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.
