Being by her "mamma"
HATES having her nails trimmed and feet messed with at all!
Dosen't have a favorite at present unless it's mamma
Ukanuba dog food and treats esp. Charlie Bears
anywhere..she loves to take in all the sights and sounds
opening up the crates for her sisters,knowing "Drop it" and other sommands
I had been very sick for quite awhile. It all started with a bad fall, then Fibromyalgia, other stuff, and depression. It got so bad I would lay in bed in pain and wonder is this all there is to this life? I was also alone and lonely, husband at work long hours and kids gone for years now. Then one day I decided to go looking for a dog per my dau's suggestion. I needed someone else in the house. I decided on a Maltese. I had to leave the first Maltese I had chosen because it ended up she was so very sick! I cried like a baby and didn't go looking for a puppy again for about 6 months. My dau. knew a guy who was an "inspector" so she asked him where we could go to get a healthy Maltese. Maltese around this area are a bit hard to find....so the day finally came. I went to meet the little 2 lb.2oz. fur ball that would save my life! When I first saw Lexi and the guy handed her to me I cried uncontrollably...now usually I am not so emotional but I had given up on ever finding a healthy Maltese and this little girl was healthy. I swear Lexi and I bonded right then and there, the guy handed her to me and I was sobbing. He had to talk to my dau. while I tried to get control of myself. I held her up to my face and neck and at first Lexi just sank into my body, then she started licking me and that was it, I knew she was the one for me. He showed me other Malt females but there was no doubt I wanted Lexi. I took her home that very day. Because I had been so sick and felt so hopeless I told myself if we had to I would put pillows on the floor and play with Lexi on the floor. We did that but in no time I was getting up and taking Lexi for walks and little by little my days were filled with whats best for Lexi...buying toys, dresses, and necklaces. My pain and despair turned into less pain and certainly not dispair! I named Lexi, Lexi because I liked the name and Hope because she was my hope for better things to come and boy did they!!! This precious little furball had a persoanlity that was too huge and always keeping me on the go, which turned out to be the best medicine for me...she kept me laughing...she showed me love, she even stood on the dishwasher to make sure I was getting that done. :)At Christmas time our home was filled with taking pictures of Lexi in her C-mas dress and matching necklace. There really are no words to explain what all Lexi means to me...she is the world...because of my love for her I made myself take better care of me. Funny just as I was writing this I realized I took myself off of all pain medication last October!! Honestly my heart just may be beating today because of her. Thats why I call her my Heart!

Hi every fur and pawrent,
I have corralled mamma and told her we HAVE to update our friends...we have had sooo much going on and it just dosen't seem to end...it has gotton a little better though.....the latest news is my grandpa is going to be moved to a nursing home in another state..he will live by mamma's brother and his wife....we will miss our grandpa terribly but he will be better off there mamma says...my grandpa(human) always loved me best...thats what mamma says and I know it to be true..well just a couple weeks ago my grandpa didn't know who I was or recognize my name or anything....it made us sad...but anyway mamma's brother and the rest of the family feel like mamma can't do this all alone and grandpa will have better care at this new place..and mamma's sister in law works there so she will see him lots and this new home is about 3 blocks from her brothers house. Mamma says it is out of love that we have to let grandpa go so he will get better care and more attention. My human grandma won't go see grandpa and hasn't since last July. Our daddy as you know has some problems but he and mamma are very strong and doing their best to stay happy and just "carry on."
As far as our dog family goes...we have had some changes...some of you will understand and others of you won't ...mamma says she gets that...but we had to let Natti and Teddy go to other homes. Natti esp. made daddy awfully nervous and one night she attacked me pretty bad and mamma was sooo upset...daddy too....they just knew they couldn't spend their lives "policing" Natti so we let Natti go...thats the sad news but the great news is she got a great home. Infact the lady who is Natti's new mom and has been for abt 7 months loves Natti to death! She knew Nattis from before and when mamma asked her first if she wanted Natti...she cried and cried, she was sooo happy. It just happened that her old doggie had gone to the Bridge and she had been very depressed and sad and the day mamma offered her Natti was also her birthday! She thinks Natti is her angel!! We are happy for Natti.!! Teddy...oh how we loved Teddy too but it ended up that Teddy had what the professionals involved called a huge "prey drive"...and all he ever wanted to do was run us down...he even thought Tiny was a toy and our fear was he would pick him up and toss him in the air! It wasn't easy letting either Natti or Teddy go but in the end the pros said we couldn't train the prey drive out of Teddy...that was just part of him and he got to be a big boy!! He was sooo smart..anyway he has a family who loves him very much..they live in Nebraska and he has a brother just like him (same breed) and we have seen videos of them playing and he is having a blast. We are also very happy for Teddy! The rest of we furkids are fine....oh Sadie and Heaven returned to their home many months ago also..after daddys diagnosis. They were mamma and daddys grand dogs. After daddys diagnosis at first mamma and daddy decided they would have to change their life styles which meant no more dogs...but after awhile ( acouple months) they decided to go back to the life they loved and make the most of it sooo we have added 2 fur kids to our family....thats another nights writing though. Our new baby sister has only been here 3 weeks...she is an awesome and fun little gal and we also have a new girl mamma and daddy rescued...both are working out just great and will probably finish out our family. We hope this reaches you all well and happy.
Lexi and family!

Hi everyfur and every pawrent,
We have been gone for a little while...mommy and daddy went on a 20 day trip! Mamma thought she'd die with out us with her but she made it..it was the longest time away from us she had ever been.Daddy too. We are also facing an illness with my daddy that isn't going to go away..it also will not take him away from us soon but we have had to make some adjustments to our lives....then mamma esp. has been missing Angel and got somewhat depressed over that but she is trying to do better. We see LOTS of our very special friends have left us gifts and comments and mamma says we will get to you all one by one. Thank you for remembering us.
