The Adventures of Lily
And the Little Lost Doggie
Doggie was found by Lily, the Golden Retriever, under a hedge. Though unloved, unclaimed and even bullied while unable to defend himself, Doggie found his world wonderfully changed by fabulous friends and amazing adventures that took him, with Lily and his new forever family, to Buckingham Palace to be rewarded for helping others.
- Lily heard what her human mummy couldn't: a tiny voice crying "Help!"
- Where was the owner of this little lost doggie?
- The little lost doggie couldn't remember anything; not even his own name
- What would happen if Doggie's owner came? What if his owner didn't?
- Lily's human mummy tried hard to find Doggie's owner
- They tied the little lost doggie to a lamppost to be found
- Doggie felt himself being torn from the lamppost and hurled onto the ground
- Doggie had been bullied. How could they stop the bully?
- Newspaper reporters, photographers and TV crews arrived – especially to congratulate Doggie!
- Doggie finds himself at Buckingham Palace! For an award! From Prince George!
After Anne takes him off the lamppost and into her home with Lily and and her mum, Pilot, he has such amazing adventures that he finds himself the star attraction at school when he joins Lily for her Pets As Therapy Read2Dogs assignments. For his compassionate part in helping animals have lives that matter, he quickly becomes a media celebrity, and is even rewarded by royalty at Buckingham Palace.
Many characters and events in Doggie’s story are real, as the photos show. Charming, original illustrations by the author seamlessly blend reality and fantasy. Doggie’s story, with Lily, Pilot and Anne, shows the value of love and friendship.
