dog daze

There's not a day my dog isn't capable of improving (typically by inducing some laughter). Lexie's been photographed quite a bit but I don't have too many photos of me with my dog. She instinctively knew as soon as I got home that I was not feeling well today. She was being sweeter and more playful than usual. It needed to be documented. If you've ever lived with or cared for an animal, you will understand this type of sentimentality. 

And the one in the center of Lexie with her paw up, that's a rarely captured moment of her saying 'hi' (...yes, I taught her how to do that).


rewarding cuteness : lexie

Not a day goes by that Lexie doesn't make me laugh or smile. This photo in particular captures so much of what she's like. Not to mention those big brown eyes. She's so sweet, patient and obedient that she actually allowed me to take several tries at documenting this moment while holding perfectly still! Not unlike any other dog, she's dying to have that piece of chicken breast jerky (only her favourite treat). But she waited. She looked so incredibly adorable doing it. I had to share.

By the way, she was rewarded two-fold after this photo was taken (I'm not that cruel).

lexie and her cousins

I'm not sure how I will be able to pry Lexie away from her "cousins" in Toronto after the holidays. I've haven't seen her have this much fun since my last trip here. My sister and brother-in-law's dogs (Buddy and Jupiter) kill me. How ridiculously adorable are they together? Good lord.
