This book is a semi-fictionalized account of the events in the life of a dog belonging to the author and her husband, as seen through the eyes of said dog. Any resemblance in this book to works by other authors is entirely coincidental. With the exception of Lilie and her humans, the characters in this book are fictionalized and generalized examples of various people or animals met by the author, her husband, and their dog in similar situations, and any resemblance to real people and animals is purely coincidental.


Not long ago, in a town near the sea, there lived a cute and fluffy little West Highland White Terrier named Lilie. A West Highland White Terrier – just in case you don’t know – is a little white dog with pointed ears, an adorable black button nose, and intelligent coal black eyes.

Lilie was an extremely energetic and friendly little dog, who loved everyone and everything.

Although all West Highland White Terriers – or Westies, as they’re often known – look almost exactly alike, they don’t always act alike. So, not every dog is as energetic and friendly as Lilie was, even those of the same breed. Like I said though, Lilie was a very friendly and energetic dog, who loved everyone and everything. Yes, she even loved baths and the vet.

But one of her most favourite things in the entire world was her toys.

Actually, Lilie had a lot of toys. Squeaky toys, tuggy toys, balls... She had them all, and loved them all. She was especially fond of balls, and could play fetch with a tennis ball for hours and hours – when the humans would cooperate. But, every so often, Lilie would pick a favourite from among her other toys, usually something cuddly.

First there was the bushytailed squirrel with the squeaker in its tummy, and then there was the cuddly triceratops. She had loved them both, but somehow – Lilie had no idea how, and it totally wasn’t her fault, no matter what anyone said – they got all torn up, their stuffing came out, and gradually, piece by piece, the humans threw them in the bin, until there was nothing left for Lilie to play with. She didn’t waste time being upset about it though, but instead just picked a new favourite.
