Our Favorite Dog Treats/Photos in Honor of “Treats For Lexi Day”

We didn’t know our friend Lexi as long as many others, but we loved her just the same. We were in awe of her many accomplishments, and it deeply saddened us when she crossed the bridge.

Lexi’s boyfriend Noodle, created a special day in honor of Lexi:


Here is what Noodle had to say: 

“Before Lexi passed, she told me that the best way her friends could honor her would be to have their picture taken while eating their favorite treats.

As it was always (and still is) my goal to make her dreams come true, I am declaring Sunday, September 18, 2016, Treats for Lexi Day.”

Dakota and I decided that in honor of Lexi we would share some of our favorite treat photos in honor of Lexi.  We hope you enjoy them.

To honor our furiend Whitley who went to the Bridge on May 5, 2016:


We miss Whitley and we miss seeing her in all of her beautiful dresses that she was known to model like a pro! We also loved when she would talk about all of the happenings in the great State of Texas where she lived. So, we are helping to honor the life of Sweet Whitley with this photo:

We hope if she sees this while she is playing with her furiends at the Bridge that she will like it and know that we love her and miss her!

We will miss so many things about you sweet Whitley. Your “smile”, how you played “pool ball”, all of the delicious food that you ate, and the stories of your adventures.

Thank you for always making us smile and we send special love to your incredibly strong Mama.

Barks and licks and love, 

Dakota and Mom
