Sweet and Lovely 'LILY' of the Valley
As a lover of Labradors and a breeder, some posts are so fun to write, and others are literally almost impossible to type. This is one of the most difficult ones I can imagine. At this point, I feel like my keyboard is covered in Molasses! Choosing to place a dog into a new forever family is always so hard for myself, and especially for my family, but as a breeder it is something that has to be done from time to time to move the breeding program forward.
It is only after a great deal of prayer and discussion, that we have decided to retire Lily from our breeding program here at Kingridge. Lily always was, and will continue to be, first and foremost, our family's very special and much loved pet. So, it is with a heavy heart that we have made this difficult decision. She has only had one successful pregnancy after multiple attempts, and as a result we feel it is ultimately best to find a new home for our special girl.
We have raised Lily from the very start! I remember when she weighed just over a pound and fit in the palm of my hand. She was born out of the Precious Gems of Kingridge Litter. Her mother was our 'Shiloh' and her father 'Calypso' was the Best of Breed winner at both the Westminster and Eukanuba dog shows in 2011. Lily has always lived inside our home and been a very special part of our family.
We are looking for a loving home with humans who will pamper Lily and show her as much affection as she is used to receiving from us. She is a healthy, happy, 4 1/2 year old yellow Lab, with a stellar pedigree. Lily is terrific with children (she absolutely loves kids) of all ages, cats, and other dogs. She is faithful and oh so gentle, and she loves walks and jogging next to me on the trail. She really is the epitome of the Labrador breed.
We know that another family is going to be thrilled with the addition of Lily into their family, and we are excited to get to talk with them. Lily is being adopted on a companion/pet registration only. She will come into your home with all of her AKC papers, current on shots, and with a written agreement of spaying by the new family's veterinarian. She is sure to bless another family as much as she has ours! It's just so hard to share the precious gem that we have found in living life with Lily.
If you think your home may be a good fit for Lily, please email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at (724)561-9808 so that we can talk more and see if it seems like a wonderful fit for everyone. I think Lily will transition seamlessly into a happy new home, because to love with abundant affection is her nature. Our family, and especially all of my children, will always hold such a special place in our hearts for her. Lily really is a unique and beautiful gem.
