Me Gots a New Sister!!!

Remember Us?
Sure has been RUFF 'round here since da Mommy went to work.  She is working six days a week and just doesn't seem to be able to keep up with things at home......'specially my blog.
BUTT...being da little blind weenie dog that I am....I thinks I's doing a PURRTY good job typing with my paws.

Me and Brudder Max turned 14 years old back in January.  And HER didn't even have a CAKE for us dis year.  BUTT, we loves her anyway.   {sigh}

Now for da good news....we gots a new SISTER.
To makes a long story short....she was found on the streets of Tampa as a stray and taken to a kill shelter.  She was on death row and due to...meet her maker.... the very afternoon that the "Find a Home--Give a Home" rescue came in and picked her up.

The shelter had her listed as "No Name".
The rescue named her "Broken Jaw".
Can you guess why???
She has a broken jaw that is so bad that it can't be repaired.  She was taken into foster care in Ft. Myers Beach where her foster mom gave her a new lease on life.

A month later her picture was posted on the "United Yorkie Rescue" site.  They think that she is a Yorkie-Cairn Terrier mix.  She weighed 8 pounds when she was found in Tampa back in February.  She now weighs 13 pounds.  Mom and Dad just happened to be browsing through the pictures and immediately fell in love with that little broken face.

The top of her nose points straight ahead but her bottom jaw veers off to the left.  There is nothing to hold her tongue in so her tongue is always hanging out.

Mom filled out the application and received a call a few days later to visit her at her foster home.  It was love at first sight.

There were 4 other applications that had to be considered but Mom and Dad won in the end and "Lexi" was delivered to our house by the rescue people.  They immediately knew they made the right decision when they saw how well we all got along.  And also commented that Mom and Dad built our house with us dogs in mind.

Lexi is about 1 year old now.  She has brought life back to a house full of senior dogs (and also a senior Mom and Dad...BOL)

My paws are getting tired of typing so here are pictures for you to enjoy...

Lexi just can't get enough of her squeaky toys.  Mom and Dad say they need ear plugs.

Lexi's best FURiend is Pepper.  Pepper never played this hard since she's been here.  But now the two of them never stop.

One of the bunch!

I can't see her BUTT I NOSE she's very special.
