Lilly was found sifting through garbage; she looked like she had been on the streets for weeks. She seemed to have scrapes and blisters around her mouth, was limping, and was terrified of people. I managed to coax her closer with some hamburger, and when she knew i wouldn’t hurt her, came close and ate it. There was a rope buried deep into her neck. I took her home and she let me bath her and clean her up. She became my best friend, following me from room to room and never wanting to be too far away. She is at my feet now, keeping them warm.
