Arrival Story:
LuLu came from the MN Animal Humane Society. We were looking for a new companion after our 16 yr old Lab/Shepherd, Jenny, passed. When we saw LuLu, she reminded us so much of Jenny, we had to have her. We though we were getting a nice "pooch dog" family pet like Jenny. Wow, were we wrong...

Bio:
LuLu had only been with AHS for two days and was recovering from spaying, so pretty mellow. The only thing her bio sheet had about her personality was "Plays rough with the other dogs", and the staff member we were speaking to kept telling us we were not seeing what she was really like. We didn't think much of any of that because after three other dogs over 48 overlapping years, we knew everything about dogs. Right. Well, we took her home and let her out of the car and she shot across our back yard in 4 strides and then rocketed down the street out of sight in about 5 seconds. My slack jawed reaction was, "Wow, that dog's incredibly fast, we have to do something with her!" She made a big loop and a moment later came flying up the driveway from the opposite direction and stood at out feet panting, looking really happy. I looked at her and thought, "This is going to be great!" We started taking her to big off leash parks where she would run for hours at a time and wrestle with every dog she met. We knew she was super fast, but soon found out she was also very strong and agile. One of her signature moves is to come running at a group of bigger dogs and at the last moment get up on her hing legs with her front paws stretched out to the side and launch herself into them, causing lots of commotion as they try to sort out what that thing was that just jumped them. Other athletic dogs love this and will play with her for a long while. We're cross country skiers and started skijoring with her to develop her athletic abilities. She took to it immediately and can pull me through the woods for ten miles or so, with me helping up hills and when she gets a little tired. Our kids can also drive her just as well. I don't know of anything that gets you closer to your dog than skijoring, because you're both attached, obviously, and the interplay with all the commands is priceless. Nothing like cruising down a trail on a sunny winter day with LuLu happy and relaxed, her eyes half closed, pulling hard; this is what she really wants to do. Our introduction to high performance speed dogs has been awesome. There are so many things we do now that we would never have thought of before, she's enriched our lives tremendously.
