When I started looking for a dog to adopt in November 2015, my husband was anything but convinced. Having grown up without pets, his impression of dogs was that they were smelly, a lot of work, and drooled everywhere. We had had a bad experience with a cat who kept biting us but I was certain that a dog was the missing piece of the puzzle our family was looking for. After we found Lulu we had to wait to take her home as she developed kennel cough. Now we've had her with us for 15 months, and we can't imagine our lives without her. She is not only a loving companion to our daughter and to me but a real daddy's girl! My previously skeptical husband lives for his walks with sweet Lulu and treats her as gently and lovingly as a child. She has made a real difference in all of our lives.
