Lexi Nitz passed away 10/30/09
Our dog Lexi was 13 years old when we put her to sleep. She was the best dog ever. She was a chocolate lab who up until a week before her death acted as if she was a puppy.
She started acting funny, and when we brought her in she was diagnosed with cancer. She rapdily declined so we had her put down so she would not suffer, any longer as she was not herself anymore.
She loved long walks, woods, eating anything and everything in sight. She ate a whole bag of sugar from grandma's house when we stayed the night.
She had such a personality. She loved walks so much she would do flips in excitement. She loved her daddy. They were together a lot, hunting and in the woods. She was always loving to you. Her tail always wagging.
She could be so naughty at times and she knew when she was because she could not even look at you. She loved to be petted. She would take her head and encourage more petting if she felt it was not enough. She was lazy sometimes when eating and drinking. She would do it laying down.
She did not like when she was left out and tied up while we were talking with neighbors. She would bark like crazy. She would always let us know when someone was at the door.
She loved to play. She LOVED tennis balls and playing fetch. She grazed the grass like she was a horse. She had the funniest looks.
We miss her so much. There is such a void in our house. We miss our Lexi- nicknames (da baby, tooters, princess, footies, football, mommas baby and many more).
You're at peace now and probably relaxing and looking forward to taking your walks whenever you want.
R.I.P. Lexi. You will be in our hearts forever
