saw a photo of the girl, her registered name was Blue Velvet, she looked gorgeous so we visited.
Upon arrival the lady got all the puppies out of their pen, they were all clean and fluffy as they had just had their first bath! She told us they all had registered names, but her grandchildren had given them pet names, one was called Chico, one was called Messy, one was called Van Percy…..and my one was called Lily….
I did actually think I had miss heard her at first and I kind of looked at Nick as if to say…did she just say Lily?? After a while cuddling all of the pups who were running everywhere, playing, rolling around, wanting to be cuddled, I double checked with the lady. The one I had come to see, she is called Lily? Yes said the lady, my granddaughter named her. I cant get over the coincidence and I felt it was meant to be.
