Puppy Love

Everybody around here knows sweet Tilly! Today is my baby girl's 2nd birthday!
 
Skye and I were both saying last night that it feels like we've had her for way longer than 2 years. We like to call her our million dollar dog because she has put a hurtin' on mama's wallet since she came around. We've been through a lot with this little lady - sensitive stomach issues, getting attacked by our neighbor's dog and a week long hospital stay, hip dysplasia... we've had our fair share of battles in a short two years.
 
Before Tilly came along, we had another Pom that died in 2010. I was completely devastated and wasn't sure if I could go the Pom route again. We'd had our previous dog, Roxy, for 4 years and she was my first real pet on my own. I really love Pomeranians! I'd always wanted one and they are such good dogs with unique little personalities. Long story short - Skye found Tillly at a breeder in Nashville and we spent our anniversary in December 2010 driving to get Ms. Tilly!
 
That was her on the car ride home. We laughed so hard at her little poofy Snooki bangs. Once she pooped in my lap, I knew she was meant to be mine! :) Tilly helped me grieve the loss of Roxy and move on. She eagerly greets me every single day. She never stays mad at me for more than 5 minutes. She loves to cuddle with me.  She has the funniest personality and I wish that you could all meet her! I can't believe how big she is now and how much she's changed. She is my baby and I love her so much! (I seriously have tears writing this silly little post - all you dog lovers out there understand!)
 
Happy Birthday Tilly!

OKay from one Pom mom to another, HAPPY BIRTHDAY to little miss Tilly!

I have to ask, your previous pom died only at 4 yrs old??? What happened!?!?

I feel you with dealing with a lot of battles with this breed. Aspen was only 7 months old when she had a major patella surgery...

Happy Birthday Tilly! My pom will be 13 on October 30th. He has been through everything with me. I will be doing a post on him next week too ;) Sometimes I think we like our pets more than people. Thanks for being such a great pet owner :)
