When we met 12 year-old Tilly at a local shelter, we heard the word "unsalvageable" used to describe her. Something in her eyes told us she didn't feel the same way, and we brought her home. Tilly was shy and quiet, but barked in protest if anyone (visitors included), tried to leave the house. Although she loved a lap and taking walks, she enjoyed prepping her special blanket into the perfect "cave," or finding her favorite spot on the grass to soak up the sunshine. For 3 years, she taught us that a senior pet can bring a special kind of joy and unconditional love into one's heart and home. She was a very brave little girl who never once complained. Tilly, we will always love you and miss you, but we'll meet again someday. Wear your wings proudly, fly over the Rainbow Bridge and run free.
