I was going through some images I took around the house and thought I’d give a Lexi update. She is as smart as ever and it seriously amazes me sometimes what she seems to be able to understand. I’ve only had outside dogs growing up so I never had the same bond with a dog as I do with Lexi. Plus, I just think she is pretty special. 🙂
Here she is in her favorite spot. She has basically claimed this purple blanket as her own. I can only use it with strict supervision. (And these were taken right after Christmas. Our decorates are down. 🙂 )
Speaking of Christmas, Lexi got a new bed from Santa. She is at the stage of chewing up all of her toys. I cannot find a bed that she won’t tear into and chew up. I had been getting my dog beds at Ross or TJ Maxx but decided that they aren’t put together well enough to uphold Lexi’s terror. So I found this one at Target and thought it looks better constructed than others we have tried. It has a coutour solid foam and most importantly a solid bottom (mesh bottoms don’t hold up well). Just a zipper so that the cover can come off to be washed. No stuffing except in the pillow. Well…her bed didn’t last long. The pillow was torn up in matter of minutes and it took her a few weeks to get through the zipper. I am tired of going through beds with her. If anyone has any suggestions we’d love to hear it! I especially don’t want to spend a lot of money since I am worried about what she will do. She doesn’t chew up anything else just her toys (thank goodness). She likes the challenge of getting to the stuffing. She never eats it just tears it apart.
Lexi also got her very own stocking full of treats, a new collar and a toy.
Here is what her bed looks like now (taken with my phone). Well actually it is in the trash. 🙁
Lexi loves them too! They are decent size treats for her so she is always happy to get one.
I’ll leave you with some portraits I took after her recent grooming. She has so much hair I feel like she always just looks unkempt. That is what we love about her though. 🙂
