Here We Go LexieLoo

"here we go lexie loo"
a song I sang to her
as she danced down the streets
like she had ants in her pants
after she was groomed.
she rubbed herself
into my heart
11 years ago,
she's 14 1/2 now.
I've known her since she came
from PJ's pet store
and even as a puppy she
pushed her way into the world
nosey and yappy
the queen of all the world
when her previous owner was hospitalized
she became my little girl
handfed for months
as her world changed
and mine did too.
I'd always had big dogs, great big galouts, not little things that wanted your lap.
Senitive she was to so much at first
Then she became the Queen
just took over, if you know what I mean :)
she has a bark that can break your mind

so forever she gets her own way.
For 11 years she has been at my hip
24/7 it's been an awesome trip
pushy and demanding
but sweet as can be
everyone who meets her wants to take her away
I always joke 'go ahead'
in under 2 seconds she back at my side
the fuss she'd make if I left her for a moment
it was easier to just take her with me !
which is why she got specail treatment .

Unique and wonderful this wonderful dog
is now full of tumours in liver and lungs
the drugs make her unable to move
so with dignity and grace
and tears upon my face
I say goodbye to the sweet little dog


  1. Reaching over to give you a big warm ((((HUG)))) and wrapping you up in love June, you're in my ♥ and in my thoughts...

    It saddened me to hear about little LexieLoo, I'm sorry for your loss. I've felt that aching pain before.. hoping you feel calm knowing that she's at peace now. As our good friends Abraham would say; she has re-emerged into pure positive energy ~ probably pushing her way in, nosey and yappy and always the queen! :0)

    Although it's difficult to see beyond the sorrow, may looking back in memory help comfort you tomorrow..

    Wishing you joyful remembrance now and forever, I feel her sweet spirit with tears in my eyes too. She reminds me of my own..

    Much love to you beautiful angel, sending waves of gratitude for your sharing, your courage, your love, your healing and of course, your pure sparkles. ~ ♥ ~

  2. My heart goes out to you, sweet June. You know far better than I that the love that LexieLoo has for you remains. It's been three and a half years since I lost my beautiful kitty, Jazz, to cancer. I was fortunate enough to have him in my life for 17 years. I still wake up sometimes and feel his weight and warmth in the small of my back. He would cuddle face-to-face with me until I fell asleep and then move to my back. When I lost him, the kind veterinarian who had taken care of him in his final weeks sent me a card about the Rainbow Bridge. I'm sure you know the poem. Even if your beliefs are different, I hope the promise of reunion will bring you some comfort ~

    Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge...
    When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food and water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable. All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.

    The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing: they miss someone very special to them; who had to be left behind. They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. The bright eyes are intent; the eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to break away from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster. YOU have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

    I love you, Junie, and I am so sorry for your loss. *hugs to wrap around your heart until the sadness lessens*
