Pet of the Week for March 27

Pet of the week March 27 Lily.jpg

MY NAME IS Lily, and I came from Tennessee almost 2 years ago. I am now four and a half years old. I never saw snow before but I've seen quite a bit lately. I never learned to read but Mom and Dad are trying to teach me. I love to walk with Mommy, and Daddy takes me for rides around town. My favorite pastime is hunting and catching rabbits in my back yard. Lots of fun!
