Lulu

What can I say about Lulu?  I can't think of her without smiling, and that pretty much sums it up.  From her silly and oh-so-expressive face, to her chubby piggy butt, she personifies the word "cute."  Add to that an impish sense of humor, a range of sound effects that rivals the most technologically advanced sound booths, and an "always up for fun" attitude, and you are pretty much guaranteed that no day shall pass without a good laugh.

Lulu has a passion for life that is contagious.  Whether she is snorting and flipping around on the couch battling imaginary foes, or flopped out on her belly with legs straight back like chicken drumsticks on an oven stuffer roaster, she is one funny piggy.  She is an incredibly loving little dog who is extremely devoted to her family, and has never met a person she didn't like.

At home, she is my shadow, even joining me in the shower occasionally.  She does not like to be left out of anything.  Needless to say, Lulu is a kid magnet, and once she has attracted one or more, she delights in their company.  She adores my son, and that feeling seems to be mutual.

Training Lulu in obedience and agility is both a treat and a challenge.  She is far smarter than I expected a bulldog to be, but she also comes with her own terms, and success depends on how well I can understand and meet those terms.  Our training is a work in progress, and we have had amazing successes that surpassed my wildest expectations, and humiliating failures that remind me her cooperation in my games is a gift, and is not to be taken for granted.  But in the end, I will be a far better trainer and a far better person for having worked with her.  She reminds me constantly that we are in this to have fun, never let's me take myself, or her, too seriously and has significantly raised the "patience" needle on my virtue meter.

Comedienne, toy fanatic, snuggle bug, cat tormenter, obsessive foot licker, queen bee, loving buddy... that's Lu.  And with that, I hope you will check out Lulu's story and her accomplishments (and of course, her photo albums) to see what makes this bat-eared bowling ball with legs so very special.

Lulu is now retired from performance and living the life of luxury in VA in a wonderful home with her best friend, Trudy.  Life in a multi-pet home has always been challenging for Lulu, and though her fiery "mine" philosophy is part of her charm, it was problematic with the other pets.

So, while we miss her very much, the ideal situation for her presented itself, where she could be the only pet and the center of Trudy's world.  She has lots of toys, sleeps on the pillow in bed next to Trudy at night, and gets to go shopping ... what more could a little Frenchie diva want?  Many thanks to Trudy for loving Lulu so much and giving her a super life with you.  Love you both!!!
