Hi - my name is Lexi!
Can you tell what kind of dog I am? Yep - I'm a Siberian Husky. If you look at other dogs of my breed, you'll see that I'm much more beautiful than they are and look at my blue eyes. Frank Sinatra - eat your heart out. I'm a girl dog, although I won't be able to have puppies and I'm OK with that. I'm about 1 1/2 years old. I can't remember a lot about my past but I'm a rescue dog.
I bet you can't guess where I've come from? Oh come on - guess.......... It's a long long way away. Starts with the letter Q. I had to come here by airplane. Give up? I used to live in Qatar!!!!
I guess someone wanted a beautiful, friendly dog like me, but they didn't think about my thick coat of fur in the hot climate of Qatar. Fortunately, this great rescue organization called Moringas Mission rescued me and brought me to Canada. Then they put my picture on Petfinder and that's how my new mom found me. The people at Moringas Mission have been very nice to me - they let me stay with a foster mom and her daughter and they were the best people. They made me feel comfortable and I was very happy there. I even had two foster dogs to play with - Morgan and Lucy. Good thing too because my name was Lucy and since my foster mom already had a Lucy, she changed my name to Lexi. I like Lexi much better.
My new parents came to see me a while back. They loved me - well who wouldn't. Look at my face. I'm adorable!!!! Then I stayed with my foster mom for a while longer as I was still getting all my needles (I hate needles!) and then I was ready to come to my new home.
I LOVE to travel! And I love to ride in the car. But WHOA - what's this thing my new mom is pointing at me??? A camera? What's a camera? OH - it takes pictures.
|Whoa - get that thing away from me!|

I have to say that I love my new home. I got a sister - some old dog called Little Sammy. We get along OK and I keep trying to play with her but she isn't quite ready yet. Boy - is she old!
But my most favourite thing at my new house is the backyard. Wowie!!!!! I love the backyard!!!!!
|Look at me - in the backyard|
|My tongue is hanging out from running|
|Behind the hot tub|
|Other side of the hot tub|
|In the corner behind the shed|
|The path to the back gate|
|The back gate - holy cow - there is a HUGE forest on the other side!|
|The other back corner|
|Climbing the rocks|
|Just sitting - watching - waiting..........|
And if I can't be outside - I'll be watching from indoors.
|A nice mat to keep my butt cushy while I watch and wait|
|There are squirrels!!!!! Let me out!!!!|
|It's an exhausting job - but someone has to do it!|
And my mom says I have a very twisty body. Did you know that I can turn my head around almost 360 degrees - whatever that means! But I love to look behind me and above me and I just turn my head - not my body. My mom hasn't quite got a picture of me doing it - I'm just so fast.
|My twisty head|
|No - I wasn't sleeping!|
|Not sleeping here either!|
While I have loads of energy, I'm not a high maintence dog. Nope - I can play by myself. I have my own baseball which I can entertain myself with for a long time. That Little Sammy just freaked out the first time I started to play. I dropped the ball on the floor - it made a big noise and Little Sammy thought someone was at the door and went barking like an idiot. I loved it!!!! Now she is used to that ball bouncing and I have a tennis ball as well and I play with them both.
|Playing ball by myself|
I'm a very gentle dog. When my mom gives me a cookie, I sit very nicely and then politely take the cookie from her hand. Then I go and eat my cookie. I love treats and I have learned very quickly where they are kept. But they are behind a door so I guess I won't be able to snag them when no one is looking.
|Eating a cookie|
The very first day I was here - that was Sunday, my mom took Little Sammy and me to the library. Smells - smells - smells - there are so many new smells all along the way. I was very well behaved. And Little Sammy and I are quite happy together - although she is still suspicious of me. She's not sure I'm staying - but I'm staying. She can go - I love it here!!!!!
|Lexi and Sammy checking out new smells|
My mom said that we couldn't go into the library so we had to wait outside. Look at us waiting patiently for mom to come back. See - I wasn't even interested in those people as they walked by. Yep - I'm a good dog!!!!!
|Waiting at the library|
Wow - wow - wow - did I luck out to get chosen to come and live with my new mom. She is the best - I love her already and I love the guy too. I get to sleep right beside my mom all night - I'm good and don't wake them up but I need to go out into the backyard first thing every day. I have to make sure that NO ONE is there.
I have to go - it's time for our W A L K and then we get breakfast.
Have a great day!!!!!
Ciao!!!! Woof woof!!!!
