Shortly before we completed the purchase of the café and just before she turned four, our darling whippet, Lily, was killed by a speeding car just outside our cabin.
We buried her behind the building where she will always be near us and planted some Lily of the Valley and an Alerce on the grave to stand as a memorial for the next 4,000 years. Now she can always live up to her full name, TigerLily of the Valley.
Here are some of our favourite photos of her which show off her personality and her loving and lovable nature. Some people say that dogs are just animals. These people have obviously never had a pet like Lily.
