Today is a sad day  
I didn't plan on making a post today but I got to looking at pictures of Lulu on flickr and wanted to share some of my favorites. It's been four years since she passed away and we are still so emotional. She would have been five years old today and she passed away at only two. She was such a sweet girl and we miss her terribly. Clementine is Lulu's half sister and that does bring comfort to us knowing she shares the same blood as our sweet girl. These pictures were taken long before I even knew what a dslr was so please excuse the quality.

Awhile back my 365 photo project prompt was “One joy scatters a hundred griefs.” This is what I wrote about it:
The dog in the painting is Lulu Belle. Our boston terrier that died in 2007. Clementine is Lulu's half sister. They have the same dad. Losing Lulu Belle was probably the hardest thing I have experienced in life so far. Clementine brings so much joy into our life. Because of who she is and also knowing that she shares the same blood as our Lulu Belle. Thank you to my wonderful cousin www.flickr.com/photos/ebiggs/ for coming up with this idea for me.
Here is the photo

Last but not least I wanted to share a video montage that someone made for me when Lulu passed away. I can't thank this person enough for making this video for me. It means the world to me and is something I truly cherish.

I am feeling: sadsad

I'm so sorry for your loss, and it grabbed my heart because my red Boston is named Lulu too - and I thought about how sad I would be if she left me.

What a beautiful thing it is to have these dogs in our lives, and I'm so glad you have her half-sister, Clementine.

I still remember that Lulu was one of the first babies I saw when I joined the community and we all fell in love with her through your postings. I cried my eyes out for you when she passed, and whenever I see a red Boston I think of her. I know she's running around crazy in Boston heaven and loving you all from afar. Lots of love and puppy kisses from me and my Charlie <3

I'm a newbie to the group(in the past 6months) and was curious. I looked back thru the old entries. Lulu was quite the fighter. So beautiful and charming. I bawled like a baby and clutched my Pugbug(aka Pugsley my lil 6yr old boston baby and first dog ever). I am so sorry for your loss. She will always be remembered and loved. You are an exceptional mommy to her. And michaels letter, so heartwrenching, it just goes to show how much she was loved. Although she was only 2, she touched many people(all those that helped out, sent smiles, and sent their love).

*hugs* my thoughts are with you.

Awe you are so sweet to go searching and then reading all that. That must have took some time. Thank you for your comment :)

Maybe you remember that we "met" when I donated to Lulu's hospital fund? I loved all the pictures and stories you used to post about the babies, and her story really touched me. I'm so glad you had her, even if it was for a short time. I think the picture of her running on the beach is the best one, and I've told you before, I believe that is what she is doing now. Sending puppy kisses from Zoie the BT in San Francisco (formerly of Las Vegas!)

Christina yes of course!!!! I am SOOOOOOOOOOO grateful to everyone who donated. I sent every single person a Christmas card that year and it was over 100 people!!! Those donations helped me so much. Her vet bills were over $5,000.

♥ to you and Zoie.
