We love you Lexxy!! You will be missed dearly!

Lexxy Li Chin 
1998-2011
Hi all,
  A week ago today we had to make the heart wrenching decision to have our beloved pekingese, Lexxy laid to rest.  She gave us 13 years of pure joy!  She was much more than just the family pet, she was a whole hearted member.

  I remember like it was yesterday when my husband and I went to the breeders house.  Out came this big ball of fur, not much bigger than a saucer with a teeny curled up tail.  She went straight over to my husband and laid her chin on his foot.  He looked up at the breeder and said, "We're done."  Then off the three of us went home.  While she loved us all, from that moment on, she was definitely a Daddy's girl

  There are so many fond memories of our little fatty patty, but I will share one funny one with you now.  My husband and I had had a long day, so we decided to make a very simple dinner of hot dogs.  We had had Lexxy for about a month, so she was still under foot constantly trying to pull off our socks (I think this is when I began to love walking barefoot!), and demanding our undivided attention, which we willing always gave.  My husband decided he would sit on the floor in front of the TV so that his "little baby" could sit close by.  My husband turned for just a moment to put his Coke on the coffee table, and BAM!  Lightening fast, our dear sweet angel grabbed the end of that hot dog, so temptingly poking out of the bun, and yanked it right out.  Imagine a magician yanking a table cloth out from under the plates, accept with ketchup, mustard, and chili!

  Then began the chase....how can something so small run so fast, all the while scoffing down a hot dog like a pelican would a fish?!  Ugh!  So much for a quick meal and a night of relaxation, as we had a mess of condiments all over our beige carpet!  We couldn't help but laugh as we scolded her with a, "Bad Girl!" she puts her chest down on the carpet and butt up in the air, wagging that little curled tail, as if to say...."Let's do that again!"

  I thank God for memories like that.  I know that she was put on this earth by God for our pleasure, and pleasure did we get!

We love you Lexxy!  You will be missed dearly!

Sorry to hear about your sweet pooch. We lost both of our labs almost two years ago. It was heart wrenching. Keeping you in my thoughts!

Awww, what a sweet memory!!!

I know how you feel; we had to make the same decision for our dog, Biscuit this summer; my husband had her since 1998 also. So, she came with him to our marriage in 2001. Anyway, having a pet for so long really does make them a part of the family. Best wishes to you and your family and may God bring you comfort!!
