We celebrated our little diva dog's 7th birthday yesterday, so I thought I'd take a little walk down memory lane....

Meet Lily Belle. She came into began controlling my life in June of 2007.

She was a bit of a ragamuffin in her early days...

But underneath all that dark fur was the sweet baby dog we know and love...

Posing pretty for her 1st Birthday portrait 

Lily and I were in a pretty bad car wreck a few weeks before her first birthday. We're soooo very lucky {and incredibly thankful} that she survived the accident. We celebrated B.I.G. that year!

Celebrating with Charlie! He and Rachael got Miss Lil some pretty fabulous gifts!

Lil's birthday often includes cheering on our beloved Jayhawks!

She really loved the frosting on her birthday cookie!

Before Miss Lil was in my life, I didn't really even like animals that much. {I'm not sure why I refer to her as an animal...pretty sure she is convinced that she's a human!} And now I can't imagine life without her. She can always make me smile...even early in the mornings! Love this little diva dog so much!

Happy Birthday, Lily! 


  1. Miss Lily has become a big part of all of our lives. After their car wreck , Lil stayed so close to Leslie during the entire recovery time. They are pretty much inseparable. BUT, now she has a new daddy and she loves him too....Good thing, huh Ryan!!!

  2. Precious puppy! I miss having a small dog. Mine is a 60 pound Blue Heeler. :)

  3. She's precious! Happy birthday Lily!
