Lilly (aka) Freckles came home the day before Thanksgiving 2013. The timing was perfect. We had another blessing to thank God for: a new addition to our family! Beautiful sweet Lilly!
I had lost my 2oldest 4legged children within a year and a half. My Freddy basset had passed away just in September and my heart was broken. Sandy, who is 12 and was also adopted from HSNMB, was lost and depressed. I had seen Freckles on the web site even before Freddy h...ad passed and thought she was so beautiful and had such soulful eyes. I was very close to going to see her but decided not to.
One Saturday in October I rode by Petco and my heart skipped a beat! There she was! I had to stop and see her. She was very quiet and calm. I was in love! I talked to the employees and volunteers. And learned that her owner had turned her in and she had been there a year that month. I went home and got Sandy and we visited for a while and walked together. A perfect day!
I couldn't make a quick decision so with a sad heart I went home to think about adding Lilly to our family.
In the meantime, I went to other rescues and spent time with some other dogs that I thought might be a good companion for Sandy but Freckles never left my mind or heart. I took Sandy to see her again and his tail was wagging when he saw her and that was my sign. I knew we were meant to be a family! Lilly (Freckles) has come a long way since coming home and still has some issues that we are working on. Sandy and Lilly act like brother and sister! I am so thankful for the volunteers and employees at HSNMB. They were so supportive during the whole process of adopting Lilly and they truly cared and loved Lilly during her stay there. Lilly is a wonderful companion and loving friend. She has a very special place in my heart and I look forward to making sure she has many loving years ahead and the best life she can possibly have with Sandy and I!!
