My Awesome Neighbours Know Lexi VERY Well… and That’s a Good Thing

Apparently a “little white dog” was found at the Kroger’s by a nice lady that lives a subdivision or two away and she was driving around trying to find its owners (which is super awesome).  

And, she asked the people in my neighbourhood with whom I share an acquaintance if they knew anyone in the neighbourhood that had a white dog that might be missing.  They came and rang my doorbell to ask… and Lexi who can be seen from the bottom window of a three pane window kept peeking out, watching me talk to the people about the dog.  Every time the woman driving around was asked, well… what does the dog look like?  She kept pointing to Lexi… 

But, I have relief that if Lexi gets out without her collar on or attempts to run away and slips off of her necklace, that she will be found and brought back to her home, because everyone knows where the cute little white dog in our neighbourhood lives… 

If that doesn’t tell you about her personality, nothing will… 

Do me a solid and tell Mom that I did not move my downstairs bed so that I could see her better in her cupboard under the stairs “office” that she won’t let Lexi in… I don’t know how it got moved, and it’s just a coincidence that she is now in my line of sight no matter where I choose to lay in the bed… And I’m not chewing my paw if she asks, either.  So, we’re square, right?  #lexi #dogs #dogsofinstagram

Delightful Interaction with a Girl who has an Amazing Light

"I like your dog.  Is it a boy or a girl?" the outgoing girl asked after chiding her younger (or twin?) sister for complaining about being, "too tired" on her bike, still with training wheels.  "You need to learn how to control it," I heard her shout just before she spotted Lexi.  

"Girl," I responded. 

"What is her name?"

"Lexi." 

"Awwwwwww." 

And then she rode off after her sister. 

****

"Can I pet your dog?" the same girl said as we came upon each other again.  I spotted her Mom pruning the trees in the park.  I’ve never seen anyone else care for what seems to be public property.  

As I agreed, before I even said anything, the girl crouched into the appropriate stance to allow Lexi to get used to her.  Her sister, the same one who was having trouble with her bike, timidly arrived.  She didn’t want her older sister to know she was afraid, but every time Lexi spun around to face her, she ran.   The youngest of the four was on her tricycle and definitely ran away when Lexi moved suddenly.  Claire was her name and she definitely was afraid of dogs, an announcement the timid one made as she informed me, “I’m not afraid of dogs!”  

Claire, though, was because those cautious eyes followed me, for quite some time after our interaction in the way that eyes do when you want to overcome your fear because it seems silly, but it’s still fear.  

"I’m Chinese," the outgoing girl announced.  

"Awesome," was the only response that came to mind.  

"I’m a Dog," she announced proudly, and "my brother is a Rat," with even more pride.  

Just then the boy came closer to us.  

"I’m a Dragon," I announced, matter-of-factly. 

"WOAH!" They exclaimed with amazement and a hint of envy.  

…and then, our paths diverged again and Lexi and I headed home, but with the mark of a girl who has an amazing light on my mind.   

No Friday is Good when Lexi is here…if only that Lady at the bank would have given me all of Mom’s monies and the disguise like Lexi asked, I would not be here…*deep sigh* FIIIIINE.  Let’s just get this over with… #dogsofinstagram #dogs #lexi #bath #bathtime

Not so keen on the weather changing 30+ temps rapidly.  Mom put a jumper on me and is debating giving me aspirin.  Maybe not so many walks today or tomorrow.  At least Grandma was sympathetic.  #lexi #dogs #dogsofinstagram #weather
