It was meant to be. The stars literally aligned with determination and purpose to bring Barbara to Bellfountain and little rescue dog named Tilly. Barbara thought she might need to spend a few days getting to know Tilly and seeing how Tilly felt about her before making a decision. ARPH was waiting in the wings with transport and foster home, just in case.
It took less than 30 seconds.
Tilly slept on the bed with Barbara that night, and in the morning, they were off to her new and forever home. Kayaking, fishing, a cabin on the river, pizza on the creek, shopping at the local farm supply store, and of course, greeting customers at the shop - this girl's got a busy social schedule now, and is enjoying every full minute of it.
I'm not one to believe in fate, or portents and signs, stuff like that. But to hear the entire, incredible chain of coincidences that led up to the moment that Barbara and Tilly locked eyes, well, sometimes, you just gotta believe, baby.
The proof is in the pictures
Oh yeah, UPS drivers gotta get some Tilly Love!
