More lovingly referred to as London Lu, London Luis, Lundy, Lundy Lu, LuLu, LuLu Bear, Shmulu Bear, Shmulee Bear.
Her given name was Lady London of Bethel Court, paid homeage to a family Schnauzer we had growing up-named Princess Kirby of Buckingham Path.
London passed away on Christmas Eve, 2023, in one of her favorite spots-snuggling in the bend of her dads knee. She was 4 years old.
London was a Liver Phantom Teacup Schnauzer, born to Beegee and Legend on May 31st, 2019. She was delivered via stork(United Airlines) from her home in Utah to her newly adoptive family in Faribault, MN. She had 2 puppy brothers-Bohdi & Tucker, and a human family(Wayd, Erin, Austin, Alexis, Ava & Asher) that loved her oh so much.
London did her princess prance into our home and immediately into our hearts on July 26th, 2019 at 8 weeks old. She was 1 pound. She never surpassed more than slightly over 4 pounds in her life with us, she was small but mighty, and our perpetual puppy.
London was the leader of the pack, and both Bohdi, 8lbs and Tucker, 90 pounds, knew she was in charge. (And so did her humans).
London the eternal traveler, has forever etched her presence into the landscape of our memories. She travelled far and wide with us, spending her first few days at Waterama in Glenwood, being gushed over at each stop we made.
We will miss throwing her favorite squeaker toys and watching her win the race to get to them before Bohdi, she may have been small but she was also fast. And if you said the word treat or even just walked near her favorite treats, she would firmly plant herself in a sit position, ears wiggling with excitement, and not so patiently waiting for her hand delivered favorites.
London loved car rides, boat rides, bike basket rides, side pack rides, dog park visits, the white couch in the sunroom in Wabasha, family reunions at Mille Lacs Lake, and pup cups from Caribou and Dairy Queen. She was the ultimate snuggler. She would lay her head in your neck and gently nose your chin, giving you a little bump on your hand to let you know you should not stop petting. She loved belly rubs, and would give what we called a “notification” bark to let us know when she was ready to be hoisted up into bed. She did a little hop into your hand to assist with her pick up. Her whole body wiggled with excitement when her family arrived home from work and school.
She had a teddy bear face, a side eye look, and the best puppy personality.
She had a loud bark for anyone entering her home, all 4 pounds of her was fiercely protective of her family.
Even in her final days, London just wanted us to be happy. She was patient and compliant with all of the things we tried to do to save her, we would have moved mountains to save this puppy and she was there for every minute of it. In the end, her kidneys would not allow her to go on, and she went to sleep peacefully.
We will miss her in a million ways, and will think about her every day.
We hope we get to see you again our little London Lu.
