In Loving Memory of Lexus Arizona, "Lexi-Dog"

As I mentioned, my friend Amy had to have her adored Lexi-Dog put to sleep on Monday. Today, I received a two-page memorial from Amy, containing The Rainbow Bridge, A Dog's Prayer, and three beautiful pictures of Lexi.

I have never liked small dogs, but Lexi looked like a mini version of the younger of my two dogs, and was just the sweetest, smartest little thing. She was not even remotely yappy, was very smart and a total cuddle bunny.

Nothing but a very long time will ease the ache that comes from the loss of a pet. They're here for such a short time, but give and receive so much love in their little time that a part of us dies when they do. I'm not much for prayer, but I do pray that the rainbow bridge really exists, and that there will be many joyful reunions.

Until that time, Lexi, may you run free.

afraid to commit in Eerie, PA said...

see this is why i dont know if i could handle having an animal - i mean lets say i get Loco the cat and something where to happen to the poor thing - i would be heartbroken...

i mean the story above the feral cat has me thinking of figuring out how to tame and adopt the poor little thing...

i mean if anyone has ever seen the episodes of the Honeymooners where Ralph desides to bring a dog to the pound because he doesn't want it around, only to have a change of heart and bring that dog and about three others home with him - thats me all over....

sigh...

can't even commit to a blasted animal....
