Hi all! This is my extra special, Heaven sent, MGD Lily Joy! You see, in 2021, my beloved husband and soulmate of 37 passed away unexpectedly at the young age of 59. Almost a year later, I unexpectedly lost my 9 year old Aussie Doodle to a brain tumor. A month later, my 82 year old dad passed away. To say I was devastated is an understatement. Meanwhile, sometimes when you lose people in your life to death, you also lose people who are living. At that point the only thing that I had left, was our old English bulldog, beagle mix, Lila. She was an amazing dog, who brought me so much comfort during my darkest days about a month ago I said goodbye to her as I had it to the ER. I didn’t even realize how sick I was. I thought I would be home that same day. My friends came and took her to the kennel for me. About three months prior. I found out that she did have a very bad heart murmur. Anyway, I know this is long but there’s a point to this. I was admitted to the hospital and would need a surgery. The day of my surgery the kennel called me to tell me that they were playing with Lila and she was having fun and she collapsed and passed away. I have no words to describe that I felt. But now comes the good and joyful part. 😇
Last week I wasn’t even looking to get a dog, and I knew that I was in no situation to have a puppy at this point. But my heart was so unfulfilled. I have not been without any kind of an animal since I was five years old, so I came across this MGD, a beautiful sable color, that nobody had chosen when she was born. So she’s been with the breeder ever since. When my dad passed away it was June 13, 2022. That Sunday, June 19 was Father’s Day and that was the day that Lily Joy was born. me and my husband’s anniversary was June 15. I just knew that somehow this was divine intervention as I call it. I knew that daddy had this puppy in mind for me all along !
So I’ve had her since this past Thursday. And she has been an absolute joy in my life. I feel so fortunate and blessed she is actually helping me heal my lungs. I can tell that when I get tired and she knows it, she comes over to me in a way that tells me I need to go sit down with her. She’s extremely gentle and loving with me, and she doesn’t mess with my oxygen tubing at all, which is a good thing 😊 thank you for listening to my story. It’s a testimony that sometimes there is that extra special one waiting for us at an extra special time in our lives.
