She is about 12 weeks old here and I found her to be super sweet, intelligent, curios and oh-so-soft and cuddly.
These are awful pictures that do not do her justice, but it is hard to get good photos of a blue-grey puppy on grey snow on a very grey day.
The dark bits you see on her are not dirt, they are dark points like you might see on a Siamese cat. The horse behind her is Rosie, the foundered mare whose feet I have been working on. She has significant rotation in both front feet, but she is making great progress, which you can see in her alert gaze and nice square stance. She was feeling good on this day that we had to chase her a bit to catch her for feet trimming.
Lulu has not gotten to fully meet the horses yet, but she is intrigued.
She is trying to decide if she should be worried about horses or if they would be fun to chase.
Lulu is super soft and silky right now, but I confess that I am glad I am not the one who will have to take care of the coat she is going to grow into.
I think she might look a bit like this one day...
I know that if I had a dog like this, I'd end up taking the scissors to her the first time Mud Season hit, which would probably cause Afghan Hound breeders everywhere to have a stroke.
I am super glad to meet Lulu and I am looking forward to watching her grow up. I am also glad that I am not in charge of grooming.
I will stick with cuddling every time I visit. Who could resist a puppy like this after all?
