Lexie was born Feb. 9, 1998 and left her earthly life on Nov. 24, 2013 to cross over the Rainbow Bridge.  She was 15 yrs. and 9 mos. old.  She was a miniature dachshund with a huge personality.  She was always such a happy girl.  In her early years she loved sleeping between my husband and myself.  As she got older and could no longer get up on the bed, we bought her a dog bed which she really enjoyed sleeping in.  She was always so active and loved being involved in anything we were doing.  We adopted a stray golden retriever about 10 years ago, Tanner, who became her best buddy.  She followed him around everywhere and did everything he did.  She may have been little, but never backed down from anything.  She enjoyed running and playing in the yard.  One of her favorite things to do was take off running through the house and then nose diving onto the rug in the living room.  She always had a way of making us laugh.  Because she was around our other furry babies which are cats, we always said she must think she is a cat because she loved to groom herself the way the cats did.  Only in the last year did she really start to slow down; she starting losing her eyesight and her hearing.  Within this past year, she had pretty much lost both completely.  But she was such a trooper, she carried on best she could with the disability.  One thing she never missed was a chance to follow you into the kitchen for a treat.  She could feel the vibration when you walked past her.  We have so many wonderful memories, it would take pages to say how special she was.  In the end, she was so brave.  She lost the use her hind legs on her last day here on earth.  I think she knew and we also knew 'it was time'.  We called the vet and they met us up there.  We were able to hold her and say goodbye to her and she passed gently and quietly with us giving her kisses.  We miss you and love you Lexie and will see you again on the other side.  Thank you for letting us be your forever family and for owning us as long as you did.
