Yet Another Addition

Is there anything cuter than a fat, roly-poly puppy with big paws, a sweet face, floppy ears and soft, soft fur?


I saw this little face (the dog’s, not Josiah’s!) on a shelter website early in the week. Lone Star Labs told us they would love to pull her from the shelter but only if a foster home was available. Most people aren’t too enthusiastic about fostering a puppy; sure they are cute, but they are also a mess! But we said yes, why not? Hmmmmm.

Yesterday, Marsha of LSL arrived with a second crate, bag of puppy food, puppy biscuits, and some chew toys for the newest foster to play with. Today the two little boys and I picked up Lulu from the vet’s office and took her through afternoon carpool to the delight of all the schoolchildren!


Well, she IS a really cute puppy. And the children are having a ball with her. Dixie is not so sure about the little encroacher, and we have had to closely monitor the two girls when they are together. But we have no doubt Lulu will find herself a loving home VERY quickly. Till then, we are soaking us up some puppy love! Updated to add: Check out who made the Lone Star Adoptable Pets Page!!


Oh, and by the way, the only thing cuter than a little roly puppy, is the man of your dreams holding that puppy!

    Wow… that is one cute puppy, and the pics with the kids are adorable. I’m sure the carpool was a blast :) How old is she, about four months or so?

    Ah, that would explain why the last picture wasn’t even cuter to me.

    James, I’m sure we can find you a pic or two of Andrew holding a puppy. All is not lost.

    Lulu certainly is adorable, as are the pictures of her with the children and the big boy! But the question remains: Can she be taught to catch a frisbee?!

    I have dog for my foster dog too. He’s an old fellow though. You are definitely right about puppies being a mess. That is who I foster old fellows like Ukie.

    Pete, they think Lulu is just about 12 weeks old, if that. She is SO sweet!

    Hmm… I was going to say three months, but I figured I should go higher. It’s so hard to tell in photos…
