My mom's little fur buddy Lulu passed away last night (8/10/2009). She went to be with her best buddy Maggie ( pictured below) who passed away July of 2007. Mom called me tonight and let me know. She's so strong at handling heartache. Seems to be handling it a lot better than I could.
She passed in her sleep as Maggie did a few years back. Had a good life and lived to be 12 years old and got to spend over 10 or 11 of those years with my mom.
Mom and aunt Eva rescued her from a puppy mill back in 98 or 99. She was kept in a really small cage with hardly any human contact for the first year or so before mom came along.
Mom saw her and it was love at first sight. She's been an inside dog ever since. Got to stay in the cool of air conditioning and my mom makes the best chicken concoction to mix in with their dry food. Lulu loves to eat.
She got breakfast every morning and mom would even give her a taste of something at lunch, and of course she got supper too!
My sister's boxer Missy has been her companion since Maggie passed away. Missy would come over and stay with her every day while sis and bro-in-law were at work. Mom said Missy could tell something was wrong with Lulu yesterday and wouldn't leave her side. Guess I need to get sis to send me some pics of Missy.
We love you Lulu and you were dearly loved and will me missed by us all!
