hi everyone, i just wanted to let you all know that this sunday, july 12th is the annual mulberry court yard sale. it will run from 9 to 3 and it is just one block south of hawthorne on 12th avenue.
this year's yard sale is important to me because i will be working towards earning money for little lulu's medical condition. lulu is only a year and a half old but she has lost most of her vision due to juvenile cataracts. i have an appointment on monday with a specialist when i will see if she is a candidate for cataract surgery.
i found lulu on the website www.kijiji.com one day on a whim when i typed in "puppies". little did i know that i would meet my destiny as a doggie momma that day. lulu was purchased by her former family to be a breeding dog but when they discovered her eye issue, they put her up for adoption. i was the lucky girl to adopt her. she has been such a gift to my life and i'm so happy i found her.
i knew her eyes would be an issue but it has progressed much faster than i thought it would and now i need to address the problem as i can't bear the thought of her going completely blind at such a young age.
the proceeds from my portion of the yard sale will go to little lulu and i will also have some baked goods such as cupcakes to sell for donations.
so if you happen to be in the neighborhood, stop over, buy some good junk and say hi to lulu.
