American Julia Morley and chihuahua Lu-Seal met at a dog shelter in Pittsburgh. The girls fell in love, though at the time, they didn’t yet know how many adventures (and a bit of Instagram fame) awaited them together.

 “We Immediately Loved Each Other!”

The moment our heroines met, they immediately faced their first challenge together. Lu-Seal was incredibly fat – she weighed over 7 pounds, about two times more than a dog of her breed and size should. Julia decided not to waste any time and fight for the health of her new charge.

“We’re Getting in Shape!”

The woman walked Lu-Seal as often as possible and fed her only healthy food in a balanced form. Both things were relatively new and challenging for the puppy. So it wasn’t easy, but thanks to a ton of patience and a strong bond between our two heroines, the chihuahua lost weight to her average weight. And this undoubted success moments later proved to be another problem….

Hole in the Whole

Not long after Lu-Seal became a slim, agile, and bouncy dog, a new fence was installed in front of Julia’s house. While the old Lu-Seal wouldn’t have been able to squeeze through it for anything, in her slimmed-down version, she could go through the bars without a problem. And she went through them as often as she saw one of her favorite neighbors who used to feed her treats – in other words, she went through them several times a day.

“I’ll Attach a Big-a*s Spoon to Her Back!”

Julia didn’t want her pet to get run over by a car. She ordered to fix to make the gaps between the bars. But the fence contractor was not able to do it right away. The woman had to find a temporary solution. Someone on the internet jokingly suggested that she attach a giant wooden “safety bucket” to Lu-Seal’s back.

Julia is probably someone who took it very literally because she took the spoon idea very seriously. And then she made a funny video that has over a dozen views.

Lu-Seal, with a substantial wooden spoon on her back, ran only for a week, but she became so popular thanks to it that Julia even started selling T-shirts with her image:
