This weekend we will celebrate five years of life with our dog Lulu Belle. She was a rescue that a friend from work found and we decided to give her a forever home. She came to us battered with lots of scars, our only guess is that someone was not very kind to her. At first she had some aggression issues with our other dog, Billy, but he is such a gentle giant that he won her over and they soon became fast friends. We worried about her while I was pregnant; wondering how she would react to the baby. All our worries subsided after a few weeks. She is his dog now. She is always close by, whether he is awake or asleep. One of her favorite places to be is under his bed where she can watch him play, but be out of the way where she won't get stepped on or tripped over. Earlier this week I caught the two of them in his room spending some quiet time together (please excuse the mess... actually this is pretty clean for him!) and I thought this is the picture I want defining the love these two have for one another.
And then nap time on Friday came. I do what we do each day, turn off all the noise and lay down (usually on the couch because he prefers to snuggle with his Momma) and I slowly sing him to sleep. Like I said this is our daily ritual, and usually our three dogs join us and find a place to lay down as well. Well on Friday Lulu had already made a nest on the couch and we chose the spot right next to her. As I sang my lullabies Lulu began to snore and Eric followed. Below is the picture I snapped of the two of them in dreamland.
So a big happy birthday to our Lulu. Our lives and our family would not be the same without you.
Hi, I'm Melissa. I am a wife, mother, step-mother, Gigi (step-grandma) and a photographer. I started out as the family member always asked to bring my camera along and it has turned into my life dream. I just love being able to capture moments for others that they can always cherish.This is my little corner to share my sessions, projects, and a little piece of our daily life. Thanks for stopping by!
