Flash forward one week ~ February 3, 2013

Scrappy: Lilah Lilah: Yes, Scrappy Scrappy: I get it.
Scrappy: Lilah
Lilah: Yes, Scrappy
Scrappy: I get it.
Lilah: Ok, you can stay
Lilah: Alright, you can stay

Flash forward a year or two.  Scrappy Thyme is a handful.  What were we thinking?!! Lilah upped her game and kept up for a while.  Since I first shared this post, Lilah has slowly lost almost all sight.  Yet still continues to bound out of bed on most days and dodges obstacles like a champ.

    I loved this Libby. Loved the pictures, loved the captions and I love that they nap on the stairs! How unique. Bostons are sweet doggies. There is something about me that is drawn to terriers. Thank you for sharing your love babies with me. xoxo
