Girl Full of Moxie

Hello, everyone!

Lulu’s trainer is going to miss this gal so much. She is such an amazing greyhound and he hates to give her up, but he’s so excited that she’s going to get her very own forever home! He has enjoyed getting to know her and watch her grow. She loves to play with his shoes and it’s so funny to see her grab them and run around the dorm while the trainers chase her for Operation Shoe Retrieval!

Her trainer also loves playing fetch with her; she has a tennis ball that she loves to fetch and when she brings it back and drops it, she looks up at you like “where’s my reward?!” She makes so many cute faces and you’re going to get to see all of them – a face when you put her on a bed, when you get up and leave to go do something, when you toss a ball for her to retrieve… she is just such a special, loving dog and you are going to love her!

Cutest Shoe Thief in Town

Hello, Lulu fans!

Another wonderful week with Lulu has come and gone, and she still amazes. She is always full of energy and loves to play. She knows everything so well and will do anything you ask of her. Lulu is so loving and will steal your heart at first glance! She loves to play with anyone and everyone, and she loves to steal her inmate trainers’ Crocs (shower shoes) when they aren’t watching! Then she will run all over the dorm with them in her cute little mouth and lie on her bed with them. When they try to get them, she takes off running with them again! You can’t help but laugh, and when they finally get them back, she’s off to find something else to play with. One thing is certain – Lulu finds something new and cute to do every single week. Her trainers can’t wait to see what she does next week!

Super Cute!

Lulu played and played, until she wore herself out in the play room this week.  She was flying around the room running and having a blast.  She also played fetch in the small yard and had the time of her life.  Her inmate trainer says that you can’t help but feel happy around Lulu! 

He says that her cute little face is sure to steal your heart! He hopes that her new forever home will shower her with love and attention. She knows lots of super fun extras that she’ll enjoy showing off for treats!

Can't Resist Those Big Brown Eyes

This girl is so smart and focused with everything she does. Lulu’s secondary trainer got to give her the commands during show and tell and Lulu showed everyone who’s boss. She did all of her commands perfectly. She’s so much fun to have around and play with. She gets so excited that she starts spinning in circles.

Her trainer loves feeding time with Lulu. He tells her to sit and stay while he puts her food bowl in the kennel. He looks back at her. Lulu’s got those ears up, waiting for the magic word…”release”. She’s good at giving the innocent look with those big ole brown eyes of hers. Lulu keeps them all smiling.

Fetch. Shake. Repeat

Lulu says it’s been a great week!  She did Show and Tell for the first time this week and I did wonderful!  I decided to be a little extra cute so when my inmate trainer asked me to “leave it”, I spun around in circles leaving the treat where it lay.  Oh yeah, it was cute.   Honestly, I deserve a TV announcement or perhaps extra treat; maybe both!  

So my inmate trainer plays fetch with tennis balls.  He now asks me to “shake” when I bring it back so I throw him a paw showing how clever I am.  I’m pretty awesome so I deserve lots of attention, love, and treats.  I wouldn’t turn down a good dog bed and toys either.  I keep hearing about this forever home business so I think I’m going to start a list of items needed…. Treats, toys, beds, treats, loves….


Your Little Shadow

Lulu’s inmate trainer says that this week hasn’t been as productive, as he’s been a bit under the weather.  He says that Lulu has been a true sweetheart through it all.   She’s followed him around everywhere he went to make sure he’s okay.

She did learn to brush her hair and it’s entirely too cute!  He’s proud to report that she knows most all of her commands with both verbal and hand signal cues!  She’s such a smart sweet girl!  

Not so little...Lulu

Since last week, Lulu has lost 3 more teeth! One of which her trainer pulled himself! He’s now her trainer, tooth fairy and dentist! A jack of all trades.

As I’m sure you know, Lulu knows all 13 of her basic commands with perfection and 5 extras so far. Her trainer is working with Lulu on “fetch” right now, which seems to be more of a workout for her trainer. She is picking up on it very quickly and there’s no doubt, this will make #6 on the list of extras.

Lulu is growing like a weed! She’s up to 30 lb.s From day 1 at the prison Lulu has slept in the bed with her trainer pretty much every night. And while she seems to be getting more and more comfortable, her trainer is getting pushed further and further off the bed. Pretty soon he’ll be the one sleeping in the kennel. LOL

A Visit from the Tooth Fairy

Hello Lulu fans! 

Ever since he was old enough to walk, Lulu's trainer has had a dog in his life. To be honest, he kind of loves them more than he loves people. And Little Miss Lulu has provided him with an experience that no other dog ever has, which is having the privilege to watch her lose her puppy teeth and get her big girl teeth! He was lucky enough to find one tooth while cleaning her kennel and watched another drop right out of her mouth after drinking some water. And now her two bottom canines are literally hanging out of the side of her mouth. He's even wiggled them around a few times, trying to get them to come on out. He's doing his best to make sure he can add them to the collection! The collection which he will be sending to y'all, by the way. And thanks to Miss Patti, the dogs got really nice beds and pillows in their kennels. Which means that he's now more than just Lulu's personal trainer. That's right folks, he's a certified Tooth Fairy! He put Lulu's teeth under her little pillow, and the next morning he replaced them with some of her favorite treats. It was so cute watching her wake up and move her pillow around to get to the treats. It was one of the very few times that Lulu has slept in her kennel and not in the bed with him. Well y'all, that's all for now. Y'all take care!

A Severe Case Of ADORABLE

Hello LuLu fans! And I know there’s a lot of you out there, so I’m going to bring you all up to speed on everything. LuLu started out at the prison at 7 weeks old, weighed 8 lbs. and was 13 inches tall to the top of her shoulders. LuLu is now 5 months old. Weighs a whopping 27 lbs. and she stands at 22 inches tall. She has the biggest, but most adorable ears her trainer has ever seen! She also has the most intense, but undeniable cute stare. Her trainer knows this, because she never takes her eyes off of him.

LuLu is very loving, extremely smart. Don’t forget playful and she also has an unlimited amount of energy. After all, she is a greyhound puppy! Her trainer said he loves her with all his heart! He has so much to tell you about her, including a special story about some recent changes that little miss LuLu has gone through, but you will just have to wait and wonder until next week, because it’s LuLu’s bed time. Goodnight…

See You Soon

Dear Forever Family, 

I just wanted to write a few lines to tell you how I’m doing and to provide you with a list of provisions for when I arrive home.   

First, I need lots of treats, like a whole dump truck load… not an 18-wheeler load… like the oversized load kind.  Second, I’d like a soft bed and some toys.  Lots of them.

  I’m totally excited to be going to this new forever home thing.  He says I should show off all my command skills.  Oh, you should know I got all 10s on my command show and tell.  I’ve even learned a few extras!  It’s okay for you to tell me how awesome I am…. really!  If you happen to feel compelled to tell me I’m cute and scratch my head that’s okay too.  AND if you feel the need to give me a yummy treat… well that’s only natural and you should definitely follow through with that one.  

I’ll see you soon!

Run, Lulu, Run!

Dear Lulu Fans,

We’re almost there! We are one week from the end of the session, and her swap week trainer thinks Lulu may have a bit of a Lassie complex. She is so smart that her trainer is overwhelmed by happiness that he got to work with her. She is probably the smartest dog in the program, even though she’s the youngest and smallest! She is also cute as a button. And believe us when we tell you, this baby loves to RUN! When she gets to cut loose, she runs nonstop until she gets tired, and even then when her trainers try to go get her, she thinks they’re trying to play - and she starts off again! It’s like she never runs out of energy. She is a puppy, after all.

Lulu also loves toys and is HIGHLY treat motivated, which likely explains how she picks up on everything so quickly. Her swap week trainer had an absolute blast spending time and playing with Lulu this week, and she officially took the coveted spot in his heart of Favorite Greyhound to date since the program’s inception!

Prepare your hearts, folks, ‘cause Lulu’s on the move!

Everyone's Cuckoo For LuLu!

LuLu is one amazing greyhound. Here trainer said she is extremely attentive and aware of everything, including her commands. Just a simple hand signal and she knows exactly what is expected of her. I don’t know how, but she just keeps getting cuter and cuter the bigger she gets. Maybe one day she will grow into her ears!

Her trainers also learned LuLu is a “cheap treater.” She will do anything for an ice cube! As long as you have a freezer and water… Presto. You’ve got treats! It’s never a dull moment with LuLu around. She’s a sweet pup with an upbeat attitude and happy-go-lucky vibe. Her forever family is going to go cuckoo for LuLu!!

Growing Like a (super cute) Weed!

Dear Lulu Fans,

The end of this session is approaching and Lulu’s last session will soon begin! Her trainer says he is proud and privileged to be part of #TeamLulu. She’s taught him as much as he’s taught her! Lulu definitely has a personality of her own - sometimes it seems like she thinks she’s human. She loves being babied, pampered, rocked, loved on, and especially to get treated! And just like a baby, she picks up on everything the first time.

Her favorite time is playtime (duh!), and she just loves to go nuts in the play room! Not too crazy, but just enough to be entertaining and cute and fun. Her trainer normally lets her romp around for about 15 minutes so playtime can stay special. He also makes it a habit to weigh her frequently, since she’s growing like a weed! She’s 20 pounds and is now at the point where it’s not easy to carry her. Her trainer is excited for the final weeks of this session, and then to spend another 10-week session with Miss Lulu! She even knows five extras well already (leave it, shake, paws up, spin and high-five - who knows what she’ll accomplish in round two?!).

Show off!

Lulu continues to amaze. She loves to run and play.  Her inmate trainer says that watching Lulu run and play is a true joy.  Her most prized possession is a two foot long orange and black snake with lots of squeakers. She goes absolutely bonkers over it! Running around the room, butt hugging the ground to keep her from tumbling over. She even stalks the toy from across the room. Creeping up on it and pouncing on it like a tiger. Lulu is so much fun to have around. Her forever family is going to have a blast with this little one.


As the Puppy Turns

Howdy, Lulu fans!

Welcome to the end of week 5. The first thing on the agenda is to proudly announce that Lulu is now a big girl! She has successfully made it a full week with no potty accidents, and has earned her stay in a big kennel. So now that they’ve overcome her biggest stumbling block, let’s take a moment to talk about the week’s story and the headline for week five, “As the Puppy Turns.”

Her trainer is inspired by the running instincts bred into greyhounds, so at least once a day he takes Lulu into the training room to play. Her most beloved toy is the two foot long orange and black snake. With three squeakers in it! She gets going with it and just goes nuts over that thing, running so fast that her little butt has to hug the ground to keep from tumbling over! Even her crooked ears will straighten out and lie down for better aerodynamics. She even stalks the toy from across the room, creeping up on it and pouncing like a jungle kitty.

Until next week, y’all take care!

Bath time fun!

Lulu’s inmate trainer says there are many memorable moments with sweet Lulu.  She’s all cute puppy and fun.  She’s learning about potty times, but still has a little trouble holding it until potty time. She had a little accident in her crate so after her inmate trainer got the crate all cleaned up, he gave Lulu a bath… in the mop bucket.   He says he fills the bucket about ½ full and she sits down in the bucket and gives him sweet innocent puppy eyes.   She seems to enjoy getting her bath and waits patiently till her trainer is finished.  He says that when her takes her out, she tries to jump right back in the bucket!

Her inmate trainer says that Lulu sure knows how to keep him laughing. She’s his pride and joy and he loves having her around

Goofy Girl

Dear followers of Little Lulu,

Welcome to the end of week three and beginning of week four in Lulu’s very first session! Allow us to catch you up on what’s been going on in the life of this little puppy. First, she has adorable, crazy ears. It seems like every day they’ve been maneuvered or bent in a different direction. From a distance, sometimes she looks like a cartoon bat! And when she runs, she hops along like a little kangaroo.

Lulu is so cute in her daily life. She’s in the midst of potty training and her trainer says he’s never seen a pee take THAT long, especially for such a little dog! The other day, she peed seven times in one hour. She’s on a “tight leash” with her water breaks, but her trainer thinks she may have learned some doggone way to pick locks and get her own water!

Lulu is learning like a champ, and so far, she knows all of her commands (and then some!). She is excelling and is something of a celebrity here – everyone loves her, and we know you will, too!

Little Girl. Big Personality.

Even though it’s only the second week into this training session it’s Ms. Lulu’s fifth week.  Lulu is 12 weeks old and 14 pounds!  Her inmate trainer says she’s growing really fast!  She’s started running in the small yard while the bigger dogs run in the big yard.  They go up and down the fence line running and playing!  He says it’s a real treat to watch.  

Lulu and Foxy have become best friends.  They get along great!  They lay on the bed together, share toys, treats and chase each other around the training room.  He says that Lulu is hands down the most attentive greyhound he’s ever worked with. She’s incredibly smart and learns things quickly.  

Lulu’s trainer says that these past weeks have been the best!  She fills his days with love and joy!  

Little Superstar!

Boy Oh Boy!  When it comes to Little Miss LuLu, where does her trainer start?  Here goes… She came into her trainer’s life in the middle of November.  She was a tiny little thing.  Around 8 lbs. One month later and she’s grown to a whopping 13 lbs.  She’s getting bigger by the day and so is her personality and cuteness!!  There’s no end to the fun, laughs and memorable moments she gives to everyone with her little puppy ways 

LuLu is a little superstar at the prison.  Everyone knows her. Everyone loves her, and everyone comes by the dorm just to sneak a peek of her. There’s so much her trainer wants to tell you about her, but it’s gonna have to wait until next week.
