Little Lulu



I did a little redecorating yesterday.

The white cedar chest was moved to the bedroom recently so I decided to replace it with this lovely crate we purchased at Petsmart.


It was missing something, so we filled it with this little cutie.


She has curly black hair so we named her Little Lulu - only people my age remember the cartoon!


She is already helping in (destroying) the garden.


We are in love with the new addition to our household, an 8 week old goldendoodle.

Mom is a golden retriever/poodle mix and dad is full poodle.

With a new baby in the house, I doubt if I will be doing much creating for the next few days.

But, I will be working in the garden with my little friend.

Oh how exciting!
I love Little Lulu! A cute name for an adorable pup.
I know you recently lost your family pet. While Lulu won't take the place...she will help soften the sting and move you forward.
Not to mention it's like having a baby in the house!
Buster, has been a sweetie for me. I'm totally in love with him.

Enjoy Lulu, can't wait to read all about her growing up and fun antics. :)

Be still my heart!!!! She is a doll!!!! I am so beyond happy for you guys!!!! Oh and just look at her in the garden!!! My brother just got a golden doodle last year and we love him!! He is such a good dog!!!! And LuLu!!!!! Love it! I told the hubs that if we had a 4th bean (which we probably are not!!!) that his name would be Louis or her name would be Lucy of Lucinda so that we could have a Lu or Lulu!!! Enjoy her friend!!!!!!

Cecilia Bramhall said...

Lulu is adorable, and the painting above the crate is amazing. You are so fortunate to have an in-house artist. How will you protect the gardens now?

Oh, you are going to have so much fun! She is beautiful! I hope the training goes well! All the doodle dogs I have seen are just wonderful. We ran into a Bernardoodle (St. Bernard/Poodle) at our church picnic yesterday. Huge, but very mellow and sweet.

Now I have puppy lust!

I remember Little LuLu. I am so happy you have a dog. A house is not a home without a dog. We have two dogs and two cats and something is always going on here. Enjoy your little bundle.

Sue said...

Of course I remember LuLu too. Great name and I absolutely love this breed you got. We have a mix of Bichon/Cavalier called a Cavachon. I keep meaning to make a page about her on the blog too. They are so fun aren't they?!

Anne said...

So cute congratulations! I remember little lulu!

Patty Antle said...

Little Lulu is so cute. I love the pic of her in the flowers - sorry. :) I wondered how long it would take for you to find another dog to love. Looks like you found a good one!

Renee said...

I remember Little Lulu and your Lulu is adorable.

Oh wow Carol, she's so cute and adorable. I wouldn't be able to get anything done either, with this little bundle to cuddle !

Carla said...

OMG LULU is so cute. That picture of her in "the garden" is precious. Now the question is "Is she still precious in your mind today?" LOL. I remember Little LuLu.
Oh and you need to come to McKinney Texas historic square...I thought of you every time we walked into one of the antique stores and they had an old wooden step ladder.. They ranged from $45-75.
