A very special puppy was born on April 27, 2008 in Virginia that would bring myself and so many other people joy, unconditional love, support, and company. I met Sharon in the the parking lot of McDonald’s late one September evening on the way back home from Tennessee to just LOOK at a puppy! Well we all know you can’t just look. Of course this little (maybe 3 pound) bundle of joy started the long journey home with Tasha, my 8 year old Lowchen, and I. Lexie sat between my neck and the headrest making this nervous little clicking noise all the way home. She was just what we needed after our family lost someone very important 5 weeks earlier.
Lexie was the sweetest girl ever. She liked everyone she ever met. She traveled just about every where with me. We visited all parts of Ohio, Pennsylvania, Kentucky, Tennessee and Arkansas just to name a few. Whether via private jet, car or truck she was always excited to get in, sit on my shoulders and watch the world pass by. There were some trips she couldn’t accompany us on but don’t worry she had many people to love her and care for her in our absence. Those times were spent with her sister person Jessica and brothers-in-law Steve and her nephews Bryce, Blake, Brady and canine cousins Cooper and Lucy. She also had a second set of parents Aunt Gloria and Uncle Chuck who I’m sure she would tell you took better care of her then I did. She loved taking a daily walk or as she got older a ride in the stroller with Aunt Gloria with a rest stop at Elizabeth and Charlie’s house for a treat and the best water in town. Then every night she slept on most of Uncle Chuck’s pillow.
At home she was cared for by Francis and I. Gracie, Hope, Buster and Dunkin, her feline sisters and brothers sometimes made a game out of running and jumping over her. When the cheese came out they all gathered round, Lexie was just one of the gang. I can Tell they are missing their little sister very much. She spent every evening securely tucked between the arm of the loveseat and Francis. She slept on her own pillow above my head every night. These were her favorite spots inside. She enjoyed walking around the big yard barking at her doggy neighbors, motorcycles, bicycles, greeting people walking down the street and looking for bunnies to chase.
The last twelve years were made very special because Lexie was always there for me. She filled my heart and a lot of other people’s hearts with happiness and love. I’m so glad she was there with us all those years but we definitely wish she could have stayed a lot longer. She will be sadly missed by all who knew and loved her. Now she’ll take all her love and happiness to Tasha, Grandma, Grandpa, all our family, friends and pets up in heaven. We know she’ll be there to greet us all in heaven.
