Leaping Lexi Cronier

On May 2, 2006 Lexi came into my life as a teacher, not only to teach me unconditional love but also to help me get over my childhood fear of dogs. 

When I decided to get a dog, I really was uneducated as far as rescue/puppy mills etc. and I found her in a pet shop.  

The lady handed Lexi to me, Lexi put her head on my shoulder, and that was it, I needed to take her home. 

Having no experience with dogs I was grateful for the obedience training with Melissa from Metro Mutts. 

As a Pomeranian Poodle mix Lexi proved to be very smart and learned quickly.  When she was a pup she would lunge at me and try to play bite.  Through the training I was able to understand this behaviour and we quickly moved on to a close loving relationship. 

As a pup Lexi had quite a bit of brown colour to her coat, therefore I was quite surprised when after her first groom she was white.  Still cute as a button.  

We had so much fun together.  She loved to run free along pathways and parks.  She had 100% recall when we were away from home but at home she would not listen as she knew where her house was.    

When I had her off leash on walks she would run ahead and then suddenly stop and look back to make sure I was still there.

She loved the snow, running in it, sticking her head underneath to see what treasures there could be under the snow.  She always made me laugh.

Lexi loved agility.  She was a very active dog for most of her life. Unfortunately, she ended up with cancer on a toe and had to have it removed but recovered nicely and was cancer free for many years.  

Later in life she injured ligaments in her ankle and had to have physio and laser treatments at Canine Conditioning and I also took her for regular chiropractic appointments with Dr. Tracy Drynan.

She had to wear a special brace for a while.  Yet she was still a very happy dog throughout all of her medical issues.  

She also ended up with an enlarged liver. 

You would never know she had gone through all of these issues as she was still active and happy. 

Then all of a sudden on August 11, 2022 Lexi was panting heavily and it was obvious that she was having difficulty.  

I knew it was her time to leave me and my Vet Dr. Rachel Thomas confirmed it.  

I am thankful for Dr. Thomas’s compassion during my Lexi’s passing.  It was very peaceful, she just went into a deep sleep. 

It was the hardest thing I ever had to do, to say goodbye to my dog that I loved with all my heart but I did not want her to suffer. 

Rest in Peace my little angel, until we meet again.
