Lexus came to us Jan. 17, 2007, from Tiffany Yeary of Zabesii Cockers.  She was born Sept. 1, 2006.  If you notice, Lexie has a white streak above her right eye that looks just like Harry Potter's scar, as well as another on her lower back!  Because of the resembelance, we often call her "Harry Potter Dog".

Marita has often said that our first cocker, Nikki, came to teach us unconditional love.  I think also that Lexus came to teach us unbounded joy.  Watching her run and play is to see pure joy moving in the world!  She gladdens our hearts and puts our lives in perspective.

Lexus died quickly and unexpectedly today.  We are grieving and already miss her deeply.  Just two days ago she was running sprints, filled with joy.  How fragile and fleeting our lives are!

Lexie did not make very many friends, but those she did she loved enormously.  She was quite vocal in both her love and her disapproval.  Though the mail and UPS carriers may breathe easier, we will miss deeply our loyal and loving friend.

"The dog up and died, he up and died
And after 20 years he still grieves"

Well, if you want MY opinion... Beach bum Lexus
Aren't I just the cutest thing? 'Christopher' Lexus Playing with her 'baby'
