[Life] VDay, or the Birthday Pup

Today is February 14th. To many, it's a day to celebrate love, since it is St. Valentine's Day. I've never been a huge Valentine's Day fan - it's all so manufactured, yadda yadda yadda, blah blah blah. Now, to me, it celebrates a different kind of love, as February 14th is the day we've chosen to celebrate our pup's birthday.

We rescued Lexi in June of 2010. We have no idea how old she is, and we have a vague idea of her story (it includes her being a bait dog to train other dogs how to fight). What we do know is this - she's a nearly perfect pooch and we love her to pieces. (Side note: here is where I tell you that rescue dogs are the best. If you're thinking about a dog or a cat - please rescue! They have nothing but love for you - and older dogs are often already housebroken, which is way better than having to be up all night with a puppy!! Rescue!! Please!!!)

she's totally chewing on her face.

We got really lucky - we rescued Lexi from the Atlanta Boxer Rescue, and she's been an angel. You've seen those dogs on Dogshaming, with torn up beds and chewed up shoes. Perhaps you even own a dog that occasionally knocks over the garbage can looking for a treat. Lexi, on the other hand, is lazy. She has no interest in exerting the energy to chew anything other than the lady bug sitting right in front of her face, nor is she interested in making an effort to find out what's on the counters, in the garbage, or in the cabinets.

So today, we celebrate Lexi. It's a day of love, and the hubs and I love her very much. Tonight we'll be celebrating with ice cream for us and a doggie sundae for Lex, which she will undoubtedly chase around the Bruester's patio while attempting to lick up every last drop. How are you celebrating today?

oh, those JOWLS!


  1. Lexi is SO cute! That is such a neat idea that you celebrate her birthday today. We should start doing the same for Jinx. (he was found on the street so we also don't know how old he is or know anything about his background). And Oliver belongs on Dogshaming. :)
