As of today we have had Lexi for one week. It feels like so much longer! It has been such a great week and we couldn’t be happier. We are so incredibly lucky to have this beautiful girl in our lives. Despite an awful start to life, Lexi has opened her heart to us and given us her trust. We promise you, Lexi, that we will never betray the trust you have placed in us. We promise to give you belly rubs, soft blankets to sleep on, kisses on your little brown nose, good food to keep you healthy, and the medical care you need to continue to heal. We will give you the forever home you deserve, the life you have always dreamed of. You deserve nothing less.
Now, for tonight’s final picture, the highlight of today:
We had some brief butt-to-butt lounging on the couch today! We are still moving carefully – Zev does get a bit jealous when Lexi gets our attention and he is still getting used to sharing his house with another dog. Even so, he and Lexi both have been wonderful and patient with each other, and really like each other. Pretty awesome, especially for a big, dominant, dog-selective moose and a rescue with a pretty mysterious past wrought with neglect. John and I are so proud of these two and the progress we are all making. With some more time we will see more and more of these two cuddling on the same couch.
Well, that’s it for tonight. Tomorrow has been designated as bath day for Lexi at my parents’ house in their huge bathtub! I am sure she will be a good girl for me :). Till tomorrow!
