Smile Introducing my Lulu

Hi everyone!

I got my beautiful Lulubelle Delilah last November, and although I've been reading this forum nonstop and have gotten a lot of help from you guys, I hadn't introduced her yet so I thought I'd do that.

She is now 5.5 months and the most wonderful dog in the world. My father, the least likely dog person in the world, is in love with her. He says she doesn't so anything that isn't cute and they love making each other laugh.

She's a handful in terms of my work schedule, because she has separation anxiety and will poop everywhere and jump all over it, in her ex-pen of course... It's frustrating knowing I'm coming home to scrape poop and bathe her nightly, but I'm hoping she'll outgrow it soon.... And well, when she falls asleep on my lap after I bathe her, I just melt...

Today she's in the vet getting an ultrasound. Even though she's almost 6 months she's only 4.2 pounds, which had me worried. I read here about portosystemic shunts and so I took her to the vet to check it out. Her bile acid is 36, which is high, but hopefully isn't a shunt... She's so tiny, I would hate for her to have any surgery. My father says no sick dog could possibly be as happy and lively as she is. I hope he's right. The puppy I had originally picked from the breeder, she ultimately decided not to sell, because she was too tiny. I wasn't looking for a tiny dog, these were just the only creams she had. The darker dogs were all much bigger. And she told me that Lulu was her favorite, and I can see how. She's imposible not to love...

Anyways so here are some pictures!!! The sepia one is from the day I got her at 10 weeks. I love that picture she looks like a stuffed animal!! The other three are from this weekend. The one of her sleeping is just hilarious because of the positions she puts herself in. She has a doctorate in sleeping comfortably!!!

I love my Lulubelly, and I hope you guys like the pictures!!!

Thanks for all the help!!!!

Awww, she's sweet! In the sleeping picture she looks like one of those toys that has no stuffing! My Rascal will sleep all bent up in funny ways, and that's when he snores...ha, ha, ha!

What a cutie! If it is any consolation to you, our Abby did the same thing when we left her and I always dreaded coming home to the mess! That was when we kept her in our large laundry room. Then we switched her to a crate and put a t-shirt that I had worn inside with her and she started to gradually get better. So, there is hope for Lulu yet! She is an adorable little girl and sounds like she has wormed her way into your and your father's hearts! Thanks for posting the pictures! And welcome to the forum!

I hope she gets a good report from the vet!

She is too cute for words! And you are a brave soul, letting her stretch out on a beautiful white sofa. I hope the vet finds no problem with her. Do let us know. I'll pray for a good outcome.

I have a great solution for separation anxiety. Get her a friend. Another puppy will keep her occupied till mommy comes home.

How much did she weigh when you brought her home?
I hope her tests come back good! Maybe she is just a small little thing.
She sure is cute!!!!

Welcome to the forum! Ha - I lurked on the forum for a VERY long time before I ever got up the nerve to join. I knew pictures were 'required' and was sure I couldn't figure out how to post them!

Your Lulubelle is adorable. These Havs sure seem to know how to wrap the men around their little paws! I certainly hope the reports from the vet are good and that the ultrasound doesn't find anything amiss!

Hi, Your Lulubelle is so cute. What kind of dog food do you give her? Some foods they will poop a lot more than other foods . Hope she is okay and please let us know what the vet says
