I met Lexy in October of 2003 through Boxer Rescue
She was just under one year old, and when I went to the foster house
there were 3 dogs and they all ran to the door.
Two of the boxers were uninterested in me, they only wanted to play with each other
but Lexy came right to me and would not leave my side, and for the next 10 years was seldom
further away from me than that first meeting
Lexy came to work with me every day, we went fishing together in our boat "The Lexinator",
when I went to play hockey, Lexy was with me, we were constant companions is as accurate as it could be said.
Every person who met Lexy fell in love, she had a personality like no dog
I have ever known, gentle, loving, and overjoyed to met anyone, for the first time
or the hundredth time she was always the same, and she always sought everyone's approval.
My favourite times were sitting on the couch with her on my lap
somehow she discovered a way to curl herself into a position that made her the size of a basketball
even if the basketball weighed 60 pounds.
Lexy's favorite times were playing "stick" she would find a stick - the bigger the better - and bring it to me to throw,
She would chase after it and prance around as proud as a peacock after she fetched it, the bigger the stick the prouder
she was - once she found an 8 foot long 2x4 - it took her a few trys - but she managed to pick it up and bring it to me.
She was incredible and she made me proud too.
Lexy left me in her sleep, without a single hint anything was wrong
she had a full day, ate her full dinner, and without warning she was gone.
I think it was her way of saying " I don't want to burden you with worry but its my time to go "
I was so blessed to have had such a wonderful girl
On the occasions when I had to travel for work I would leave her with the small boarding facility at our veterinarians clinic
and it became obvious what a special girl she was when I told our vet Lexy was gone and she started to cry too.
Lexy will be missed very much by everyone who knew her
she was one in a million
