Lily Moldstad Neff, 6/10/10-5/14/18
Lily Moldstad Neff, almost 8 years young, died May 14, 2018, at Penn Animal Hospital in Pittsburgh, surrounded by family, after a short but brave battle with cancer. She is survived by her parents, Cristine Neff and Kirk Moldstad, her brother, Brock, and sister, Jessie, as well as 7 half-sibling cats.
Lily, also known as “Lillers,” was born on June 10, 2010 and found her forever home with on February 19, 2011, at the Animal Rescue League in Pittsburgh, PA. She was the only dog that wasn’t barking. Looking into her eyes, it was love at first sight. She was meant to be part of our family.
Lily loved to spend time curled up on the couch, watching the ID Channel, as well as animal documentaries. She enjoyed playing in the backyard and lying on the deck in the sun.
She often participated in high jump competition along the back fence and looked forward to seeing her next-door neighbor and friend, Stella.
Her favorite toys were her stuffed Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and her favorite game was tug-of-war.
Lily loved her family fiercely. She would rather lick your face than bite, but she was also protective of her family, acting as loyal guard dog when necessary. Despite her 60-pound frame, Lily believed she was a lap dog. She was happiest when snuggled up with family on the couch, and she persistently followed her mom all around the house.
Lily will be terribly missed by her family and friends. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to The Humane Animal Rescue at 6926 Hamilton Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA, 15208.
