This is Lizzy Flanagan with her adoptive pup named Tildy and my husband Cliff. While this doesn't seem like much of a photo it was such a sweet moment in the life of our little friend family. Cliff was saying hi, Lizzy was reassuring her that it was safe and Tildy was totally cool with it. A HUGE WIN! When Lizzy brought Tildy home she learned in short order that Tildy had been brutally mistreated. Suddenly training Tildy and integrating her into the family became an undertaking of serious patience and love. It was really, really hard for a long time and they both stayed with it and grew together in love. I've watched Tildy transform and Lizzy celebrate her every step of the way. My #gratitude365 goes out to Lizzy. Thank you for your huge heart and tremendous patience. Thank you for the way you love all creatures big and small. Thank you for the way you see the world and for every kind word you offer to those who cross your path. You are a giant in my life.
