Lula R. Chessie
?? – March 29, 2013 (approximate age 11 or 12)

This is a post I knew I would one day have to write, but I thought it would be sooner and for that I am grateful. Lula passed away on Good Friday (March 29th).  Lula came to live with me in November of 2009. All she wanted was to live in my garage in a crate. Fortunately, I refused to allow that and over time she decided she much preferred the creature comforts offered by a house. So began the 3.5 year journey we shared. Lula taught me so much about Chessies, rescues, disabilities, survival and just plain life. She came with a mysterious past which I will never completely know, but she certainly made an impression I will never forget. Although Lula is now running like the wind at the Rainbow Bridge, I will continue to share the wisdom and lessons she taught me. There are Lula stories left to be told and I will.

Roll on sweet Lula, you were one-of-a-kind.

Tribute video put together by one of Lula’s friends. Thanks Charlie.

    Thanks to your friend Charlie for putting this together, and thank you for sharing it with us. Some great photos of Lula. I liked the musical selections, especially True Colors, which seemed deeply appropriate for Lula.

    Lula like Al were one of a kind–Neither will ever be forgotten. May they both run together with the wind at the Rainbow Bridge! RIP Lula and Al
