Lily Belle just had her first birthday. She had a bit of a rough childhood before we adopted her four months ago. She was found as a stray in North Carolina and brought to a shelter, then she moved to New Jersey to a wonderful foster organization that put her up for adoption. The moment I saw her I knew I was in love--but I still had to convince my husband! Lucky, Lily Belle's loving brown eyes and her tendency to wink at you with her left eye while wagging her tail quickly won him over! We fostered Lily for only two days before deciding that she was destined to be our "forever dog". These days, Lily spends plenty of time lounging in the sun, playing fetch with her huge collection of tennis balls, and cuddling with me under the covers while snoring! We can't believe how lucky we are to have found our wonderful little fur baby. Lily Belle is such a big part of our hearts that it's hard to remember what life was like without her! There is truly nothing like a warm puppy in your lap.
