We lost our sweet beagle Lulu to time. Lulu was adopted from the Humane Society and we were told she was 6. This was before we had kids. Lulu and our beagle Charlie were fast friends who always had their eyes on us. Nearest we can figure is Lulu was closing in on 20 years old. As a younger pup she would jump up on the kitchen table and watch the world go by telling anything that got too close to our house to keep on moving. She was our guardian. She will be missed.
