Just a few days ago I received news that Waldo’s bestie (Lily) was going to leave this world because of kidney failure. Lily didn’t live with us, but she may as well have. She was a part of our pack from the day her dad adopted her from the humane society.
As a puppy, Lily had been hit by a car. Her leg was broken at the hip, she had internal damage, and one of her kidneys was too damaged to be repaired and had to be removed. Shortly after her surgery she was brought to the humane society where J’s buddy adopted her. She was only 18 months old. That was in 2011.
It was love at first sight when Waldo first met Lily. Inseparable is a perfect description of their relationship; wherever Lily was, Waldo was her shadow. They slept together, played together, rode in cars together, and played in Boulder Creek side by side.
Sweet Lily, your Colorado pack misses you dearly.
