Petting Lily's back is like playing a xylophone - you can count her vertebrae from 10' away. I see now that the pics I posted don't show it, but she's thinner than your dog. I'm not going to make an effort to take pics to capture the signs of her past, so you'll have to just trust me on this. You have a very pretty dog. I've always been told that seeing ribs through fur is a little underweight (depending on the fur), but vertebrae and hips that jut out are well into the red.
