Introducing my Lulu
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!!!!
