Lily: Once a Castaway, Now a Confidant
Wandering the streets of Memphis on a cold, gray January day, six week old Lily was just trying to survive. Luckily, she chose the right street to roam down at the exact right time. She had no idea that particular dreary winter day was about to get a lot brighter for her.
A Hollywood Feed Broad Avenue customer saw the young puppy walking about the street and decided to take her inside the store and that's where Alyson Capote's dad found her.
“When he saw her, he immediately called me and said he found the dog for me. I went to see her right away,” explains Alyson. “When I walked in I fell in love as soon as I picked her up and felt her puppy kisses.”
From that day Lily has been a part of the Capote family and changed Alyson's life forever. Today she enjoys trail running, swimming in the pool, and spending time with her best friend Truman Capote (Alyson's parents' dog).
“She loves taking trips to Lowe’s to help me with home improvement projects, joining me whenever she can in the car for work, and being my shadow as much as possible,” said Alyson. “I can’t imagine my life without her.”
