It’s Lily’s 9th Birthday! Well, it was on January 18, 2018. She’s a Great Dane who is full of spunk and excited to turn 9. If you follow me on Instagram you’ve probably already seen these, yet they’re too good not to share here, too. Let’s check out the past year for Lily!
I remember back in June, when we were in Glacier National Park in Montana with Lily, a lady came up to us and just started hugging Lily. Her Great Dane was at home and too unwell to travel. I asked how old she was – 9 said the lady. Later on when Bryce and I were by the fire I got excited – do you think Lily could live to be 9??!!? Neither of us thought it would be possible, yet here she is, a 9 year old happy Great Dane. Who, I should mention, travelled to BC this past weekend.
She is flat out one of the greatest dogs (Bella was awesome, too). The neatest part about Lily is how much she loves being the centre of attention. We didn’t ever really know this until she became our only dog, yet she likes the spotlight. Here are 9 photos of Lily over the past year – it was a great one.
The Past Year
The photos above was taken on Thursday morning, the day this pup turned nine and in true Great Dane fashion, she’s stretching and being bashful.
Below, Lily and all her stuffies. She is ridiculously spoiled.
Rice on her nose – what? I have rice on my nose? She didn’t eat one day in July so we gave her some rice – hoping it would entice her to eat. Well, it did and after looking at us the next meal, like ‘ah, where’s my rice?’ we’ve been giving it to her ever since.
A fall walk around the property. She loves living in the country.
Slobber on her face? I told you she likes to play!
Glacier National Park travelling on the Going-to-the-Sun-Road. Lily loves car rides!
On the deck, protecting the property. This is how she spends her days when we are home and it’s even slightly warm out. She loves nature.
Lily in the City of Yellowknife Visitor Centre smelling a polar bear. This pup braved the cold and had an adventure of a lifetime.
That’s us almost a year ago in Yellowknife. Staying warm in the Arctic winter.
Overall, the past year with Lily has been so much fun. We hit up Dairy Queen yesterday to celebrate this one of a kind pup! Thanks to all of you who love her and love all dogs – dogs are the best, aren’t they?!
Lily’s 9th Birthday
Lily loves ice cream! And will casually stare down the drive thru attendant while waiting.
Feeding her a cone is so much fun – pure awesomeness. Happy Birthday sweet pup – congrats on being 9!
Thanks so much for visiting and celebrating with us!
