Our new family member

Meet Lexie.... she is an almost 5 year old Jack Russell Terrier... and a sweetheart.... the kids just love her! We adopted her through a rescue here in SLC...www.Caws.org.  She was in the pound (due to be put down) until CAWS rescued her.  Her foster family was great to her... her foster dad is even a dog trainer... so needless to say she is very well behaved, and has a lot of energy! (not a barker either)   I am hoping this will motivate my family more to be outside walking not just for her but for them as well.  I know I am going to take advantage of it!!  Zoe and I walk her in the afternoons for about 30-45 mins with a stop at the park...Oh sorry both parks really.. there are 2 on our street... and on our walk route...  Tyler got up this morning and went on a run with her... not sure how far... but he said is was energizing!  YEAH!!  And I made Rex go last night with Lexie and Tyler for an evening walk.  Here is a few of Zoe and Lexie at the park...

Hi Cheryl!! Lexie is sooooo cute!! Thank goodness she was not put down! How wonderful to be able to give this sweetie the home she deserves! A home without a dog is just to darn calm and quiet. ;) Regarding the doggie card, I am sorry to say that it was a couple of years old. I am quite sure it was from October Afternoon and I think it was the "Ducks in a Row" line but can't be certain. Scrapping sweet Lexie will be so much fun! There are amazing dog papers out. BG "Max and Whiskers" is lovely and I seem to think that Pebbles has a new animal themed line out. Have fun!! :)
