“I walk on the street and people look really stern and they take one look at Lilly and oh, there’s a little smile. I’ve not seen anybody who doesn’t smile when they see Lilly.”
-Eric (Lilly’s human)
Lilly the greyhound was adopted by her owner, Eric, 8 years ago when she was brought into Mayhew animal welfare centre. Since 2010, Eric has been working as a kennel assistant feeding, cleaning, walking, training and assessing the dogs. This year will be no different, with Eric working Christmas Day and Boxing Day. Lilly stays at home and polishes off the turkey dinner.
