Lulu is the newest member of the clan.  Lulu was rescued from an animal hoarder/backyard breeder in September 2010.  Turns out, she had been knocked up during the rescue process, and Lulu gave birth in October while under the care of Dog Habitat Rescue here in Brooklyn.  We began fostering Lulu in late January 2011 after her puppy Lily went to a forever home.  After a few months and several adoption events, Lulu was adopted by a lady in the neighborhood.  But then she came back.  I like to think that she sabotaged the adoption because she missed us.  She smiled her way into our hearts, and we sealed the deal and adopted little Lulu on Cinco de Mayo, 2011.  Lulu is a great dancer, a steady hiker and a lot of fun.  She and Betelgeuse are truly best of friends -- they play, wrestle, cuddle, and groom each other.  And now I finally have an animal in the house who actually appreciates a good pet bed!
