I've been threated twice by the local park's park host to walk the ENTIRE three mile trail with Lexi on a leash. I've been threatened to lose visitation rights on the college campus if I allow my dog, Lexi, to sleep on the porch in housing one more time. I've been told that she, being mostly Rottweiler, and Doberman Pinschers are the two most common breeds to obtain the pathogen Parvo which kills many dogs every year. Having Lexi has been the best thing I've ever done for myself.
I only wish, I knew I human being, with the exception of Ellen Degeneres, who could make the number of people smile that Lexi has. Being a 65lb. Rottweiler, she's as friendly and as excited to see people as a starving, stranded group of people on a deserted island. If kisses and hugs could kill, Lexi would be a notorious, cereal killer. Every depressed person in the world would be healed if they could only watch her ungraceful gallop, as she chases McKenna on her scooter at the park. Her ears tucked back and her hind legs kick out as she tromples after that wheeled monster/thing. I can play with her Rottweiler, kneck rolls; mold them into shapes under chin. She spins in circles, rolls over and lays down for treats and lives to get her three cups of daily Iams/Science diet food. I buy her a stuffed animal a month and her remains her month, nearly the entire time. Taking care of Lexi has helped me take better care of myself and bring smiles to many faces. I love my dog.
