Sleeps with Dogs
 
Today's Tutu Tuesday is dedicated to Boston.

For the story behind this special photo, check out the Tutu Tuesday post: For the Love of Piggie.
 
My girl Ellie (divadog on the right) loved to dress up. 
Her pal Gracie, not so much. Gracie tolerated the tutu torture for her mom and Auntie DogMa.
I'm so glad she was a supaw good sport - cause this is one of my favorite photos of the glamourpaws.
Not only did they match in markings and color, they matched in spirit too.
This Tutu Tuesday is dedicated to friends furever in our hearts.

By now, most of the world has heard about Lennox.
Lennox was killed for what he looked like, not who he was:
a loving, loyal family dog and best friend to a disabled girl. 
What the Belfast City Council did to Lennox is murder. They killed an innocent dog.
I believe Lennox's legacy is bringing the global dog community together to fight Breed Specific Legislation. 
His story has ignited the fight in millions of people. If a dog can be killed for the way he looks, so can we all. 
If someone wants to create laws to do away with brown-eyed people, I'm at risk.
 How many of you would be too? 
That is the absurdity of BSL.

Please join Sleeps with Dogs in the fight against BSL.

I am Lennox. 
You are Lennox. 
We are Lennox.

And DogMa too...
Thank you to our pawmazing pals Snuggle Bulls for this touching tribute video.

It was a few days after Blu crossed-over to the Rainbow Bridge. I walked across the foot bridge to Poo Island and there, on the fence post, was a ladybug. I knew immediately it was Blu. Crazy huh? Perhaps, but Blu would so be a ladybug. He was a big, strappin' dude with a girlie side. I can't help but chuckle a bit.

Confirmation of Blu's newly defined bugness came a couple days later when, again on Poo Island,  he appeared on a bamboo chute. I was giddy with delight.

Now, when I see my sweet, old guy in the yard, I smile and say, "Hi Blu."  

Remind me to one day tell y'all how Donkey the wonder Weim is a black moth.
 
Nine years ago, my life changed forever. It was the moment I waited my entire life for - I adopted my first dog - from the Atlanta Humane Society. The four-year-old handsome hound mix's name was Blue. I dropped the "e" so my boy wouldn't have bad memories of his life before that fateful day, October 25, 2003. 

I remember how Blu gave me a kiss during our ride home from the Humane Society. It was then, I knew we were meant to share our lives. Blu was the inspiration behind Sleeps with Dogs.

Blu Moon Webb (Spring 2004)

Blu was a true Dog-ma's boy. He liked to just hang and chill near his mom, esp. while basking in some sunlight. He also loved treats any time and all the time.

Blu loved visiting his Auntie Jeannie's lake house in South Carolina. He enjoyed soaking in the fresh air while cruising on the lake. Blu truly felt like he was on vacation and always cherished every minute of his stay. Blu loved life, surrounded by the people and pooches he adored.

January 6th was a devastatingly sad day. While in Dog-Ma's arms, Blu crossed to the bridge. He took a big piece of me with him. He was my first. He was my heart. He was my boy. He was my Blu. Run free my love. Thank you for the last 9 years. They were the best with you. ♥
