Remembering Lexi

Many thanks to Deb Barnes of Zee and Zoey’s Cat Chronicles, author of Purr Prints of the Heart – A Cat’s Tale of Life, Death, and Beyond,  and founder of Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day. And to Ann at Zoolatry for hosting this blog hop.

Puppy Lexi
Lexi got her first title in Freestyle Competition in 2016.
Lexi was often used as a prop “the little German dog” at the month-long Rocktoberfest event.
Lexi had to drop out of the Blogville mayoral race due to poor health.

Lexi had many jobs. One was to come to the Methodist church where I worked, where she was loved by everyone. When she passed, the pastor held a memorial service for her, and everyone and their dogs were invited. This short video was taken outside of the church shortly before she crossed the rainbow bridge from the Big C at age 13. Warning: she is barking in it

Lexi was a different personality with whatever was asked of her. She knew her roles, and threw her entire self into each one. This video sums up her joy in life (look at her smile with the children) and her innate desire to bring joy to others.

I know that my heart-dog, my partner, is somewhere over the rainbow, still busy doing the things she loves.

Lexi the Schnauzer: May 7, 2003 – September 4, 2016

I love you, darling girl and think of you often. Your Mom

    1. That play video was of the worst of the 3 productions. Everything was very amateur about it, and I could feel Lexi wanting to tell everyone what they should be doing. She was about 7 then.


  2. Absolutely a beautiful post to Angel Lexi….you two shared so many meaningful experiences freestyle, visiting children and leaving them with smiles and Lexi a stage Starlet.
    A line from one of my favorite movies is, ‘a girls should be the leading lady of her own life’.
    Lexi that was you.

  3. If I could click the heels of sparkling red slippers and bring you back … bring back the joy you brought to so many … it would be done in a moment, no … in a second! But then, heaven and it’s angels would miss you and the joy you’re surely spreading up there … what a special angel you must be … missed here, loved there. Lexi: one of a kind.
