On Thursday, when Dasilva got home from school, Lila kicked things off excitedly as usual.
"She gave a warm and slobbery welcome like she always does," Dasilva said. "I set my things down and she proceeded to pick up her blue squeaky hippo toy and was following me around with it. So, I walked upstairs and she followed, toy still in mouth."
Then came the adorable surprise.
"As soon as I walked in my room, she rushed towards the bed, set her toy down with all the other ones that she had brought upstairs and just looked at me, kind of saying, 'I brought these all for you.' I was in awe!"
