I shared the below video on Facebook a few weeks ago yet I still love watching it and can’t think of a good reason not to post it here as well. If you’ve seen it already, well, you can just see it again!
Lulu the Vizsla is Shiva’s first real canine pal. She’s played with hundreds of other dogs at the park but none of those relationships ever lasted beyond fifteen minutes. Since we see Lulu every week at agility class, Shiva has had the opportunity to actually build a stronger connection with her. This is something Shiva has never been able to do with any of the other dogs with whom we’ve practiced. The energy just wasn’t right. This gorgeous Vizsla also has the distinction of being the only dog capable of keeping up with our nutty girl.
In fact, and don’t tell the puppy I said this, I think Lulu actually beats Shiva when it comes to endurance. The Shivster would probably win a short track event but Lulu would definitely take her in a marathon. An impressive feat to be sure.
Unfortunately, silly Lulu has some personal problems of her own that prevent everyone from seeing her fun-loving side. It makes me sad that so often she needs to be isolated from the other dogs in class. Her humans put this video together to prove just how brilliant she is when in a comfortable environment. If you watch all the way though, you should also catch Shiva in a quick cameo appearance. After about five seconds in, I think I’ll see why our two gals make such good friends.
We are so grateful Shiva has a little Lulu in her life. Hopefully we’ll get to see even more of her in the future. Even more, I hope she continues to increase her confidence and shows off her true self more often.
Does your dog have a best friend?
