I still remember the day her mom and dad brought her home. She was actually a present for her Daddy's 25th birthday. Apparently the minute they locked eyes, there was no turning back.
Yep, that's little Lexus cradled in Ryan's arms. She really was THAT small!
And even though we were entertained, Lexus quickly became bored with all of our antics!
So bored that she actually fell asleep!
When Deb was pregnant a few years back, Ryan painted her tummy to look like a pumpkin. Lexus joined in on the Halloween fun and dressed up like a witch.
And while I do harbor some guilt over my part in the "dress-up" years, my one assurance that life is okay for this little dog is her unnatural but healthy love affair with a stuffed monkey. He goes by the name Rafiki. You many remember him from The Lion King. He got rave reviews, but that lame lion cub completely stole his thunder. Anyway, I digress... From the moment my mom brought out Rafiki, Lexus' life has never been the same. They play together, watch TV together, snuggle together and they even do something else together. Well, Rafiki doesn't really have a say about it, but he's always wearing a smile!
She dances through life with her Rafiki in tow.
She jumps, she barks, she kisses with tongue.
Who knew loving Lex-Pup would be so much fun!
