Favorite Walk:
Update I've gotten so much better on the leash that now we go walking a couple of times a week. Going to the junior high with lots of acres to run in off leash.

Best Tricks:
Faking Wade out to take whatever he has that she wants. Giving us the martyr look when she feels slighted. Putting her paws on my shoulder to have her "underneath" scratched. Sneezing when she wants to play.

Arrival Story:
I had been pestering my husband about getting a dog since we moved into our new house. He announced one day that he needed to go to the mall to buy jeans and wanted me to go with. What he really wanted was to surprise me by taking me to the adoptathon the Humane Society was having. There she was with her brother Oreo who we adopted two months after we got her. Lexie is not a very social dog, but if your on her list she's your friend for life.

Bio:
Lexie was born under a house on 1/1/2003. The mother dog died and her owner turned the puppies over to the Baytown Animal shelter. A wonderful foster mom tube fed the puppies for the first few weeks of their life. Lexie can be very manipulative and her feelings get hurt easily. When she's upset she'll do the most amazing martyr act, she sits with her back to you but will look over her shoulder to make sure you're noticing that she's dissing you. She can't stand a raised voice, no matter who it's directed to. She has sad eyes and often looks like she's lost her best friend. But having said that she's also very playful and loves to wrestle her brother Wade. She also loves to run and play tag or chase with mom. She is the most loving animal I've ever owned. As she's gotten older she become a beautiful dog. She definitely has my heart.

Lexie lost her battle with renal failure on Monday. She's always had issues with her kidneys and it's something that we treated in one way or another most of her life. Three weeks ago we realized that she wasn't feeling well and took her in, our worst fears were realized when they told us her kidney function was not good and she was border line anemic. We tried a cocktail of meds that seemed to help for a while but it became obvious that it wasn't going to work in the long run and we made the heartbreaking decision to end her suffering on Monday morning. My heart hurts and I still can't believe that she's gone, I keep expecting to hear her bark when I get home and to have her lay next to me on the couch at night to watch TV. We love you Lexie Lou and we'll miss you forever, but I know Oreo was waiting on you when you crossed the bridge and now you and your brother can run and play just like you used to.

 

Hurricane Ike - GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!

We live in the Gulf Coast area of Texas and this weekend we had a hurricane named Ike.

Mom took me, Wade and Thomas to Nana's house last Thursday. I really like my Nana but I've never been to her house before. She has 3 1/2 acres to roam but she has 3 dogs of her own, one of which is a huge old cranky Lab mix named Sam. He didn't like me and Wade being there at all. He's very protective of Nana and of my mom (hey that's mine and Wade's job!) so if we got near either of them or around the other dogs he got pissy and growled, a lot.

There's a smaller one named Casey and she was cool at first but on Saturday she decided she didn't want to share me with my own mom, (I'm going to have to have a talk with mom to find exactly what goes on when she's at Nana's without me) and it was time to fight. OMG! Wade came in to protect me and then Sam came in to protect everyone. Luckily my dad was there, his booming voice made everyone stop. I have a couple of scrapes and a scab on my side but overall it wasn't as bad as it could have been. The rest of Saturday and Sunday morning, someone made sure they were between me and Casey at all times.

We came home on Sunday morning, that was a little scary too, there weren't any lights and trees and water were on the road in some spots. At one point I almost got sick, but dad stopped and took me for a little walk and I was fine afterwards. When we got to our house it was all boarded up and there wasn't any lights and it was raining, hard.

We slept Sunday and most of Monday but Tuesday Wade and I were ready to play, the weather turned off cool the electric is on and mom and dad are feeling better and when they feel good we feel good.

 

Update #2

Okay it's been a week and I'm back to my old self again, I've been rough housing with my brother which made mom and dad really happy. I'm eating good too so that's a positive sign. I've had the poops a little lately but mom is watching to see if it gets better or if it continues. She thought I had a tummy ache the other day when I felt bad and I was on bland food for a week and I've been back on my regular Hills Science Diet for a few days so it may just be the change of food. If it continues, (and mom and dad are watching my every move) they are going to switch me to a sensitive tummy food.

The only drag is they shaved my belly in order to do my ultrasound and it doesn't seem to be growing back. Mom is promising (threatening) to get me a sweater if it doesn't hurry up and grow. Not sure how I feel about that.
